Mega Super Pop-up stores…

I looked around today and was inundated with SALE signs, 50% off signs, last chance sales signs, and I wondered, for just a split second, if we should join the pack.  Because I realized that if we did that, we’d have to pull out all of the stockings, petticoats, helmets, swords, laurel wreaths, jewelry, hats, all the accessories we add to our packaged costumes to make them all just a bit more special. “You get what you  pay for” is a very old adage, but still as true as ever.  We have never raised our prices before Halloween, so does it make sense to lower them before Halloween?  And after being in business since 1985, I just don’t think I’d want to do that, it’s not who we are, and I hope all of you that have been shopping with us for years now know that if anything, we’re able to be just a tad bit lower in our prices because we have no overhead, and, even though it’s new, we’re still the same little store with a big heart and a lot to offer…  And for all of our new customers, welcome to the family, hope you find what you need, call if you don’t, and have a Happy Halloween,  y’all!  And remember, if you’re here in San Diego, we’ll be delivering costumes and make-up right up to Halloween afternoon, and if you’re out of the neighborhood, we can figure out how to do some expedited shipping so you get your costume in time!

The new pin-up girl costumes by The Costume Shop are here!

After much design discussion, we have finally packaged our own Pin-up Girl costumes!  There are ten different styles, and they come in small, medium and large.  We’re finding a lot of women like corsets as part of their costume, and so we’ve put one in every design.  And since Day of the Dead is so popular this year, we’ve come up with two different colors and looks for Day of the Dead in our Pin-up costumes!  We have a size chart for all of them, and they’re ready to go.

For those of your who are still undecided, if you’re in the San Diego area, we’ll be delivering until Halloween afternoon, and if you’re out of town, we can make sure that you get it in time with expedited shipping.  Check out the website, there are dozens of costumes available, and call if there is something you’re looking for!  We’re still adding things every day!

We’re still here!

We’re still here!  The North Park store was too small, so we decided to open a  webstore!  We still have a full inventory!  We ship out Priority mail, you’ll get your costume in  1 to 3 days.  If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please call us at our number since 1985, 619-574-6201.  Happy Halloween!!!

Halloween is right around the corner!

How did the year fly by so fast?  Well, our first strictly online Halloween is here, and The Costume Shop is very excited!  This has been an amazing time for us, and we’re happy to bring new costumes to you!  We’re in the process of designing corset costumes, and they’ll be online in the next few weeks!  In the meantime, we still have tons of beautiful new costumes, especially the Leg Avenue Disney Princesses.

If you go through each costume page, you’ll notice that we’ve put our older styles on sale, so look for the red prices under the pictures!

Continue on with us, and we’ll keep bringing special costumes to you.

Also, look for our new zombie make-up kits!

The Costume Shop has added an Events Page to it’s new webstore!  This is our way of “displaying your  posters” for all of your shows, auditions, art shows, and special events!  Contact Pam with your event, opening date, gallery showing, give her all of the pertinent information, and it will be logged into the calendar.  If you click on the event, all of your information will be displayed, where people can buy tickets, where the venue is, what time to be there!

Hopefully this will help  the community to keep in touch!

We’d love to see that calendar be filled up!

We’ll be looking for your emails!
