Tin Man Costumes


“If only I had a heart…”
In the novels by L. Frank Baum, the origins of the Tin Man character are quite gruesome. Originally an ordinary man by the name of Nick Chopper, the Tin Woodman used to make his living chopping down trees in the forests of Oz. The Wicked Witch of the East enchanted his axe to prevent him from marrying the girl that he loved. The enchanted axe chopped off his limbs, one by one. Each time he lost a limb, Nick Chopper replaced it with a prosthetic limb made of tin. Finally, nothing was left of him but tin. However, the tinsmith who helped him, neglected to replace his heart. Once Nick Chopper was made entirely of tin, he was no longer able to love the girl he had fallen for.
In The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Dorothy befriends the Tin Woodman and he follows her to the Emerald to get a heart from The Wizard of Oz. They are joined on their adventure by the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion. The Tin Woodman states unequivocally that he has neither heart nor brain, but cares nothing for the loss of his brain. His desire for a heart notably contrasts with the Scarecrow’s desire for brains, reflecting a common debate between the relative importance of the mind and the emotions. As they continue in their quest, they discover the Wizard to be a “humbug” and can only provide a placebo heart made of velvet and filled with sawdust. However, this is enough to please the Tin Woodman, who, with or without a heart, was all along the most tender and emotional of Dorothy’s companions; just as the Scarecrow was the wisest and the Cowardly Lion the bravest.
The huge popularity of the books and their subsequent adaptations has meant the Tin Man is widely recognised, and therefore perfect for character parties, TV/ Movie parties, film parties, and more! Want to go as a group? Why not get together with three friends and wear The TinmanThe ScarecrowThe Cowardly Lion and Dorothy? Accessorize the Tin Man Costume with a Heart Clock and Axe.

Ringmaster Costumes


Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages…

The ringmaster is the most visible performer in the modern circus, and one of the most important circus members, since he stage-manages the performance, introduces the various acts, and guides the audience through the entertainment experience. In smaller circuses, the ringmaster is often the owner and artistic director of the circus. Many modern-day ringmasters become an integral part of the performance, singing and dancing along with the other entertainers.

Ring Master Three Ring Hottie Deluxe Womens Costume

In the days before modern lighting equipment, it was the ringmaster’s job to literally “direct” the attention of the audience to the appropriate sections of the performance area, even as the previous act was being torn down or the next act was being set up in another area. Most performances were mute by nature, accompanied by resounding brass music. Therefore, the ringmaster’s big, booming voice was important as it cut through the clutter and excitement to announce the act. It is the ringmaster’s job to create a sense of wonder through hyberpole, with declarations of the “biggest”, “most dangerous”, “amazing”, “spectacular” when commenting on the performance.

Ring Master Deluxe Mens Costume
A ringmaster is traditionally attired in a bright, gaudy topcoat and tails — often red with gold trim — with a tall top hat. The outfit is designed to look like an 18th century gentleman’s riding habit, and often includes a whip, a relic of when the ringmaster directed the performance, not as announcer and host but as director of the many equestrian acts, a specialist stage-manager.

A common design for a Jim Henson Muppet is a character with a very wide mouth and large protruding eyes. They are distinguished from ventriloquist dummies, which are typically animated only in the head and face, in that their arms or other features are also mobile and expressive. They are also presented as being independent of the puppeteer, who is usual not visible – hidden behind a set or outside of the camera frame. Using the camera frame as the ‘stage’ was an innovation of the Muppets. Famous Muppets from ‘The Muppet Show’ include Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Beaker.
