Universal Studios Operations Group has announced the opening of the Universal Production Services Costume Department in New York. The renovated facility in Long Island City provides costume rental services for features, television, streaming, independents, theatre and commercials in New York and across the East Coast.
The costume rental space has been customized for New York-based costume professionals with enclosed loading docks and parking, as well as a client lounge, organized racks and fitting rooms. The inventory includes assets from the 1950s to the present, police, SWAT, FBI uniforms, hospital wardrobes and more.
Universal Studios Costume updates their inventory regularly with new assets acquired from features and television, offering services to costumers and designers in all areas of production. A wide-ranging collection of items, including armor and specialty costumes, is also available for shipment from the Universal City warehouse in Los Angeles. In addition, Universal Studios Costume offers their Digital Design Workroom. Garments can be created in an online 3D environment using talent measurements, fabric type and color, and overall fit. The software simulates draping, accounting for fabric weight and texture. The 360 design files can be emailed for remote approval and are then converted into a pattern that can be printed on-site.
