Cart Disabled – NO Shipping

Beauty and the Beast Costumes is the premier full-service, year-round costume shop for Chattanooga and the surrounding Tri-State area.   Our local shoppers keep us on our toes for everything Halloween, Christmas, Easter, and School Play related rentals and sales.  Basically, if school is in session, we are busy, Busy, and BUSY.  We keep our prices super low by leaving the mail-order market to the hundreds of chain stores and E-commerce companies.

Thank you SO MUCH for your interest and feel free to drop by when you’re in the neighborhood.  We would love to see you!

Lots of Changes going on!

Thank you for your steadfast support of Beauty and the Beast.  I’m not sure what happened, but I will lovingly joke that the super heavy traffic during Halloween overwhelmed this site.  It is back up and running, as well as it ever did and I will try to get it all updated ASAP.  Hang in there.

We have sold out of a large number of Clearance styles that need to be deleted.   Since our main supplier has gone through a great many changes over the last year, we are running extremely low on Marvel, Star Wars, and Harry Potter licensed costumes as well as our favorite fashions from the North Pole.   Fear Not!  Necessity is the mother of invention, and I am one tough little mother.  I have reestablished relationships with Morris Costumes in order to bring in NEW styles of Halco brand Santa suits, vests, hats; and re-stock the superior quality Lacy Wig brand Santa Claus wigs and beards.

Scarecrow Fangs are Back in Stock!

Cosplayers and LARPers Rejoice!  After a sad year of being out of stock, the world’s best, most natural looking, reusable fangs are BACK!!!  To celebrate, Beauty and the Beast has LOWERED the price on the most popular Classic Deluxe and Small Sexy styles to just $19 a pair!  

PLUS!  This year we DO have Retractable fangs.  We have been reluctant to buy retraceable sets from other suppliers because they just didn’t live up to the quality that our customers demand.  Now – get the Quality workmanship you expect from Scarecrow!  These are a little tricky to customize, so BE SURE TO READ the directions and watch the videos to get it right.

More STUFF!

Anyone who visits this week will have to navigate around all the boxes of wonderful new things.    As of this writing, everything has been priced and we are working as fast as possible to put it all away.  Many of the favorite costumes that where sold out before Halloween last year are now back in stock.  Many more new styles have arrived.  We also have lots of fun new toy weapons, hats, and accessories.

‘Beastie’ even came in and put out all the new Trick R Treat masks.  We should be getting more masks in time for Halloween, but we DO have Michael Myers out again!  Two deluxe versions are now in stock with the  Economy style in both adult and child sizes from Fun World.

The Spice is Flowing!

The new Halloween 2022 merch is coming in and we are processing it as fast as we can.  Beauty and the Beast is happy to announce that thanks to the merger of Rubies with Forum Novelties and Charades, we can now offer a wider range of 1X to 3X adult sized costumes.   The ones that we have in stock have been added to this website.  Keep checking back for quick peek pics of all kinds of new items.

New Wigs

New Dragon and Dinosaur Masks

New Fantasy Headpieces

New Wings – Sorry!  The black feathered wings are already SOLD OUT!

New Scary Masks

New Styles for Plus sized Women

New Masquerade Masks

For now, we’ve been adding the long awaited “On Stage” photos for several of the school plays that rented costumes from Beauty and the Beast, Chattanooga in the last few years.  We had a lot more, but some may have been sucked up into a black hole, or more likely didn’t all get transferred from one computer / camera / phone to the next.  *GASP!*  Maybe the FBI deleted them?  Who Knows?  – Seriously, I’m trying to contact people to beg for copies of their photos.

Easter Bunnies!

As always, you know we’re busy at Beauty & the Beast Costumes, Chattanooga when Christmas hangs around until Valentine’s day.   After almost 2 years of very little business and plenty of time to goof off, it’s been crazy busy with Halloween, Christmas, New Year’s, and many themed costume parties PLUS more Fall/Winter school plays than we have ever had before.  Word must be getting out that we’re the best place in town, also, the only year-round costume shop left in the area.  With shipping issues and supplier problems galore, some of our inventory is getting a little picked over….   But NEVER FEAR!   The EASTER BUNNY is HERE!


Times have been tough for a lot of folks out there, so while everything else keeps going up in price, our bunnies are still the same $55 Rental rate that they have been for over 20 years.

Save your Eyes!

It’s that time of year again when people are looking to purchase colored contact lenses for the spookiest look ever.   Unfortunately, the window of opportunity on those has probably closed.  Here is your annual reminder from the FDA:

“All contact lenses must be prescribed by a doctor, including decorative lenses. Any contact lenses that are not prescribed by a doctor are illegal and could cause you harm.”
