If you need a truly fancy costume then I can recommend Prangsta. They did me a nice gentleman traveller getup for the White Mischief steampunk night, with a vintage suit, waistcoat, top hat etc. The staff were very helpful. It looks like the range of dresses, corsets and masks they have for the ladies is even more impressive.

However, renting from them is quite expensive, so this is for... more

Napoleon, Mr. Darcy, Pin-up, Lady of the Mannor, they have it all!

Wow heaven - if you are looking for a fantastic costume made by a true professional Costumier then stop by Prangsta and visit Mel.

This isn't cheap and cheerful, don't bother if you want a space man or Darth Vadar suit, this is the real thing. View the website to get a great idea of what you're aiming for.

If you fancy learning to sew then ask them about their excellent classes that Mel... more
