Our Story

We love to dress up, and judging by annual costume sales, you do too. Hundreds of millions of costumes are sold annually in the US. Most of these costumes are only used once. We saw a chance to create a better alternative to this endless cycle of waste.

We built this marketplace for the costume lovers, the cosplayers, the nerds, and the misfits who know their truest self is best expressed from behind a mask.

Chrysalis was created to do more than sell costumes. Our goal is to positively transform society. We are rebuilding American industry, sponsoring effective charities, and saving people money with our environmentally friendly, second hand costumes.
