Fancy Dress Shop or Hire near Schaffhausen?

Does anyone know of any fancy dress places either to buy or hire. I need to get a costume for a theme event on Friday. I spent the weekend in the UK, bought myself a costume and stupidly left it behind

I won't be able to get down to Zurich as I know there's a few places there, as it's going to be a full on week with long hours. I've been googling like crazy but can't find any online shops in this country. Does anyone know of any or where I could get myself a costume locally?

Many thanks

There is a fancy dress shop on Shaffhauserstrasse!! i pass it everyday and always love looking at the costumes in the window! Unfortunately i am one of those people who loves to look around but doesnt really pay attention to names of places so i cant give you the name of it! its on the same street the number 14 tram goes along, im sorry this isnt very detailed but i promise its there!!

Good luck with your costume hunting!

Re: Fancy Dress Shop or Hire near Schaffhausen?

Well Schaffhauserstrasse is unfortunately in Zürich, not in Schaffhausen.

There is this place across the river in Feuerthalen. They seem to have "nice" as well as "fancy" dress... There must be a few more places. I grew up out there and while I never hired outfits myself, friends of mine regularly did... Before they had cars, so they cant have gone all too far!

Tried the yellowpages or search.ch? The term you'e probably looking for is "Fasnacht" or "Fasnachtsartikel" - that seems to b e the main occasions for locals to get dressed up. Across the river the local event is called "Hilari" by the way, their version of Fasnacht. Try searching for that...
