Dos Visit Fringe and Tassel Costume shop

There is a little costume shop downtown Lincoln, Nebraska, that I absolutely love. It ´s packed with animal heads and monster gear. And people come here to get their costumes for Halloween, Christmas, Mardi Gras or other special occasion. I come here to get inspired and last time I was in town I asked if I could take some photographs.

Phyllis has had the place for ages and she has made most of the rentals herself. Ward also works here, he helps out behind the scenes, when I came to visit I found him way back by the Star Wars mask. Behind the counter; Paul is in charge, he also works as an artistic theater director in town.

Costumes are so much fun, and I leave thinking : “We all should dress up more”
