General Info
Our theatrical costumes are all high quality and not just package outfits put on hangers and passed off as theatrical. We have costumes that have appeared in movies such as Gangs of New York, Hidalgo, Year One, Alexander and The Last Samurai. Some of our costumes have even appeared on TV shows like the Drew Carey show and Blue Bloods. A few of our costumes have even appeared on such stages as The Royal Opera House in England and the New York City Opera. We have won costume awards with PAA of Ocean County for Cabaret, and Amadeus and the witches costume used at Jackson High's production of The Wizard of OZ. We are one of the few costume shops where you can rent one piece or one hundred pieces. Our prices are very competitive at $45.00 for a complete costume for the entire play from tek week to closing night. The same quality costumes we use at Surflight and Algonquin Theaters are used at middle and high school productions. If you have a tight budget but still want your actors to look their best please, give us a call and we will send pictures of costumes for your productions.

I am very disappointed with this shop. I was excited to check it out for about a year. I walked in with high hopes to find the perfect item to add to my costume. Since I did not know what I wanted I gazed around looking at their items. I was asked 3 times what I was looking for, I responded nicely "I'm just looking around". My friend and I went to the back where we saw the costumes being hung up, complimenting a pair of shoes when the woman who worked there, who i assume was the owner, was very nasty. She demanded that we had to go back to the front and when we apologized she rudely said "that's what the sign is there for". We didn't see a sign when we walked back there. She made me feel like I was a criminal and not welcome there. We looked where she said there was a sign, it was off to the side on a stand that had a belt over it. It was also around torso height, so with it being covered and at a short height we missed it by accident. She could have handled the situation differently, telling us about her policy. We left immediately after, very upset.

Excellent service and very authentic costumes. The costumes we rented for our theater production were very reasonably priced and the quality was exceptional.
