That being said, come October, I avoid that place like the plague! It turns into a mad house with all the Halloween shoppers. It never fails, though, that late in October, I book a crazy job that requires a special kind of make up that I just don't have in my kit (because I'm a BEAUTY make up artist, believe it or not!).
Last October I had to run in there for a variety of blood and Rigid Collodion (to make scars) for this Maxim fashion shoot with UFC fighters.

And then, there was today... I set my alarm extra early thinking I would sneak in and sneak out before the Halloween shoppers got there. Boy was I wrong!
So, here is what I'm proposing... from here on out, I think that every October Cinema Secrets (and it's counter parts, Frends and Naimie's) should have two lines. One line for regular customers that come there on a weekly basis, and one line for customers that only come there once a year... Kind of like when you've reached Gold status on American Airlines and get to use the Business Class check in.
I have a similar idea for Starbucks on the weekends, but I won't even go into that right now...
