NEW and UNIQUE
Following are a few highlighted items uniquely designed to solve
generally ignored performance problems. These listings represent new or
revised technology/engineering or unique customization. The following
prices are approximate. For current pricing, see the appropriate
Product Categories file.
Moldable "Shank" Pointe Slippers <S>
The following two styles incorporate longer lived moldable (hair dryer
heat shapeable) insoles which replace traditional shanks. Rather than
shaping on the feet (traditonal shank) the plastic insoles are heated
and manually pre-shaped to each arch. An
instruction booklet is included. Insoles are graded PL3, PL4, PL5 from
softest to greatest durability.
For pricing and other pointe slippers, see POINTE SLIPPERS.
2-8 1X,2X,3X,4X (approximately ABCD widths)
Wide platform box with moldable "shanks" in three weights.
2-8 1X,2X,3X (~ABC widths)
Traditional box with moldable "shanks" in three weights.
GTS does not recommend these styles for most younger students with
either growing feet or developing arches. Such ongoing changes in foot
structure should be allowed to naturally develop and easily reshape the
in-use slippers. The primary value of moldable insoles is the lasting
consistency of shape maintenance (not readily changing shape) which is
best used for feet with established arches. For further assistance,
Cap Firing Flintlocks <PW>
High quality wood and metal reproduction toys which fire custom single
shot plastic encased caps designed to fit into mating weapon anvil
pockets. This is a considerable improvement over the the previous
flat-cap design, but still does not guarantee 100% firing success. A
more reliable method is to manually draw back the hammer, compress the
trigger, then release the hammer (yielding greater hammer arc and
force). After every few shots, clean the cap pocket (to eliminate
if problems persist, request further information. Other weapon models

Prop Chandeliers <WL>
Non-electric acrylic strung-bead "chandeliers" available in a
variety of formal and period styles and sizes. Some include candle
holders and any may be searately internally lighted. If desired, the
bead-strings are available per spool or as curtains for expanded motif
or custom chandelier design. The several bead-string designs are
available in clear, with some also in iridescent, silver, gold, and
colors. Most units collapse flat for easy handling and storage.
Economical Stage Velour
one of six tans
Economical stage curtains have long been fabricated using Nassau,
Atlas, commando, or other less luxurious fabrics. There now is a
similarly priced medium weight velour which should be considered.
Available in 23 colors, it has a pleasant nap, is inherently fire
retardant (due to fiber content), and is significantly more opaque than
the above listed fabrics.
An example of June 2011 pricing: 6' wide x 12'4" leg @ 294.00;
22' x 13½' traveler panel @ 846.00; 45' x 4½' valence @

fingered gloves, and hood (open or closed face) in 24 each Lycra or

of design features (e.g., stirrups rather than feet) or color
combinations is possible. Also, separate costume pieces: e.g., gloves
(any length), hood (open or closed), leotard with hood, or
multi-colored or 1-leg tights.
Ideal for large puppet presentations. Puppeteers in black
disappear under ultraviolet (blacklight) in blackout, or can blend into

Unique styling possibilities. Side by side, top & bottom,

Custom Sequins <TS>
Over 125 sequin colors/finishes, as well as, up to 63 fabric backing
finishes are available. With multi-row trims it is possible to custom
design each row to be a different finish and select the fabric backing.
This service once was available only at minimum 144 to 288 yard runs,
later in 2 bolt minimums, and now usually in 1 bolt minimums. Although
there is a setup charge, if different colors of adjacent rows are
desired, a single piece of custom trim is, generally, not only more
rapidly attached (with fewer broken needles) but also less expensive
than several separate colored bolts. Request quotes, allowing time
(generally 2 - 3 weeks) for manufacture.
No sets required with adhesive backed rhinestones, pearls (PH),
and other shapes quickly attached to many fabrics and other materials
using the Hotfix Wand. Anyone regularly gluing sets should seriously
consider this tool now that the price has radically dropped.
HOTFIX APPLICATOR WAND
heats Hotfix stones adhesive for quick, neat, easy
attachment, includes 7 stone sized tips. 45.00

Inexpensive, Easy Snowfall <X>
For CONFETTI & SNOWFALL EFFECTS:
A compact (18½" high x 11½" diameter) 110 volt scatter
unit which permits easy rigging and quiet, simple implementation of
confetti and snowfall stage effects. With a loaded weight of about 10
pounds and a hopper capacity of about 3 pounds of paper confetti, the
unit projects about a 20' diameter moderate density spread for 1 to 2
minutes without the need for space consuming troughs or the weight and
"violence" of blowers. Other
synthetic "snow" may be used and other snow effects (including
disappearing) are available.
For a lateral effect drape the upstage and downstage sides of
the hopper with "skirts" long enough to deflect the confetti laterally.
(NOTE: Do not enclose the scatter canister which would compress the
confetti in the canister and jam the dispersion blades.)
For larger stages space multiple units for area coverage and
hang as high as possible to achieve a gentle vertical snowfall.
For extended effects modify the hopper by building a "funnel"
extension insert to contain additional confetti.
NOTE: When using a stage circuit for power, preset it for
"switched" (on/off, nondimming) or dimming without warmup (no
continuous 5-15 volts intended to maintain warm lamp filaments) to
avoid overheating the motor.
