1. Get everything you need for your costume party at Woodbridge Costumes

Woodbridge Costumes is one of our favorite costume rental companies in Toronto, thanks to its variety. They specialize in period and disco costumes, including wigs, accessories, masks, makeup, hats, and more. All their merch is available for rent and even for purchase if you decide you just can’t part with your new favorite costume at the end of a rental period. We can’t even begin to list everything they have available, so check out their costume rental list to get a sense of what’s on offer.

A happy Woodbridge Costumes customer shares the following about their experience: “I would definitely recommend this place!! From service, the quality, and pricing, everything was great, and also had no issues placing my order, was very easy. The Costumes were better than I expected and reasonably priced. Was such a pleasant experience dealing with Woodbridge Costumes.”

2. Have a blast exploring the range of goods at Thunder Thighs Costumes

Thunder Thighs Costumes has an unbelievable array of costume options, whatever your needs. The store contains 7 million pieces that it has accumulated over its 40 years of operation. As they describe it: “From rare period pieces, to iconic character and set styles, to hard-to-find or unusual modern costumes–and pretty much anything else you need — Thunder Thighs has film-quality costumes for every production, large and small.” 

Since they tend to work with productions only, they do not carry packaged costumes for events. Before heading over there, be sure to schedule an appointment first.

According to one reviewer, who’s clearly a mega-fan of Thunder Thighs: “It’s amazing. Run, don’t walk … Come here, it’s pretty incredible.” Another enthusiastic reviewer noted: “This is a very fun spot. Their collection of vintage costumes is impossibly big, and they would have anything you could be looking for in [the] way of a uniform or period costume piece. Suits, pants, and shirts are listed by the decade they come from with plain and outrageous pieces from each period.”

You can also browse the costumes that are currently available to rent, such as these for women, from all different eras. 

As a reviewer commented about this total gem: “I seriously cannot get enough of Reflections’ amazing clothing and costumes, but above all, the attention that this family-owned business gives to me and every friend (and boss!) I have brought over to the east end store.”

There’s an evident passion behind everything they do over at Reflections — the owner, Karyn, is always more than willing to take the time to give personalized advice and feedback about costumes and accessories. This kind of service can be invaluable, especially if you’re new to costume rentals.

4. Nab stunning period costumes for events and productions from Malabar Ltd.

Malabar Costume Rentals offers thousands of historical period costumes, going back to ancient civilizations up to as recently as the 1980s. In the thousands of years between, you’ll find biblical, medieval, Renaissance, Elizabethan, Victorian, and many more costumes, all categorized by era, region, and type of costume. They even have mascot costume rentals if that’s more what you’re in the market for.

If you’re getting married in the Greater TO area, Malabar even offers costume wedding parties! It’s definitely one of the more unique ways of getting hitched.

If you’re interested, you can reach out to their Toronto Rental Department at [email protected], and they’ll send you a photo of any of their costumes. Clearly, there’s a reason that Malabar is one of our absolute favorite costume rental companies in Toronto!

5. Procure high-quality, transportive costumes from Theatrix Costume House

For more than half a century, Theatrix Costume House has provided theatrical-quality costumes for stage productions and film and television. But they also serve the public for more standard events, like Halloween and costume parties. This is the place to go if you’re looking for genuinely realistic, high-quality costumes. In fact, it’s one of the largest privately owned collections of such costumes in North America! 

Check out their online rental shop to see what they have available, which you can sort according to numerous categories to find the perfect outfit for your big event. And if, instead of a costume rental, you need something really personalized and specific, they even make top-notch custom designs.

6. Get incredibly intricate costumes for your production at Berman and Company Costume Rentals

Berman and Company is an unparalleled resource and one that Toronto residents are fortunate to have access to. Since they purchased the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s wardrobe in 2007, they now have over ONE MILLION costumes. From characters, historical military, period pieces, and contemporary costumes. But you won’t get too overwhelmed. They have everything cleverly sorted by era, style, and color, making it simple to find the outfit that’s right for you.

Their 23,000-square-foot showroom is a major supplier for the TV, film, fashion, and photography industries. Note that Berman and Company’s costumes are of such high quality that they’re primarily oriented toward professional productions and maybe not the office Halloween party.
