May the Fourth Be With you!
Movies have a way of taking us beyond our Earthly existence to another world. For fans of the movie franchise Star Wars, this world is one of a far away galaxy with strange creatures fighting against an evil empire. In the movie we find ourselves drawn into the battle and rooting for the underdog.
Star Wars entered theaters in May 1977 as a rather small budget film. It would go on to break the bank. Although it was first to be released, the director George Lucas places Star Wars as the fourth installment in the story, a story which nearly forty years later we are still waiting to see completed.
May Fourth is known as Star Wars Day, a non-official holiday created to celebrate the enormous influence that the Star Wars movie franchise has had on world culture. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher burnt the day into the brains of Star Wars fans when a congratulatory note read "May the Fourth be with you, Maggie," after she secured the position of Prime Minister in England. This was back on May 4, 1979. The phrase stuck, and decades later Canada sealed the date by holding a film festival and celebration of the film on May 4 2011.
What better way to celebrate the day than by dressing up as your favourite character - Dark or Light Side... We have a huge selection of Star Wars costumes for Star Wars Day, the widest on the continent. You can buy online or rent in the Brisbane area.
Heroes such as classic characters like the feisty but beautiful Princess Leia and the "space-smart" bounty hunter Han Solo and the small, but wise, Yoda to characters from the newer series like Jyn Erso and the popular Rey, we have something for everyone. By far the most popular costumes for May the 4th are the opulent and ultimate dress up costume, Darth Vader followed closely by the lovable Chewbacca - Be sure to book in early to secure these costumes to hire.
Speaking of Chewbacca, as we constantly have people falling in love with our sweet and hairy Chewy costume, we have stocked ONE Chewbacca Supreme Edition costume available for one lucky Star Wars fan to purchase! Just like our hire costume, this costume is fur covered silken haired bodysuit, large fur covered latex mask, latex hands, fur covered shoe covers and latex Chewie man bag, or more precisely, latex bandolier with functional pouch.
Of course this is the perfect costume to wear to Star Wars movie premiers or Supanova or Comic Con, but it's also perfect for everyday wear, like dropping the kids at school, picking up some milk on the way home... OK maybe not, but you will want to wear it all the time. Don't delay or you will miss out.
Where would our heroes be if it weren't for the villains?! They may be pesky in wanting to take over the galaxy but hey, they do keep the good guys in business. Speaking of villains, we also have a selection of villainous Star Wars costumes if The Dark Side is a little more your style.
We have of course the Sith Lord, Darth Vader. The once heroic Jedi Knight who fell into the Dark Side of the Force and led the Empire's eradication of the Jedi Order. This impressive costume is memorable to say the least and you will definitely make a impact when you walk into the room.
Emperor Palpatine, Master of Darth Vader, is a cunning politician who became the ultimate personification of evil in replacing Darth Vader as the central villain. He is described as the supreme ruler of the most powerful tyrannical regime the galaxy had ever witnessed.
Also bad guys, though not too scary if they're shooting at you, we have Storm Trooper costumes to purchase for adults and children.
For the children we also have a range of Star Wars Costumes available to purchase including little Chewbacca and Yoda in toddler sizes as well as children sized Princess Leia, Yoda, Darth Vader, Jyn Erso, Rey, Stormtrooper & Death Trooper costumes and Jedi Robes.
Ok, now you've dressed dad, mum and the kids.... But what about the pets?! Never fear we have some adorable costumes so your beloved pooch or cute kitty doesn't miss out on the fun! In our Star Wars Pet collection we have Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Yoda and R2-D2 costumes available.
What would Star Wars Day be without accessories to go along with your chosen look? After all, Star Wars Day is all about leaving our world behind for the Star Wars universe. We have the famed Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker light sabers so you can choose the side you wish to join. Will you join the light or do you choose to allow the dark side to take control? The choice is yours. Just choose before May 4th.
Avengers: Infinity War. Dress up as your favourite Marvel character!!
One week to go until the much anticipated Avengers: Infinity War hits our screen featuring all of our favourite Marvel characters such as Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Iron Man, Spider Man, The Incredible Hulk, Black Panther, Star Lord and Rocket Racoon. We are certainly spoilt for choice in picking a costume to wear to the screening...
