Fun 101

We like to think of ourselves as being pretty awesome. Each day we get up, ride scooters and sell Halloween costumes. It's the job we all wanted to have when we were eight. Because we do something so different, so unique and so fun, we work hard and take a lot of pride in everything we do.

History of started years ago with the discovery of a purple monster hiding inside the Fallenstein's home in Mankato, MN. The monster imbued the family with a love of Halloween and told them to spread it across the entire world. Armed with nothing but a sewing machine and some serious skills, one of our founders made Halloween costumes for her children every year, but it wasn't until her kids were grown that the idea of opening a season costume rental shop took hold. Starting in the garage with only a couple dozen costumes, Costumes Galore became a season success in the Mankato, Minnesota area which got bigger and bigger each year.

...And then we took the business online.

We went from a small, family-run business operating out of a garage a couple months a year into a huge, family-run business with over 100 year-round employees and thousands of season employees, operating out of a 200,000 square foot warehouse in less than a decade! Suffice it to say, the monster is pleased.

Our Company Culture

Life is better when you're just a little bit weird.

If you're going to be in a business dedicated to selling costumes, you're going to have a pretty high quirk quotient going on, and that's just the way we like it. Our CEO has been known to scare people while dressed as a Storm Trooper, Nerf darts come sailing over cubicle walls throughout the day, and riding scooters is not just encouraged, but a key ingredient to our Shipping department's high productivity. We're a company that's a little different, and we like it that way.

Core Values & Expectations

Life is better when you're just a little bit weird.

It's fairly obvious that we like to have fun around here, but anyone we actually bring on has to have a bit of a serious side as well. We need people who are dedicated, passionate, open to new ideas and willing to help out anyone, anywhere. A lot of businesses say that they are a family, but at, we mean it. We have some of the smartest and most talented employees in the world, and we have a hunch it has something to do with the values we hold most dearly.

  1. Find your passion.
  2. Focus on the positive.

We sell a variety of products from costumes to
t-shirts, decorations, toys & so much more! - Halloween is the most fun holiday ever invented, which means is the most fun when it comes to online shopping. When you love Halloween as much as we do, it's no surprise that we've become one of the biggest online costume sellers in the world, offering an insanely great selection of popular costumes, as well as our own line of exclusive costumes. We sell Halloween decorations too, because we're so dedicated to celebrating Halloween that we even want your house to dress up. We aren't Halloween snobs though. Believing that most any party can be made better with a costume, we also carry costumes for many other holidays and occasions. - Since it is impossible to imagine a garment more universally liked than a t-shirt, was born. After all, we want to be universally liked, too! Sure, there are other sites that sell t-shirts, but is unique because we sell a line of original, artist designed t-shirts from artists all over the world. We also carry a crazy huge selection of band tees, movie tees and other pop culture t-shirts. Our goal is to be the best place to shop for t-shirts on the web. That, and world peace, but we'll settle for the former.
