The Costume Shoppe

Plushy Fanatic

Well-made period costumes, including Marie Antoinette bustle dresses and Napoleonic empire gowns, along with scores of Disney characters, pack The Costume Shoppe warehouse—to the point where half the merchandise is consigned to racks 15 feet above your head. The back wall is lined with shoes, from gangster-era wing tips to ruby slippers. The store has a massive supply of “walkabouts” (furry one-pieces with giant heads); among the picks are (slightly creepy) takes on Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Mother Goose, and more than a dozen bunnies. Two-day rentals start at $65.
