Some pet owners will think that costumes on their pets are really cute and will take every opportunity to dress their pet up. Others will firmly believe that pet costumes are stupid and would never dream of dressing their pet up. Luckily for both groups it is the individual choice of the owner and each owner has the freedom to choose.
Buying or hiring a costume is a personal choice and when being considered you need to think about cost, your ability to make your own costume, and what your think the frequency of use will be. Renting can be expensive if you do it on a regular basis but buying your own costumes can also be expensive.
The consequences of you losing or damaging a rented costume will vary depending on the outlet that you used to rent the costume. Before renting a costume you should always be aware of the policy in place for lost or damaged costumes.
You've been invited to the costume party of the year, and you really want to impress with your fancy dress, and that means you need to rent a costume. That sounds fine in theory, but how can you be sure that your ultimate costume choice is clean?
