Wardrobe Witchery

Theatrical Costume Design, Sales & Rentals

Rental Structure:

The current costume rental rates are based on complete productions and are quoted per principal/chorus costume, in U.S. funds. To arrange for a price quotation, please use the contact form. 

Rates quoted are for 3 performances in one week, or 5 performances in a two-week period. Any subsequent weeks are priced at 50% of the initial rates for the first additional week and 25% for any weeks thereafter. Rental rates can include altering, tagging, bagging and dry-cleaning of the costumes. The costumes are shipped two weeks prior to the opening performance. If they are required earlier, there is an additional charge.


Up-to-date measurements and production details (including chorus breakdown and cast list) are required at least 10 weeks prior to the ship date. This ensures that any problem sizes or special requests are dealt with before the costumes are pulled and altered. (Measurements required are height, weight, chest/bust, waist, waist-to-floor, hips, inseam, and head size.) For some rentals shoes may be available as well, adding shoes is a $10 a pair rental cost in addition to the per costume fee. 

Costume Rental Agreement and Declaration Form:

When rental of a production is confirmed, Wardrobe Witchery will send the customer a "Costume Rental Agreement" indicating the rates, performance dates and monies required. (For universities, a purchase order is also required.)


Costumes are shipped via Fed-ex, UPS or Trucking company. Shipping charges, both ways, are the customer's responsibility. Costumes are shipped in boxes 26" long, 17" wide, and 21" high. The average weight per box is 50-80 lbs. All boxes must be insured with the shipping company both ways. 

Returning Costumes:

Costumes must be shipped within two days following the closing performance.
