Agent Costume is a small costume making and costume hire business in Bondi, Sydney, Australia, operating as a sole trader.
I share a tiny little workshop space in Bondi with another costume maker and we have filled the space ’til it’s busting at the seams! If you are looking for Agent Costume you have to say so. Otherwise I may loose the opportunity to costume you!
We share a nice big window that looks over our little grass patch on the corner of Ocean St Nth.
If I’m not there, leave a note and I’ll get back to you, or call 0405808884 and leave a message.
An appointment is often necessary, but if you drop by and I happen to be in, I may have a moment to help you put together some awesome combinations of costume! It’s my favourite thing, so if I can, I will push everything else aside to play.
If you don’t mind getting a bit underground and edgy grunge with your surroundings in order to find the jewels hidden within, and you’re keen to support your local small business whilst also receiving a discounted costume hire rate, then drop in and try a few outfits on.
The overheads are low, we don’t have fancy shop fittings or shiny lights, and so that discount transfers to the customer.
There are boxes of headpieces, gloves, belts necklaces, leotards, shirts, boots etc.
People often remark on the quality stating that most of what they’ve seen available for hire in other places is all the same cheaply made, bought on-line insubstantial costumes.
I have quite a few treasures, most of which I made myself, and it brings me joy to see them head out for a fun night with friends.
If I’m not there I could be doing any of the following:
- Fabric sourcing
- At a meeting discussing costumes with a client
- Sewing sets in a bigger sewing warehouse at a secret destination
- Set dressing for a TV commercial or TV show
- Sourcing costumes for events
- out to lunch!
Situated in Bondi just off the beaten track, near the middle of Bondi Rd.
We are at the rear of 180-184 Bondi rd, Bondi.
The front door stands on Ocean St Nth.
We have a small selection of really awesome costume hire stock, which is always changing and growing, and a bunch of machines that can make the most amazing costumes, dresses, clothes and accessories your heart can dream of.
I have some novelty costumes, and some really great vintage 50’s, 60’s and 70’s clothing for hire.
I’ve even been known to sell pieces to people who’ve fallen in love with them.
Once someone has fallen in love with a garment or accessory it seems a shame to keep them apart. Unless of course, it suits me better to keep it.
So what are you waiting for, make an appointment, or drop by and try your luck with your timing.
