About Us

Costumes With Character have been creating high quality bespoke costumes for over 20 years. Our client list includes Cadbury's, Harrods, Easy-Jet, Bourne Leisure, Kellogg's, Manchester United and Manchester City to name just a few. We have been involved with many high profile sporting events including the CommonWealth Games and the Austrian Winter Olympics. We pride ourselves on the exceptionally high standard and quality of costumes, which shows in our extensive high profile client list.
Our costumes are created in house at our studios in Stockport and we employ a team of experienced Designers, Prop Makers, Machinists and Sculptors to bring our Characters to life.
We create our characters so that the body of the character is completely machine washable, meaning it can easily be freshened up, they are extremely durable and long lasting. As part of our aftercare service we offer a full refurbishment service for when you feel your character needs a little T.L.C. We completely clean both the body, the head of your costume and fix any minor repairs that may occur over time. The footwear is suitable for outdoor use as they have soles attached to the bottom, again increasing durability and life of the character. Our characters are designed so that replacement parts and new outfits for the costumes are easily available. They also come with complete wear and care instructions.
