Rental Policy for Costumes
Prices for rentals generally cost between $5 to $250. Rentals can be paid by cash, check, or quick pay. A security deposit is required on all rentals. There is a security deposit per costume $150.00. The security deposit will be refunded upon the prompt return of the undamaged costume. The security deposit in no way reflects the actual value of the costume.
Permanent damage will consist of any tears and rips in fabrics; burns; dying or spray painting; gluing; perspiration or other stains; or all other unacceptable alterations outlined above.
Costumes not returned on the specified date are subject to a late fee of 20% of the basic rental rate per day late plus tax.
The replacement value of costumes is based on current retail value. The rental rate may be only 1% to 2% of the actual value of non-replaceable or antique items. The paid rental amount is not applicable to the replacement value.
In the event an order is cancelled, a cancellation fee determined by the extent to which work on the order has progressed will be accessed. In no event shall this be less than 50% of the value of the order. If the order is ready at the time of cancellation, the charge is full value of the order. Orders not claimed on the date scheduled are considered cancelled.

Care and maintenance
Under no circumstances can smoking or eating be allowed while in costumes since most permanent damage is a result of these activities. Should smoking or eating be required, Debut Studio must be informed prior to rental, deodorants must be used; whereas cologne, perfume or after-shave is forbidden since cleaning solvents cannot remove any of these. Women should be instructed in the proper use if trains. Any tears of rips in the hems of trains due to improper usage will constitute permanent damage. All costumes must be returned in their original state. Failure to comply will result in assessed fee.
