Fancy Dress Hire For All Ages, For All Occasions


We have MOVED! Our new address is 141B, Marshalltown Road, Grovedale


Opening hours are 11:00 - 4:30 Tuesday to Friday, and 10:00 - 3:00 on Saturdays.

We are CLOSED on Sunday and Monday

Note: We can open for large groups outside these times - by appointment only.

The Dress Up Place can provide costumes for your next fancy dress party, school concert, amateur theatrical performance, etc. If we don't have the costume you are looking for, if you can give us at least six weeks advance notification, we can usually custom make it for you. If you have a specific character in mind, bring us a picture and we may well be able to match it. Check out our photos pages for an indication of our range.

Your costume comes complete with accessories at no extra cost. We ask you not to attempt to clean the costume before returning it, as our charge includes laundering/cleaning. We will also charge you a refundable bond when you take a costume. We will usually give you up to five days from the event to get the costume back to us, and will allow you to take it up to 5 days before.


Please note:

The Dress Up Place does not have eftpos facilities, so please ensure you have cash for your hire.
