prosthetic adhesive and paint/make up

Anybody out there know where in Alberta, specifically Edmonton, that one can purchase Pros-Aide and good make up and/or paints for latex prosthetics?

I find that as I sweat from wearing prosthetics that they tend to just slide right off of my face. I've only ever been able to find spirit gum, which is terrible or liquid latex, which just seems to sweat right off when used as a face adhesive for setting prosthetics.

I would like to do a lord of darkness style devil costume that will require very good adhesive for the latex appliances and some good face/body paint for the red skin.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

Thanks I have checked them out and they do have some good products. :cool:
I thought I would do a follow up to this thread for anyone else in the Edmonton, Alberta area who may have been curious where to buy good make up, etc.

I discovered a place called "The Theatre Garage" in Edmonton. I purchased some good quality make up, translucent powder and setting/sealer spray from Ben Nye, some Pros Aide adhesive and Pros Aide remover as well as a pair of custom fit fangs.

All the products were good quality and it made a big difference in how good the make up looked and the powder and setting spray made a big difference in how durable it made the make up. It held up well to sweat, light rain and even to a certain degree it made it harder to rub off!

I had not used such good quality products as these before. I will always use high quality make up supplies from this day forth(actually from this Halloween)
