About us


Incognito closed down due to retirement on Saturday 3rd February. Costumes will still be stored in the shop for a period of time so can still be purchased however viewing will be by appointment only. If you are interested in buying a costume or buying in bulk then please call 07722194260 or 07486891537 to arrange a viewing. (The site will be updated when no longer available). So get in touch still if you require a costume.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my customers who have hired over the past 14 years. It has been a pleasure to provide costumes all over Teesside, Sunderland and Durham.


Best Wishes

Customer comments.....

"Would highly recommend Incognito for hiring costumes, Ive used them on several occasions and have found staff very helpful and accomodating, costumes are excellent quality and there is something for everyone. I wouldnt go anywhere else!"  Jayne


"This is my second visit to Incognito and again the staff helped me find a suitable costume for myself and my husband. There is so much to choose from and everyone I tried on had a fresh smell of washing powder which proves costumes are clean. I would definately recommend Incognito" Deb
