WARNER ROBINS -- Reality television star Alana Honey Boo Boo Thompson visited Warner Robins with her family Wednesday to film an episode about buying her Halloween costume.
Marion Bradley, owner of The Costume Shop at 1840 Watson Blvd., said Authentic Entertainment contacted her about coming to her store after seeing it on the Internet and receiving a suggestion from Alanas family.
It was fun and crazy, Bradley said after the film crew for TLCs Here Comes Honey Boo Boo left.
She and her employees were under strict orders to tell no one of the stars visit prior to the taping.
A few lucky customers got to see the filming in progress but were not allowed to take pictures or video.
There was also a bodyguard with the family in case there was a crowd, Bradley said.
They were very nice and very funny, she said of the family, who is from McIntyre.
Because of the set-up of the cameras in the store, Bradley and her employees werent able to do much hands-on helping with the costumes. They mostly found the costumes when asked about a specific one.
The crew and family were there from 5:30-9 p.m. to set up and try on costumes.
The episode is scheduled to air in January.
Bradley said the girls, including 7-year-old Alana, tried on at least a half dozen costumes apiece.
They were trying on a lot of different costumes, she said.
Although Bradley isnt allowed to say what costume was ultimately picked for Alana to wear on Halloween, she said Honey Boo Boo did buy a costume.
Its supposed to be a surprise, she said.
