Hopefully you are here looking to hire costumes (if you are not and just want a few ideas,
enjoy - there are around 170 pages to keep you amused).
If you are in a hurry, pictures of almost all our outfits can be found using the Costumes and Themes A-Z buttons
For those after other entertainment, stunning
(?) observations on the fun world of costuming can sometimes be found on our Facebooks (links below) and we are working on
some blogs for 2019.

Exactly why the Royal Mail has chosen 13th February, to release a set of stamps commemorating the works
of Leonardo da Vinci is a bit of a mystery - the 500th anniversary of his death is not until 2nd May. Still, because of the
anniversary, there are a number of exhibitions around the country showing da Vinci works, most borrowed from the Queen’s
private collection. Some have noted that the subject of one of the da Vinci drawings on display in Glasgow bears an uncanny
resemblance to the Duke of Edinburgh!
Obviously requests for da Vinci-based costumes are rare, although our own
collection does feature a Mona Lisa Picture outfit, as shown. An Artists and Models themed event possibly has more potential
for pushing creativity.
We were once involved in a body-painting competition with just such a theme. Most artists
contented themselves with creating a design representing a single artist on their model, but one ambitious painter attempted
to produce an entire gallery but ran out of time with just ‘The Fighting Temeraire’ and ‘The Thames Above
Westminster’ (both by Joseph Mallord William Turner)
completed. Peter’s effort was some Native Australian art - very aboriginal!
Having reduced many of our existing hire rates, we have a new price list for all our costume stock. This is
now available to view and download using the link below.

We do not
sell (or hire) costumes over the Web, but for those in the Maidstone and Mid-Kent area, wanting hire quality outfits
for your costume-based event, this is the place to be:
offer a service different from anything you can find on the Web (and in most shops) and usually you can mix and
match elements to create a unique look.
You can browse
almost all our outfits using the alphabetic links.
We carry a range of sell-through items and accessories for those who visit our
premises to the south of Maidstone, at Loose, and, unlike some shops, we can offer help and advice on matters such as
make-up and 'character back-story'. We can also run 'theme sheets' and montages on closed areas of this site
for the benefit of private party organisers.
Enjoy your visit to our sites.
