Costume shops should be places you want to visit all the time, not just when holidays or pop culture events roll around. That's just what happens at Mardi Gras, where aisles filled with costumes and accessories inspire you to find new ways to bring the costume love into your everyday existence. Whether your kid needs to dress up for a school project or you want to bring a little spice to your love life, Mardi Gras gives you plenty of choices. Theater geeks delight in the makeup offerings, but there's no reason you can't have a little fun with fake blood and mime foundation, too. Maybe you've missed some opportunities to bring more costumes into your life, but Mardi Gras will cheerfully help you set that right.
