Picking your Halloween costume

Pierre's Costumes has been in business since 1943, and is located at 3rd and Race Streets in Old City, Philadelphia - right under the Ben Franklin Bridge.They provide costumes for stage shows, TV, movies - and of course, great costumes for Halloween.

Owner Rich Williamson says you could rent a profesionally made, one-of-a-kind costume for about the same price you'd pay to buy a novelty costume - once you figure in makeup and accessories.

Rentals start at 50 dollar. There is no extra charge for renting early. In fact, there's a discount because you beat the last-minute rush.

Pierre's also makes original costumes for promotions, sports mascots, even mall Santas.

Pierre's is open Monday through Saturday beginning at 10am. There are evening hours as Halloween approaches.
