    Smile Anybody worked in Costuming area before?

    I would love to know what Costuming job are like and any tips? This is prehap interesting kind of job for me.

    Do costuming get to travels to different locations in all parks to hand out the costumes to people that need it for their jobs?

    Do they mostly work in back stage than walk through the parks? for example, the tunnels?

    hope to hear from you guys!

    This is stuff I have gotten from my friend, who is in entertainment costuming at MK:
    *You either work in general or entertainment costuming. If you are in general costuming, you stay in costuming (the CMs come there to get their costumes). And if you are in entertainment costuming, you assist the performers in prepping their stuff. Or if you work in a show, you go there and help the performers.

    *Costuming is all backstage. The only time you would go onstage is to walk to your location at DHS or AK (which don't have the best of backstage areas, unlike MK and Epcot).

    I hope this makes sense.

    Smile Re: Anybody worked in Costuming area before?

    oh yeah Thank you joanna! That do make sense to me now and i understand about two different sections for costuming. that must be very interesting to learn more about costuming and I rarely hear anything aobut people work in costuming. Only mostly at attractions or food business and custradion( msp sorry its late night). rarely other roles are really explained here on forum.

    Anyway, I hope people will eventually discussing more about their roles that they already experienced and that rarely discussed in the forum.

    Joanna- Thank you for take your time to talk to your friend about costuming!!!!
