About Us

Fancy That! Costumes is the best quality, best organised costume emporium in Sydney, with the best & friendliest service – just ask our customers!


We have a single, full service bricks & mortar store in Crows Nest, Sydney for when you need it now - be it costumes & accessories to buy, bespoke costume hire, or beautiful balloon bouquets.  


If you've got an extra couple of days up your sleeve, you can shop online from our expanded online-only range, with super fast shipping from our Australian supplier warehouses.    


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 to do with a whole host of unforgiving lycra ensembles!  Fast forward to 2011 & Deb & Liz passed the feather boa on to Belinda - a corporate escapee actively looking for a way to smooth the spikey bits off modern adulthood, encourage people to be unapologetically, authentically themselves & spread fun & laughter whilst doing so. 

The business has grown substantially since 2011, relocated twice, survived two pandemic lockdowns & seen countless crazy customers become friends.  We're more excited than ever to be keeping the magic of costuming - & the strength & community of local small business - alive.

We look forward to serving you soon!
