The countdown begins NOW!
A hundred days to Halloween! New costumes are arriving daily—how many UPS and FedEx drivers can there be, and all going to Frankel’s. So many costumes, so little time. More than 57,000 rental costumes live at Frankel’s year round. Maybe it’s time to do a little dress-up. Come on down and try something on. If you can’t find a rental you must have, we have almost as many different costumes for sale.
Let your imagination run wild! Who do you want to be this year? Britney? Marilyn? Elvis, Michael or Beyoncé? Anything is possible. The staff is trained to make it happen. Within limits, of course. Making a supermodel out of an 800 pound gorilla is going to be a little difficult. But the closet mistress has been known to work miracles and magic before. Maybe she will do it for you.
Sometimes the smallest accessory makes all the difference. Where would the French maid be without her little feather duster? Or a senorita without her black lace fan? The movies have an impact on our imagination—do you have an inner star that’s screaming to come out? Let it shine! You could be the Mad Hatter (we have several versions, all worthy of Johnny Depp) or you could be the Red Queen. We might even be able to find you a pig. Or cover it all up entirely and be the White Rabbit complete with a large ticking pocket watch. C’mon Alice, you’ll be late. Come to the tea party as whoever YOU wanna be. And check out our tea party display coming soon at 2801 Polk. Check the website for directions.
Being a pirate might be fun–carry your own personal bottle of rum, what’s your favorite—how about the only rum made in Texas. The parrot might be a little messy, though, unless he gets his ration of rum.
Sumo wrestler? Geisha? Dance hall girl? John Wayne? Or if you’ve got the right curves, maybe you could be an avatar. A bit of a challenge, but remember, whatever you can dream, Frankel’s can dress you for the part.
Seriously, put some thought into this. Don’t wait till October 29, there will be lines around the block waiting their turn for a dressing room. You have ONE HUNDRED DAYS starting today. Find something outrageous—creative—FUN! I’m looking forward to hearing about your ideas. Let me hear from you. I’ll answer as many questions as I can. And come on down to the store for inspiration!
