“One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art.” - Oscar Wilde

Presented by Mary Wiggins / CostumeWorx September 2, 2021

Hiding in plain sight in the new arts district, just minutes from downtown, is a massive 65,000 square foot building bulging with costumes to delight performers and special-occasion enthusiasts alike.

Stepping inside CostumeWorx, you will think you have stumbled upon a cross between Willy Wonka’s closet and P.T. Barnum’s back room.

If you are the person who starts decorating for Halloween in September, if you love to stroll into a themed event with a jaw-dropping ensemble, if the thought of a “costume in a bag” makes you shiver, you are in the right place.

Tasseled elephants. Racks of costumes from every era. Wigs and cirque make-up, props and prosthetics – it’s a magical place where your imagination can take flight and your dreams can come true. You really can be Cleopatra for a night. Or Austin Powers. Or the Phantom of the Opera. It’s all here.

And if you are looking for something truly one-of-a-kind, just step beyond the aisles of costumes to find designers, stitchers, stylists, sculptors and painters with the skills and experience to bring your vision to life.

Seasoned theatre directors, Houston’s most creative party hosts, gala chairs and drag queen legends know that CostumeWorx is the place where they can create or find stunning costumes that make a statement.

If D-I-Y is your thing, CostumeWorx has a wide variety of theatrical fabricstrims, feathers, beads and buttons to make your creation special.

Ready to mount a full-scale theatrical production? CostumeWorx has done it, bringing in additional local artists and craftsman to create and build costumes that rival a Broadway production.

At CostumeWorx, you’ll find everything you need to bring down the house.
