The Costume Shoppe
Ryan Schoel, Owner
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
How long has the shop been open? (We’ve been open) over 20 years.
What’s your specialty? Anything from dressing up both for purchase and rental costumes, accessories and now cosplay supplies (as well as) heat styleable wigs.
What are some of the best-selling products/lines you carry? Epic Cosplay Wigs, Rockstar Wigs & Roackalash, and what I call the blue chip suppliers, Rubies, Forum, Disguise and California Costumes, and Leg Avenue.
What are some popular themes you’ve been seeing this year? Decades; ’20s, ’50s, ’70s and ’80s.
What do you expect will be popular the rest of this year and into next year? More of the decades and I would say blood and gore will have a larger influence this Halloween.
