About Us

Our Mission

We exist to bring joy and whimsy to people. Wacky Dancer costumes are fun, harmless, and happy. They let people spread cheer, break down social barriers, and make the world a better place.

Our History

Wacky Dancers started out as a Halloween costume. After showing it off at a couple parties, and getting an incredible response, I decided to show it off some more. Trick or treating was a blast.

But the fun didn’t stop on Halloween. I was feeling bad one day and decided to take it out to the street for a couple minutes. I could see people smiling, and one guy even snapped a photo as he drove by.

I brought it to a garage sale:

I made a couple more and let the neighbor kids play with them.

Eventually, we realized that this should be a thing. We wanted to make people happy with these costumes, and we wanted to share them with the rest of the world. They are easily recognized, they are cheerful, they are silly, and they are fun.

We are based in Madison, WI, and we manufacture out of our home. The costumes are made by hand with love and expertise. We want you to be happy with your purchase and feel comfortable running around (slowly and carefully; these are difficult to run in) and spreading smiles.
