Costumes ‘N’ Parties
Add a red helium balloon, perfect your creepy stare and you’re bound to spook more than a handful of party-goers. Why, even your Uber driver might have nightmares after dropping you off!
At Costumes ‘N’ Parties, you can rent or buy costumes from some of the newest and most popular movies. If It isn’t really your cup of tea, you can even go for a Guardians of the Galaxy or Assassin’s Creed character! Or add a few finishing touches to your costume with their wide selection of wigs, props, masks and stage makeup.

CCM (Custommade Costume & Merchandise)
Star Wars costumes are always a crowd favourite and easy to coordinate with your group. Everyone knows them, and everyone loves them. Just make sure you get costumes of high quality. You want to look like the real Darth Vader, not a walking black recycle bag!
CCM has got your back with the best-quality Star Wars outfits; you’ll look like you just walked off the set of The Last Jedi. For Game of Thrones fans, CCM also carries costumes for Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen (you’ll have to tame your own dragon though)!
Rent your costumes or even have a costume custom-made specially for you! CCM is also the first and only distributor of Worbla Thermoplastics, a thermoplastic that can be moulded into your own custom costumes and designs.

Speaking of being around dangerous creatures, ride on the crazy dinosaur mascot trend (seriously, it’s everywhere) and trawl up to parties as a safari explorer! This look works best if you have other animals with you – coordinate with your pals who want to dress up as deer and lions and you’ll totally look the part.
Pick up this jungle getup from Moephosis Concepts, which also specialises in very flashy costumes. Your friends can get their animal print costumes here too, along with out of the world feathered head accessories that’ll add one whole metre above their heads.
Rent or customise costumes for Halloween, parties and other special events!

JCM Costume Rental
If humour is your signature style, rock out in this Lao Fu Zi outfit. You’ll be the joy of the party without even saying anything! Make sure you grab along a pal who will play Big Potato (the shorter, the better). You’ll be the funniest pair in any room!
For more comedic costumes, check out JCM Costume Rental. It also carries the Lady Boss outfit – yes, the hilariously iconic one from Stephen Chow’s Kung Fu movie. Otherwise, there’s the Satay Uncle and Policeman With Shorts from the old Singapore era!
You can rent the costumes for a 3-day period so there’s ample time for you to return the costumes once you’re done with it. Laundering will also be done by JCM Costume Rental at no additional cost so you don’t have to worry about hygiene!

The reminiscing doesn’t stop there. Remember Teletubbies? No, don’t go as Tinkie-Winkie or Po – everybody will shun you. Go as the adorable (albeit hardly noticeable) flowers care-freely swaying in the fields!
Global Mascot is definitely your go-to shop. Its flower mascot costumes are wired with LED lights; even without your megawatt smile, you’ll be the brightest bulb at the party! Other cute mascot costumes include a donut, a bottle of cooking oil and an Philips iron. If you don’t quite fancy bulky mascot outfits, try its exquisitely-made Serpent King and Pharaoh costumes.
Global Mascot has supported the NDP, Chingay Parade and the Youth Olympic Games with their costumes, and you can also custom-order fibreglass, LED and inflatable costumes.

The best part about a Corpse Bride outfit? The endless make-up possibilities, of course! Go wild watching YouTube tutorials (@Aleena Averly, you’re welcome) and watch your costume come alive. Well, not too alive too, if you know what we mean.
Truly Yours has this Corpse Bride costume in stock. Better yet, try its Doom Bride costume, which looks even more like a wedding dress with its long train. If you want something that looks more alive, do a lovely Disney Princes or a gypsy – add a crystal ball, frenzied hair and oversized glasses, and you’ll look just like Professor Trelawney from Harry Potter.
Truly Yours is great for the ladies who want to dress up as their favourite cabaret icons! Do note that there is no rental available.
