About Us

About Us

First and foremost, welcome to Oktoberfest Costumes. We are a 100% Australian owned and operated business. And we are proud to admit that we are a small work from home business started in 2017 by a few friends based in Melbourne. Following the popularity of Oktoberfest in Australia this business was developed to test the market. There are some fantastic costume suppliers in Australia yet there was a gap in the market for an Oktoberfest specialist. And that's exactly what we are.

Our Director

andrea houchen the oktoberfest costumes founder Andrea Houchen, also known as Anie, was the successful founder of Toepaz Dance & Performing Arts, a 300 student dance school that hand made most of their own costumes for more than 10 years. In recent years Anie has been the primary carer for her beautiful daughter Ruby which provided the perfect opportunity to start an ecommerce business, working on her own terms and caring for Ruby at the same time. 

Our Mission

To provide Oktoberfest Costumes at the lowest possible prices.

How "Factory Direct" works

Shipped directly from the manufacturer with very small profit margins we pass the savings to our customers. That's the easy part. The hard part is processing and shipping these things quickly. A challenge that is often out of our hands, however we are working very hard and embracing new technologies that empower us (and our manufacturers) to get the costumes to your doorstep as quickly as possible. 

What if I need fast delivery?

Australia post express shipping logoWe stock a huge range of "premium" costumes (here in Australia) which all come with FREE Express Shipping. Dispatched from our Melbourne warehouse, in most cases these costumes will arrive the next day. Please see Australia Post Express Shipping for details.
