About Us

If you want to learn more about us, you’re in the right place. Read to learn how we managed to grow our business so fast.
Humbug was founded in 1972. As the decades have passed, it has evolved from selling huaraches, peanut jeans, and waterbeds to a year round costume shop.

Being a lifelong New Orleanian, I knew the city would embrace a one stop costume shop. Over the last ten years, city wide costuming events have increased in frequency. This created a drive for me to expand our costume inventory with a variety of sizes and styles.

We carry a vast selection of pre-made costumes as well as do it yourself pieces including accessories, wigs, shoes, and theatrical quality makeup products. We cater to the customer that wants something unique and different. We aim to make each customer look unique by piecing together a one of a kind look that compliments your style and taste. Our stock includes options for both men and women in sizes small through 4xl. No matter the season or event, We can build a costume to bring your inner character to life.
