Getcha Gearon Costumes was founded in 2010.
The owners had a vision for a fun, clean and colourful dress up shop and voila… Getcha Gearon was born!
The quirky business name comes from the owner's maiden name, Gearon.
The business began trading in a garage at a residence in Highton, a suburb of Geelong, Victoria in 2011 and then moved to its first retail premises at Level 1, 73 Malop Street, Geelong in May 2012. In April 2015, after 3 years of steady growth the business again moved to a much larger location at 151 Mercer Street, Geelong. In April 2020 (in the middle of a pandemic!) the store moved down the road to 51 Mercer Street, Geelong, after the local council bought and demolished the building for development.
In August 2017 a second store was opened in Ballarat, Victoria, 501a Main Road, Golden Point.
The shops employ staff that are all very knowledgeable in a wide range of genres, have a keen eye for detail and a general interest in fashion and what looks good. The staff have seen the costumes on real people and pride themselves on being able to find the perfect costume for their customers so they walk out the door feeling completely satisfied and transformed!
The shops are immaculately clean and smell fresh as a daisy! Our costumes and accessories are cleaned after every hire and most of the costumes you wouldn’t even know someone else had worn them!
