Laurie Sluchinksi is the Owner of Boo La La (previously Carol's Costume Corner) and took over the 25 year old business in 2005.

Having always been fond of playing dress-up as a child, Sluchinski graduated university with a degree in women's studies before heading to Montreal for fashion school. While she enjoyed that scene, it wasn't until she attended a costume boot camp back in Vancouver that she really fell into her niche. And the rest is history!

Chris Bolton is the Manager of Boo La La (previously Carol's Costume Corner) and also happens to be the unstoppable entertainer extraordinaire, known to many as 'Conni Smudge'.

The Unstoppable Conni Smudge is a past Entertainer of the Year, Miss Odyssey 2006/2007, Wonderlust Queen #1 and Mother to the House of Opulence. Wowing crowds with her over the top interpretations is still one of Mz. Smudge's biggest thrills. Performing for the masses all over this great planet is her finest achievement. After finally finding her niche Conni/Chris is now Manager at Large for the best Costume house in Canada! Boo La La in North Vancouver is feeding this performer's creative spirit and the customers love it.
