Costume Shop - Boise's Perfect Disguise

A salute to the Costume Shop today. Technically, it's in Garden City - which is surrounded by Boise, and people in Garden City have "Boise" for their mailing address. "Star" is the woman who opened, owned and ran the Costume Shop for as long as I can remember, even back when the shop was in the 8th Street Marketplace. She recently sold it to an employee. A great place for little kid dress-up gear, and loads of grown-up disguise and party supplies, although the sign and window right now don't look very kid-friendly.


  1. I love the way DISPLAY board are displayed on streets...
    Very artistic.

  2. Wow, I'm going to love that shop! It'll be like being a kid again, playing dress up with my mom's clothes and jewelry.

    We have no such place here in Manila — costume parties are not popular here, and the few that happen are usually for high society, who can afford to have their own costumes made. I've discovered though, that theater companies are willing to rent out their costumes. Nice to know, if I ever get invited to one. :)


Thanks for stopping by!
