 Testimonials 

5 Star Yelp Review: "I am really impressed with the genuine customer service of this place.  The people are super personable and really want to help in any way they can.  This is quality AND quantity - they have everything.  I came in with a picture and Marissa was able to help me narrow down exactly which make-up I needed for my costume.  If you're dressing up for ANYTHING, they have a really wide selection of costumes and make-up for more than just Halloween. They really care about the customer and are just genuinely nice."

“I recently purchased the Ghostly Gent and the matching Ghostly Lady costumes. My husband and I were tour guides for the Santa Rosa Historical Society's Annual Ghost Walk in Milton, FL this year. Our costumes and characters were a BIG HIT! I have another event coming up and will be ordering our costumes for that event from Make Believe once again. Their service and additional to detail is excellent. They are there for me not only at Halloween but all year long no matter what event I need a costume for!”

“5 Star Yelp Review: "Post a poor Party City experience, I googled to find this place then popped in frantic to find a last minute set of wings and a halo for my kid's school play- because some people are not issued them and have to BUY them. The vibe was cool, the staff was friendly and showed me to not only to a plentiful selection of what I needed, but also the Eco and PC aspects I would never have considered on my own. Surprise! Some people care about fur and feathers, who knew? Local owned and operated, I will doubtless be back many times and will recommend others to give them a try."”

“5 Star Review: "I've been going to Make Believe costumes over 14 years for rentals and sales. The staff is kind and hard-working with an eye on authenticity and comfort (thank goodness!). Marissa is a wiz with makeup. Smart and joyful, I love her sassy laugh. Tani is a styling maven. She knows just what accessory from which box or bag to bring your Marie Antoinette to life. Watch out for Ruth, though. The boss of the place, she'll crack you up with the way she talks with her hands. Always a pleasant exchange. Their prices are fantastic. A bargain, seriously. Even if their rental prices went up, their flappers and cowboys would still be under market value. A true Mom & Pop gem."”

“5 Star Yelp Review: "We've rented and bought numerous costumes and accessories here. Friendly people. good selection!"”

Thea S. - Yelp Reviewer

“Between my colleagues and myself, I’d estimate we’ve rented costumes from Make Believe, Inc. for over two hundred productions over the past decades. We do several fully produced shows during each school year, and consistently return to Make Believe because of their extensive (and ever-expanding) inventory, absolute reliability and outstanding staff. Tani is my personal Muse for Costume Design, and Ruth is my Guru. Marissa and Paige are always popping up with just the right piece to add to an outfit; everyone behind the counter is highly creative, experienced and collaborative, and they all have a great command of both the rental and sales inventory. I absolutely love working with Make Believe, and can’t wait for our next collaboration!”

“I have been using Make Believe Costume Rental for my school plays for over a decade. I keep coming back because of how creative and helpful they are in helping me to dress my actors and they are wonderful about adding the extra details that really creates a “look”. I have needed a lot of wacky animals and they have never disappointed me. I have a ton of fun working with everyone there. I recommend them to everyone.”

“Our school has worked with Make Believe for the past ten years. We love working with them because they can accommodate our parents and students with excellent customer service. Make Believe has brought their professional design quality and organization to our productions.”
