Things We Love: Royal Factory’s old dance costumes

Posted by Jackie Mantey | October 23, 2012 09:33 AM

I know you be costume shopping, girl! Add the Royal Factory in the Short North to your list of shops to hit up for outfits. The fashion boutique’s owner Felicia Jimenez acquired a huge stock of former dance costumes from a studio. If you’ve ever been a dancer, you know how extravagant, weird and detailed costumes can get; this selection is no exception. Among shoppers’ options are sequined body suits, fringed jump suits (see: 1980s baton twirlers), tutus, crinoline, blinged out leg warmers, etc. Check it out. Tap shoes not required.
