About

In 1999 I figured I could sell costumes on this internet thing...

Going Ape Costume is the result of a hobby that got too big for it's britches. It grew into renaissance dresses, saloon gals, dragons with wings, ghosts with twinkling lights, Elvis suits and whatever other sequin covered thing stole my fancy.

Then there was Ebay.

And then there was Facebook.

And then there was Etsy.

And then there was a way I could do what I love in my rural community, 200 miles from the closest community theater or costume shop. From hand sewing sequins to learning how to craft armor out of thermoplastics, I aim to tackle the world right out of my sewing room.

    From going trick or treating as Boy George in fourth grade, to sewing in 4H, to making genie costumes for my entire color guard team in high school, to managing a costume rental and costuming in college, the love of costume is in my bones!

Additional policies and FAQs
Items produced in a smoke free home.

Fabrics and costumes are pre-washed in Tide detergent and liquid Snuggle or liquid Kirkland fabric softener. Some costumes are pressed with Niagra non-aerosol spray starch. If you have specific fabric care requirements, just say so...we'll accommodate you!

A home based business means there are home based cats. Care is taken so that cats don't intrude on production spaces. If you have specific allergy requirements, just say so...we'll accommodate you!
