Situated in the shopping district on Robert Street in West St. Paul, Twin Cities Magic & Costume stocks a collection of tricks, makeup, and costumes that have enlivened parties, magic acts, and movies for the past 27 years. Knowledgeable professionals and industry insiders guide visitors through the forest of lifelike costumes and awe-inspiring light and fire effects, helping to create eerie costumes for Halloween parties or convincing getups for period plays and films. DVDs and instructional videos teach budding illusionists how to impress crowds with linking ring and coin tricks, and fog machines and strobe lights add a touch of Vegas glamour to magicians' sets. Twin Cities Magic & Costume puts its expertise to the test as the headquarters of the Zombie Pub Crawl, a festival of gore and horror brought to life with the selection of professional-grade makeup and more than 15,000 wigs.
