Do You Rent or Sell

We only Rent costumes when you come into the store. We sold off all retail inventory as we have transistioned to a rental shop..

What is the cost for custom work?

This varies by the product. Full costumes can have a large range of costs and usually start in the several hundreds of dollars range. We can alter existing costumes in some cases for a lower cost.

Do I need to leave a deposit?

For our rentals you do need to leave a security deposit, usually equal to the rental price. You can leave it in the form of cash or valid credit card authorization. The security deposit will be returned when the costume is returned on time and in acceptable condition. Damage or replacement charges are not limited to the security deposit.

Do you have more than 1 location?

At the present time the Derry location is operating independantly of any other location and all costumes rented must be returned to Derry location. Please check back regularly as we are always looking for opportunities to expand our business and customer base.

How do I reserve a costume?

Come by the store, try on a costume and pay for it with credit card or cash. It’s best if you rent your costume way in advance of your event. Payment must be made in full and all sales are final-there are no refunds.

We accept Mastercard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. We also accept cash and business checks. We DO NOT accept personal checks.

What are your hours?

We will try to post current hours on the home page but generally the store is open 9-5 Monday through Friday and by appointment on Saturday. We are closed Sundays. During the month of October we are open extended hours, usually to at least 7 or 8 PM weekdays. Call the store or check the home page for hours.

How many days do I have the rental?

Generally we charge by the day but since we are closed Sunday you can generally pick-up weekend costume Friday or Saturday and return them Monday. Halloween time we may make exceptions for earlier pickup because of the large volume we have to go through. Your rental slip will clearly state when the costume is to be picked up, used and returned.
