Costumes Galore

While Halloween is growing in popularity,
fancy dress parties are popular year-round in the UK.

If you are in need of inspiration, plan a visit to Angels Costumes, the world’s largest collection of costumes and accessories. They have over 8 miles of hanging racks and 1 million items. Angels provides garments, accessories and services to a wide range of productions, movies, and events including West End shows, Madame Tussauds, The Globe Theatre and blockbuster movies. Oscar® award-winning costume credits include:

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel & Shakespeare in Love (2015)
  • The Great Gatsby (2014)
  • Alice in Wonderland (2011)
  • Gladiator (2000)
  • Titanic (1997)
  • The Last Emperor (1988)
  • Ghandi (1982)
To get a feel of how Angels works, book a two-hour 'Behind the Seams' tour of their Garrick Road location where you will see departments such as alterations, jewellery*, tailoring and uniforms. There is also a book by the same name available for purchase that chronicles Angels' 175-year history as a family business spanning seven generations.

Not surprisingly that the world's largest costume company also boasts the largest fancy dress* selection. Over 10,000 costumes are available for purchase and hire* in store and on-line. If you can't find it here — you might not be able to find it anywhere!
