About Us


Fancydress.com was launched in 2001 as a sister company of the longest-established costume supplier in the world, Angels Costumes.

The BAFTA-winning Angels Costumes have been supplying costumes for movies, theatre productions and television for over 175 years. In 1995 Angels Costumes opened their first fancy dress store in the heart of central London on Shaftesbury Avenue, called Angels Fancy Dress. This five-story shop is not only London's No.1 emporium for everything fancy dress related, but it also provides bespoke hire outfits and costumes for all occasions.

As the popularity of Angels Fancy Dress grew, and as retail shifted to digital, Fancydress.com was born and now remains the UK's biggest online fancy dress retailer. Originally just offering 243 products online, Fancydress.com has now grown to selling over 15,000 products worldwide and is still expanding! After seeing huge success with their pet fancy dress range, Angels have recently launched Fancydogs.co.uk, a website exclusively for dog costumes and accessories.

With over 175 years of costume knowledge, it's safe to say our team at Fancydress.com are the experts in dressing-up.
