Fancier Dress - FAQs
How much does it cost to hire a costume from Fancier Dress?
Costumes range in hire cost from £25 to £45 depending on the quality and complexity of the costume.
Do I need to bring ID with me to hire a costume?
If you haven’t hired from us before then please bring proof of address with you (driving licence, prescription, utility bill) so we can add you to our customer list. This is typical for companies who hire (Blockbuster, library etc) and your information will only be used by Fancier Dress and no other companies.
Do you hire childrens’ costumes?
Yes, we have a large range of childrens’ costumes to hire and to buy. They range in price from £12-£15.
Are hire costumes washed after use?
Of course! All of our hire costumes are either machine washed or dry cleaned after each and every use.
Do I have to pay a deposit?
Yes, each hire attracts a damage or loss deposit equal to the hire cost or £20, whichever is greater. This deposit is returned to you when the costume is returned to us in good condition. If the costume is damaged then we will only charge the cost of repair.
Do you only hire or can we buy costumes?
We have a huge range of costumes to hire and to buy.
Do you sell online?
Currently we have an online wig shop (with free delivery) and we do intend to expand this.
However should you contact us by phone or email we can supply you with any of our “to buy” costumes by post.
In order to ensure a good fit for our hire costumes we strongly recommend you come into the shop and try them on.
If our opening hours do not suit please telephone us and we will try to arrange an alternative appointment time.
Do you do balloons?
Yes, we offer a huge selection of helium and airfill balloons in both foil and latex. We can also offer local delivery on filled balloons.
I’m a size 18 and a bit nervous of fancy dress, can you help?
There is no need to be nervous; our first priority is to make sure our customers leave with a costume they are really looking forward to wearing. We pride ourselves on our range of sizes available.
