Palos Verdes Costume Closet Extended October 2015 Hours
Halloween is almost here and the Costume Closet in Palos Verdes has extended their hours. This is a benefit for Palos Verdes homes owners who need costumes for themselves and their children. During the month of October 2015 the Costume Closet is open Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.
If you haven’t been to the Costume Closet lately then you are in for a big surprise! Their inventory has grown to over 8,000 costumes and they have increased not only their Halloween costume area, but also their theatrical/period clothing, wedding/formal wear and high end vintage clothing. Their accessory and shoe department has tripled since my last visit and now can be accessed quickly with their new computer system. The rental pricing cannot be beat, and rental periods are usually for a week except for specialty items and theatrical costumes. Credit cards are now accepted for payment. It is a good idea to reserve your costumes early as they seem to go fast. Whether you’re doing a school project, dressing for Halloween, or need something fun for a costume party, this is the place to visit. You can find just about anything here and you will be able to complete the entire look with all their accessories.
The Costume Closet is located in the former Malaga Cove School grounds in Palos Verdes Estates near the Palos Verdes School District headquarters. It is a community service program of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Council of PTAs and is supported by volunteers which keep this non profit running. Originally, the Costume Closet was organized to help support the community’s need for theatrical costuming for its local schools; but now, after thirty seven years, it has developed into a full party event supplier. The Costume Closet is looking for teamwork oriented high school volunteers from the district to help out and they will receive community service hours.
The Costume Closet is located at 300 “B” Paseo del Mar, Palos Verdes Estates. For more information call (310) 378-5005 or go to www.palosverdes.com/costumecloset.
