Costume Hire - Frequently Asked Questions.
These are the answers our customers often require, but we'd love you to pick up the phone so we can talk more...
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 $70 to $100 for one night, two or three nights. This price can include a wig & accessories. 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.
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 floor you can hire it on the same day.
Q. Do I have to book my costume early?
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. A small sample of our costumes can be seen on the Photos & Ideas pages, we are working to add more all the time but there are literally thousands of costumes available between our stores. 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. Can you email photos of the costumes to me?
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, but each store has different stock.
Give us a call before you come in, we'll be happy to see what is available in your size.
Q. Do you have lots of sizes?
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. How long does it take to have a fitting and make a booking?
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. What if I damage or lose a costume I hired?
A. We specialise costumes for adult men & women, but we do have a range of costumes to hire for ages 6 - 12. Hires start from $40 - $60, we also have a range of childrens costumes to buy.
Q. Costumes for kids?
