What do I do if I notice there’s a problem with my hired headpiece before I’ve worn it?
We thrive to keep our Headpieces in the best condition possible but if you notice any substantive faults with
the piece after you have collected it please let us know as soon as possible.
What will happen if I return the headpiece damaged or if I lose all or part of it?
While normal cleaning is included in the hire fee we will charge an additional cleaning/repair fee if the costume is excessively soiled, damaged or needs to be repaired when it comes back to us. We will discuss this fee with you when the headpiece is returned; most damage can be repaired within the value of the security deposit provided.
Face paints, fake blood, tanning lotion and such compounds are likely to leave permanent stains on headpieces. Makeup is removable in most instances and won’t cause permanent stains. If a headpiece is returned stained by face paint or other products: We will charge, a cleaning fee from the security deposit if we cannot clean the headpiece properly.
You will be charged the replacement cost to us of any Hired Headpiece that is not returned.
