Desiree FAQs

 

Q: How long is the hire for?
Approximately three nights. A typical hire would be Friday to Monday. If you come into the store the week of your party, you are welcome to pick out a costume and take it with you.

If you need the costume for longer, that can be arranged. We are very flexible, so give us a call if you need extra time.

Q: Do you require a bond?
Yes we do. The bond is typically $50 per costume or a credit card imprint. An imprint is just a copy of your credit card. As long as the costume is returned as agreed, we don’t charge anything on your card. When you return the costume, we tear up the copy.

Q: Can I come and try costumes on?

Absolutely! Come into the shop try some on! We have a huge range for you to choose from. Our knowledgeable staff will help you find the perfect costume.

You can find our hours at the bottom of this page.

Q: Are your costumes washed?
They certainly are! We have a specialist laundry onsite. Hats and footwear are also thoroughly disinfected and cleaned after each hire. We ask that customers do not wash the costumes as many of them are delicate and need special treatment.

Q: Are shoes and wigs included in the price on the website?
No, they are an extra charge of between $8 - $20.

Q: Do you have plus size costumes?
Yes we do! We have a great range of costumes up to size 28 and we are always adding to our collection. If you can't find what you are looking for, ask us and our seamstress might make it for you to hire.

Q: Do I have to hire a full costume or can I just take the parts I need?
You don't have to take anything you don’t need. In most cases you can hire accessories or partial costumes if you’d prefer. Pricing will depend on what you end up with.
