AbFab is once again closed for business until the government see fit to lift lockdown! Anyone with costumes to return or any questions, I'm still here to help and to serve you if I can from home (Philippa 07833 621115)! Can still sell and hire at a distance if you need something! Stay safe everyone.

We have all the best UV Neon and Glow in the Dark face and body paints (lipstick and nail varnish too!).

Fantastic little shop with the most amazing, enthusiastic service. The lady really helped build the look for each of us and couldn’t have been kinder or more fun! Will definitely be heading back here the next time we need a temporary identity change!

Found this wonder online as I needed the Freddie costume - one of my best decisions in a long time! Friendly staff, and the opportunity to try the costume on in advance a definite plus! I will be back (I'll be needing Freddie again quite soon...).
