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 closing down its retail store and moving online 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 absolutely love being a part of not only people’s lives, but their imaginations too. What other job helps 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 an exciting offer in store for you

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

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? 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

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 pour Prahran store we re-open in 2020 online from our warehouse in Oakleigh. 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!
