“Creative Costume Company has long been the gold standard for costuming in the tri-state area. When owners Susan Handler and Linda Carcaci began seeking a buyer for their inventory, we viewed this as a ‘match made in heaven."
- Ms. Yon Zweibon, Owner of Beyond Costumes
“We've gone back four years running to Creative Costume and have always been completely thrilled with the results. The garment quality is fantastic and the women who work there have a keen eye. They've often suggested something I wouldn't have thought of that turned out looking amazing, and they always want to help you have the complete look with all the accessories you'll need. It's the first place I'd recommend for anyone looking to get their Hallowe'en on in a serious way!"
- Creative Costume Company Customer
“They stress good quality fabrics and workmanship, and are fanatical about the upkeep of the costumes."
- Elizabeth Peek, Reporter for The New York Sun
“Carcaci and Handler are best known for theatrical period pieces—think Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI—but they can bring just about any idea to life."
- Christina Garofalo, Reporter for
Robb Report New York City Inside
“If you’re looking for something totally unique, let [Creative Costume Company's owners] sketch, design and create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece you’ll treasure long past Halloween."
- Claudia Saez-Fromm, Sr. VP/Real Estate Agent at TOWN Residential
Wow - this place is great. I went here after receiving a recommendation from a co-worker who said he has never seen anything that comes close to the authenticity of Creative Costume Company's period costumes. The owners fitted my gown, had a great, brand new (in the wrapper) wig for me, and even helped me pick out accessories and shoes to match. Exactly what I wanted - a cool period costume. Authentic and whimsical!"

“A photo of a costume you custom made for me about 3 years ago will run in this week's issue of ESPN the Magazine (January 23, 2014). To refresh your memory, I desired a Vatican Swiss Guard uniform that I saw in Rome alteredto be purple and gold to represent LSU (Louisiana State University). I have worn it to at least 5 big LSU events and it is always a show stopper. Thank you again for making such a fantastic garment that has given me much pleasure and enjoyment. Thank you!"
- Dr. Dean Sandifer, LSU Fanatic
