Getting Started

We’re With You Every Step


Thank you for your interest in our company. We take your passion seriously because we’ve stood in your shoes. Many members of our team once twirled, marched, danced, choreographed, composed and played in the band.

We know it’s essential to get every costume just right. That’s why we produce each one right here in the USA with the highest level of quality.

Browsing through our website is easy. Simply click on a costume to see the color options, related male and female costumes and place your order.

To customize with a color or design change, include the CCD number of the costume you want and the color you want it in. You change the pants style, skirt, sleeves or other detail by including those details when setting up your order. We will return a drawing of the costume reflecting your color and design revisions.

Custom designs are created from the information you provide when setting up your order. Once a designer has received every piece of information from you, they will prepare a custom design and send a drawing of the costume with design and color details.

We love it when you share our designs in the world but keep in mind the drawings sent to you by Creative Costuming & Designs, Inc. (CCD) are copyrighted. They are the property of CCD and intended to be used by CCD exclusively.
