Rose Chong Costumes

The only costume shop in Melbourne you need to know about.

Rose Chong Costumes isn't just a shop — it's an institution. Affectionately known as 'Chongworld', the ten rooms are bursting with imaginative and downright ridiculous bespoke costumes like vegetable-stuffed sushi rolls, loud gold bodysuits and sultry nun get-ups that'll have you doing a few Hail Marys later on.

Rose Chong has been drawing on her extensive experience in the film industry to frock up Fitzroy's streets for the past 40 years, so even if you don't need an outfit you should still pop in for a stickybeak. You can't miss the leopard print-covered facade with glittery pink lettering. Or, if you're feeling brave, it's the ultimate spot to re-create your favourite movie montage dress up scene. BYO music.
