Just bend the conduit at the store with their bender.
While they may ask what you're doing, at most big box stores there won't be any employees by to ask. That's one advantage.
Don't bend it at a right angle. Make the bend almost a right angle so the weight of the light fixture pulls it to a right angle.
Rub the conduit down really well with fine steel wool and paint it for best appearance.
