How I get my kicks - Lisa Devereaux
Lisa Devereaux had always been partial to a bit of dressing-up, but now she has taken it to a whole new level.
“Just for parties and things, it is a bit of fun and who doesn’t like dressing up?” said Lisa.
“My family gets quite involved too. We love Halloween and enjoy getting dressed up for that and we've made our own costumes from time to time for the kids’ birthdays – it’s just fun.”
But a few weeks ago, Lisa decided to turn playing with dress-ups into her own home business and purchased Mac-ATTIRE Costume Hire.
“We only bought the business a few weeks ago off another lady who was well established in Orange,” she said. “It was a spur of the moment thing, but it is something that I’ve generally always had an interest in and now I've got an excuse to sit there and play with wigs and do silly makeup tutorials. You get a bit bored and say hey what will I be today — it’s pretty cool!”
The sudden influx of costumes, props and accessories has definitely been a hit with Lisa’s two children.
“The kids love it and can’t wait for book week coming up soon. There’s hat and wigs and masks — so many things!” she said.
Although, the children aren’t onboard with all of Lisa’s ideas.
“I think we'd get a kick out of picking up the kids from school in costume, but my son's not keen on the idea,” laughed Lisa.
“We haven't done it yet, but we've definitely thought about it and we've even contemplated going to their soccer games in costume!”
