In spite of the name, mirror costumes aren’t made of real mirror, although they have the same reflectivity. Pieces used for production of shiny outfits and glitter accessories are made of high quality acrylic mirror. Each tile is carefully cut with a laser and has rounded edges to guarantee safe usage with no scratches. Top quality acrylic mirror is 10 times stronger than glass, shatter, UV and weather resistant and doesn’t age like real mirror. All this make it ideal for use of design projects like those that we work on everyday at ETERESHOP.
Mirror Man Costumes
Costumes of a Mirror Man, Mirror Lady and a Mirror Family are extremely popular among entertainers performing as living statues while meeting guests, posing for photos or attracting attention during presentations, weddings, opening ceremonies, parades and other events.
As the list of occasions they are used at isn’t short, conditions for shows can be numerous as well: sunlight or even fire if you perform outside, lasers, LED panels and soffits in concert halls or night clubs, some usual artificial light sources in malls.
ETERESHOP team creates Mirror Man costumes since 2012 and we’ve refined our technology of production to the best quality. Mirror tiles are attached to breathable fabric and costumes have detachable lining that can be washed.

Light Sources and Their Impact on Disco Ball Reflection of Mirror Costumes
Mirror wear will shine or gleam in any light conditions except for complete darkness. But to achieve the best effect it is advisable to choose bright and/ or colorful lighting solutions such as lasers, LED panels or LED stripes, soffits, fire or, simply, sunlight. There is no universal lighting setup: depending on the size and layout of the venue, the funds available and the preferences of the owner, the tools can vary widely. Let’s have a look at the most common lighting conditions you’ll be using your mirror clothing in and their influence on the produced effect.
Light sources at night clubs, restaurants or theatres are usually more than enough for an artist to create an unforgettable wow-effect with a mirror outfit, be it a costume of a mirror man, flexible mirror leotard or just a 3D animal mask. Small fancy restaurants may have no strobes in their arsenal, but if there is even a small stage for musicians, it surely must be able to create a spotlight effect.
If you are not sure what kind of lighting conditions you’ll be performing in, you can always grab a portable source of light with you (see the next point).
Lasers and LED lights:
That’s what will definitely live up your show if the scene is too dark, the day is rainy, you need to add corporate colors to your show or just some ‘juiciness’ to your performance. If the light source is multi-color your disco ball effect will have a wide range of colors to light up an event.
Grab a LED panel, LED light fans, an LED mask, veils or even light up wings with you and be sure to own the night.
It seems so obvious, isn’t it? Bright sun beams are like natural spotlights for a performer dressed in mirrored clothes.
Stage costumes by ETERESHOP are made of acrylic mirror tiles that are UV resistant, so shine like a crazy diamond and be sure about the quality of your costume.
