Costumes are arriving and are ready to be rhinestoned! Our picture day is January 9, so all costumes must be fully rhinestoned before that! (Jan 9 is also our showcase, in the event this doesn’t happen, picture day WILL still happen)

Rhinestone Process

  • It is you (or your dancers) responsibility to rhinestone the costume. You can purchase glue & tools conveniently at Platinum.
  • WATCH THIS VIDEO and only use the glue for sale at Platinum (or exact kind). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMHIiF4qAZA
  • After you receive your costume, visit the PDW Rhinestone Dropbox to view final photos of costumes. (Updated as samples are done)
  • Use the photos to copy the exact pattern onto your costume. Each costume has stones separated/counted so follow the photos & patterns carefully, as we will not have extra stones if you run out. You can use the “comments” below to ask specific questions or you can view a sample of the costume at the studio.
  • Please be sure you aren’t using too little, or too much glue. You don’t want to see the glue seeping out, but you want to use enough to ensure they stay on.
  • Rhinestone SPACING is important — make sure you are following the photos exact. If you have a question, please stop by and see the costumes IN PERSON before finishing.

Need Help?

Our teachers can rhinestone your costume for you for $30 a costume- pay via Venmo. Please email sydney@platinumdance.com ASAP if you plan on that, even if you don’t have your costumes yet! With the tight deadline, if we don’t hear from you in the next week, we will assume you are rhinestoning the costumes yourself. If you want them rhinestoned for you, we will arrange a different pickup day.

Petites

Your costumes are ready to be picked up! We will have a curbside pickup TOMORROW (Wednesday) from 2-3pm. If you cannot make it, email Sydney to find a time to pick them up. It is super important you get these ASAP so you can start rhinestoning. If you want a teacher to rhinestone, make sure you let Sydney know before you pickup, so we can get it rhinestoned prior to handing out!
