Since 1982, Northwest Costume has provided quality costumes, makeup, and event supplies to the Pacific Northwest.
Over three decades ago, Mary Johnson started Northwest Costume as a way to provide halloween costumes to her immediate community. Hundreds of plays, musicals, fundraisers, auctions, dances, and weddings later, and the little costume shop has grown into a Tacoma institution, providing dazzling ensembles to the South Sound, and greater Seattle area.
For many of our customers, a visit to Northwest costume starts with their own event or show. Our full service shop specializes in creating personalized ensembles for your event. Our extensive research library, on-site sewing and cleaning facilities allow us to provide our customers with a quality experience.
Standard full costume rentals average $59. This includes tuxedo rental. Deluxe costume rentals begin at $75. Separate pieces run from $5-40. We are an authorized Ben Nye and Mehron dealer. Northwest costume also carries wigs, masquerade masks, hats, and jewelry. The Avelon Ballroom, above NW Costume is complete with stage, tables and chairs, restrooms, warming/cooling kitchen, and coat check! Please call for details.
