With purchases, we are happy to exchange for a different size/style as long as it’s in stock, if the item you want is not in stock and we need to order it in, there will be a $15 re-stocking fee, you will need to courier the item back to us and pay for the courier to send the new item to you,  or we are happy to leave a store credit here – valid for 6 months, but we do not offer refunds.  No credit given for courier charges..

There might be some colour variation due to lighting/computer/fabric.

Sales for the ex-rentals/clearance/sale items are as-is and final – no returns.

Around holiday periods please be sure to check our hours under t&c’s or read “important note” in your cart

When purchasing costumes as a general rule if the costume is over $99 its most likely a licensed product/quality branded costume, if under $95 its most likely to be a generic cheaper version (unless stated), in which case the photo may differ to the actual product slightly, we do this so you have a choice-NOTE-we are going to be clearing out all of the cheaper imitation costumes and just stick to selling the quality branded costumes. The ex-rentals are generally a used version of the quality branded costumes as we use those for our hires.

All of our shoes for sale are the Pleaser brand, well known for being great quality, comfortable and stylish, we don’t keep every shoe in stock, please allow 5-15 working days for these to arrive, if you need these asap please phone 075435361/021996557 to see if they’re in stock 🙂 The US sizes run a bit on the small side eg. a US 10 would be equivalent to a NZ 9 – we will always email you to confirm the size, if you need to return them or we need to re-order from the USA because the size is wrong there will be a $35 re-stocking charge and you will need to pay the courier charge to post the new pair to you. Sometimes the styles/sizes available can change without any notice, if you want a particular style/size please contact us first to make sure it’s still available, otherwise we will let you know asap. There might be a slight difference in colour with some styles due to lighting. There may be the odd imperfection (scuff/tiny mark/glue) on the shoes from manufacture or being on display. Disclaimer-Once they’ve been worn we are unable to exchange or refund the shoes, the life of the shoe will vary dramatically depending on wear (dancing/polework etc) so we are unable to guarantee their life.
