This is Austin's go-to for Halloween, Mardi Gras, Carnaval, and any other party involving huge feather boas or funny glasses. Absolutely packed to the gills with plastic revelry, try going on a weekday when it's less packed -- Saturday is bedlam.
The Best Costume Store in Austin – I was so impressed with this great costume store. I went to a fancy costume store on Burnet and they just pointed to the row I might be interested in. But when I checked out Lucy In Disguise, everyone who worked there were more than just helpful, they sent me email, they called me, and when I was at the store they remembered what I was looking for and found me the perfect outfit for my ball. Julie was so great, and a young man also helped me. I was very impressed at the organizing of their costumes and accessories and how very helpful and kind they were. And the prices were very reasonable! I recommend this costume store over all others!!
great costume place, well know landmark – I can't tell you how long this store has been there and how many times I've gotten great costumes from here for an event. Now with holloween coming up I just found another great costume for the parties. It's not fancy or anything like 'cause it is just a costume shop after all. But considering all the stuff they have to organize it's pretty well sorted out and things are easy to find though a little cramped. I would def. recommend going to Lucy in Disguise if you haven't found what you're looking for this holiday season.
The best costume shop around. – At Lucy In Disguise With Diamonds, I can shop with confidence. This place is amazing. Great staff. Great service. You can't find a better place for costume supplies in Austin. Not to mention, their prices are friggin' awesome. They even give discounts to us stage performers. I will be back... a lot.
Buyer Beware – Last year, my daughter had the lead in her school musical Annie. Two weeks before the performance, we went to Lucy in Disguise to rent an Annie costume. It appeared to be cheaply made and pricey to rent, but I felt I had no alternative. One week before we needed the costume, my wife found a much better option at a second hand clothing store. I immediately contacted Lucy in Disguise to cancel the reservation. I canceled the reservation a week in advance and although the costume never left their store I was charged full price. Buyer beware.
This local favorite has lines out the door of folks looking for the coolest, most creative outfits to rent or own. – In Short
Imagine combing through every thrift and vintage store in town and picking out only the coolest clothing. Then imagine just how long that would take. Lucy in Disguise has taken away the search and assembled the best that these stores have to offer. Searching for an old-style swimsuit? How about something in sharkskin? Need some accessories to go with that? Lucy's has the beads and the baubles and even the boas--not to mention costume rentals.
Unbelievable Selection Of Costumes! – This is the most amazing store I've seen outside of London or Manhattan! Over 50,000 costumes in stock at all times!!! Just about every costume wig ever made is available here along with wigs, make-up, jewelry, vintage clothing, and an incredibly cool and hip staff! Check out the sale section in the back (ask where it is--the store is set up like a funhouse maze). I found a 1940's bathing suit for a dollar and a pair of bell-bottoms for 3 bucks! Yes, there is a line around the block just to get in around Halloween, but the rest of the year offers quick and efficient service.
good costumes way over priced. don't go there expected to spend less than $40 for an entire outfit.
great variety & helpful staff – I went in to look for some specific halloween makeup and even though it was very crowded the staff was extremely helpful and very quick. They have huge selection of everything costume related that you can think of.
