Hello and welcome to Fancy Pants Emporium

Costume Hire Studio & Design Workshop

During lockdown, we made the sad decision to leave the shop in Stone Street and relocate to our home address in order to both keep the costume hire business viable and expand on the ideas we'd always had but had never had the space or time to do.   After 7 months of hard work, we are finally ready to relaunch our new and improved set up and location!  There is still some building work to do to completely finish our vision, so we ask people to please bear with us when visiting.  But we are in a position to be able to open up the hire side of things again from the 5th.  We appreciate that costume hire is something that is going to be very slow for the foreseeable future while we deal with this pandemic and it's constantly changing guidelines, but we want people to know that we are here for you – ready to help you party when it’s both possible to and appropriate again.

With this in mind, we have decided to diversify and adapt.  So to compliment the costume hire side of the business, we will be developing the creative side of Fancy Pants Emporium Ltd.  We now have an incredible new workshop where we will be creating all sorts of new things!  As well as costume design and the seamstress/alterations service & fabric face coverings we are known for, we will also be offering a 3D printing service, printing our own t-shirts, fabric, mugs, bags & stickers etc and creating a range of upcycled items and clothing for sale.

We will obviously be observing all necessary guidelines to be in compliance with safeguarding against Covid-19 and will be operating online as much as possible. The hiring process will have to change a little and all will be explained in our revised Terms & Conditions which will be made available upon contact, in the shop and with your hire form. All visits are on a strict appointment only basis in order to keep within the current gathering number restrictions. We also have to be respectful of the fact that we are now based at our home address, so can’t operate as a drop in. Therefore if you need us for anything, please either call or email via the contact details above and we can book you in.
