2020 Grand | 816-221-8600
They followed you for blocks before you were able to duck into this storefront on Grand. The window display suggests witches and strippers plotting an October surprise. Inside the door, a dozen pairs of white-gloved cartoon hands — a rack of disembodied Mickey Mouse parts — waits to be repurposed in this non-animated dimension. Gladiator sandals, pirate garb and wigs enough for 1,000 Cher impersonators. A voice is heard: "Hi! Can I help you?" The people working at this costume shop are disguised as midtown hipsters, but their friendliness gives away their game. They're here to assist as you outfit yourself as someone else. Upstairs are the rentals (for those of you not being chased and able to return). Buy a plastic sword while you're at it — it goes with most outfits and might come in handy in the unlikely event that your disguise is seen through.
