I wanted a old fashioned family portrait dressed in 17th century french revolutionary costumes. We planned this a couple of months in advance and had costumes made at BRUNA Costumes in Prov. R.I. The mad a blue velvet and satin costume for my 3 year old. My husband had a rose colored Louie Auguste outfit including the shoes and socks and matching hat. My wig made me about 6ft tall. It was great. Thanks to Bruna Costumes for the excellent deal that they gave us on the rentals. We wouldn't be able to do it without them.
Pros: open minded
Cons: not sure
