How to Rent a Costume

Ready to rent a costume for your next event? We're here to help! Here's what you need to do to get all dolled up for your next party, production, or holiday!

 

1. FIND YOUR COSTUME

Use the categories to the left or the search bar in the top right to search through our inventory of ready-to-go costumes.

Can't find what you're looking for or have something a little custom in mind? Our costume designers are experts at crafting your perfect costume! Give us a call or come on down and let us put you in something you'll love!

 

2. TRY IT ON

That's right, you need to try it on! Archive Costumes is full of high quality pieces that are tailored to fit a specific actor or role. Many of our items are also vintage garments, which means their sizes can vary from traditional sizes as we know today. For both of those reasons, and the most important reason of making sure you look your very best for your event, we want you to come and try the costume on! One of our Archive experts will be on hand to assist you personally with your fitting and make sure that every detail is perfect.

 

3. FILL OUT THE PAPERWORK

Once you're fitted and ready to go, one of our Archive experts will walk you through our rental policies and have you fill out some basic paperwork for the rental. Don't worry, it's easy stuff - think name, address, and phone number. This is where you'll pay your security deposit for the costume, securing your rental for your desired date!

4. PICK UP YOUR COSTUME

We'll be happy to see you again when you come to pick up your costume rental between 4 - 6 PM (It's all on your paperwork, don't worry.) Our staff will be waiting with your items and after your payment for the rental is processed and confirmed, you'll be on your way to the ball! (Or whatever event you may be attending.)

 

5. BE THE BEST DRESSED PERSON IN THE ROOM!

Enjoy your event!! Our customers are always the best dressed in the room, the winners of their costume contests, and the ones having the best time. We can't wait to hear all about your event when you bring your costume back between 10 AM - 12 PM on your return date! 

Be sure to take plenty of pictures and let us know how things went on our Facebook page! You can also find us on Instagram @archivecostumes and we'd love to see your photos - tag them as #archivecostumes and you may be featured!
