With men’s, women’s, and kids’ vintage costumes, this curious cross between a futuristic boudoir and the coat check at Studio 54 is sure to satiate the needs of any partygoer. Complete with wigs, masks and feather boas for all occasions, the room opens just in time for all your Halloween and fabulous pageantry needs. Celebrate the Summer of ‘69, rock out in Gangnam style, or pay homage to ‘80s glamour with pieces from the year-round Cosmic Costume Room.
MEEPS also invites the public to see the new Halloween storefront window, erected in partnership with Professor Mikki Taylor of Howard University’s Visual Merchandising students, who designed and brought to life a vision of bubble, bubble, toil and trouble.
Please join us October 16 for an evening of Dia de los Muertos-themed libation and celebration as we celebrate our Cosmic Costume Room in style.
