Costume Rentals are for a one-week rental period. A cost of 15% per day will be charged on extended rentals. If the rental is for two weeks or longer, a 50% per week extra charge will be allocated to the rental fee. Special rates are available for large productions that require a numerous amount of costumes over an extended period of time. These rates depend on the types of costumes rented and the amount of time they are needed. Our costume shop is available to quote on your specific requirements. You can reach our Toronto Rentals Department at (416) 598-2581 ext. 230 or at rentals@malabar.net. Our Ottawa Rentals Department can be contacted at (613) 225-8374 or ottawa@malabar.net.

Halloween Policy:

You can rent any full costume starting October 17th for the basic one-week fee and keep it until November 3rd. There are a few exceptions - Mascots, licensed Superheroes and Villains, and Suits of Armour. These exceptions are available for the standard one-week rental. You can book your Halloween costume starting September 1st. Payment in full is due at the time of booking. Halloween costumes cannot be reserved without payment, therefore we will not accept reservations over the telephone. There are no refunds.


All costumes are dry-cleaned after each use and these costs are included in the rental fee.

A valid credit card is required as a security deposit on all rentals. There are no exceptions. If you are unable to come in to the store and present your credit card in person, we require either a faxed photocopy or an emailed scan of the front and back of your card.
