Coming into Zeezo's is a truly one of a kind experience. You have a selection of thousands of costumes, a makeup counter stocked with Ben Nye, Mehron, and Kryolan, hundreds of wigs in every color you can imagine, a magic area staffed with a real magician, and a full rental line of costumes! Knick knacks, décor, and novelty items make up the rest of our inventory.
But, how did all of this start?
Zeezo's first opened our doors in 1974. The store's namesake, Zeezo the Clown, was the original owner and operator of the business. Zeezo's started as a novelty and magic shop and expanded into all things costuming over the years. For a brief period of time, Zeezo's was a franchise, but our Colorado Springs, CO location is the only remaining store front.
The store came into current ownership in 1993 when it was purchased by Mark Modeer, who has worked in the store since the 1980s. Mark and his family operate the store along with a small selection of performers, makeup artists, magicians, and all around weirdos who are experts in the wide range of merchandise that Zeezo's carries.
Currently, Zeezo's operates year round and occupies a 21,000 square foot, three story historic building in downtown Colorado Springs, CO.
