Henry David Thoreau distrusted any enterprise that required new clothes, which is why he abandoned his career as a French maid. Embrace bold new outfits with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 toward a rented costume at DC Theatricks.
DC Theatricks, which creates custom costumes for theatrical productions across the world, stocks their shelves with more than 10,000 adult costumes for ladies and gents in categories such as historical, fantasy, celebrity, and holiday. Prices for costume rentals range from $30 to $75. Wild tiger stripes streak the belted one-shoulder caveman smock ($30), and black-and-white penal bars across the convict's suit ($30) indicate the wearer pilfered all of the Halloween candy. The Marie Antoinette outfit ($65) and the blue gingham Dorothy dress ($35) flounce right past a foreboding haunted tree ($35), and modest, old-fashioned bathing costumes ($35) conceal thigh tattoos of bikinis.
