Dunbar Costumes is a popular costume and party shop based in Caerphilly, Wales. Rachel Hooper talks us through what has been selling well in recent weeks.
Adult costumes. Fruity costumes, Smiffys. Fred & Wilma Flintstone, Rubie’s. Carry Me, Wicked Costumes
“We’ve done really well with Smiffys giant strawberry costume, that’s sold really well for us. Anything summery is selling well and the Flintstones are lightweight so they’ve been popular too. Carry Me costumes are still selling well despite the heat!”
Children’s costumes. Suffragette costume, Smiffys.
“This has sold so well for us over the summer holidays and we have no idea why! We completely sold out and had to get some more. The sashes are really popular as well – it’s such a great costume.”
Accessories. Hawaiian accessories, Wicked Costumes.
“Because its been so hot we’ve had a lot of people just picking up the classic summer lines, so lots of leis and other Hawaiian lines.”
Partyware. Alice in Wonderland and Vegas. Amscan.
“These have been selling very well for adult parties, they are definitely some of our most popular lines. Themed photo props to match the occasions also sell well.”
Facepaints. Basic sets, Snazaroo
“We’ve sold a lot of these recently, because its festival and summer fair season. Not so much glitter, it’s been all about going back to basics.”
