About Us


Fancy dress parties are lots of fun. Regardless of the theme they allow you to step outside of your comfort zone and be an 'alternate you' for a while. Costumes often act as great conversation starters and when done well, can allow the wearer to really enjoy the experience. At Behind The Mask we know. We love to dress up.

Specialising in high quality costumes for stage productions, parties, corporate events, community functions and parades, Behind The Mask can help you find the right look for your event. Whether is is a spooky Halloween outfit such as a Zombie Doctor or the Grim Reaper, a Santa Suit for a children's party or a magnificent Henry VIII costume for an epic stage show, we can help.

Behind The Mask also understand that the difference between a costume and a GREAT costume is often the accessories and makeup that is applied. Online and at our Penrith store you will find a great range of such items as stage makeup, fake blood, wigs and tights to name just a small few items.
