Our costume




Here you will find answers to questions that are repeatedly asked of us. Perhaps you will also find information on your current concern.


Do I have a selection option on all costumes?

We grant a choice for almost all costumes. Excluded from this are all costumes that are worn on the body such as pants, shirts, sweaters, dresses, coats and shoes, etc. receive a selection. Costumes that decorate this outfit, i.e. jewelry, hats, effects and glasses, as well as costumes that require cleaning/laundering after each fitting, such as socks, underwear, etc., on the other hand, do not have a selection.

How long can costumes be rented for?

We’re happy to advise you on a case-by-case basis. Please send your request to info@theaterkunst.de and we will contact you to discuss details.

Do I pay the rent and deposit for costumes directly upon pick up?

There are different possibilities of payment. Payment modalities will be discussed individually when you place your order.

Where do I return costumes?

Costumes must be returned to our central return location on Eisenzahnstraße only (Eisenzahnstraße 43-44, 10709 Berlin), even if you have rented from a different location.

May I make adjustment to the costumes?

Borrowed costumes must be returned to Theaterkunst in undamaged condition. If adjustments are necessary, you must make them in such a way that the costume can be subsequently returned to its original condition. Please coordinate any such adjustments with us in advance.

May I use artificial blood on a costume?

If you wish to work with artificial blood, we ask that you coordinate this in advance with our staff. In addition, a color test should be carried out on an inconspicuous spot on the costume to ensure that the artificial blood comes out during cleaning. If permanent damage or partial damage occurs as a result of such action, the customer will be charged for special cleaning or must replace the costume.

May I give a costume patina?

Without prior consultation, Theaterkunst costumes may not be given patina.

Can I rent costumes as a private individual?

Unfortunately, we only rent costumes to stylists or costume designers who need the costumes for work purposes.
