May Customer Spotlight

We're marching into May as our customers are getting ready for some great events throughout the city! With the GA Renaissance Festival in full swing we've enjoyed helping our customers with their fairy, barbarian, and pirate looks. One of our featured customers, Chrissie Forlie, created a phenomenal Viking costume that looks straight out of Norse mythology! The creativity of our makeup artists like Chrissie pushes us to branch out and try new lines of product. The staff at Costumes, ETC are excited to share a new partnership with the local makeup brand Castle Cosmetix, read on to find out more about Ciara and her phenomenal line of makeup products! This week we also wanted to shout out one of our longtime customers, Stepp Stewart, as he prepares to open his stage in June with a Motown tribute. We can't wait to see what's in store for our customers next! 


Ciara Blakey - Castle Cosmetix

Ciara is a local artist that took a leap into becoming a cosmetics brand. Her line of body paint includes amazing UV options for all those artists wanting to add some glow to their work. Luxury lip colors and glosses in fun applicators as well as cream to matte Eye Jamz are also fun offerings within her line. We are excited to carry Ciara's product at Costumes, ETC and support local creative folks reaching for their dreams. Be sure to stop in and check out her line and see all the new product for 2021.
