My name is Carol Hughes. I'm the owner of Custom Costumes of Rochester. I've been a costumer for 26 years now, and this is how you can dress as your favorite celebrity. This is an example of one of my Elvis costumes. We have a lot of these in all different sizes, and every year we rent a bunch of them. This Elvis is a two-piece, matching pant and jacket, with a sequin design on both the jacket, and in the flare of the pants. I've tied a red scarf around the neck of the outfit, which is typical for the way he dressed. On the head, of course, is an Elvis wig, and a pair of big, oversized aviator glasses. A really popular costume last year was Michael Jackson. This is his "Thriller" outfit. It is a two-pieced red vinyl outfit with black vinyl accents. It is comprised of a jacket and pants. The wig is a big, curly, Jheri curl wig, and you can see that we have added his famous sequin glove as an accessory. Finally, for the ladies, here is Madonna. In the '80s, Madonna started a fashion craze by wearing her underwear on the outside. Here, the outfit is a fancy bustier with the famous oversize cones over the bust. This top is paired with a small black crinoline, and a feather boa. You could probably add fishnets to this, and, of course, some short boots. Thank you for coming into my shop today. My name is Carol Hughes, and I'm the owner of Custom Costumes of Rochester. And, this is how you become a celebrity.
