Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman Costumes to hire from Express Yourself Costume Hire of Southampton. This amazing unique shop – one of the largest outside of London are specialists in beautiful Greatest Showman and other film costumes. 
 
Inspired by the imagination of P. T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells the story of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide show business sensation. In the film Hugh Jackman plays P.T. Barnum, an ambitious showman and entrepreneur. 
 
Barnum loses his job as a clerk at a shipping company after the company goes bankrupt. Taking a risky bet, he takes out a large loan from a bank, deceiving the bank into accepting his former employer's lost ships as collateral. He uses this loan to buy Barnum's American Museum in downtown Manhattan, an attraction showcasing various wax models. Initially, sales are slow; on the suggestion of his children to showcase something "alive", Barnum searches for "freaks" to serve as performers for his museum ("Come Alive"). This attracts a large audience despite protests and poor reviews, prompting Barnum to rename his venture "Barnum's Circus." 
 
The costume comes with all the accessories and really looks and feels he part.
