I received a call today from a western movie set/party ranch. The standard what type of shows etc conversation ensued. Well, nothing set in writing but since it is a western old frontier town, the owner said I would have to wear western wear including cowboy hat, vest and pants. He did mention thrift stores which was already on my mind:)

Anyone have this happen to them before an actual gig? He did mention everything was contingent on my abilities which goes without saying (not worried about that part).

I have all kinds of outfits just in case there is a special attire I need to wear for a show. I have been asked to dress as Harry Potter or some kind of wizard for a kid's birthday party and I have dressed up as a cowboy (boots, hat, and all) to perform at a ranch. The outfits aren't that expensive. The cowboy outfit is basically a tux with cowboy boots and a hat. The wizard outfit can be bought during Halloween (and usually a wizard performer is required during Halloween anyways) for $30 or less. I also did one show as Dracula. The whole costume cost $20 and then I added parts of my tux to it to make it look real.

I get most of my gigs because I can attire myself to fit into the parties theme or period. I have a variety of outfits that cover a wide range of themes and time periods. Since I'm married to a costumer coming up with a suitable outfit is a lot easier for me to do than your average performer. A few years ago when I was asked by a bookstore to put together a short "Harry Potter" style performance for their book release event instead of going to the local costume shop and having to buy a cheap wizard costume I was simply able to go to my closet and pull out one.I'm suprised that with you living in San Antone that you do not already posses "cowboy duds". I thought everyone in the great state of Texas was required to own a set.

Well Pardner not exactly. A lot of Texas growth has been from influx of outsiders, myself included. I do have an 1880's old west style outfit for my doc act does that count.

For a theme, I would do a River Boat gambler attire. Or how someone would look for a traveling theator troup of those days?
