Testimonials

“I also wanted to thank you again as these costumes really were fantastic and they made our show,”

J Hanson Oliver  March 2017

“Thank you for the brilliant costumes for last week’s show. The Rogers and Hammerstein group number which opened the show, was all the richer for them.

Ore, Danny, Louise and Claudia were delighted with their look, I think the boys were quite taken with themselves!

Many thanks for your help, I hope we did you proud!”

Jane Marcantonio  BBC TV Strictly Come Dancing November 2016

I cannot recommend this company highly enough. I hired a full set of costumes for our crucible cast. They arrived swiftly, with each character’s full costume neatly hung and labeled. And lots of additional hats/ bonnets etc. Ruth was helpful and efficient in all correspondence. Saved me hours of searching charity shops and for a historical play like this, it was a godsend. Will definitely use again.”

Thank you so much for the hire of Daisy this weekend – she had many compliments from the audience and she really made the kid’s panto!”  Holly Clarkson Big Mouth Theatre  November 2016

“Thank you so much for hiring us the Napoleon costume for our son Felix.  He had a fantastic time wearing it!”

Kathryn Maintzer   Oct 2014

An amazing find for my student play. They do am dram and professional costume services as well as personal fancy dress I believe. Ruth (who runs it) has a huge range of quality costumes (good enough for theatre and film) and was super friendly and helpful at providing costumes for my budget. Slightly out of the way but easily accessible from the M1 and worth a trip for anyone looking for costumes in the Beds, Herts, Bucks region or even from London”

Laura Oxford Drama Group – August 2014

“Thank you too for the hire of such wonderful costumes – they were perfect!”

Alison Fowler

Thank you so much, Penny

You’ll find a real Aladdin’s Cave of costumes – everything from fancy dress, to theatre and stage.”
