About us


Hello and welcome to our online store, if you have come to this page then I guess you are looking to learn a little about us. Hollywood Fancy Dress is a family run business that takes great pride in the fact that it offers a fantastic selection of quality fancy dress costumes. Our three family friendly stores on the south coast of England not only sell fancy dress but have a team that are fans of it themselves. The first store opened at the Castle Lane site in 1985 and started as a hire costume and balloon shop although the business and premises soon expanded as the business went from strength to strength.

We now sell fancy dress costumes at all of our sites but the core business has grown so that we now hire from a range of over five thousand hire costumes and have a fully qualified team of balloon decorators that travel to your chosen venue and decorate Weddings, Birthdays and Corporate Events etc.

In 2006 we expanded online and our shops and online 24 hour store now carry literally 10's of thousands of products to suit all occasions and because our team understand the business we also understand how important these occasions can be. Further expansion saw us open a further store in Bournemouth in 2010 and then shortly after we took over another long term family business 'Just For Fun' that had been serving Southampton with Fancy Dress for over 30 years.

Hollywood Fancy Dress brings a whole lotta fun to however, whenever and wherever you party because at Hollywood we know that Fancy Dress is no joke......
