Fancy Dress Hire or Fancy Dress to Buy?

When most people are asked to come to a costume party, their first thought is to find fancy dress shops and to hire a garment, have you ever thought of buying a costume instead?

In order to make the right decision for you, the best way is to go through the positive and negative points of each method.

So what are the benefits of costume hire?
Fancy dress costume hire has the advantage in that you can return the costume after the party, but this can also turn out to be a bad thing because not only do you have to pay for the hire of the costume, but you also have to then have the hassle (and the cost) of going back to the fancy dress shop to return the costume.

What are the benefits of buying a fancydress costume?
If you buy your costume from an online fancy dress shop, like Jokers' Masquerade fancy dress not only do they have a massive variety of fancy dress costumes and accessories (more than ten thousand) to choose from, so plenty of fancy dress ideas but you also don't have the hassle of having to collect the garment and then having to take it back afterwards. Don't forget often when going to a costume party, you'll be going as a couple, the great thing as there are many costumes for couples available these days.

Cheap costumes
many people also think that fancy dress hire is cheaper than buying, but this is not always true, sure there are some fancy dress outfits for sale that are expensive like the deluxe starwars costumes, but there are plenty of cheap fancy dress outfits that could cost you even less than costume hire. At a company like Jokers' Masquerade fancy dress, you can even search for costumes by budget, which is handy.

It is possible to find fancy dress hire online options, but up till now most don't offer the huge choice of costumes that you can find when you buy. What has to be one of the biggest negatives of hiring costumes especially on the web is that you can never be sure what state your costume will arrive in, buying a costume has to be the better deal because it arrives brand spanking new, in the box.

If you are also thinking of hosting a costume party, and are looking for some ideas for fancy dress themes, browsing online is a great place to quickly get loads of costume ideas.

Also remember if you decide that you don't want to wear the costume again, you could always sell it on a web site like Ebay after the fancy dress party, who knows your brand new Spiderman costume may end up making you some money!
