Chris and Jo Ropitini have ventured into the world of fancy dress, purchasing Carnival Costumes from the former owners, Jill and Wayne George who tended to Carnival Costumes for over ten years, having purchased it from the original owner, Wilma Mactier. It’s an exciting, fun business to be involved in, and we are thrilled to be the new owners!
Ben Howe is the new Shop Manager, we prefer to call him “Shop Man of Awesome”. Ben is formally trained in animation, loves everything Pop Culture and is passionate and talented in his artistic endeavours. Recently Ben and his equally talented Fiance, Katie, attended Aethercon Steampunk Convention, and won first place for their amazing costumes.
Ben is also an enthusiastic photographer and recently completed a shoot for a local hairdressing salon, Nouveau Boutique, complete with costumes supplied by Carnival Costumes. Keep an eye out for some of those shots on our website!
We are all excited about Carnival Costumes and look forward to seeing you in store soon. Come and see for yourself why our shop has become known as
