Costume parties are always fun and choosing your outfit should also be an enjoyable experience. The holiday season is the perfect excuse to throw a party, even if it’s just for your closest friends and family. If you are planning to rent a costume anytime soon, here are my recommended places to rent costumes in Singapore.
I have an annual year-end costume party with a certain group of friends and this is our go-to costume rental place since they give discounts for group rentals. Last year, our theme was Heroes and Villains. I went as Wonder Woman and won Best Costume! Thanks to the alteration service of Awesome Costumes, my costume fit perfectly. I truly felt like an Amazonian Warrior! The shop owner, Grace Wong, is a graduate from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) – School of Fashion Studies, so she certainly knows her work. She is very hands on with her shop and she is often around to assist her customers. Her staff are also very kind and patient.
Customade Costume & Merchandise, more popularly known as CCM, is a family-run costume customizations and rental business that has been around for more than 20 years. They have over 20,000 costumes to choose from and more than 15,000 accessories. If you have no idea what to pick, the staff are ready to help you out and suggest the perfect look for you according to your taste. Their wide range of costumes include superheroes, fairytale and cinema characters, international costumes, work-related outfits, and medieval regalia. They also have garments for different occasions like Christmas, Halloween, and Chinese New Year.
This is worth mentioning because of its owner, Moe Kasim, who is an award-winning costume designer. Moephosis Concept first started as a costume provider mainly for local theatre productions. It later expanded as a costume rental business in 2008. Moe has also ventured into creating costumes for Miss Universe Singapore candidates. With all of his accolades, you can expect top quality costumes from Moephosis Concept. I also love how their costumes are well-maintained. They all look and smell good as new. You certainly don’t want a dirty and smelly costume! Moephosis Concept is your best bet if you are attending a fancy dinner and dance or a semi-formal costume party that warrants an elaborate and top quality costume. Don’t forget to book your appointment first before going for fittings.
