In 2004 Faten Hodroge followed her dreams and founded Oya Costumes after a successful career in international finance and a few years as a full time Mom. From its humble start in Montreal, Canada Oya Costumes has rapidly grown its sales yearly and has expanded exponentially as a result. In 2008, Oya Costumes moved its Montreal operation to commercial lofts overlooking Canal Lachine at 4710 St-Ambroise to better serve our growing customer base. In addition, US clients are also being served through our warehouse operation in Champlain, NY.
We‘re constantly on the lookout for the latest offerings and new trends that excite the imagination so that every child and adult can bring to life a disguise they have been dreaming of. This year we are adding 1500 new costume designs and expanding our offerings of plus size costumes, mascot and animal costumes, pet costumes and basically lots more of everything! We continue to increase our selection of wigs, hat, make-up, weapons purses, stocking and shoes so you can personalize your disguise and make your own unique statement and show off your creativity and your unique style.
Even though we now carry thousands of costume designs, we still carefully inspect every costume so that we can offer the best available products and value. Of course we always aim to provide you the best shopping experience on the web and make your purchase as smooth as possible. We strive to ship your orders within a day of receiving it and get it to you on time.

Did you Know...
And what is in the name of Oya? Oya Costumes is named after Oya the fearless and strong African Goddess of storm and winds. Oya is the only God who dares to accompanies spirits to the netherworld because of her great inner strength. Oh, and did we mention that Oya loves to dance? Halloween originated with the Celts more than 2000 years ago in a society that blurred the boundaries between the world of the living and after life on the 31 October, Oya's strength, fearlessness and love of dance makes her a perfect Halloween Goddess.
