Berman and Company is a wonderful costume rental house in Toronto that I adore visiting. Accumulating costumes from the archives of the CBC and acquiring pieces from past productions, it is always a variable treasure hunt.
I sneaked in the other day to get one little, not very exciting thing (maybe bad-guy werewolf boots) and started to envision stories that the costumes could play a part in. Not sure why films are not written around the wardrobe? Maybe script writers need to visit Berman for inspiration.
And what about these sombreros and fancy pants together? Magic, pure magic I say.
And they always have a lovely welcoming display that makes you want to re-invent the outfit you showed up in.
Lovely staff too. Such a joy to visit.
Just love dressing up, dressing other people up and talking about it. A lot. And laughing too.
