Due to a slight technical glitch, this site is currently not always updating quite as it should.
So far as we know this only affects a few pages, but we advise you to visit our alternative universe/website at http://www.antrixonline.co.uk/antrixcostumesmaidstone/


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 above!
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.
Meanwhile you might ask .... 
Why come to Antrix for your Costume/Fancy Dress needs?

For even more detailed costume and theme coverage go to our larger Costumes & Themes website, and our mobile/tablet-friendly site is also available.



In theory, Politics (plus the B word) have little to do with Fancy Dress Costuming (aside from the guy who used to dress as a chicken to shame politicians and has now apparently become a political advisor in the New Regime). Anyway, you might have noticed something other than Halloween is supposed to happening on 31st October this year. This should add an extra dimension to the scary celebrations anyway, but, to add to the ‘fun’, a government minister has apparently suggested that there be a Bank Holiday on November 1st to allow financial markets to stabilise.

An Official Statement has since discounted the possibility of there being any chance of a Halloween (or B…..) Bank Holiday, but given that the school half-term week sometimes coincides with Halloween, a holiday after the 31st (the 1st November is the Mexican Day of the Dead, which is catching on as an extra celebration excuse) could prove interesting.

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:
We 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.
