Double page feature on Fancy Dress Fanatics in Party Party Magazine

We're chuffed to bits to appear in another issue of Party Party magazine, and this time, a big double page spread interview!

The Editor, Caroline Simpson, contacted us a while back to see if we'd be interested in being interviewed, and we were delighted. The interview included questions about our Start-Up loan, the best bits of starting our own business, our plans for the future and plenty more. To view the issue please click here (you'll find us on pages 20 and 21).

Reading it back is brilliant. You just don't realise how far you've come until you do something like this. We're chuffed to bits to have come so far, having only opened 6 months ago!

If you'd like more information on us, our shop, and what we do, take a look at our website, where you'll find pictures of most of our hire costumes (we're always adding to them),  information about us and even a video tour of our shop!

you can also keep up to date with news, great fancy dress ideas and future blogs by following us on twitter, or 'liking' our facebook page:

Costumes beginning with the letter 'S'

The next in our series of blogs on costumes A-Z, perfect for those ever increasing 'come as something beginning with letter of the alphabet' themes, here's a huge list of ideas for fancy dress beginning with 'S'

Some are easily put together with bits at home, some more elaborate and needing to buy or hire, but hopefully there's enough here to inspire you with the perfect costume solution!

Got any ideas to add to the list? Pop a comment on this post with your own additions and we'll add them!