For those Team Captain America, you are forever determined to defend humanity despite what the meddling politicians want - and even if it means taking on Iron Man Tony Stark himself! Captain America costumes for both Adults and Children available to purchase and hire from Disguises Costumes. We also have his iconic shield available in standard and super cute decorative fascinator sizes.
For those Iron Man fans, we've got you covered! A padded body suit with Arc Reactor will give you the ability to fly and strength to save the world - even if you are just a self made superhero. Like all other superheros, Iron Man's costume is completed with a mask. You can easily choose to take off the mask as show yourself as Tony Stark underneath because, hey, Iron Man's identity isn't a secret after all - just add some tinted glasses! See our Iron Man Costumes available to purchase for Adults and Children.
Stepping out is the Russian spy. This fiery red head is not cast for eye candy she is a tough fighter. Although she doesn't have superpowers, she certainly skilled enough to stand among The Avengers. We have Black Widow costumes for Adults and Children to purchase as well as a Women's Black Widow costume to hire.
As we saw in Black Panther the majority of the film was centred around whether Wakanda – which has hidden its advanced society and technology for centuries – should reveal itself to the world. By the end of the film, King T'Challa decides to offer Wakanda's aid to any country that needs it. The Avengers: Infinity War trailer revealed that Wakandan troops will become involved in the war with Thanos – apparently fighting him in the country itself. WAKANDA FOREVER!!
Also allied with Team Stark is Spiderman, who turned down joining The Avengers in Spiderman: Homecoming. In the Infinity War trailer we see alot has changed for young Peter Parker who doesn't seem to be shying away from the fight against Thanos - he seems to be a real Avenger now! Go Spidey!!
Head up the Guardians of the Galaxy crack team as their leader, Star-Lord a.k.a Peter Quill! It's time to take your gang of Marvel misfits on another thrilling adventure. The Universe isn't going to save itself!

(Un)Lucky Number 13!
That (un)lucky time of the year is upon us again! Friday the 13th falls on two months in 2018. The first being in April to and the second in July before the lead up to Halloween.
Don't be left in the dark in trying to skip this day as Friday the 13th always brings out all those superstitions in people trying to avoid bad omens.
Why not dress up as a Black Cat to give your friends a purr-fect fright?! We have a wide selection of catsuits, dresses and cat themed accessories to hire as well as purchase. Don't forget to pair your outfit with a pair of alluring cat contact lenses and dramatic winged eyeliner - MEOW!!
Where would a Black Cat be without their faithful owner, or rather, servant - a Witch! It’s safe to say that almost every girl has been a witch for Halloween at least once in her lifetime. However, chances are that your idea of witch Halloween costumes is significantly different than what it was when you were a little one. Why not try something a little different like our sweet Bewitching Witch or Darling Spellcaster Witch, or for something a little darker, there's always our gorgeous Pagan Witch costume. Did you know: The number 13 for Pagans actually represents good luck and going with the flow? 13 is the number referred to as change which is a great symbol for the New Year!
Of course, what kind of Friday the 13th party would it be without the big guy himself, Jason Vorhees? Bring Jason to life with just the right costume and hockey mask; scuff the mask with dirt and oil and cover it in blood and fake tissue. You'll have all your guests running for the cabins! Bloody blades are a must-have, as are tubes of fake blood and extra flesh for super realistic effects. As an added touch an open wound will give that "just-stabbed" look.
Trump your fears of 2018 with our range of realistic latex Donald Trump masks in an array of facial expressions. Within our Trump range we can also cater for those seeking an authentic Trump look by ensuring the mask has his perfect subtle spray tan hue of - Orange! Just add your own white shirt, black jacket and signature red tie and you're set to conquer the world - or party.
Not feeling brave enough to go all out? Why not go for a subtle scare with our realistic True Blood vampire fangs or our range of crazy contact lenses. Another idea to add awesome final touches to gory costumes is with our 3D FX Transfers. These incredible products look freakishly realistic and simply apply with water - Too easy!!
