The biggest & most beautiful costume shop in Melbourne. Our aim is to replicate the famous characters we all know and love, to the highest quality & detail. We scour the globe to piece together the perfect outfit so you, our customer, can hire incredible costumes for a fraction of the price (and effort!) of buying it yourself! There are no cheap, low quality costumes in sight, rather our five-star collection is aimed at those who have their eyes on that “Best Dressed” prize!

From Game of Thrones to Arkham Asylum, The Great Gatsby or classics from every decade, At Little Shop you’ll hop aboard the Hogwarts Express, sail off on the high seas like a pirate, travel back through time, twirl like a Disney Princess, smash and kapow your comic book villains, battle for the Iron Throne or wander with the Walking Dead. For just one night, you can be whoever you want to be! A pop-culture wonderland for the whole family!



For the foreseeable future, all costume hire fittings are available by appointment only. Of course you are more than welcome to come in for for regular shopping! This new rule only applies to anything requiring use of our fitting rooms. Packet costumes may not be tried on.

We have put this system in place in order to support our team & cleaning costs, as every costume worn must be washed and sanitised before returning to it’s wardrobe.

100% of your booking fee will go toward your shopping total. You are in no way obligated to spend any money during your visit but please know the booking fee will not be refunded or rain-checked if you do not find something during your appointment.

Thank you all so much for the amazing support and patience while we navigate this situation, and thank you for understanding that our customers’ and staff’s safety is very important to us.
