Snog The Frog
This haven of fun, frivolity and fancy dress is hidden in a Surry Hills backstreet.
There's never a bad time to dress up — and not just don your sleekest threads, but put on a costume. Perhaps you really want to spread some festive cheer mid-year. Maybe you need something spooky for Halloween. Or, you could just need something wizard-related for one of Sydney's regular Harry Potter-themed events. Snog the Frog knows all about throwing on a different outfit for a special occasion.
You'll find Snog The Frog behind a roller door on a backstreet in Surry Hills. There's plenty to hire or buy, and most of it is Aussie made. Plus, the independent team offers a makeup service to take it to the next level with some special effects.
Round up two of your mates and go as Kath, Kim and Sharon, convince your best mate to be the B2 to your B1 or dress up as a real-life Australian icon like Steve Irwin, Cathy Freeman or the Sydney Opera House (we didn't think it was possible, but Snog The Frog's done it).
