Through a set of doors is the workshop, where costumes are made, repairs are carried out, and garments are cycled in and out to the laundry and dry cleaner. On the far wall are patterns used to create their most popular costumes. “On a very rare occasion, we’ll source things from thrift stores,” says Williamson. “Like right now, we’re out of white shirts and we need 25. But that’s not how we normally do it. Costumes are supposed to be built so they last and so they have a certain look.”
