Hire or Stock Item Customers are recommended to order at least 2-10 days before the item is needed. Customised items can take anything from 28 days (standard) to even 1.5 YEARS for Film Contract items.These are ordered under special terms. While our Cosplay items are under development, we ask that you the customer tell us well in advance of when you need the item. Our cosplay items will be ready for general Stock sales in the first week of September 2023. This is because we supply Film, Theatre and Public Event Organisers generally first, before any  individual discerning customer request , from our hire stock in order to meet our Charitable Ethos and guidelines. However we have a hefty stock and usually items are available straight away, upon request.

Some items are non-refundable, like, for example,hosiery, stage make-up or underwear. This is due to hygiene reasons and such items are dispatched to you the customer, in sealed packs, and if the seals are broken or opened upon return of these items,then they cannot be refunded and are unreturnable to us. Any items supplied whether used or not, are deemed to have been hired under the hire deal that was agreed before any of the despatches in any one order. We cannot  therefore refund on any items deemed not to be used by the customer as any items supplied under a hire contract are deemed to be used in a hire regardless of whether or not they are worn or used in any production , event or individual hire.

We have a goodwill policy of helping customers with return postage.We often pay 30% ( in cases where we have not charged postage for dispatches) and up to 100% of the return costs. We pay this upon return of the item first (where the customer initially pays the return cost, and we reimburse it) . The only exceptions to this are: 

a) if the items being returned are not presented to us in a saleable, decent condition (for instance, if the package is torn and the items have been badly damaged as a result)

b) if the items have, in fact not been returned at all

c) if there was a failure on the customer's part to enter his or her company's or individual's correct postal and customer details at the checkout gate (time of ordering)

d) we do not imburse delivery costs at weekends - only from Monday to Friday inclusive, during any week

e) If the items are in dispute, beyond our control , we cannot refund them. A reason will be provided to the customer on receipt of the returns form.

Postal fees are deducted from any refunds for items not returned to us within 14 days. We aim to make refunds inside 14  to 28 days (28 days for group hire items)  of your item(s) being returned to us. Any returned items not displaying the information required  on the returns form will cause an unavoidable delay in the returns process.

The cancellation period starts on placement of your order and ends 14 days from the receipt of your goods. If you, as the customer, change your mind after purchase, there is no automatic right to return the goods to us, but we do listen to you and are willing to offer alternatives or refunds, or refunds , only as appropriate. The items are on display and in an emailed contract of  transaction with agreed terms. This is done before the goods are dispatched. The items are sold as pictured on our sales website here: https:/startheatrecompany.uk, so any refunds need to be addressed via logging in as a customer and /or emailing your request to us or returning your completed  Returns Form to us.


A NON-COMPETE or DISCLOSURE ORDER FORM  must be signed with the purchase OR HIRE document if you are a Competitor or in the same trade as STAR THEATRE/STAR COSTUMES and if you require special permission garments. Details are on the shop pages. Please register on the site here as a new user and we will email you the forms. We look forward to doing business with you.
