A crazy idea back in January 2017, led to the launch of this completely awesome little business. Joss says without the support of her wonderful husband her crazy little idea would have stopped there, but in August 2017 she launched her online store with is growing every day! Proof she says that even the craziest ideas came be bought to life!

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2018} Let’s go on a Christmas Cosventure

It’s like a secret wonderland opposite the park in Bathurst. It’s overflowing with fun, adventure and excitement. It’s none other than Cosventure!

Cosventure is owned and operated by gorgeous Katherine Palma and offers costume sales and hire, SFX makeup and body art, pop culture collectables, LARP gear and cosplay building supplies. 

Cosventure has been keeping the people of Bathurst and surrounding areas dressed in the funnest of all attire for over 4 years now. I think what makes this business so special is that they took a gamble to open a shop this unique in a country town and the locals have supported them from day one. Cosventure doesn’t forget that so will go over and beyond to keep their customers coming back!

What I love is their wide range of stock and friendly customer service. Nothing is ever too hard and they will always ensure you have a positive shopping experience.
