Can you provide costumes for a wide variety of themed events?
We pride ourselves on the variety of characters we are able to offer within a given theme. A Western shin dig, for example, includes not only cowboys and saloon hall gals, but Mexicans, Spaniards, Native Americans, proper ladies and gents, gamblers, miners, madams and outlaws. This strategy works best, as it accommodates varying levels of participation and comfort, and results in a more interesting and memorable event.
What services do you provide for off-site events?
You can rest assured when you contract with Mardi Gras Costume Shop for any off-site event, every facet will be taken care of professionally. We are preferred vendors for the internationally recognized resorts in Scottsdale and Phoenix and as such, we are experienced in delivery, complete set-up, breakdown, and professional on-site costuming. Plus, we'll even give you our cell phone numbers, and, answer!
