It's officially here: competition season! High school dance teams have kicked off their competitions, putting in hours of sweaty, tough practices to make their routines as flawless as possible. With many dancers among our Line Up team, we know that all those hours - which lead to a only a few short minutes on the floor - are worth it for that feeling of pride and accomplishment after a performance!

This time of year is our favorite because after weeks of planning and production work we finally get to see all of your fabulous custom costumes come to life! It's amazing how much choreography and those finishing touches like accessories, rhinestones, and makeup can completely transform a design!

Team Spotlight: Baltimore Ravens Playmakers & Alumni

Posted by Pam on Nov 12, 2015

Last week, we gave you the "behind the design" story for the Baltimore Ravens Cheerleaders' new uniforms. But did you know that there are even more spectacular groups within this organization? We also outfitted the Raven's Playmakers and Pro Bowl alumni this year! What did they go with? Here's a peek:


The Baltimore Ravens have a promotional team known as The Playmakers, who make appearances throughout Baltimore and surrounding areas and raffle off tickets to M&T Bank Stadium. The team is also present at all home games.

We were thrilled to work with Event & Game Entertainment manager, Ilsa, to design a new uniform for the Playmakers! Together, our design team and Ilsa landed on a tank and skirt, a look intended to provide more modest coverage as they make appearances in the community. Sticking with their team colors of purple and black, the top and skirt also coordinates well with their existing custom warm-up jacket- we love the overall look!
