Who We Are

Who We Are

Fancy That! Costumes is the best quality, best organised costume emporium in Sydney, with the best & friendliest customer service – just ask our customers! We have a single, full service bricks & mortar store in Crows Nest, Sydney for costume hire & sales, plus spread the costume love across the country with sales items shipping Australia-wide.

OUR MISSION is to encourage people – particularly adults – to PLAY more – to better connect with themselves & each other & make the world a happier place!

We opened in 1987 after 2 women in the costume department of TV’s “It’s a Knockout” were wondering what do do with a host of unforgiving lycra ensembles! Fast forward to 2011 & Deb hung upher feather boa to head north & “grow chickens”. Enter Belinda Marsh (that’s me!) – a certified Corporate Escapee with a sales & marketing background, over 20 years’ weekend experience teaching gymnastics to 5 year olds, but most importantly, a passionate conviction that adults need to have MORE FUN!

Meet The Team

My CRAZY AWESOME team & I are fired up about continuing to build a service business with heart & soul that you’re going to love coming back to again & again. We LOVE our crazy costume emporium in Crows Nest – we LOVE the face to face contact we have with you guys & the fact that you entrust us to advise you on your special occasions. We LOVE handmade artistry, vintage & originality & we’re SUPER EXCITED to be keeping the magic of costuming alive & well into the future.
