Cos­tume Cor­ner is a trea­sure trove of all things cos­tume and fun. This ex­tra­or­di­nary busi­ness has been a com­mu­nity favourite for the past 35 years when it was first es­tab­lished by award win­ning Aus­tralian cos­tume de­signer, Ju­dith Dors­man (Cad­die, Pic­nic at Hang­ing Rock). Over this time, the busi­ness has firmly ce­mented its pres­ence into the cos­tume in­dus­try for its un­beat­able range of au­then­tic vin­tage and fancy dress cos­tume pieces.

In 2010, Cos­tume Cor­ner was pur­chased by Hills Shire lo­cal, Kate O’Neill at the young age of 19. The busi­ness needed a lot of work, but Kate’s en­thu­si­as­tic at­ti­tude and driven mind set al­lowed her to com­pletely trans­form the tired busi­ness in to a modern, fresh and invit­ing place to visit. Kate has in­tro­duced a state of the art cat­a­logu­ing sys­tem, bar­cod­ing each cos­tume for im­me­di­ate and ac­cu­rate in­for­ma­tion to be ob­tained.

Along with this sys­tem, they re­cently in­tro­duced a web­site that al­low cus­tomers from all over Aus­tralia to view, or­der and pay for their cos­tumes with just a click of the but­ton. Cus­tomers can se­lect to have these items shipped di­rectly to them or col­lect them in store. Cos­tume Cor­ner ex­pe­ri­ences year round trad­ing through events such as Aus­tralia Day, Easter, Hal­loween, Book Week, Christ­mas and of course de­liv­ers out­stand­ing ser­vice for par­ties, cor­po­rate events, wed­dings, ad­ver­tis­ing, fundrais­ers and the like. They also are heav­ily in­volved in sup­ply­ing cos­tumes, props and spe­cial ef­fects make up items to lo­cal the­atre com­pa­nies and schools for their re­cur­ring pro­duc­tions.

Since Kate took over, it has evolved into a prof­itable busi­ness filled with diver­sity, ex­cite­ment and lots of laugh­ter.

Cos­tume Cor­ner is for sale!

It is now time for Cos­tume Cor­ner to be passed onto some­one new, with Kate and her hus­band about to start a new ad­ven­ture. If this sounds like a busi­ness that you could see your­self own­ing, con­tact Kate@ cos­tumecorner.com.au for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.
