    Trans Men, as the hero of this play, bring it in all blue that shows off your nobility and confidence. Shoes not included. 




    You are the star of the show with a stage presence so dazzling that nothing compares, aside from your beauty, of course. But even the star has to do some prep before they’re ready for the stage.  

    Dressing room, backstage beauty, are you ready for your close up? Robe is mandatory for your 10s.  

    When performing to the judges don’t forget that first and foremost you are selling face. 



    STOMP is a percussion group originating in Brighton, using the body and ordinary objects to create physical theatre. This smash hit production blurred the lines between dance, percussion and theatre.  

    Make sure you bring it in a look inspired by STOMP and elevate your performance with a mandatory prop: think everyday objects.

    Bring it in a creative, fashionable effect that pays homage to the iconic mean girls - the plastics.

She was the first black woman to receive an Oscar in a non-acting category and the youngest recipient of a songwriter Oscar. Honouring the late actress and singer-songwriter, bring it in 80s workout wear that flaunts your impressive physique.

    The 60s was a decade of social revolution, known for widespread political activism concerning civil rights, sexuality, women's rights and questioning traditional modes of authority. The theatre production Hair encapsulated the counterculture of the sixties, breaking boundaries by being the first major show on Broadway to use a racially integrated cast and featuring full frontal nudity.

    Bring it to the floor in a look that draws inspiration from the free love movement aesthetic of the 60s and signifies sexual liberation for you. Make sure you incorporate flowers into your effect.
