Online Hire

Welcome to Fairy Godmother's New Online Hire Service!

We are now able to offer a great selection of our fab quality costumes to hire direct to your door.

It's very straightforward. All we need is a set of measurements and a credit/debit card no. We simply post out your desired costume with a guaranteed delivery service. If you give us enough notice, the costume will be with you a day or two before you need it so you can try it all on.  Then, after the event you return it to us, again guaranteed post via your local post office.


Q: What does it cost to hire?

A: Prices start at £26.00 though average hire price is £32-£36 (with accessories, though boots/shoes are extra).


Q: How much is the delivery?

A:  Costumes cost £10 per address to deliver. So if you booked 2 costumes or more, they could be packed in the same box. You are responsible for the return of the costumes via the Post Office using a guaranteed delivery option. (Parcel Force 48 Hour). This will also cost around £10.  Please note; Customers in the Highlands and Islands will have to pay more for delivery.


Q: What measurements do you need?

A: It does depend a bit on the costume. For example some of our furry animals fit just about anyone! However, if you are after a fitted suit or dress then we need PROPER measurements!

Dig out a tape measure and measure the widest bits!

For Chaps we need: Chest, Waist, Inside Leg, Collar Size and sometimes Head.

For Ladies we need: Bust, Waist, Hip and Height. NOT dress or bra sizes! (All the high street shops vary!)


This service is really aimed at customers who are too far away from our stores to come in and try things on. You get a much wider choice in our stores as we can only fit a fraction of our stock on the site.


Please contact our Oxford store ( or phone (01865 372553) with details of costumes required and a day time contact number.


If we feel we cannot guarentee that you will be happy with your costume, whether because of fit, or any other reason, we reserve the right to withdraw the costume from the online hire service.
