Warm Friendly Service with a smile! – Not sure about the negative posts but my experience was excellent. The employees were extremely helpful. Never felt rushed. I asked a bunch of questions and they walked around with me until I found the outfit I needed. Everyone in the place smiled and said hello when they walked past me which almost NEVER happens in New York. I felt welcome.
I will make this my destination if ever I need a costume. I highly recommend it!
Every Year – I stumbled upon this shop a couple of years back through a friend and wow I was impressed. You can spend a whole day if you please looking and trying on costumes. They have everything.....and that is no exaggeration. If you have a company themed party or just a little get together I would definitely recommend stopping by this shop!
Glad you had fun in our shop. Creative Costume Co. can easily be an all day visit ! Half the fun of going out in costume is finding the one that's right for you!
Exactly what I wanted-a cool period costume – I am new to NY from LA and went here through a recommendation of a co- worker who said he has never seen anything that comes close to the authenticity of the period costumes that he saw here. My two big "MUST's" the authenticity ( I was invited to a huge NY museum crowd theme party), and cleanliness of the costumes. Wow- this place is great. Authentic and whimsical! They fitted my gown, had a great brand new (in the wrapper )wig for me-and even helped with accessories and shoes. Great help, cool dressing rooms, very cool space. Hello NY! See you next theme event....
I could never go anywhere else. – I have been renting from this company for years! They have EVERYTHING I have ever imagined, and costumes that one could never never think of.
The ladies have been more then personable and comforting. The individual attention I receive has made it a pleasure to shop. (Even years when it was a couple of days before Halloween, and the pressure was ON.)
The prices are always within my spending range, and I ALWAYS feel I'm receiving my moneys worth. I strongly recommend Creative Costume to anyone looking to have an exquisite Halloween this year!
(As far as people with negative reviews: think twice about your complaints, it may just be you.)
Great costumes at great prices – I go here every year for my Halloween costume. You will find many original costume ideas and it is very affordable compared to other NYC costume stores. I definately recommend Creative Costume for anyone dressing up this Halloween.
So glad you have been renting your Halloween costumes from us every year! Please come in and see what's new this year.
Great Elvis Costume – I rented an Elvis costume from creative costume for Halloween a few years ago. It was the hit of the party. People were astounded by the quality and the detail of the costume, they though Elvis had actually come back to life. The on-site alterations were crucial to me as the costume fit perfectly. I will definitely be using creative costume again this year for my Halloween costume!!
In order to be mistaken for "Elvis" you must have the perfect fit! Thanks for the compliment, but it takes the right person to make the costume look good!
It's hard to tell which is better, the selection or the service – We've gone back four years running to Creative Costume, and we've always been completely thrilled with the results. The costumes are high quality - so if you're just looking for a mask or a cape, this isn't really your place; you have to really enjoy dressing up to get the most out of it and for the price (our costumes run about $250 on average). The garment quality is fantastic, and they'll do on-site alterations to make it fit you - same day or come back later. The women who work there have a keen eye - they've often suggested something I wouldn't have thought of that turned out looking amazing, and they always want to help you have the complete look, with all the accessories you'll need. It's the first place I'd recommend for anyone looking to get their Hallowe'en on in a serious way!
Thank you for the positive review . . . we enjoy finding the perfect costume to fit the customer's personality and figure, everyone wins!
Everything is easier because we use better quality fabrics, trims and professional tailoring tricks!
REALLY BAD SERVICE – I just have been around town looking for a costume, never did wear one ever. This was the first place I tried and I left within minutes. Soon as I came in I was rudely asked what I wanted. The place is dark and dreary and not inviting at all. Actually the dressing rooms were nice. The costumes were all in plastic bags so you couldnt really look around. The help was terrible and I left without finding anything. The costumes were not great, just okay. I think if you are in business you should treat people better.
Each customer should be treated nicely, because afterall they represent us when wearing our costumes. Our showroom space is packed with costumes and may appear dark when looking down the aisles, but each costume is clean and covered in plastic.
Theatrical-quality costumes, all dressed up and ready to rent. – In Short
Belles of the ball know this costume rental palace. A handy list catalouges thousands of guises, and the neat-and-tidy racks of elaborate finery are sorted by type and period--from 1400s medieval to 1960s mod--for easy browsing. Glamorous getups, ranging from $50 to $350 and in adult sizes only, include matching accessories like wigs, jewelry, boas or swords. Coordinated costumes for couples also abound. Pair up as famous duos like Aladdin and Jasmine, or the more risque Cop and Hooker.
REALLY BAD SERVICE – Upon entering this shop I was instantly asked " What do you Want", without even a hello. The
service was only good when they were charging my credit card. Rude employees, and the feeling you were intruding into their private world. The shop itself, left a lot to be desired. Everything was covered in plastic, which made you feel like you were in a store room or a dry
cleaners. Dingy, Drab and Lack Luster. Costumes were adequate, not great!
