Costume

    The Universal Studios Costume department offers a multitude of services to costumers and designers for every area of film work: movies, television, commercials, videos and stills. Besides the 27 double hung rows of rentable clothing and costumes, we offer office space and cage space, walkabout costumes, armor and specialty costumes, women’s and men’s alteration and dressmaking, a Gold Room of higher end clothing, and dressing rooms for fitting actors. Costume projects working out of our offices have 24/7 access to their offices and cages.

    Since all of our clients work on a project to project basis, we make every effort to keep up with their needs. We have photo areas in the stock room and dressing rooms so that they can get immediate approval on costumes via email. Our staff can help find and accessorize any outfit efficiently, as we offer a large selection of period and modern jewelry and accessories. We are committed to offering remote services by emailing costume pictures to costumers working in the field. We also offer the Edith Head Costume Research Library which was made possible by a generous donation from The Costume Designers Guild.  The collection offers an easy, convenient resource for the costume community to consult fashion periodicals and reference books for a range of time periods.  Research assistance is available from the Costume department staff.

    The Universal Studios Costume department receives clothing assets from Universal Pictures features and we process new acquisitions immediately to augment our clothing and costume inventory. We strive to make coming to Universl Studios a comfortable shopping experience.

    For everyone's benefit, Universal Studio Costume department has implemented a new hold policy for the Warehouse!
     
    Anyone who was pulling in our warehouse at the end of last year knows how crowded and chaotic the center aisle became. We realized pulling here was frustrating at best and potentially dangerous in an emergency. To alleviate the congestion, we have implemented a new hold system in the warehouse. New colored One Week Hold tags can be found in the front of the warehouse. Any hold with a colored tag will be held for only one week and then restocked.  If you need to have your pull held longer, please ask staff for a Multi-Week Hold tag, which is on white card stock. Multi-Week holds are good for 3 weeks. If you need a longer hold, please talk to David Swope (Costume Supervisor).

    We also ask that after you have brought your write up to the Bullpen to be processed and you have stock left in the warehouse, please sort it by Men’s, Women’s and Kid’s and let staff know if you can’t restock it yourself.

    We hope that these new policies help to make pulling at Universal Studios Costume a pleasant experience.
