About Costumes Etc! We occupy the castle in the picture. Yep, it's real. You can visit the castle yourself just north of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. We love having visitors. We also love serving you with all the goodies you need for your fun ideas to make good memories and great times. We started out trying to put a little fun into hospital patient's lives back in 1975. We quickly realized that everyone could use a little more fun and branched into a full time costume shop. Then, as now, we are family owned and run. We believe the world can be a better place if we just play and laugh more, take care of our planet, and give to those less fortunate than ourselves.
