It’s that time of the year again for trick-or-treating; Halloween (or Hallowe’en) is an annual holiday observed on October 31. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints’ Day, but is today largely a secular celebration. So it’s time to go get some costumes, commit pranks, tell ghost stories, carve jack-o’-lanterns and watch horror movies. 360nobs caught up recently with Christine Itegbe whose QBox offers the best costumes in Nigeria. May we meet you,please ? Hi. My name is Christine Itegbe. I am a part owner of QBOX PARTY CITY, the one stop costumes, props and party store serving Nigeria both online and through a wonder store located in Lagos. Why Q-Box? We wanted a name that describes an enclosed space of fun and decided on the word box. Q is the letter that defines its parent company name Quorum. Tell Us, How Long has Q-Box been in existence? Qbox has been in existence since May 2009. What makes Q-box different from other party shops in Nigeria? First and foremost, we are the only costume store open all year round serving Nigeria. Secondly, we are the only party shop which has a full costume rent range as well as sale range. We pretty much can cater to every pocket. We understand that a costume is usually used only once and for this fact, we developed our costume rent range which caters to people who do not necessarily want to buy a costume outright. Thirdly, we have the Qbox Angels, who are hostesses you can book for any event who come fully costumed. Also we are one of the only companies who offer a full range of props for events. Basically if you can think about it, we can provide it. Does Q-Box customise according to customer’s request? Yes we do. Costumes are about each individual and we do our very best to find or create one to suit each customer. We recently designed a bubble outfit based on award winning artist Lady Gaga. We work with a lot of major brands and provide customised costumes for promos or events. We have also provide costumes and props for Nollywood movies. You seem to have a lot of costumes,what type of party can you provide costumes for? Absolutely all types. We have costumes to cater to all party themes. For example if you have a police themed party, we can provide costumes for both cops and convicts etc. We also have loads of accessories to compliment the costumes that we have. Halloween is around the corner,do you have enough costumes to go round? Of course we do. Halloween is our busiest period of the year where we provide thousands of costumes across the country and sometimes within West Africa so yes, we definitely have enough costumes. What are you going for Halloween as? I guess you will have to be at the QBOX Official Halloween Party at Rehab on Saturday, the 30th Oct, 2010 to find out. So, if a customer comes to Q-Box to purchase anything and they say they got to know about Q-Box on 360Nobs, is there any form of discount for them? We have a voucher available on 360nobs.com for any orders placed online through our online store www.qboxshop.com. We are also having the yearly QBOX HALLOWEEN SALE on the 28th, 29th and 30th Oct at 3b Abiola Segun Ajayi Road off Muri Okunola Street, Victoria Island, Lagos. Come along to get 5% OFF.
