Home of the Cute Bunnies! And School Plays Also

Hop on in to Beauty and the Beast Costumes to reserve an Easter Bunny before they all run away hiding eggs in other yards. Does the Church wardrobe department look a little empty?  We can help out with Jesus Robes, Roman Soldiers, and Biblical robes for sale or rent.

While most people are thinking about a new spring wardrobe and family time, we’re also hard at work on School plays!  Most won’t notice that we are currently adding photos for “King and I”.  This was a major addition to our Theatrical repertoire last year.  This year’s addition will be “Mary Poppins”.  It takes a while to get all the costumes photographed, the images cleaned up and posted.  Now that we have the bulk of our Retail items on the website, we’re working on the rentals.  If you need something for a play, please give us a call.  We might have it!

Happy Birthday Dr. Suess!

The most adorable twins in the world on their way to school for Dr. Suess’s Birthday in their costumes from Beauty & the Beast.  We are frequently asked if we have costumes for the event and the answer is usually “No, we don’t have Thing 1 and Thing 2 or red and white hats.”   But when your mom is wonderfully creative, things work out!  A pink princess gown from the clearance rack becomes Cindy Lou Who with a little make up, a simple headband with craft stems, and an ornament made of card stock for a prop.  A tiger costume with make up, extra ears and tail, plus added card stock apples is purr-fect for Ten Apples on Top.   It’s all about thinking outside the box.

Used Bunny Sale!


The Easter Bunny Costumes around here have been multiplying like BUNNIES!  It’s time to find happy homes for some of our more mature rabbits.  These are the Dark Pink bunnies preferred by photographers and groups with outdoor events as their darker colored ears and tummies have more contrast in photos and the suits are less thick for more comfort when wearing.  

At Beauty and the Beast Costumes, we are offering these retired rentals heads and matching jumpsuits for sale at just $75 each.  That’s less than a Rental and a Half!  Would you like some extra large feet?  To round out this offer, we are providing a pair of brand new, never worn shoe covers for $25.  That’s less than half the suggested retail price!  Hop on in for the best selection.

Cute Bunny needs a new home.

Yes! We Rent Easter Bunny Costumes

Wow!  Already getting requests for Easter Bunny Information.  Full details can be found on our Bunny page  – CLICK HERE.  

Other Easter related costumes and accessories can be found by selecting the Easter, Biblical, or World History categories to the right or by typing inquiries into the Search Bar on the top right of this page.  Example:  Type “Roman” to find all kinds of rental or retail costumes, armor, weapons and accessories.

Sadly, our long term friendly competitor seems to have closed and their customers are searching for a new provider.  It is always a sad day when a small business closes.  We wish our friends well and great prosperity in their future ventures.

Obviously, those who have been loyal customers of that establishment preferred their products and services to those that we provide.  Beauty and the Beast Costumes will be more than happy to help those displaced customers in any way that we can with a different but more extensive inventory of quality products and a different set of services.

Cleaning out the Store Room

We’re doing Spring Cleaning in the Winter.  Our stock room is a disaster and we’re pulling out stuff we didn’t even know we had.  All these items are getting dusted off, marked down and put out on the floor for bargain hunters, dress up boxes, school costume closets or whatever.

Keep checking back to see what’s being marked down next.  

HINT:  Click the “Shop” button above, and it will always show you the items most recently added to the site.

While I’m at it, I’m making sure all the wigs are listed as I consolidate back stock boxes. Most of these are perennial favorites, they just didn’t get listed on the website earlier.  Others are “Why is this still here?” items that will also be discounted.

The Makeup is HERE!

Yes folks, we finally got another Mehron Makeup shipment!  Our stocks are back in good shape for the upcoming Convention, School Play and LARP seasons.  We know that many people have been disappointed in our dwindling supplies after Halloween and we appreciate your patience.  With the closing of another major source of theatrical makeup in our area, we had an unexpected surge in sales.  Now that we have moved into the new year, we can look forward to keeping our stocks replenished to better serve our more professional customers.

Happy New Year!

Christmas and Hanukkah are now over and everyone is looking forward to a Happy New Year!  Here at Beauty and the Beast Costumes, we’ll be taking back all the rental costumes, doing laundry, washing and rolling Santa Hair, steaming the wrinkles out of his cleaned costumes and getting everything ready for storage.

We’ll be getting the Masquerade masks back out for any New Year’s Masquerade balls and looking forward to Mardi Gras and School plays.

Merry Christmas!

As always, Santa has been very good to us here at Beauty and the Beast Costumes.  We will be closed Christmas day, Monday December 25th.  However, we will be here Tuesday the 26th to take back all those Christmas rental costumes and start packing it all away. 

This year, we plan on trying something different.  We want to make Christmas items more accessible throughout the year.  Most of the packaged costumes will be displayed on the back shelves.  We want to move the back stock Halloween masks and clean the clutter out our first store room to arrange the Christmas items closer to the main showroom floor.  Hopefully, these simple changes will make it easier for customers who are interested in “Christmas in July” promotional items and early holiday parades.  Those who participate in the Hamilton Place ‘Santa Claus’s Arrival’ parade on the first Saturday of November as well as those who want Santa and elf costumes for Spirit Week or Halloween will no longer be turned away because those items are packed in the attic during October.
