Love this place-- crazy during Halloween though! They make their own costumes to rent out-- gotta see all the Star Wars characters! Pricey (sometimes) but you gotta expect that with quality!

The selection is very good and the customer service is friendly.
I did not get anything there because the prices for rental were high. But other than that, they are not bad.

I walked into the store looking for a costume piece that I saw on their website. The one guy behind the counter was busy with other customers, so he told me to look at the costumes and wait. After about 10 minutes of boredom, and playing with costume accessories, he couldn't help me find the piece that was on the website. On top of that, he told me the inventory and the website probably do not match up. I went online and called the store with the code, they couldn't tell me if they had it or not. System is not well organized, and the pieces they had were either cheesy or overpriced, and sometimes both.

The guy was nice, but they need to get more people working there.

I walked in to some tacky girl jumping up and down in the window to terrible music.
They do not welcome you with drinks, etc as the previous review stated. In fact, I walked in from the pouring rain and was told to leave my coffee outside.. even though it had a lid.
If you are carry a purse, they make you check it at the counter! .. ridiculous! As if I want someone else with my purse.
Do yourself a favor and GO TO the Garment District in Cambridge... Great deals, original stuff for costumes, etc.

Went to this place this past Halloween. The place was very busy as you can expect for Halloween, but they still had a great selection. I was able to try the costume on at the store. The only bad part was that it took so long to get service because of all the people in the store.

i was in boston costume today and not only did they have a wide variety of costumes, they had everything in fact, but also the folks there were serving cookies and muffins to everyone walking in the door. its a bit expensive though, so be willing to pay a lot for the costume.
