This Halloween we’re celebrating all things spidery with an ’80’s new romantic twist. ‘Mel Muffet & The Spidettes,’ are here to style your ultimate Halloween fancy dress costume to hire or buy. The best costume shop in Sydney has been transformed into a giant spider’s nest in anticipation and we’ll be expanding into a temporary outdoor retail space on the day.
Our Surry Hills store has limited capacity so visit us early to avoid the queues. Otherwise you can buy online from us on the world wide web. And yes, that’s a spider pun.
Our opening hours this week are: Monday 26/10 to Wednesday 28/10, 11am-7pm, Thursday 29/10 Special Late Night, 11am-Midnight, Friday 30/10 11am-5pm, Saturday 31/10 Halloween night!!! 11am-6pm
You’re thinking of hiring a costume but, germs. We get it. So here’s what we do:
– Cleaning, lots of it. Everything is washed, sterilised and steam cleaned in our store so we guarantee it’s Covid-free.
– We wear protective gear when handling costumes – we don’t want the bug either.
– All hire costumes that are worn, even just a try-on in the shop, are cleaned and quarantined for 48 hours before being hired.
– Also: private appointments, please make one if you’d rather not share the shop with other customers.
– Delivery: book before 3pm and we deliver hire costumes at no extra charge within 10km of the Sydney CBD the same day.
The shop is still open from 11am-5pm Monday to Saturday. But if you want to make your facetime fruity without shopping in person then our COSTUME BY COURIER service is for you.
If you’re within 10km of the Sydney CBD we can drop any full hire costume to you, contact free, THE SAME DAY provided it’s booked before 3pm. DELIVERY IS FREE.
For Australia-wide delivery please contact us before booking – delivery times will vary.
And we guarantee that every booking is individually cleaned prior to each delivery.
Oy vey! Purim is nearly here but there is still time to pick up a costume for your celebration. Our Jewbacca Costume has been hired out but can we interest you in a Han SOLOmon? or maybe a (Jewish) Princess Leia costume? (Carrie Fisher’s paternal grandparents afterall were Russian-Jewish)
We have the biggest costume range in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs so you’d be a schlemiel to shop anywhere else.
How freakin’ fun is Sydney Mardi Gras? Really fun. Makes February FABULOUS and we’re so excited about it we just pee’d a little. This year’s theme is ‘What Matters,’ which could be a good reminder of the important social conscience of this event…unless of course what matters to you is getting blasted on Oxford Street surrounded by thousands of barely clothed hotties.
So anyway, we have all sorts of costumes and accessories to hire and buy. Also professional makeup artists to make your wildest dreams come true. Like for example this. Let us create something outrageous for you or just complete your own invention with that perfect feathery thing from the depths of our collection. Love, The Frogs.
Welcome to a gallery featuring a small selection of the hire costumes we have in-store.
In the backstreets of Surry Hills behind a roller door lurks a strange, almost mythical beast: a costume hire shop in the age of online shopping.
For over ten years Melanie Adam has fancy dressed thousands of customers at Snog the Frog. In 2017 things took a sharp left turn when Mel suddenly became the owner.
Snog the Frog has been a mainstay of costume shopping for making the pre-party a party. We still love the ridiculousness of dressing up. It’s silly and that’s OK.
Man, woman, child and everything in between, we’re here to help you find your ideal costume or even just that perfect accessory to complete your own invention. We also provide full make-up services. Come and play dressups with us.
