Carmona Costume Closet




 Yes, it is true. I am a woman of many hats

My costumes are decent, modest and not vulgar. I do not get into the evil realm nor anything sadistic or even remotely sexual. I am mostly interested in period costumes representing different historical times or depicting specific characters for plays and skits. If you are looking for horror costumes you will not find it here.

Medieval Period ~ 14th Century Period Costumes

I designed these costumes for a high school play. Costumes will fit mature teens or young adults. The costumes are colorful made of quality materials with interesting textures. Many of them shimmer or sparkle in the stage lights. They have been used in high school plays, church parties, and church Vacation Bibles Schools. Over time this collection has expanded with more costumes from the same period.

Pirate Costumes

I do not know why playing pirates are so much fun. We have used the pirate theme for Vacation Bible Schools where I painted a big ship out of peices of cardboard. The children loved the sword fighting. I have a collection of various pirate accessories to create different pirate costumes for both boys and girls. Below are my children dressed as pirates for a school spirit week. Pirate costumes are one of the esiest costumes to throw together. I have a small collection of children's swords and few curly wigs.

Roman Soldier Costumes

I had designed these costumes for a church Vacation Bible School many years ago. I have enough costumes to outfit a small army consiting of nine separate outfits.  The hats did not hold up because they were made of paper mache. I currenlty only have one plastic helmet but want to build my collection. The swords and shields in the photos below were made of wood that the children had lots of fun playing with so I do not have them anymore. But the rest of the costumes are still in great condition. One full costume consists of tunic, padded breast plate, arm bands, leg bands, skirt and cape. I have three different colored armor, 4 gold, 3 silver, and 1 bronze. One outfit was made to look dark to represent the bad guy that the good soldiers had to fight against. Eight of the nine costumes have breast plates. Five of the nine costumes have full armor including breast plate, arm bands, and leg bands. One outfit is extra large for a tall person who played the King in a VBS skit. The tunics run small, medium, and large.

Prairie Days Costumes

Years ago one of my churches started at anual event called "Old Fashioned Day" where everyone was encouraged to dress up. I had fun decorating the church with quilts, lanterns, old maps, and any relic that made it feel old. Many of the ladies wore bonnets and prairie skirts, while the guys dressed like old farmers or cowboys. Sometimes the ladies would dress Victorian. That was when I started sewing bonnets from a pattern that I had made. I have a collection of bonnets and some of them have matching skirts.

Victorian Period Costumes

The Victorian Period is one of my favorite periods when men were fine gentlemen and ladies were elegant ladies. I love the elegance and grace that was displayed during that time frame and I love Victorian decor. One time our church had a Victorian Christmas Party where we dressed up in Victorian clothes. I decorated the fellowship hall with Victorian decorations and we sang old hyms that were typical of the Victorian era. When I used to live in upstate New York I used to love shopping in old shops picking up Victorian articles of clothing. I have also aquired some Victorian style patterns and would love to sew more costumes.

Costumes Around the World

Each year my children's school presented an International Fair where they had to present one country of the world with fact and information about the country, serve a recipe from that country and dress in the countries typical attire. Churches often have International Dinners during missions week where they serve different international dishes. Some add costumes to add a little more taste of the international scene. One church has a Parade of Nations with various costumes. So I have collected a few different costumes and assesories to represent some countries.
