If all the world's a stage, then humpback whales are some remarkably talented actors. Dress the part with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of rental costumes and more at The Theatre Garage, located on 115 Street.
An array of rental costumes, makeup, wigs, and more festively fill The Theatre Garage's 7,500-square-foot space. Play up your natural demure side with a Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Bashful costume ($45), or camouflage a bad hair day with a Beetlejuice costume ($70). A fully furnished Darth Vader disguise ($125) allows for anonymous hogging of the candy bowl, and landlocked sea hearts can reminisce about the tumultuous times on the USS Beagle with a pirate costume ($75) and a Captain Hook wig ($25). Creatively concoct an inspired ensemble, with individual pieces such as corsets ($20+), skirts ($15+), and ’80s glam dresses ($60+) available for costume construction. The store carries Ben Nye and Kryolan makeup, wigs for rent ($25–$40) and for sale ($17–$45), and a plethora of latex face masks ($15–$100). Most rental prices are valued per day.
Though Halloween hangs just around the corner, The Theatre Garage stays open year-round for Christmas, Easter, and Tuesday costume needs. The friendly and helpful staff members will ensure each customer walks away with the appropriate equipment to achieve ghoulish transformation.
