Robyn has a sewing room right in the shop, and that is where all the magic happens.
“This is where all the little pieces that I’ve cut or I’ve had cut get put together, and costumes get made. There’s some finished costumes behind you that are waiting for fittings. I have all my threads in here and I have a TV in here so I can watch TV.” Robyn said.
Robyn says that she usually makes about 500 costumes per year. This year was a little less because of COVID, but in a normal year she makes 500 consumes at the store. She usually has somebody cut for her, and then she does all the sewing, but this year she did all the cutting and sewing herself since the costume demand was less then normal.
Customers can stop by and try on apparel or costume alterations in their famous fitting room that customers say is the miniature bedroom.
“I’ve got it all fixed up and really girly in there.” Robyn said

“We thought of it last year and we, my husband had it manufactured and we tested all kinds of materials to make sure the glue doesn’t stick to this board. And we have got integrated sleeve or tights or leggings slot in it so that you can rhinestone the hard to reach sleeves.” Robyn said.
So far, they have sold hundreds of Rhino-Stone Boards to customers from almost every state in the United States, and in Canada.
