Brighton Fancy Dress - Costume Bazaar

Costume Bazaar was founded in Brighton Beach Melbourne in the '70's. "Brighton Beach Fancy Dress" was a  tiny 1 room fancy dress costume hire and dress up shop, with only a hand full of costumes. It then moved to bigger premises at Bay St Brighton, with a slight name change. The "Beach" was dropped.

In 1987, a quirky young lady named Joy bought the business & has been running it ever since. (See pic of Brighton Fancy Dress)

Joy's vision was to change the stigma attached to fancy dress shops, that of being small, cluttered and smelling like an op shop. Well, she certainly did that! Joy built up the business so much that she needed larger premises again. The old post office on South Rd Moorabbin was to be the new home. For the next 13 years we were known as "Bayside Fancy Dress".

Now, as Costume Bazaar, we are proud to offer our customers 30 years experience in the fancy dress and costume hire industry. We are  one of Australia‚Äôs largest dress up shops with friendly, quirky and experienced staff members, all of whom love helping customers on a daily basis.
