Just realised I'm not very good at blogging! I am going to make a big effort to post more often!
Silly season is coming , so for Kampung Club that means Halloween and Christmas. We have lots of new costumes including our pretty witch in hot pink and black, long tutus for those budding ballerinas and lots of other cute frilly dresses.
I'm already taking more orders for school dress up costumes and have vowed this year to try not to deliver them the day before they're needed. Watch this space for photos as we have got a big photoshoot coming and then hopefully the launch of the new website!

Dress up days!

Why do schools have so many dress up days now? And why do they come all at once! Vikings, Egyptians, Tudors and Victorians and not to mention school productions and assemblies.
It's fun making the costumes but I do believe Vikings never wore those helmets with horns!
I'm happy to try most costumes for those desperate mothers without sewing machines!

Telling the tale or selling the tail?

Isn't it interesting how different cultures see the concept of "dress-up"? For me as a child an old net curtain and a pair of my mum's high heels could turn me into a princess or a bride for hours of role playing. Here in Malaysia our selection of tails and ears has a lot of Malaysians very confused; what's it for? how do you wear it? what do you wear with it? or just plain what is it?
While I was restocking our Halloween promotion at Bangsar Village 1 today with our new black cat tails and ears I had to tell the tale so many times to confused passers-by. Really it's whatever you want it to be and you can wear it however you like but for people who would like more definition we have tigers, leopards, dalmations, dinosaurs and black cats!

Busy, busy, busy! Yes, it's Halloween month again which means our machines are red hot! This year we are stocking even more shops with our costumes for the spooky season. We are looking forward to another successful promotion in conjunction with Allison's Place at Bangsar Village 1 the week before Halloween as well as a short promotion at Bangsar Shopping Centre. This year we have focussed on easy to wear costumes and therefore we have a wide range of capes in lots of colours. One size fits all and tey all retail for Rm50. We are also excited to launch our Halloween drawstring goody bags which offer an alternative to the plastic pumpkins which are difficult to store for the rest of the year (our bags also hold a lot more candy!)
 We are also now stocking a new kids furniture shop in Solaris Dutamas KL with our costumes.http://www.hidensleep.com/

Feeling guilty for not updating this blogspot, so thought I'd write a couple of lines about what's happening! Victorian Day is coming up at Alice Smith School so we're doing a batch of costumes for anyone who is in a panic! Full costume Rm120, mop cap on it's own only Rm20.
We are also working on a new design for sarongs for little girls which include their own little bag with our newly dressed kampung girl!

Christmas

Busy, busy, busy! Why does it all come at once and I'm never ahead of the game? Reminder for next year: Halloween starts in March and Christmas April. That way we have enough stock produced before someone asks me for Christmas concert /Egytian day/Greek day/Tudor day costumes!
Next week we will be at the American Xmas Bazaar at the new Royale Chulan Hotel on Jalan Conlay and for the next two weeks we will be taking part in the Christmas Promo on the ground floor of Bangsar Village with Allison's Place. So get down there quick while stocks last! Christmas fairies are quickly fluttering away! Of course if you'd like a nice cup coffee and piece of cake while you shop come along to our Thursday open house at Mutiara Seputeh:)
