BrownBoots Costume Company designs, builds, rents and sells costumes of all shapes in scenic Douglas, Alaska

We opened in October 2013 with the goal of making it fun and easy for individuals and performing arts companies alike to get in costume! Our name comes from the ubiquitous brown rubber X-tuff boots worn by Southeast Alaskans for all occasions, including costume parties.

Our inventory comprises the costume collections from several local theaters and operas in Juneau plus numerous private donations. We also design and construct new items on site and serve as the costume department for local performing arts companies.

Our store-front sells discount vintage clothes, overstock theater costumes and original pieces made at the shop.

    I love solving problems with fabric and yarn. I think all costumes should be a little bit silly and have oversize hidden pockets.
