Service– we’re bringing it back, baby! The good, old-fashioned kind where the person you’re dealing with wants to help you get your party started the minute you walk in our door.
Allow us to fan you down & peel you some grapes… better yet, bring in some fermented grapes & we’ll get your party started on the spot! We’ve also been known to dish out the champers to customers ourselves…

“Do what you do so well, they will want to see it again & bring their friends.” – Walt Disney
We have an extensive hire selection for adults (it’s our core business) plus a small range for kids
.Our hire range is curated online to inspire & simplify your selection process. If you come instore, you won’t be left to “roam the racks” dazed & confused as all costumes are neatly racked behind counter, with i-pads on counter for your convenience. Our crazy Costumiers know just the right questions to ask to help you select the perfect costume for your event & can have you in & out quickly or be as patient as saints, depending on your requirements.
We have a tailor on hand Thursdays & Saturdays for basic alterations to ensure your costume fits perfectly, plus a “Hassle Free Hire” courier service which you can take advantage of for delivery, collection or both.
Finally, you can rest assured all costumes are cleaned & maintained to the highest standard. Our hire costumes are thoroughly washed on premises or dry-cleaned & our wigs are hand-washed & restyled, after EVERY use.
When you hire from us, it’s not like buying costumes online – you’re generally getting a significantly better quality costume for the money, it arrives on time, you’re more likely to be wearing a one-off original & you know you look fantastic in it before you pay!
A note on Kids Hire: We offer a small range of kids hire costumes primarily as a service to the time-stressed parents of Sydney. With the proliferation of cheap & cheerful kids costumes at places like Big W, we’ve elected to stock ONLY those quality pieces that are difficult or impossible to get online.
Instore, we currently stock the following categories, which are often called upon by school curriculums:
We also have a small range of:
PLUS offer a cost effective alternative to Formal Hire for boys.
When Book Week rolls around in August, we’ll be re-ranging quality characters as a cost effective alternative to purchase. Of course, if you’re looking to purchase for kids, we can help you there anytime, either with our instore/online sales range, or by sourcing for you direct.
Looking for something you won’t find in the discount stores?
We’re in the process of building our full costume sales range (update April ’16: stay tuned for exciting news!)
In the meantime, our accessories range is top quality only, at competitive prices. We style you top to toe including accessories for our hire fee as listed, however some things you just fall in love with & have to call your own. Others are personal or single use items that really help complete your look. Or perhaps you don’t want to go all out with a full costume & just need the perfect accessory to get on theme?
From spikey mullets & fake moustaches, to rainbow unicorn wigs & Venetian import masquerade masks with Swarovski crystals – if it’s on our website, it’s in stock & available to purchase (unless otherwise stated), either directly instore OR online with next day Express Post delivery Australia wide OR same day courier to the greater Sydney metro area.
If we don’t have what you need, we won’t send you away empty handed – we’ll do our best to either source it for you ourselves, or direct you to another business who does. It’s all part of the service!
We have drop-ship relationships with wholesalers across Australia & can often deliver next day. Talk to us re discounts on bulk requests.
If it’s a custom make you’re after, we don’t currently have scope to do this onsite however we do have talented contacts overseas with fast turnarounds & are happy to quote on your brief.
With a Fancy That! costume, you’ve already got icing on your cake – think of make-up & special FX as the delicious cherry!

Whether it’s basic glamour make-up to accompany your Hollywood Diva costume, some simple cuts & bruises, or a fully-fledged character creation – Dial-a-Style will find you the right artist for the job.
It’s a handy app based service – think of them as your “Uber” of custom costume make-up & special FX! It’s super easy too.

If you’re not app savvy, you can request a booking from their website, or call them on 1300 163 254 (business hours).
