How does pricing work?

Every costume rental from Fancy Pants Costume is subject to certain fees. Rental fees are based on a one-week rental. We do not rent partial costumes or for partial weeks. Most costumes range from $50 to $150 for the week. Our higher-end costumes, such as the Venetian costumes, couture gowns, feather, and delicate one-of-a-kind pieces are rented at a substantially higher price. In addition, there is a higher required deposit when renting these pieces.

A refundable security deposit is required for all costume rentals. We refund the security deposit in full within 2 weeks of receiving the costume or costumes in the same condition in which they were sent out. Photographs are taken of each piece when it is packed for shipping. There must be no issues with rips or tears, missing pieces, stains, unrestored alterations, or damage of any kind.

We understand accidents happen; if one does, please let us know and the appropriate repair amount will be deducted from your deposit. The security deposit will be used if the costumes are returned in any of the conditions listed. If that does happen, the remainder of the security deposit can take 4 weeks to return to your charge card.

Your costume rental will include a cleaning fee, to be determined based on the costume.

Shipping costs are not included in the rental fee and will be paid by customer. A pre-paid return label will be included in the package.

Why rent?
In addition to Fancy Pants having an amazing selection of unique, custom costumes, one great reason to rent is sustainability! Rather than contributing to the waste chain with a wear-it-once item, rent and share the joy!
Fancy Pants accepts Venmo, credit cards via PayPal, or a PayPal transfer. All costume rentals are pre-paid prior to pick up or shipping.
