If you're looking for bespoke costumes for your theatrical production, event, museum or living history group, then you've come to the right place!
We make reenactment, fanstasy and theatrical costumes, from maids, monks and monsters to sci-fi/horror and the weird and wonderful!
All images and costume designs on this website are subject to copyrite
Please note that as all costumes are constructed entirely from scratch - and not bought in from other suppliers - there may be a waiting list to design/make your items.
We are currently booked until April 2013, but will consider projects for after this time.
What we do:
We offer a bespoke costume design and make service and can also restore or reshape existing costumes. Ronnie's passion lies in historical costumes, particularly those from the 1400s - 1800s. She also is very experienced in theatrical and burlesque costumes which break apart in an innovative way. All costumes are fully researched; Ronnie has an extensive costume library and collection of historical patterns drawn from original sources and she is also very experienced at pattern adapting and devising in the case of new creations.
Anything is possible - if you have an idea or theme, drop me an email and I'll help you make it a reality. I can provide you with designs only (prices range from £20 per design - fully inclusive of research and fabric suggestions) right through to the final ready-to-wear costume. All costumes can be shipped (via TNT) worldwide. Please note that a deposit of 20% will be taken as confirmation of your design with the rest payable on commencement.
All Ronnie's costumes are hand made (some for the living history groups have been hand-sewn and fabricated in authentic materials) to order, so please allow adequate time from design to finished product.
We do not hold any costume stock, although sometimes we do sell off samples via ebay - keep an eye on our blog and our facebook page for news...
A short history:
Ronnie Kerswell-O'Hara has been making costumes for over two decades. Running the actor's company at The London Dungeon in the late 1990s, she progressed to making costumes for the company, together with those for other Dungeons including York and subsequently new additions to the Dungeons group including The Edinburgh Dungeon.
Having re-located from London to South Wales, Ronnie has continued to make costumes for the Dungeons brand, which now includes Amsterdam, Warwick Castle Dungeon and Blackpool Tower Dungeon. She has also designed and supplied costumes for high profile attractions such as the Dali Universe on London's South Bank, various living history attractions including Llancaiach Fawr Manor in Wales, together with a whole host of theatre productions and selected burlesque artists.
