“Heroines with Heart” The Enchanted Cellar Costume Rentals
“Heroines with Heart” celebrates the courageous young women of folklore and literature and is this year’s theme for The Enchanted Cellar, a costume rental service operated by the UC Davis College of Letters and Science’s Department of Theatre and Dance.
This season the Enchanted Cellar will hold a costume sale featuring select costumes and accessories from the collection. Beginning Oct. 18, there will be an opportunity to participate in a special raffle with prizes such as fairy wings and mask sets, skull mugs and a free costume kit rental as grand prize. Individuals will earn one raffle ticket for showing up, a second ticket if they bring a friend (who also earns tickets) and a third ticket if you rent a costume kit. Drawings will be held on October 20 and 27 at 4pm. Winner does not need to be present to win!
The collection features inspired by “Game of Thrones,” “Harry Potter,” “Star Wars” and “Star Trek” characters along with movie stars and superheroes, fairies, and original Steampunk. Many iconic fashion periods are represented too, such as the 1920s, Victorian England and the French Court of Marie Antoinette.
“We have kits starting at $35 which include all accessories head-to-toe,” said Roxanne Femling, director of the costume shop. “Or people can make an individual appointment with one of our costume consultants who will make up a kit from our stock and customers can put together their own character. Come have fun with it!”
The Enchanted Cellar is located in Room 17 on the lower level of Wright Hall, on campus near the Pitzer Center. Although appointments are preferred, walk-in hours are Oct. 18-20 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Oct. 25-28 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Oct. 30-31 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
