Best Birthplace of Your Next Wild Costume 

Fabric Outlet

San Franciscans take costumes very seriously. We need a banana costume in breathable fabrics for Bay to Breakers, a playa-ready leather bikini for Burning Man, and we're already working on our fully articulated Xenomorph suit for next year's inaugural Silicon Valley Comic Con. Family-owned Fabric Outlet crams racks upon racks of fabrics, from the sublime to the strange, into a subterranean dungeon bursting with sartorial possibilities. The freewheeling Fabric Outlet may not have the cachet of Britex Fabrics downtown, but its huge selection and reasonable prices make it a required stop for everyone from the home sewer making a cute shift dress to the most ambitious cosplayer.
