Molly Limpet's is an independent company, making all fancy dress and theatrical costumes on-site at our premises here in Sheffield. Thousands of clean and professionally made hire costumes are housed in our busy, 6000 sq ft Yorkshire premises where we hire in two ways:

1. Clients are welcome to VISIT BY APPOINTMENT, or

2. WE CAN COURIER HIRE COSTUMES TO ANY UK ADDRESS via a quick and simple email/telephone booking.

Please view each of the galleries here to get hundreds of costume ideas for your parties and events. We carry thousands of quality, unique costumes and not everything is shown here, but do call or email with questions if you're looking for something in particular.

Our costumes are made by our own on-site tailors and seamstresses, and costumes are washed after EVERY hire. We are proud to hold such a wide choice of quality, clean fancy dress costumes in all size ranges. Being fitted for a costume should be fun and our 20 years of experience of dressing clients across the UK and Ireland will mean that you will be glad you chose to be dressed by Molly Limpet's of Sheffield.

Costume hire ranges between £25 to £45 for the majority of costumes, and some from our deluxe range cost between £50 and £65. The PDF catalogues in each gallery will show you the exact price of each costume.

Due to the amount of costumes we stock on site all year round, we regularly supply for large-scale events. See our Corporate Costume Hire page to see some examples of the work we've done for businesses and private clients over the years.

WHAT'S NEW ?!! July 2020

WE HAVE MOVED! We are excited to announce that when it is safe for us to re-open, we will open at our new address at Barmouth Rd (see top of page for full address). For the first time in our twenty-year history, our collection of 30,000+ costumes will be in one building, and will make us one of the largest costume collections under one roof outside of London. We can't wait to show you and continue to provide you with great service, quality and value.

When we re-open, we will be operating our fancy dress department by appointment only. You will be offered a one-hour time slot (plenty of time) free of charge; the only cost is your costume hire. This is, in part, inspired by social-distancing (the new norm) but will also allow us to give even more focused service than ever before. Simply call to book your appointment time.

As a company that designs and produces all costumes on-site (nothing is ordered in from overseas) we would very much appreciate your custom post-lockdown. All costumes are washed after every hire (inc hats and boot coverings etc). We will adapt our policy by no longer hiring feathers as these cannot be washed, but strict care will be taken to ensure that each garment is quarantined after use, then washed, then quarantined again, before being offered for the next hire.
