About Us

Make It Up Costumes formerly Mallatt's Costumes, has a new look!  After being in the costume business for over 90 years the Mallatt's Costume wand was passed onto a former employee of 25 years in 2017.  Susannah's vision is to keep access to quality stage makeup, costumes, masks, wigs & accessories available locally for the greater Madison, WI area and online community.  
Make It Up Costumes offers classic and quirky costumes, accessories and stage makeup.  We are your one-stop shop for top quality and reasonably priced products with personality.  Our retail shop is open to the public year round.  Look no further we are the place to go for stage makeup, SFX makeup, wigs, hats, masks, costumes, and accessories from over 50+ suppliers including Ben Nye, Mehron, Kryolan and Graftobian.  Not looking to buy, we carry over 500 rental costumes from Flappers to Santa Suits and so much more.  Rental are available locally.
We are always exploring the market, keeping up on the ever changing styles and designs to fit our customer needs. We will go the extra mile to locate hard to find theatrical items.
