I just went to the shop's new location. I've been going to The Costume Shop for over ten years. The new location in North Park is bright and cheery and much more convenient.
They have a very good stock of sale costumes, and as always, they give the best makeup advice around. They can always tell you how to achieve a certain effect in make-up, and will place a special order to get anything you might need.
I've also had help in costuming shows. They don't rent on a daily basis anymore, but rent out seasonal costumes, and they also rent out show costumes. This is a service that is greatly needed here in town!
I'm glad they're still around!
