With 10 colourful rooms of wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling costumes, wigs, hats and accessories you’re pretty much guaranteed to find what you’re looking for, and have a ball searching for it.
With a range of costumes and standard of service as classy as the stately colonial building it’s housed in, the Costume Shop fully deserves the reputation it has earned over 23 years of operation.
