What do we love more than fancy dress here at Escapade? Knowing that you, our customers, have enjoyed wearing what you bought. We’re always trying to find new ideas or improve on current ones and who better to take inspiration from than YOU, the people who make it all happen!
If you’re happy to let us know what you think of your purchase, or better still to send us a photo of you wearing it so that our team & other customers can see how great you look, we now offer the chance to win the cost of your costume back! It’s really that simple.
There are two very simple ways to enter the competition:
1. Write a review
When you make a purchase online from Escapade, you’re given an option to review your order if you sign up to our newsletter (we’re not able to receive your review if you don’t sign up!). You’ll then get an email inviting you to let us know what you thought and even attach a picture. Everyone who submits a review gets a chance in our monthly competition.
2. Send a picture
If you missed your chance to write a review of your purchase, don’t worry! Just take a good, clear photo of you looking your best in your chosen outfit and send it to email@example.com, we’ll then enter your image into our prize-draw along with all the written content.
On the last Thursday of every month, one lucky winner will be chosen at random to receive the cost of their costume back directly from us and have their details posted on our website & Facebook page. If you’d like to take a look at the selection of the winners to date visit our competition winners page.
We hope that you enjoy wearing our creations and we look forward to hearing from you. Good luck!
