    NEW Foods CM Costumes!

    Most of the Main Street food/bev locations have received new costumes, starting today. Included in this change are Blue Ribbon Bakery, Coke Corner, Plaza Inn, Main Street Fruit Cart, Gibson Girl Ice Cream, and the Little Red Wagon.

    I don't like them nearly as much. They are all genericize-- basic stripes in slightly varied colors. The ladies' skirts are also shorter, as a safety improvement. They know reach mid-calf instead of the ankle.

    But any CM who's ever worked an early shift at Carnation Cafe feels me when I say that those skirts were real thick and warm!

    The Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor will lose it's signature teal "dentist" green outfit and opt for the more generic stripe pattern as well.

    Current CMs would have seen costuming CMs wearing the new costumes in costuming today.

    Check it out, and please offer your opinions on the new Main Street Foods look!

    Scandalous! We can't have women walking around with bare ankles! Think of the children! After all, this is the turn of the century!

    I can't make a decision until I see a picture, but I would say I like the individually themed costumes better.

    The vests are ugly and I hate the fact that the red wagon has the same costume as the Plaza Inn. The old red wagon costume was much better.

    I really am not a fan of the new costumes. But they're really pushing "safety" in foods right now. THey've given all the foods CMs company issued shoes. Now I guess they're looking to shorten skirt lengths so that tripping is less likely.

    Re: NEW Foods CM Costumes!

    I'm bad with colors, but basically get used to teal and gold, as the color scheme. Other things to note, unless someone can correct me, I believe this is the first time that I've seen that leads are explicitly given a different uniform. (Small variations, like like leads females wear pants instead of the dress etc.)

    Re: NEW Foods CM Costumes!

    At BB for a while, the leads had a white/black costumes and the hosts have the ones they have. But costuming will no longer check out the black/white leads costumes, so any leads taht never turned them in can still wear them, but if they turn them all in, they can't check any more out.

    And what's most horrifying about this is that they're not making the ladies on Main Street wear knee-high socks. So they actually DO have their ankles showing.

    In keeping with show, I think it's scandalous.

    Yea, I always laugh at my lead when I see him now in the costume, haha.

    The ladies at the Plaza Inn were told to get flesh color stockings, though not many of them wear them.

    Another of the new costumes I don't like at all are the fruit cart, the old ones looked and fit in with mainstreet so much better.
