How did Rosies Costumes get started?

Rosie’s Costumes began in 1994 as Costumeworld, a hobby business creating and hiring childrens fancy dress costumes, run by Rosie and a friend. It was taken on fully by Rosie  in 1998 and was renamed Classic Costume Hire. Rosie’s Costumes came into being in 2006 and is still fully owned and operated by Rosie Randell.

Originally started to cater to children’s costumes, demand for adult costumes soon created a new market.  This also prompted the decision to sell the majority of the children’s costumes in 2004 and keeping a small range of some 75 childrens costumes today. The adult costume range continues to grow with one off unique costumes and we currently have over 600 costumes for hire in the range. This is continually increasing as costumes are introduced to the range, updated or renewed.

“Rosies Costumes was a hobby that has become a bit of an addiction. I love being able to find the right costume to make that persons fancy dress event a memorable one, and often the first costume tried on is the one chosen. The customer needs to be comfortable enough to be wearing the costume all night. I see myself in another 15 years time still doing ‘the costumes’ as I just love it! It brings out the little girl in me. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.”

Fancy dress for hire has never been easier.
