Our Story

Welcome to Southwest Costume Rentals: Creating community through the love of costumes.

A note from our owner, Paula Rogers:

Since 1989, I have immersed myself in this vibrant business designing for theater, film, television as well as commercial styling. My collection and passion for costumes started at the age of five when I started theater. This lifelong journey has accumulated a large enough collection to share with the industry. At Southwest Costume Rentals we are here to be a regional asset for all the shows in the greater Southwest. We are committed to training and supporting individuals who share our enthusiasm, for the craft of costuming and ensuring the community continues to grow.

Bringing Over 20 Years of Experience in the film industry

Paula Rogers

I love the movie business but couldn’t imagine as this little girl I could ever be a part of it. But still, I kept that curiosity going and followed my gut feeling. I guess I was practicing my craft without even realizing what I was doing-starting with making costumes for my cats and chickens! I kept my eyes on the goal and took a long and winding road but never stopped learning and growing. Eventually I got to work with some of my favorite talent and I finally feel like I am a small part of movie making. What I do for a living now is what we used to play at growing up. It’s wild to look back 50 years and realize that. 

 
When I am not in the costume house, I am busy being a mom and working on my family’s ranch in Arizona.
