About us


Established in 1987. We have been around for a while so we know whatís available and we have had plenty of time to grow our collection.

In 2007 after almost 20 years in Epping we moved to much larger store in Carlingford, Sydney. Our Carlingford store is over three times as large, has plenty of easy parking and lots of new stock. Carlingford is in North Western Sydney between Parramatta and Epping.


Acting the Part is a real costume store where you can try your costume on. We love mixing and matching items and finding just the perfect costume. Donít forget you are going to a special event, are you really going to love going out in something from a discount store or something you didnít get to try on before purchase? Unlike many mass produced costumes our hire costumes are made from quality fabrics which makes a huge difference in both fit and comfort. Because we make our own costumes we are able to stock costumes to suit all shapes and sizes.


Our hire collection includes 1000ís of items. If you need a single accessory or themed items for a whole group we can help. Most of our costumes have been made or purchased new for this business. We add new costumes almost every week whilst maintaining and improving our existing stock. All of our costumes are cleaned every time they are returned to our store.


We choose the costumes we sell very carefully and we make sure we get our hands on one first to check out the quality. From experience we know that the quality and sizing of costumes available for purchase varies enormously so we offer the opportunity for you to try them on in our store. There are hundreds of places on line where you can buy costumes but to avoid possible disappointment your best bet is to try your costume on before you buy so it is well worth the visit.


In addition to selling costumes we also stock costume accessories, wigs, makeup, and a great range of eye masks for masquerade parties.  


Our balloon range includes DIY helium balloon kits, pre inflated helium balloons, quality balloons in a huge range of colours, giant number shaped balloons, and air or helium filled table arrangements.

Our store is located on the first floor, if stairs are a problem for you please contact us by telephone so as we may assist you in any way possible.
