Why are Tabi's Characters Costumes so special? Click on the zoom of the blue ascot. The quality of the ascot is better than the quality of many non-costume ascots. Tabi's uses richly colored high quality weighted material in her costumes. The materials drape with a fluidity found in high-end theatrical costumes, unlike lesser quality costumes made of inferior materials such as acetate and low-end nylons which cannot hold their form under the weight of the costume. Poor draping results in the appearance of oddly shaped shadows across the wearers body once the costume is under performance lighting.
In addition to using the appropriate fabrics, the details on Tabi's Characters Costumes are exceptional. No doubt you've seen low-end costumes that have details screen-printed on the fabric. For example, "jewels" that are merely painted around the neckline of a princess gown. A step up from that would be flat plastic "jewels" that are glued down to the fabric. Continuing up the quality spectrum several more upgrades, are Tabi's costume embellishments at the top of the list - 3D glass jewels hand-mounted in metal holders and individually set into the costume.
