About The Costume Trunk


For over three decades, The Costume Trunk has provided the finest theatrical, masquerade, and specialty costumes in the business.

Authentic historical patterns, highest quality fabrics, and superb workmanship make each piece a work of art.

Many of our costumes have been hand tailored by master craftsman, Benjamin Morelli. Perhaps you've seen Mr. Morelli's work in the original Broadway production of "Phantom of the Opera" (including the Phantom's magnificent tailcoat). His work can currently be seen in the smash Broadway hit, "Thoroughly Modern Millie". Past clients include Luciano Pavarotti, Richard Harris, Jane Fonda, Lou Rawls, The Taj Mahal Casino, Royal Lippazan Stallion Show, Ringling Brothers Circus, etc.

The costumes shown on this site are only a small sampling of our stock and our capabilities. We invite your inquiries concerning your costuming needs.
