With Christmas and New Year over, television advertising (& hence customers) tend to turn their minds towards their holidays. It has been said by owners of costume firms that their costumes sometimes get better holidays than they do. Certainly those travelling to locations where costumes might be required – Carnival in Venice (you must look at our huge range of masquerade eye-masks), Mardi Gras in Rio – might choose to take something with them, rather than try hiring ‘on location’, for reasons of cost or simplicity. some cruise companies hold a fancy dress themed night as well nowadays. With Hens & Stags often choosing a theme for their celebrations, and often extending the traditional ‘last night of freedom’ to a weekend, and in some case, even a week away, taking a costume, or accessory with you just is not that uncommon any more. Why not have a look at our range of Hen & Stag Night Novelties
Things to consider before you choose your costume, or accessory, to take away with you:
- How much room will it take up in your luggage? You do need some space for your own clothing!
- Is there anything that could break, or get damaged by rough handlers? It may be better to keep it in hand luggage, and this will restrict what size costume you can realistically take with you
- Are you likely to lose, or damage it? If you answer yes to this question, then you really should consider purchasing your item, rather than hire
Obviously, what can be taken may be restricted by airline baggage allowances (there are sometimes advantages with travel by coach or train), although technically we suppose there is nothing (aside from ‘security restrictions’ and some potentially funny looks) to stop you from wearing your outfit on the plane! Perhaps you might choose to take some ‘core items’ and improvise the rest from local sources. Whatever you decide, if you are hiring items from us, make sure your travel insurance covers these additional non-standard holiday items, as your security deposit may not cover their replacement cost.
