About Planetcostume

Planetcostume, Planetsanta and affiliated online stores were established in 1997 as an extension of several large manufacturing and retail costume companies which had been established in 1876 to 1943.

The owners of those companies saw a change in the way that consumers were buying their costumes and Santa suits. They decided to start a new company to meet those new types of needs and to better meet the rapid paced 

internet environment. That new company was Planetcostume which also runs and owns Planetsanta and other sites.  

Planetcostume is located in two separate locations in the greater Philadelphia area.  Each of the two locations is over 10,000 square feet, and has warehousing, manufacturing, offices, and design facilities in the building.  Planetcostume is involved in creating some very unique items for the Christmas and costume industries.

In addition to retailing its' products over the internet, Planetcostume wholesales its' products to retailers and other internet dealers around the world. For that reason, you may sometimes see the same product that was created by Planetcostume being sold by another company.

Many of the products sold by Planetcostume are used by professional performers, theatrical productions, national theatre tours, school & college theatres, motion pictures, advertising

agencies, party planners, production companies, professional sports teams, print & TV commercials, major corporations, televised parades, theme parks, and costume shops throughout the world.

Buy from a specialty manufacturer who makes Santa suits for National Parades, Film, Department stores, celebrity events, and TV.

Due to the fact that Planetcostume is owned by people who have been in the costume industry for over a century, you can understand how they can source unique and specialized items that other companies don’t even know about.

Planetsanta.com and Planetcostume.com allows consumers to directly order Santa & costume related products around the world, and around the clock. The enormous stock that is maintained is really hard to imagine. For example, Planetcostume is one of the largest producers of santa wigs & beards, as well as Santa boots in the USA!  We work with our factories to produce unique costumes, and quality offerings.

Often Planetcostume will clean out the distributors when they think that a product is good, thereby becoming the only source with a proper level of inventory. Planetcostume does not just keep a couple of items on hand and consider itself ready for business.

If you are buying from Planetcostume, you can be assured that you are working with one of the largest internet costume retailers in the world!

Planetcostume has well over 1,000,000 items in stock to choose from, making it by far the largest shop of its' kind in the US, and one of the largest on the internet.
