5 Star Review: "I've been going to Make Believe costumes over 14 years for rentals and sales. The staff is kind and hard-working with an eye on authenticity and comfort (thank goodness!). Marissa is a wiz with makeup. Smart and joyful, I love her sassy laugh. Tani is a styling maven. She knows just what accessory from which box or bag to bring your Marie Antoinette to life. Watch out for Ruth, though. The boss of the place, she'll crack you up with the way she talks with her hands. Always a pleasant exchange. Their prices are fantastic. A bargain, seriously. Even if their rental prices went up, their flappers and cowboys would still be under market value. A true Mom & Pop gem."
