The FCFSC works with skaters and parents to create original, high-quality costumes. Program fees cover all costume needs, except tights/skate socks and undergarments in some cases. You should not purchase costumes yourself without consulting the director.
Each program will have a unique costume, and all skaters will be in two programs – the large group number and one mini-ensemble.
Skaters will need a different costume for each ensemble they participate in, and many skaters bring an additional costume for any solo or duet numbers they do (but this is not required).
Skaters are responsible for keeping track of all parts of their own costumes, ensuring they are in good repair, and bringing them to all dress rehearsals. We recommend you store costumes with all pieces together in a garment bag if possible and avoid using it for other purposes until after the competition.
Costumes must be returned to EPIC Productions at the end of the season and remain the property of EPIC Production.
About Props & Scenery
Props and scenery factor into judges’ scores when they help enhance the stories our programs are telling.
For each ensemble number, we create a backdrop related to its story. These are light, portable, and collapsible (for transport).
Props and scenery will be kept at EPIC rink or in another centralized location by the program coordinators. All props and scenery remain the property of EPIC Productions.
