Send us pictures of the costume(s) that you wish to consign via email at We will evaluate each costume, and determine if it has potential to sell. Please ensure that the photos accurately reflect the current state of the costume.
We only accept high-end, competitive level costumes. No recreational or catalogue costumes will be accepted. As an Ontario based company, we currently only accept costumes from within Canada.

Step Two:
Inspect your costume thoroughly. Please check for tears, holes, excessive loss of rhinestones, etc. These costumes will not be accepted for consignment.
All costumes must be cleaned before being sent in. Costumes that require cleaning due to stains, deodorant marks, odours etc., will be charged a cleaning fee of $10.00.

  • Your name
  • Song title of the costume

Costumes must be shipped to Second Act directly. Upon receiving the costumes, we will professionally photograph each one and feature it on our website and social platforms.
