Hi Mommies!

Just want to ask if you know of a store specializing in costumes? My son, Jared, and niece, Lyanna, are both in Nursery and they're representing Korea during their UN celebration on Oct. 27.

So far, I've been browsing the net for pics of Korean Hanbok or the traditional dress so I could have it customized na lang by a dressmaker.

It would be better and easier sana if we can just buy ready-made dresses.

Thanks in advance!

@stayhomemom, Sorry po pero walang costume ang France. I searched on this before at nahirapan ako. In my search, I found out that France doesn't have an official national costume, parang USA.
Franch dresses depends on the social status (peasant or aristocrat), era and region.
You can go for those worn by Kings/nobles, yung may white curly wig, coat, ruffled tie, black pants na hanggang tuhod, white knee socks and closed leather shoes. Female version nun is ala-Marie Antoinette.

The SP online article abut UN costumes is out!
http://www.smartparenting.com.ph/home-living/homebase/places-to-buy-customize-or-rent-halloween-costumes/page/1
 
Baka malito kayo sa Quiapo map. I already sent corrections to my Editor. The places are numbered which is as follows:
1. is La Manilena
2. is Carriedo cor Palma Sts.
3. Maning's
4. Joan's (ilalim ng tulay)

Another topic I didn't include in my article is checking out Ukay-ukay. This is what I do (and will do again this year) when I need to look for clothes that can match the costume tapos accessorize at alter ko nalang ng konti. There are issues kasi with UKs, hindi appealing sa lahat.

My daughter's country this year will be Spain. I checked stores in Quiapo, nasa P400 yung medyo maganda but not totally pretty for me. I still find it plain. I highly recomend Maning's, (check URL given on my previous post) marami silang RTW UN gowns na stand out talaga ang bata and these you can't find in SM stores.

But for me, stick to DIY ako.

Hi Mommies!
Thanks for all the inputs..
I went to Quiapo to check out the stores but I was a bit disappointed with the fabric and the quality of the Korean costumes. I decided instead to have the costumes custom-made..
All the efforts paid off since my son and my niece were declared this year's Mr. & Ms. UN at their day care..

Thanks again...God bless...

This one I made with Ukay-Ukay clothes. The top is a long sleeved red printed velvet. I sewed raffles from buy2take1free clothes fr shopwise for P60.


The skirt is recycled from her italy costume last year which I put together from UK clothes. She grew taller this year so I just added length to the skirt.

Sis mukhang maganda kung dagdagan mo ng parang flower pot yung shorts or pants niya. Brown would be nice kung hindi na magagawa para lang may maganda yung effect. :)
