About US

Costumes WP is a fancy dress and costume hire shop, which started from scratch in Somerset West in 2005. The first shop was situated on the second floor of a larger building at The Triangle, Somerset West. This business area caters for bigger industrial type businesses and is hardly associated with fancy dress costumes.

As a result, we started to look around for a location more suitable to our needs, and in January 2010 were very fortunate to find what we were looking for in the Somerset Mall area!! We were so excited with the new site that we went ahead and purchased the property. We relocated to our new premises in April 2010. The shop is located in the Melcksloot Village complex which is off the major road (Reed Street), which runs north to south through The Mall area. Our visibility has improved substantially and the shop is also much more assessable – and we are on the ground floor!!

We have thousands of fancy dress costumes in various categories and sizes for adults and children, and wigs for hire. We also sell a wide range of costume and party accessories. Novelties include masks, make-up, fancy hats & caps, feather boas, belts, rings, glasses, etc. We are proud to offer you the most comprehensive range of fancy dress costumes and accessories in the Somerset West area.

Fancy dressing is great fun and we want you to enjoy every minute of it.  Therefore, as a matter of principle, we maintain our ever increasing range costumes in the highest standard of quality and cleanliness. In addition, we offer our customers the services of experienced staff in fancy dress costumes. She will gladly assist you in the selection and fitting the right costume for your occasion, with the accessories to complete that final touch.

You are most welcome at our shop, and we promise you will be pleasantly surprised.
