Angels is the undisputed doyenne of fancy dress hire for adults and children in the capital. The range – spanning everything from splendid Tudor robes to a sequinned showgirl outfit from Octopussy – and quality are unparalleled. Some of the costumes have even found their way to the six-floor hire shop from the massive collection of handmade costumes Angels has created for films over the years. The expanding range of packet costumes, sold in the shop (and via the website), are also excellent, with Playboy bunnies, sumo wrestlers and Marie Antoinettes. There’s also a selection of cheap superhero costumes for sale (Superman, Spider-Man), starting at £30.99. Outfits for hire from the shop start at £80 plus VAT and include matching accessories, plus £100 deposit.
