We’re soooo looking forward to dressing up with friends for Mardi Gras 2020 and made our friend Julian into a delicious cocktail snack as a tribute to this year’s theme ‘Rise.’
We’ve been searching far and wide in preparation to make certain we have the most fabulous costumes and accessories for you to hire and buy. Also professional makeup artists to make your wildest dreams come true. 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.
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.
Season’s greetings. 2020 has been….weird.

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.
02/11 Update: For Halloween hire returns our opening hours this week are: Monday 02/11 11am-7pm, Tuesday-Wednesday 11am-5pm, Thursday 05/11 11am-8pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-5pm
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.
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.
