What a Costumer Does Meme

A friend sent this to me years ago, and I have not been able to trace it to its first appearance.

It uses the format of the Know Your Meme site — brilliantly — to show how the work of a professional costumer appears to other people we meet (scroll down for larger images.)

  1. love it! not a costumer but if i hear ‘why dont you sell them’ one more time…… but in truth its better than ‘must get you to run up………’

    • Thanks for your comment — perhaps we could make a list…. And I was always saying, “No, I don’t do bridal dresses.” (Although that’s just my fear of Bridezillas speaking — most of the costumers I know need part-time work!

  2. Yes, the “glamour” actually consists more of dirty laundry and repairs to smelly stock costumes than anything else. Most people think that costumes “just happen.”
