Due to the Royal Show and all the congestion and parking issues that come with it we will be closed for the week 25 September to 30 September. Will be trading on 23rd so get down early and get what you need for the next week. Reopening with our usual hours on Monday 2 October.

It's mid-September and we are still working our way through our costume collection. We still have plenty of bargains and unique costumes available(anyone want a two-man horse?). Come down and check it out. We are now closing at 4 on Saturdays so be early.

As of Saturday 22 April 2017 Apparition will cease hiring costumes. We will continue to supply masks, makeup and accessories but all the costumes in the shop will be on sale from Saturday 29 April until sold. Most costumes will be on sale for the price of a hire, some will be specifically priced. We are sorry to have to make this decision but the realities of the market have caught up with us. Thanks for all your support over the past 34 years.

We still have a large range of costumes left for sale as well as materials and haberdashery. Come down and see us for  a bargain. It's just like hiring without the bother of having to return things.

Had any costume parties lately? We'd love to see your costume photos! Post them to our Facebook page or tag us on Instagram
