One thing that I have noticed isn't talked about too much is costumes. We always get into walls, sounds, video and lighting and other aspects of the show but I hardly read anything on costumes. As much as I'd like a guide for make-up ideas aside from just prosthetic make-up, but paint make-up as well, I also want to ask about wardrobe!

Does your haunt purchase or build costumes? Buy the big ticket main character costume and have regular actors just dress in all black? Make all your own costumes?

How does your haunt go about purchasing or making costumes based on size? Do you know what type of actor you want to hire for a part and construct their costume based on that? (ie. pre-done size and you hire for that body type?) Do you hire and alter the costume later?

Thanks in advance!
