Yes, friends. Odds Costume, home of the wacky, beautiful and French, is closing its doors, another victim of this craptacular economic situation in which we find ourselves. Sad day! They will close their doors forever on July 1, 2009, but in the meantime… they are selling off their stock. Costume designers and stylist have the first shot at it – then the first two weeks in June, they will sell to the public. If you haven’t been to Odds, let me just say that they have some really beautiful pieces, and wonderful accessories, too. This is just so tragic. I feel like I’m gonna barf.
If you are in NY, run, don’t walk. And pick up something for me, will you? I’ll spend the next few months sniffing it and crying for the death of this great costume shop. This is a huge loss to the costume community, and I am genuinely very sad for their hardship and for the disappearance of this great resource.
