Viewings and hire are by appointment only.

Hire Rates

Standard costume hire rates start at $25 per costume* (based on 20 costumes for one week), and get cheaper the more costumes you hire. It may be possible for you to hire costumes for as little as $12.50 per costume.  Additional rates apply to mascots, vintage, intricate and one-off costumes/accessories.  (Minimum hire: 20 costumes)

Sets and props are costed individually based on quantity and location if shipping is required.

Some schools charge students a levy to cover these fees, so that you can have great costumes and sets/props without eating into your production budget.

We do not handle individual costume hire, fancy dress hire or sell costumes.

We provide a comprehensive costuming service for teachers and theatrical professionals to make costuming your production as easy as possible.

Come view the collection

Make an appointment to browse the collection and choose your costumes. We recommend that you bring the measurements of as many of the cast as possible to this meeting. We work with standard Australian sizing and the Standard Body Measurement Scale as it helps us to gauge costumes efficiently.

Submit your ‘Costume Dept Request Form’. Costume hires will not be confirmed any earlier than six weeks prior to the hire period.

A price estimate will be sent along with the terms and conditions. The agreement must be returned in order to confirm your hire.

Pack & pick up

Our skilled Costume Staff will organise your costumes onto racks so on your collection date simply check the costumes, make any small changes and we can assist in packing into bags.

Return your costumes by the agreed date. Laundry is included in the cost unless otherwise ageed. Simply drop the costumes off at our office or feel free to send back via courier.
