This post is a little different to the kind we usually put out. We have some news for you, and if you’re a costume lover, it may give you mixed feelings! Here goes: Creative Costumes is finally closing down its doors after 25 years in the fancy dress costume business… and what a 25 years it has been! We can’t tell you how much joy it has brought us to be able to supply our party loving customers with the clothing to make their events as much fun as possible.

Let us assure you – we have absolutely loved being a part of not only people’s lives, but their imaginations too. What other job beats helping people to dress up as their favourite alter egos every day? We have had the pleasure of dressing up kids who have since become adults – and those adults still come to us because they’ve never got bored of dressing up!

We love everything about costume, cosplay and all of the fun that goes hand in hand. Why? Simply put, fancy dress costumes give us creative freedom; the ability to be someone different for a day. The Creative Costumes team know without a shadow of a doubt that this has kept us young at heart. Even though very soon we won’t be able to say we’re your number one costume supplier anymore, we hope that you will keep dressing up close to your heart, and that you’ll never lose that magic. We know for sure that we won’t!   

Creative Costumes has one last exciting offer in store for you

Before we bow out, we have something to say that may well be music to your ears: all of our one-of-a-kind rental costumes are now up for sale, which means that now you have the chance to buy your very own unique costume… so you’ll be able to use it time and time again. If you’ve ever wanted to be a princess, a showgirl or an astronaut, we have the costume for you – and we promise you that all our costumes will be on sale at amazing prices.

Grab yourself something unique from our one-of-a-kind costume range before they are gone for good. Knowing our customers, we are sure they’ll be flying off the rails pretty quickly – so don’t miss out! Anyone who has ever rented from us before knows that all our costumes are made from quality fabrics; they’re just what you’ll need to look your absolute best for the next costume party and beyond.

Top quality fancy dress costumes on sale now

So there you have it: from 21st November until 14th  December, we are having our closing down costume sale in store at 499 High Street Prahran, and of course you can also buy our costumes online. We will have fancy dress costumes available to buy for the first time – everything in our store is now on sale, including our packed and ready-to-go, brand new costumes.

The best news? It’s all for sale at up to 50% off the usual prices. The same goes for all the costume accessories we stock, from wigs to makeup, weapons and masks, costume kits and hats… even eyelashes! You name it; we’re selling it. There is undoubtedly something for everyone, whether you’re a kid or an adult.

It seems that now would be the perfect time to stock up for that Christmas party, or perhaps your 1920s style New Years Eve party bash to welcome in 2020? Maybe you’ll decide to surprise the kids by making a grand entrance as Santa. If you don’t have anything in the diary yet, what’s to stop you organising a party yourself? You’ve certainly got good reason to now!

A final note from Creative Costumes

Before we close our doors for good, we just want to say that our staff will sorely miss the fun and excitement of styling your next event. We thank you from the bottom of your hearts for helping to make Creative Costumes what it has been for all these years, and of course for your custom during this time. Make sure you come and visit us before December 14th, as that’s the day when we close the doors forever. In other words, don’t miss out on your chance to grab yourself a piece of costume history!

Stuck for ideas? Well as always, we’ve always been at hand to help you costume like a master… and even now, we’ve got a few costume ideas for you. Here are some of our firm favourites:

Santas helpers/Christmas Elves: We love these adorable Christmas Elves Couple Costumes. These are great for a Christmas or Winter Wonderland them, amd are priced together or separately.

Showgirls: We have various sexy showgirl costumes on hire, and believe us these never get old – no matter your age, and no matter the time of year! Swit swoo!

Marie Antoinette and King Louis: Be the King and Queen of the ball in this French Historical couples costume. King Louis and Marie Antoinette, anybody? Again, costumes are priced together or individually – as you wish!

Frozen characters: Who wouldn’t want to be a Disney prince or princess? Now is your chance!

1920s Broadway babes and flappers: The era that never gets old – ever! These costumes are pure glam, so don’t miss out on your chance to become a flapper, rather than getting in a flap before the next party!

Astronaut: It’s not too late to make it to the moon yet, with a little help from our ex-hire costume attire! NASA eat your hearts out.

So that’s it from us, but we can’t wait to see you in our Prahran store if you can make it. Otherwise, you know where to find us on line! Thanks again from all at Creative Costumes, and we hope you’ll keep the costume magic alive for many years to come on our behalf!
