Bling on a Budget! (...And World Peace)

Is anybody familiar with any (ideally bargain-priced) pageant and/or drag resources in NE FL, particularly the greater Jacksonville area?

My previously-mentioned 17 year old niece has decided to continue with her pageant career (she has one this upcoming weekend, in fact!), but as a fresh-faced newcomer to the world of EXTREME COMPETITIVE SEQUINED GOWNS, she's been struggling to pull together a well-rounded pageant wardrobe within her time constraints and her family's budget.

She's set for this show, but does anybody know of any general pageant and/or drag queen resources in the 904, particularly for shoes*, jewelry, gowns/speedy and reliable tailoring (she's something like a size six in the bust and heightwise, a size four in the hips, and a size two in the waist), and OOAK or offbeat costuming needs?

Bonus points if they're available on the cheap!

*She actually wears a women's 9.5, so she's good on shoe size availability (though it never hurts to have all your bases covered in a good resource list, imo), but since she lives in a fairly conservative suburb, she's pretty limited to prom-season fare for embellished heels and rarely comes across shoes higher than 4", which is something she'd like to aim higher than, so to speak.

She could try Fifi's, which is a designer consignment shop with several locations in the Jacksonville area. They would have dresses, shoes and some accessories.
