Downtown Biz Spotlight: Evangeline’s Costume Mansion

Frankie Wenson

Pretending is their reality!

Just in time for Halloween, if you haven’t stepped foot into Evangeline’s Costume Mansion at the Old Sacramento Waterfront then you are missing out on year-round imagination. Since 1974 the whimsical 3 floor store has resided in two historical buildings dating back to the 19th century called the Lady Adams Building and Howard House. Evangeline’s Costume Mansion is more than just a regular costume shop, they are three floor filled top to bottom with an extensive supply of themed apparel and novelty gifts for you to channel all of your different personalities whenever you feel like it. This labyrinth of goods has themed rooms to make it convenient to find exactly what you’re looking for whether it’s medieval, western, SciFi and so much more!

If you have already found your Halloween costume for this year but are still looking for something spooky and fun to do then you can participate in their popular Murders & Mayhem scavenger hunt where you get to travel through all of the different rooms and find plaques and read up on infamous murders from the past and learn about the mayhem that occurred during their reigns of terror.

There’s nothing you can’t find at Evangeline’s Costume Mansion. Come, stay awhile and let your imaginations get away from you all year long…they are DYING to see you!
