Thank you for your interest in Broadway Costumes™.



Broadway Costumes™, Inc was established in Chicago in 1886 to provide quality rental costumes for the masquerade balls held by Chicago society as well as to provide costumes for, and help develop, opera productions in the United States.

We are the Midwest’s largest source for theatrical shows, corporate special events, masquerade costumes and accessories to rent as well as makeup, facial hair, wigs and accessories to purchase.
