They're all together Ooky, Kooky, Spooky and Fun
If you love Dr Who and find that you have an overwhelming urge to yell, 'EXTERMINATE' but have nothing to go with your catch cry, then Kooky Costumes can hire you a Darlek outfit so you feel complete.

If you have ever dreamed of being Elvis, fat or thin, Cruella Deville, or Kermit the Frog; have a fancy dress party to go to, or it's Halloween, Christmas, Easter; any time really, then I recommend that you check out Kooky Costumes, located at 116 Sutton Street, Redcliffe.

Kooky Costumes is a great fun shop run my by two extremely helpful fabulous entrepreneurial women, Tracey and Naree. I met them after following my own inner Inspector Gadget urge to check out their intriguing shop.

My alter-ego was delighted with the numerous costumes that it could consider and the wigs, oh the wigs!

There is much fun to be had at Kooky Costumes where you can indulge your inner child and play dress up, hire your perfect outfit and be the Bell of the Ball! Or a Gypsy, or on Baywatch.

Tracey and Naree had a dream of opening up their very own Costume Hire shop. About two years ago, they began to pull together their costumes collection. Once they felt they had enough choice, they decided the time was right to officially open Kooky Costumes doors to the public in March 2013.

They have something for all sorts of occasions:

Race like you're a Melbourne Cup Jockey
Sing 'In the Navy' - I keep hearing the Village People while writing this suggestion
Construction Worker - YMCA style, or not
Adventure out in a Safari Suit to 'bird watch'
Be Ned Kelly for a night, "Hands up Boys, this is a Robbery!"
Dance your heart out Bollywood style
Recline with grace as Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra
Be the Queen of France, Marie Antionette
Sexy up as a Saloon Girl or serve as a Beer Wench
Be a Gangster, like Bugsy Malone (for those who remember that old movie)
Fight glorious battles as a Gladiator just like Russell Crowe
Be Scotty and tell 'em, "For Love of God, don't use those torpedoes." Indulge your hidden Star Trekkie
Matrix, 'Neo, you have been down that road before. You know where it goes."
Be a Knight of Ni!
A Unicorn - I kid you not!
Indulge your own little bit of raunchy Burlesque like Christina Aguilera
Sing "Let's do the Time Warp again", Rocky Horror Picture Show style
Yell, "Brrrrrraaaaaiiiinnnnsss," as you shuffle your Zombie-self toward the waiter at the next party table.

Honestly, Kooky Costumes have a great choice of dress up options for your next party or fun night out.

Naree and Tracey told me that they came up with Kooky Costumes as a name because they wanted their shop to be memorable and a little fun/weird.

So, if you have a fancy dress coming up or want to indulge your inner cartoon character, make sure you check out Kooky Costumes.
