From a suburban Lil’ Kim to a housebound Stormtrooper, you’ll find everything you need to let your imagination play.
Reality is officially stranger than fiction (thanks, 2020), so why not match that with your wardrobe and reinvent yourself as, well, anything you can possibly imagine? Once you step through the doors of this Glendale gem, you’ll feel as though you’ve wandered straight into Narnia. It’s a boutique-sized wardrobe that leads to a sartorial wonderland with all sorts of fantastical creatures just waiting to be brought to life by a wearer.
StarMakers Costumes has been around for around 30 years and in that time it has accumulated an impressive inventory of over 30,000 high-end costumes. There is something for practically any character or any occasion you can dream of. Whether you’re a Cosplay enthusiast, a themed Zoom party socialite, a hardcore trick-or-treater, or you just fancy going undercover to escape your kids for the day, you’ll want to pay this place a visit.
Beyond convincing outfits, you’ll find enough rentals, special FX and make-up to recreate the whole Star Wars trilogy. You can even hire talent to help you flesh out the cast. If you’re more of a dreamer than a pop culture aficionado, then StarMakers will help you realize your own fantasy with custom builds.
While there are scores of shops carrying Hollywood art department leftovers, this little secret is a one-stop-shop and you won’t need to remortgage the house for your moment of glory either.
