Les Miserables

I am working in wardrobe for Les Miserables this week. The shop will not be available for appointments. All makeup orders will be in on Monday of next week. I can still answer messages and emails throughout the week. I may not be able to get back to you immediately, as I am backstage. But I will respond.

Happy All Saints!


Many know this time of the year as All Saints or Day of the Dead. It is never been more true for Fig Leaf that this is a time for renewal. We have made the very difficult decision of closing our physical storefront.

I will be “gently” open the next few weeks in November, so please don’t hesitate to email, FB message, or call if you need anything. we are not out of business. we are taking the next month to transition out of our building, and taking December to rebuild the website into an online store. There will still be local pick up for theatrical supplies, and makeup. we will be able to offer more of a variety in our supplies. we just won’t be doing rentals any longer.

Thanks so much for all of your support, and for sticking with us through our transition.

We will see you on the other side!

Sincerely, Rita Burkholder

P.S. One of my favorite Saints is Saint Rita of Cascia. In a nutshell she took a dead branch, and made it grow into a living thing. It seems to be a recurring theme in my life to make something from nothing. It’s a great story and worth looking into, if you need inspiration. If you want to know more about this awesome art below. It is by artists Theophilia on



OCTOBER 17th – 28th, we are selling ALL of our rental costumes!!! We had tomake the   decision of whether or not to keep our retail storefront for another year. The numbers and a few ither factors showed it is time to close it. 

We will still be in business, but are moving our costune services and theatrical supplies online. The world is changing and we have to adapt. So, if youcan’t  beat em’ (Amazon) join em’, right? We win’t be joining Amazin anytime soon, we will stick to our own website, and offer unique handmade costumes on Etsy.

   The message today though, we are selling ALL of our costumes! We were super busy the last two days, from open to well past close. So be sure to get there sooner than later!

   We have a ton of great stuff from costumes, hats, accessories, shoes, and more! Egyptians, gorillas, knights, maidens, colonial, victorian, flappers, princesses, India Princesses, Cowboys, sailors, and more! Priced from $5-$300!

We will be in the store this week and next from

Monday through Friday 11-6

Saturdays 10-4

Come by and see us! We would love to see your smiling faces!


This is our last week for our final costume sale. Be sure to come in and bring your friends family and anyone else that you think might need a costume. ALL of our costumes are for sale this Halloween. Don’t miss it, things are going fast!!!

We are finally moving our business on line to our website. We are closing our local store front permanently. We have noticed a decrease in local sales as individuals, schools, and theaters shop online more, and more. So, we have to adapt to the market.

Thank you so very much to everyone that has come into our shop over the last four years. We’ve met so many wonderful people. We’ve seen hundreds of creative projects that we’ve been able to be a part of. We have have had the pleasure to assist and rent to dozens of theatrical productions locally and regionally. It has been a blast. Thank you so much for the fun and the opportunity to serve you as a community. We couldn’t have done it these last four years without you of course.

I want to be clear though we are not going out of business! We are simply closing our local storefront. Don’t worry, if you still need something you can contact us through our Facebook page which is Figleaf Costumes on Facebook or you can directly email us at Figleaf We are happy to provide anything that you need over the next few months. Our new website will be up in January all shiny and ready to fill your order for your productions parties events and more. We look forward to continuing to serve the community. The only difference is, we will be out in the inter-webs instead of West Huntsville.

Make sure though that if there is something you Love in the shop that you come in this week to grab it we are selling all of our costumes until the last one is gone through 28 October. That’s this Saturday. We have tons of Ben Nye makeup, wigs, hats prosthetics all kinds of accessories, and the small things that you need to finish out your costume. Come on into the shop and we will help make your costume idea come true! Have a great Halloween, and we will meet you on the other side!
