The WEARHouse

I have always been a fan of fancy dress parties (and who isn't?), so it is not surprising that my first discovery in Singapore is a fancy dress shop!

Well but this isn't your average latex/nylon/wigs type of place! They sell/hire the REAL stuff here.

The shop assistants refused to talk to me about the shop saying that it is government-owned or something but on my way out I still managed to snap these two shots and grab a mini brochure which had all the information I needed to know. On a second thought, I was wondering why I didn't just go in as a regular (undercover) customer but it turned out you need to reserve for any trials/visits as well. Seriously this is serious stuff!!

According to its brochure, apparently the shop owns 'over 5000 pieces of of costumes, headgears, accessories and props', and their services include in-house costume portrait sessions which sounds fun if you've always dreamed of being in a Geisha outfit even for few minutes.

Here's the link to the shop's website if you're interested to know more or you're planning your next (serious) fancy dress party especially that Halloween is just around the corner. 

BTW if you found out about this place from my blog, I'm expecting an invite... OK just some snaps of you in one of those gorgeous costumes then :-)
