Q: For how long can I rent a costume?

A: We rent our costumes out for a period of 3 days: you may pick your costume up the day before you need it and it is due back to us the day after.

Q: Can I keep the costume for longer than 3 days?

A: We can make special arrangements for you for out-of-town events, extended needs, etc., if you make arrangements with us prior to your pick up date.  Additional fees may apply.

Q: Do you have pictures of the costume I want on your website?

A: While we do have many pictures on our website, it is not possible to have pictures of everything!  Our warehouse is home to over 50,000 costume pieces, hats, and accessories.  We highly recommend that you make an appointment with one of our Costume Coordinators to guide you through our collection and help you select costumes that fit your size and needs.

Q: Do I need to make an appointment, or can I just stop in?**

A: While we will never turn you away at Performing Arts Supply, we want to ensure that you get the best possible experience while visiting us.  Our Costume Coordinators not only host Individual fittings, but are also called upon to pull and perform alterations on entire shows as well as guide teachers and directors who are pulling their own costumes.  Setting an appointment allows our Coordinators to plan your visit and have ideas ready for you when you arrive.  If you do stop by without an appointment, you may be placed on a wait list during busy periods, or asked to set an appointment for a later time based on the immediate availability of a Costume Coordinator. By booking an appointment, we want to ensure our customers are getting the best service and costume choices possible during your fitting time. 

Q: How long have you been in business? 

A: Performing Arts Supply Co. has been serving the Greater Houston area, Texas, the Gulf Coast, and the United States since 1971.  We are the oldest costume shop in Houston and we are celebrating our 51st year in September 2022! We are honored to serve you and thank you for choosing Performing Arts Supply!
