Caring for kids’ costumes

Kids don’t exactly go easy on their clothes, let alone a costume where they’re acting as Spiderman or The Incredible Hulk.

Kids’ costumes can be subjected to anything from food and drink spills to grass stains and goodness knows what else. Buying a costume for your kid will save you living in fear of your kid wrecking a hired costume, so that is something to consider.

Why hire a kids costume when you can buy?

You can find cute dress up clothes for kids in just about any department or toy store. Costumes are often reasonably priced and come in the standard sizes.

Buying a costume outright can prove more economical than hiring one, especially if you consider cleaning costs. Plus, you can always pass the costume on to younger siblings or friends.

If you’re looking for something a little different to the standard Disney Princess, superhero or doctor and nurse costumes available in stores, there’s a huge range of costume shops online that sell rather than hire kids’ costumes.

Remember – if you’re feeling a little crafty there’s also always the option of making your own Brisbane kids costume!

The downside of buying a costume is that your kids grow quickly so they might not get much wear out of it, so hiring can be economical.
