A. We only hire wigs, which are part of specific costumes, when we cannot replace them.
However as that does involve us washing, setting, and praying for hired wigs, it is more affordable for you to buy a wig.
We will advise you how to wash and look after a wig you buy from us. This wig should last well for years.
Q. How much does it cost to hire a costume?
A. The average cost of hire for almost all of our mens & womens costumes is $44 to $88 for up to three nights. There is also a refundable security bond required – usually $100 per costume. Seasonal costumes such as Father Christmas & Easter Bunny have special hire rates. Extended hire is available for all our costumes.
Q. Do I have to book my costume early?
A. Costumes can be booked up to three weeks ahead of collection, the more notice we have the better.
We know you can’t always plan everything weeks in advance, you’re welcome to come in at the last minute – if it’s on the rack you can hire it on the same day.
Q. Can you email photos of the costumes to me?
A. Sorry, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to photograph all the costumes we have and email them individually to our customers. Examples of our costumes are in the hire and buy section on this site. We are working to add more all the time but there are literally thousands of costumes available at our store. The best thing to do is phone to see if the costumes you’re looking for are available to view when you’re ready to come in, you won’t believe how many costumes there are to choose from.
Q. Do you have lots of sizes?
A. We can usually cater for small, medium, large & extra large in mens & womens sizes. We often have more than one size available of our most popular costumes.
You are welcome to call about sizes. If you have actual measurements (chest, waist and hips) we will measure the costume you want to confirm sizing.
Q. How long does it take to have a fitting and make a booking?
A. It usually takes at least half an hour to try on a costume and organise your booking, but you can take as much time as you need to find the perfect costume.
Please arrive no later than 1/2 hour before closing time for your costume fitting.
Q. What if I damage or lose a costume I hired?
A. We understand that accidents may happen while you’re having fun, if you spill something on the costume don’t panic! We’d prefer to clean the stain ourselves, just bring it in and let us know what happened. If the costume is lost or stolen, we will have to recover the cost of replacement and this may be more than the security bond you have paid.
Q. Costumes for kids?
A. We specialise in costumes for adults. We have a small range of costumes to buy for ages 3 – 10 years.
