Costume Resources

     This is a free list of costuming resources for your Christian plays and skits. We cannot recommend any of these companies because we have never done business with any of them. So, buyer beware. I will tell you that these companies sell all kinds of patterns, already made costumes, props, and the like. There should be sufficient resources here to completely equip any show, play, or movie you can think of.

Note: Apple Sauce Kids has installed several "AUTO NET SEARCHes". When you click on one, Apple Sauce Kids automatically goes to YaHoo and looks for the latest information on that topic. These searches are FREE, and only take a few seconds.

    2. Make Believe by Klutz Press, If you are looking for really cheap costume ideas
        for kids, this book has some great ones. Designed around back yard plays and
        the like, it does not have any costumes for Israel at the time of Christ, but it 
        does have some great ideas for more modern costumes. I really liked stringing
        the gummy bears together to make a necklace, and cutting up a large clear
        plastic soda bottle to make a princess crown.
