Monster Waving to You

The History of Fun.com

...and it all started in a garage!

Fun.com 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.
Whoa.

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.

The 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.
