Mascots for Hire


Having a party?

About Us


Theatreland started as a small ‘home based’ business some fifteen years ago operating from Wynberg. At that time the company was known as Fancy That Costumes. The vision of Fancy That was to provide quality fancy dress costumes along with excellent service, recognising that most people when invited to a fancy dress party need help and advice to select the right costume. Through rapid growth the business moved to shop premises in Plumstead.

In 2002, Fancy That acquired Sue Farmer Costumes in Pinelands, since then we have added over 5000 costumes to the business for a better range of ideas for your fancy dress occasion.

In 2007 the Pinelands branch acquired additional space and extended to become Cape Towns first Fancy Dress Super Store with some 450 sq meters of wardrobe space, luxurious appointed changing areas plus a full time workshop. The workshop manufactures costumes ( made to measure ), Mascots and Props for Theater, Corporate Marketing and Sports Teams.

In 2010 Fancy That Costumes rebranded to 'Theatreland' offering you the most comprehensive selection of fancy dress costumes and accessories in the Western Cape.

All hire costumes are maintained to the highest standard and our range increases every day with two full time designers producing new costumes daily. Our wardrobe staff are highly trained to assist you to advise you in the selection and fitting of the right costume for your occasion complete with accessories to add that final touch. We are here to ensure that you and your costume make a Grand Entrance.

If you prefer, take a look at our unique range of manufactured 'Theatreland' products, which you can purchase to complete your own costume or to add that final touch to your hired costume. Wigs, Beards, Moustaches, Hats, Mask, Make Up, Domino Masks and a large range of accessories all available from Theatreland.
