The Costume Corner has been in business for three decades. We bought a dance studio with a small costume selection in 1990. That dance studio used the Costume Corner name to promote it's rental selection of costumes. In 1992 the Costume Corner was split off of the dance studio and has continued to the present day.
Originally, the Costume Corner was a retail and rental store for costumes and accessories. We have expanded the selection of rental costumes to almost 10,000 costume combinations. We have a wide selections of costumes from mascots to period to comic. We are still growing and the internet presence is new for us.
While we have always sold dance wear and shoes, the original emphasis was on costumes. Since 2002, due to customer demand, we have shifted our emphasis toward dance wear, dance shoes and praise wear. We now go by the name of East Bay Dance Supply. We are now a dealer for Capezio, Bloch, Leos, Eurotard, Body Wrapper, Style Queen, Stehpanies Dance Shoes and more.
It's an exciting time as more and more people are discovering us. We try our best to be friendly and helpful. If we don't have an item we'll try to help you find it. If possible we'll call around to the shops we know in the area. If that does not work, we may be able to special order the item for you. We do not charge freight or restocking fees for special orders from our normal suppliers. If the special order does not work for you and you do not wish to reorder, we offer a full refund on non clearance items.
