Our outfits really ARE of the highest quality:
Funky Fancy Dress is one of South Africa's most exciting suppliers of fancy dress costumes to the public. As a customer of Funky Fancy Dress you have the opportunity to hire costumes that have been made and supplied for specific TV and Film productions over the years. Our costumes aren't made for fancy dress parties - they are the real deal!
Not just period costume:
It's not all about period - we have hundreds of costume styles including fantasy, space, animals and mascots - the list goes on and on. Whatever your theme or occasion, we've got it covered. Let us help you be whoever you want to be!
Our service is bespoke:
If all you need is that finishing touch for your outfit, for example: the perfect coat to be Neo from the Matrix or a top hat and crazy frockcoat to be the Mad Hatter, then we can help. We are happy to supply as much or as little as you need although we are confident that once you've seen how our costumiers can transform you into something spectacular, the chances are you will go away with more than you thought! You can always add a wig or make-up from our retail shop to finish the whole thing off.
Our collection spans all eras as well as covering fantasy, sci-fi, animals, food and novelty. Our expert staff are vital to what we do ensuring that our costume hire service is unique.
Why hire from Funky Fancy Dress?
Why Funky Fancy Dress & How
Start with a little inspiration...
Costumes are styled for you individually, making it impossible to show you all of the combinations possible. The images online are only a guide to what can do.
To get your own personal look, all you need to do is to speak with one of our trained costumiers at our 8 Bordeaux Drive Shop and they will then style a costume for you to your measurements. Subject to size and availability, it will be as similar as possible (if not even better) to the image you have chosen on our website.
Still stuck? Then we're here to help.
If you still need inspiration then that's what we're here for! We have been dressing-up the great and the good for many!
Costs and length of hire:
Prices are dependent on the type of outfit you choose as well as any additional accessories you may need. As importantly, you can guarantee that no-one else will be wearing the same outfit!
Some of our more unique costumes are more expensive to hire including Spacesuits, Mascots and Uniforms but please do call us and we can give you the information you need.
Payment of costume hire is by cash/credit/debit card only. As well as the hire charge itself, you will need to leave a deposit against the costume you take. We no longer accept cheques as any form of payment.
A flexible approach.
If you need your outfit for longer than a week or can't get the costume back on it's due date then call the store as soon as possible and speak with our returns department to find out what fees apply.
Want a fabulous costume but can't get in to the store?
Our bespoke service really does need to be experienced in person to get the most out of it and to guarantee the best fit, but if you really can't come in and see us then of course we can send a costume to you. To start the process you will need to call us or contact us by email. As costume hire is a bespoke service it can't be done directly through the website as we will need to send you a hire agreement. If you can't come in to the store, you should allow plenty of time for this process, three working days is best.
If you have an idea of the costume that you'd like, call in or email us your requirements and detailed measurements (see below) and we'll style it for you. Of course what we can send you will be subject to size and availability but we will always do what we can to put together exactly what you want or if its not available for some reason, the closest possible style to it.
If you can't find any inspiration from the website or if you have something specific in mind, you're very welcome to send us any images via email to email@example.com. Alternatively, call and speak to the hire team who can advise you on what we can do.
This information is intended to be a guide, if you have any questions we are happy to help please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just think of us as the biggest and best 'dressing up box' you'll ever experience. Ultimately we are here to make sure that whatever your occasion we make you look and feel the part.
All there is to do now is let the party begin!
