Edward Scissorhands

"I rented the Edward Scissorhands costume a couple of weeks ago from you for a film themed party, I promised to send a couple of pictures of the final outfit look, so here they are. (The pictures do not do the outfit justice as it was so good in real life).

Everybody loved it and commented on how fantastic and amazing it looked and I was the talk of the party, slightly taking the limelight away from the birthday boy!!

I was so pleased with the quality of the outfit and the similarity to the character was spot on. I was absolutely thrilled so thank you very much for all the help. One very happy customer, I will definitely be using your services again in the future.

Kind Regards
Ed" Nov 2015

It’s The Works always provide me with good ideas and have excellent stock to purchase and hire, the attached outfit, scarf and glasses were all purchased from you and was used for Children In Need at Santander where I delivered tea and coffee with a smile to all of my team raising plenty of money for charity, thanks to the staff for their help and assistance, always a pleasure to visit.
