How does the hiring process work?
  • Come into the store and find the perfect costume for you. We can accessorise and mix and match until we achieve the perfect result.

  • The return date for each costume hire is stipulated on the invoice, as agreed at time of purchase.
  • There is no need to wash our outfits, many items are exceptionally delicate, we will do it for you!
How can I book an outfit for a future date?
  • Regretfully we cannot take telephonic bookings. We prefer you come to the store to try the outfit on, make sure it fits and you are completely happy and excited!
  • Bookings can be made up to 2 weeks in advance however we require full payment of hire and deposit up front. This will ensure that your outfit stays safe and not used by anyone else until you come to collect it.
  • We cannot allow you to take the outfit straight away because that’s when things get lost and damaged – so just to keep everybody happy we keep it safe for you and ask that you come in a day or 2 before to collect.
  • Should you decide you no longer want to take the outfit you have booked and paid for unfortunately there will no refund. You will of course get your deposit back.
  • Your receipt will be electronically emailed to you, please ensure that you receive this and the details are correct.
