Kostomarov began skating at the age of nine and a coach put him in ice dancing at eleven. He won the 1996 World Juniors Championships with Ekaterina Davydova. Kostomarov began competing with Tatiana Navka during the 1998–99 season. They were coached by Natalia Linichuk. They won the bronze medal at the Russian Championships and were sent to the World Championships in their first season together, placing 12th. Linichuk then dissolved the team and paired Kostomarov with Anna Semenovich. He competed with Semenovich during the 1999-2000 season. In mid-2000, Kostomarov called Navka and asked to skate with her again. They were coached by Alexander Zhulin in New Jersey.
