I am sad to announce that after 29 wonderful years, Sublime to the Ridiculous is closing. After running the business all that time I am now retiring and looking forward to a well earned rest!

From 01 January 2018, we will no longer hire out costumes to individuals but for January and February 2018 only we will be willing to provide costumes for plays and pantomimes to support local amateur dramatic societies.

Over the next few months, we will be selling off all our costumes and if you are interested in purchasing any (or all of them) then please send me an Email via the contact form on the website. Details of the types of costumes available can still be seen elsewhere on this website -

If some person or organisation is wanting to purchase and take over the business as a whole, I would be willing to consider any suitable offers. It is a wonderful opportunity for someone wishing to carry on operating an established business, so please contact me if you are interested. There are roughly 2000 costumes in all, many handmade including larger sizes. The sale will include a huge stock of hats, wigs and other accessories, and would prefer to see it go lock, stock and barrel. Please note that these are not 'packet costumes', which are obviously inferior products, and in my view there is nothing better that the real thing.

Finally, I would like to thank all my customers and the organisations that have supported me over the years and am now looking forward to the next phase of my life.
