Previous Testimonials for The Costume Store & Costumes4Schools

I would definitely recommend and also use this company again.  Even though we hired this outfit and had to have it delivered as we live over 100 miles away.  It was received in perfect condition and on time as promised.  The bag that it arrived in can be reused to send it back with the supplied returns label for the front.  Excellent service.  Both Jenny and Susanne are approachable and very helpful. Thank you both so much.

Costumes were of good quality, made of good material. Made the play seem much more professional. Definitely use again and will recommend highly.

TSD Performing Arts Society

Finding authentic costumes for school plays and exams can be an expensive affair and/or the quality in ‘fancy dress’ shops is often poor. We haven’t the time to make our own costumes so when I found the Costume Store on the Internet, I was so delighted. The service was brilliant, reliable, informed and friendly. The costumes were good quality and authentic. I am so glad to have found this place. It will always be our first port of call in future.

Bev Vincent, Head of Performing Arts Faculty, Copthall School

The costumes were great and the kids loved them! I would definitely recommend meeting to discuss the costumes and to measure the children as that ensured the correct measurements were taken and the costumes fit them really well. Thank you very much for all your help this year and I'll be in touch soon for costumes next year.Have a great summer.

Pia, St Andrews School, July 15

We initially contacted The Costume Store to help as with our 100 Years Celebrations. From beginning to end the experience was excellent. The Costume Store gave an assembly to the students, letters were sent out regarding hiring costumes. The Costume Store then came and measured the students that wanted to hire costumes as we had so many students/staff that wanted to hire costume they even gave us a discounted rate. The costumes were delivered to school on the day before the event and collected the day after.
The staff also hired costumes again this was a great success.

We have used The Costume Store for several of our major productions and have always been delighted by the quality of the items hired and with the expertise, helpfulness and dedication of the staff. The Costume Store is also extremely good value for money.
Nick Vause - Head of Drama at The Latymer School, Edmonton.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and The Costume Store for the fantastic service you provided us with. Hiring the costumes for Bugsy Malone from you really relieved us of a huge amount of work. There was just so much to do to get this production on stage so having the costumes sorted for us was just fantastic!
Everything was delivered well in advance of the production and, thanks to your advance measuring form, it all fitted beautifully! The children really were delighted with their costumes and they definitely performed better once they were dressed as their character.
It really couldn’t have been easier and you were very patient with my 1001 questions! I would highly recommend you to another school and will definitely use the Costume Store again!

The Costume Store was the only place that had the costume I was looking for. Extremely helpful. A griffin costume is difficult to find!
Susan

An astonishingly extensive range of outfits available here. One off items for a fancy dress party, or entire theatrical shows costumed. If they haven’t got what you ask for they’ll work out a way of getting it, adapting what they have, or pointing you in the right direction. They run an appointment system, so you need to phone and arrange a time. Cheap to hire, and as every item has to be cleaned when returned it is a real bargain.

Thank you for a fab service. The outfit was perfect and I loved the fact that the outfit was "clean". I will definitely be using your company again.

A visit to the Costume Store is so much more than a tedious trek to get stuff for the next show. It's like popping into the local for a gossip, except that the local is a treasure house of flounces and frills, and braces and bowlers, of exotic gowns and gorgeous embroideries, outlandish outfits and flattering numbers in satin and beads. Suzanne and Jenny are so kind, funny and patient - they search out rails of clothing in advance of our visit, and put up with our misplaced belts and odd shoes, and items returned which appear to belong to no-one. I have had the most delightful service from the Costume Store over the years, and dressed many plays handsomely from their stock, and I'm looking forward to the next time.
