Fancy dress is becoming more reasonably priced than ever; yet for the uninitiated, it sometimes seems preferable to hire a costume. However, it is actually cheaper to buy an average costume than to hire its equivalent and there are also many advantages to owning a costume. Firstly, when you purchase a costume you can save cash in the long term as it can easily be re-used for different occasions and furthermore, the costume will arrive at your door in mint condition. Unfortunately, some hire costumes are often the worse for wear and have had multiple repairs. The other aspect is hygiene: although most reputable hire firms clean costumes after each use it is impossible to guarantee that a costume is completely clean and there is no way of knowing the personal hygiene standards of those who have hired it before you. Therefore, the next time you find yourself scratching your head as you consider which is the best fancy dress costume to choose for a forthcoming party, browse for some brilliant bargains here and remember the various advantages of purchasing a budget costume over hiring one. Fancy dress is all about fun, creativity and ingenuity; so as you can see a fantastic costume doesn’t have to come at a price that’s out of this world!
