This north shore mainstay for costumes and fancy dress accessories has been in Chatswood since the 1960s.
Chatswood is home to one of the best fancy dress shops in Sydney: The Wardrobe Costumiers. The store has been around for more than 50 years, supplying costumes for both private and theatre use — its costumes have been used in heaps of stage and film productions, to give you a sense of the quality. The shop is a far cry from your average Halloween store, with no prepackaged, mass-produced costumes to speak of. Instead, the warehouse is an ever-changing array of vintage pieces, handmade clothing and rare historical replicas. Whether you're invited to a flapper, The Breakfast Club, Marie Antoinette or medieval-themed party, this place has you covered.
