Services We Offer
Helping bring your work to life
The TDF Costume Collection Rental Program offers over 85,000 pieces for rental to all types of film, television, digital media, art, dance, theatre and cultural productions.
Non-profit organizations receive deeply discounted prices. We just need a copy of your IRS paperwork to qualify.
We are dedicated in our mission to support non-profits and artistic creation; because of this, we cannot rent to individuals or businesses wanting to use costumes for wear by individuals at festive events or at Halloween.
Not sure if your project qualifies? Contact us.
Select this option if you want to pull costumes on your own without additional help from our staff.
Can’t decide? Do you want to take a selection of costumes before making a final decision for a small fee? Please just tell us at the time of checkout that you want to use this option.
Would you like to work in the warehouse with one of our expert designers? You can hire our staff to pull with you for a small hourly fee. Call or email us for information and availability.
Can’t make it to the warehouse to view garments? We can photograph options for you for a small hourly fee. We suggest you email or call to get an idea of inventory.
Your Design Service:
Are you working on a production where you have a specific vision or just need to rent some of the costumes? You provide us the costume plot, sizing and research for your design, and we will pull costumes for you. There is an additional fee for this service.
We will even photograph the choices before sending them to you. Email for more info or make this selection when you start a rental and we will contact you.
Show Plot Service:
Need costumes for the entire show? We only need accurate measurements from you and we have instructions and measurement sheets to help!
There is an additional fee for this service. While we pull as close to size as possible, some slight alterations or repairs may be needed.
Email or call us for more info.

What is Final Checkout?
If you wish to take costumes with you when you leave, items must be fully selected and ready for our staff to inventory by the Final Checkout time.
TDF Costume Collection is conveniently located at the historic Kaufman Astoria Studios, New York’s premier film and television production campus.
All Visitors Enter Through the Main Studio Gate unless you have a large drop-off. Enter at 35th Avenue and 36th Street through the studio gate (next to the Museum of the Moving Image and Sac's Place). You will receive a studio pass from the guard gate, which must be worn at all times while on the campus. There is no parking on the campus but street parking is available in the neighborhood.
If you have a large return or donation, you may use the freight entrance located on 35th Street between 34th and 35th Avenues. This freight entrance is often busy, so you may need to wait. Also, we recommend that when making large deliveries you have a person stay with your vehicle since someone may ask you to move the car quickly. They generally will allow for a quick drop off if someone waits with the car.
The approximate address for the freight is 34-35 35th Street, Astoria, NY 11106
