How do I search this website?
You can search for an item in various ways until you find exactly what you’re looking for.

We’ve designed our website to provide simple navigation and to suit your preferred choice of browsing. Select a category from the left hand menu. Each category contains various themes to refine your search.

Alternatively, if you know exactly what you’re looking for, type the product i.e. ‘superman’ or product code into our search box (top right of the page) and we will return you all the items related to your search.

Once you have found what you’re looking for, simply click the ‘add to basket’ button. Once you’ve finished shopping, select ‘view basket’ and follow the step by step instructions to enter delivery and payment details to complete your purchase.

If you are experiencing difficulties browsing our website, please contact us and we will do our very best to assist.

Do you have a catalogue I can buy from?
With over 10,000 items on the site at any one time and new products being added weekly, it would be simply impossible to produce a paper catalogue. Not only is a catalogue out of date soon after printing, just think of the costs to the environment. Instead we believe that an up to date website is where we should focus our energy and provide our customers with the opportunity to view the latest costumes online 365 days a year.

If you have any doubts about shopping online, as the retailer we work hard to ensure our website is safe and our systems are secure to protect your purchase.
I have bought an item recently but have noticed the price has changed
As an online retailer we act quickly in adjusting our pricing in response to costume trends, availability of stock and demands from our customers. Unfortunately we are unable to refund any difference in price.

Do I need to register an account to buy from you?
Yes! Creating an account allows you to buy from us without continually filling in details each time you shop at Fancy Dress Ball. Additional benefits allow you to review your previous orders, order tracking, and receive regular newsletters and exclusive promotional offers and discounts.

You can sign up now or begin shopping then register your details once you’ve found everything you’re looking to buy. Just follow the easy registration steps on screen and have a method of payment and delivery address ready.

Don’t forget that when you register and sign up to our monthly newsletter, you will be automatically entered into our monthly prize draw for the chance to win a FREE costume. Please click here for more details.

Do you have a SIZE CHART?
We know just how frustrating it is to buy a costume and it not fit properly. Please see our size chart for guide measurements of costumes.

We are often asked by our customers what size costume to order. Many of our suppliers design fancy dress costumes to cover multiple sizing by including elastic seems. If you are in-between sizes, our advice would be to order the next size up as it's easier to alter a costume rather than it being too tight.

I would like to know more about an item before I purchase
We try to provide as much useful information about all our products, to help you buy items that suit you best. The product page for every item includes a detailed description and available sizes, and most importantly plenty of detailed images.

If you need any further information other than what's on the product page, please contact us and let us know just what further information you wish to see. We will do our best to include this.

How do I sign up for the newsletter and promotions?
