A memorable costume can turn a regular Halloween partygoer into a minor celebrity, or at least hide their half-sleeve tattoo of ALF. At D&J Costumes, you can do both of those things via an endless stock of rentable garb, which features everything from pop culture icons to period ensembles and holiday characters. You'll also find racks of accessories covering every bit of exposed wall in the store. These include wigs, hats, and mustaches, as well as masks hoping to get their empty sockets filled in by customers' eyes. Those who prefer to keep their own face out in the open can transform it with a rainbow of cream makeup, stage blood, and greasepaint.

They do the setup and takedown, allowing party people to attend to their birthdays, carnivals, and corporate events. As a special touch sure to delight the little ones, they can also populate shindigs with costume characters such as Elmo and Winnie the Pooh.
