Absolutely wonderful customer service! Went there right at 6 when they were supposed to close. Bummed out we turned around but the owner came out asked where we’re going? We said we thought you were closed cause it’s six. He said oh forget that its just a sign and come on in. He immediately asked what we needed and went straight to the racks to help us find it right then. He had several items in sstock that no other stores in Fort Collins had. He found the perfect item for me, let me try it on and kept my husband and four kids entertained. Love the new location and the great parking!! If you need it he’s got it or he’ll find it! He said he likes a challenge! Being a Fort Collins native we appreciate the service expertise and going “the extra mile” when he did not have to! Why go anywhere else?!? We won’t!! Thank You!

Immediately welcoming, they took the time to show us everything we needed and gave us tutorials on how to do what we were after! We were so engaged and amazed at how reasonable the prices were compared to prosthetics and application products online. I can’t wait to try out the escape room and spend more time getting quality cosplays together through the years with their help! Thanks so much!

Best costume shop on this side of Colorado! I use them for all my cosplay shenanigans. Their special effects make-up is high quality and the staff are so helpful if you have no idea how to use it! They are also knowledgeable enough to help you out if you are looking for a particular look and are not sure what paint/powder/etc will accomplish the effect. Their wigs are also great quality and are ADJUSTABLE (WHAT?!). My favorite thing about it is you can use the sampler special effects make-up so you know exactly what you’re getting (bye bye ebay xP….). If you need items for cosplay, this is the place to go in Northern Colorado 🙂 ♥

Our new funniest store to go to in Fort Collins. In fact, we’ve been there so many times over the last few weeks since first discovering them that we’ll have to look for reasons to go back again! Why? Because the staff is friendly, totally willing to help you explore ideas, whether that’s a costume or make-up or wigs, and so on. They love what they do and it shows — from Katie, the owner, to Eric? (who, admittedly looks a bit freakish in his Manson garb but jumps right in there to help) to Chantalle (who knows everything about professional make-up, glitter, latex, you name it (even offering free classes upstairs every now and then). I really appreciate how even when they have boxes and boxes of new merchandise to unload, you don’t feel like you are putting them out as they make you their priority. Actually, I’d say they love to help. Their enthusiasm to explore ideas rubs off on you. Their creativity and willingness to find the right application in make-up for an ice queen or whatever is especially appreciated making the whole xp that much more fun. You even get to play with the products! TLOTP has every kind of costume you can think of…and this just during an off season! Funnily enough, I’m not really in Halloween per se myself but love to be expressive and creative — after a visit here engaging the staff on various ideas you can’t help but feel those creative juices bubbling to the surface. I’ve been to other costume type stores where the customer service is lacking and you almost resent buying anything there — you won’t here, guaranteed. Next time you want to go to a Comic-Con, Santa Con or Zombie Crawl, etc, or are just looking for ideas for a party or doing a play, give them a go! You’ll be glad you did and you’ll likely have fun in the process too! While they are not always there at the front when you come in, don’t let that dissuade you. Engage them and they will help you realize your vision — all at a reasonable price for the quality, especially their broad range of professional make-up offered, all of it allowing the skin to breathe and easy to clean off (not like that nasty oily/greasy stuff you get elsewhere) and they even include hypo-allergenic products for those with sensitive skin.

This is honestly the best of the best when it comes to costumes and great makeup. They may be a little pricey, but you pay for quality. The moment you enter Life of the Party you feel as if you are in another world, and another place, one that is filled with wonder and is less stressful or complicated than the one in which you inhabit. Whether you are looking for a cheap costume to wear to a party, or you are looking to create a full character, this place has everything for you. Do you want to be a vampire? Well they have the teeth you need, the fake blood, the makeup (Ben Nye Death Wheel…best makeup for those of you that want that subtle Interview With The Vampire style Vampire), and they will also have the accessories you need to really bring your character to life(Including those wonderful vampire eyes. That’s right, they carry fantastic color contacts)…Oh and did I mention they have the best wigs? Party wigs, bad quality costume wigs, good quality wigs. They have everything. Their wigs are of the highest quality and are ready for styling, or for just simple wear. All employees are nice, and just cannot wait to help you become the creature you want to become;and they really know their stuff! I have been to many places and have asked many people for certain products only to be faced with a “Hmm, I’m not really sure if we have that” or “I don’t really know what would be the best option”. But not here. When I was looking for makeup for my vampire, the lady at the counter knew exactly what I needed and boy was I pleased. I was also very happy when I learned that my makeup wheel was not that much money. Making my character wonderful, and affordable. (I would have bought fangs, but they didn’t have the exact style that I wanted…same brand, just different style). Whatever costuming, hair, or makeup need you have I would always recommend to head over to Life of the Party. You aren’t going to get quality anywhere else.
  
 
Leslie 5stars 2014                                                                                                                                                                          This store is the real deal.Their makeup is the good stuff and now that I’ve found it I won’t go anywhere else. The owners are so passionate about what they sell and Chris has a rich background in special effects makeup. They have behind-the-counter samples that they work with to show you exactly how to apply the makeup and what it feels, looks like, etc. The costumes are top notch as well. This is the only place to go if you’re as serious about quality as I am!

The staff is always wonderful and warm and the selection of makeup is stellar beating all the prices I found online and through amazon on top of everyone being knowledgeable about all the products in the store. I love this shop! it is truly a Fort Collins staple worth checking out if you have the chance.

I caught them as they were closing up, but the owners let me in and helped find some things for Denver Comic Con. They even took the time to explain some of their costume makeup. They were both super friendly, very knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful.
