The Joker’s Wild, an A+ rated BBB company, now sells wigs, masks, and makeup for theater, television, clowning, and all special events and holidays. The company’s wide range of products, available in all sizes, can be shipped anywhere in the U.S. and to most of the world.
The global cosplay market, led by Japan and then the United States, is growing at over 17% annually, and it is expected to reach almost $25 billion by the end of the decade. The growing popularity of comic books, fantasy movies, animations, and video games has increased the demand for fictional superhero costumes in particular. People disguise themselves as their favorite character and participate in different cosplay events and even conventions – such as Anime Expo and Comic-Con. An increasing number of people also participate in plays, theatrical events, and private theme parties. In the United States, consumers spend over $3 billion every year on costumes for Haloween alone.
The shop guide’s suggested pairings include items that have proved to be especially popular over the years – from red beard wigs and shamrock accessories for St. Patricks’s day to red, white, and blue scarves and Martha Washington costumes for July 4. Halloween standards include hooded robes, facial prosthetics, meat cleavers, Jason coveralls, Bride Frankenstein, and all lengths, colors, and styles of capes.
The Joker’s Wild caters to customers who typically struggle to find costumes because of their body type. The shop carries a wide range of options for men and women of all ages, heights, and girths. Dressing rooms are available, eliminating the need for any guesswork. Moreover, all customers are attended to by staff who can guide them and offer suggestions and opinions as needed.
Typically, in order to stand out from the crowd, customers choose to accessorize. The Joker’s Wild maintains the largest accessories selection in New England – from belts, hats, wigs, and cosmetics to footwear and crowns.
One recent customer commented: “Awesome place. Friendly staff and service, fantastic selection of items. Looks small on the outside but much bigger on the inside with multiple large rooms filled with products ranging from small gag jokes to full costumes and holiday decor. Has something for everyone, definitely planning on shopping again.”
