Costumes can be picked up any day from Monday to Saturday, and must be returned within seven days of pick up. When costumes are needed for longer, an extended hire rate can be arranged.

If your costume is already overdue, please Contact Us as soon as possible.

All returns must be done during The Wardrobe's opening hours.

This is to ensure that all of the hired items have made it back to us safely and there is no unexpected damage.

Security bonds need to be refunded to the hirer or destroyed by one of our staff.

Costumes returned after the negotiated return date will be subject to late fees.

We are fastidious about the cleanliness of our costumes and wigs.

The Wardrobe takes full responsibility for all cleaning and maintenance of costumes, wigs and accessories after each hire.

Please do not attempt to clean items yourself.

Many of our garments require specialist cleaning and may be inadvertently damaged if subjected to the wrong laundering method.

If the costume you hired is exceptionally dirty on return and needs to be subjected to specialised cleaning, stain removal, repair or replacement additional costs will be charged.

Please refer to the next section Returning Exceptionally Dirty / Damaged Costumes for more information, or Contact Us to discuss your options.

The Wardrobe expects our customers to go out and have an enjoyable time in our costumes, however, when specialised cleaning, stain removal, damage repair or total replacement is required, additional costs will be charged in relation to the severity of the damage.

The age and condition of the garment will be taken into consideration on pickup.

If you are concerned about the age of a costume or the condition of a costume please mention it to a staff member before you leave the shop, or Contact Us ASAP. Some of our pieces are precious vintage items and thus, a little more fragile.

The Wardrobe does not alter costumes for size - we usually have more than enough choice for every size.

We are always happy to mend any repairs pointed out to us before the day of pick up.

In some cases, customers are able to temporarily alter costumes, but this must be done by hand only - NO MACHINES OR SCISSORS PLEASE!

All alterations must be undone before garments return to The Wardrobe.

However, some vintage items MUST NOT BE ALTERED in any way - if you are considering doing any alterations please check with Wardrobe staff at the time of hire.
