Remember that we do deliveries!

We’re getting closer to the day!  Make sure you have all of your Halloween accessories and costume pieces.   There is still time to ship your items to you priority mail, and if you’re late, we can deliver within San Diego city limits.  But don’t wait too much longer!  Our delivery schedules are fast filling up!

Halloween is upon again!!!!

It’s time to get ready for Halloween!  We have ten days left in the month, and costumes and make-up kits have been flying out of our warehouse!  Remember to call us if you’re looking for something that you don’t see in our webstore!  We may have something that hasn’t made it online, or one left of an item!  All costumes are shipped the same day, and we ship priority mail, so you’ll have it between one and three days!  And, if for some reason you’re still looking later on in the month, we still do deliveries if you’re in San Diego!  We stop deliveries on the 30th, so make sure you get your orders in.  If you are late, make sure you call us and we’ll do our best to fulfill that order!  Happy Halloween!!!

Last minute shoppers!!!

We just want you to know that our stock is still great, and that we’re offering delivery service all week, twice a day.  We’ll be delivering in the morning and in the evening, after business hours.  If you’re out of the delivery range, we’d be happy to meet you at mid-way point!

If you have any questions on your costume or costume needs, please call us any time from 10 to 7!

Happy Halloween!

Another Halloween is upon us!

Well, here we are!  We’re halfway through the month, and it seems as though it’s snuck up on all of us!  New items are on the website, our Day of the Dead make-up kits are back up, the zombie kits are back, and we’ve update a lot of the sizes.

We can indeed deliver if necessary, but it will be smarter if we ship priority to you.  We can guarantee that you’ll get your items in a very timely fashion!  And you’ll have the tracking number to check the progress!

We are still custom making masks and Day of the Dead headpieces, and the make-up artist can put together make-up kits for you, even if you don’t see the make-up online.  We’re still trying to work that out with all the dealers, but we have make-up and it’s ready to go!

Happy 2014  Halloween!



It’s been an amazing season for us!

It’s been an amazing season for us!  Our Halloween online has been great! We miss seeing all of your faces, but our new site has served us well.  And since we did so many deliveries, we were able to see a lot of our old friends, and make a lot of new ones!

Just to let you know, we’ll be available to deliver costumes and make-up for weekend parties through Sunday afternoon!   And we’ll be rolling out our Costume Shop Christmas costumes at the end of the month, as well as all the masks we make for New Year’s Eve.

We’re looking ahead at this new year with even more enthusiasm!  Hope you go along for the ride with us!

Just a few days left!

We still have plenty of costumes, and there’s time left to have it shipped to you, or we’ll deliver it to you if you’re in the San Diego area.  Just specify during checkout that you need it delivered, and where you need it delivered.   If we’re so very busy with deliveries, then let’s all try and meet in a common area and you’ll receive your costume!  Thank you for shopping with us!! This is going to be a GREAT Halloween!!!

If the costume is for Halloween,  we’ll ship it today priority, and you’ll have it no later than Wednesday!

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!
