tumes herself for “Lombardi” and “Buyer and Seller,”
as well as for the Riverside Theatricals’ production of
“Leo: A Ghost Story.”
When someone else is the designer, Hillbery works
with him or her on fittings, taking notes and helping to

of the costumes come from stock and some are rentals.
“We do rent a lot of costumes,” she said. “It’s up to the
designer. I pull the costumes they want and shop and
purchase other pieces. There’s a lot of shopping. If some-
thing can’t be purchased or found, we will build it.”
Hillbery said that rentals for theatrical purposes can
be altered, but not permanently. That means no cutting
and careful pinning. Many rental houses require that
the alternations be reversed before the garments are
For “Leo,” a children’s show that will be presented in
