The Department of Theatre and Dance at UC Davis can transform you into Frozen’s Elsa or Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow, just in time for Halloween.
The department’s Enchanted Cellar costume rental shop has about 175 head-to-toe costume kits available for rent for about $75 each — which includes the cost of dry-cleaning, said Roxanne Femling, costume shop director. Individual pieces, like suits or hats, are also available for rent.
Some of the costumes have been used for theater productions, and others were assembled specifically for the rental shop, Femling said. They include Greek gods and goddesses, and characters from anime series.
The rental shop (in the basement of Wright Hall) is open year-round, and proceeds help fund a student assistant who works in the department. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays — which means your last day to get a Halloween costume is this Friday (Oct. 30). You can ask for an after-hours rental appointment by calling (530) 752-0740.
Halloween rentals can be worn for multiple events, as the costumes aren’t due back until Nov. 4.
