Your credit card will be checked for fraud risk during checkout.
If the method of payment fails verification it is within our rights to decide whether to take your payment. If you show as high risk you will be reported.
Product specifications, prices, ship dates and availability are subject to change without notice. Product prices include full packaging. Tax and shipping is calculated at checkout. Customs charges may be extra.
Items on pre-order are yet to be released from the manufacturer or are yet to be available from the supplier. All pre-order dates are provided by the manufacturer/supplier, and are subject to change without notice. They may be pushed forward or backward, and this is entirely in the control of the manufacturer. We update customers as soon as we receive updates.
Back Order / Temporarily out of Stock
Items that go on back order may or may not have an ETA. We have no control over the time delays therein. Due to the extensive range of our products, we have a high volume that are not regularly stored in our warehouses. These are also set to back order.
Due to rapid sales, our stock inventory system does not currently use automated warnings for all products. Items may occasionally be out of stock/sold out and therefore no longer available for purchase. If this occurs, you are automatically eligible to order an alternative product up to 110% of the original value or a full refund of the product value minus exchange fees. Availability will always be confirmed at time of purchase.
In the event that our chosen Print-on-demand provider has discontinued the item, and no alternative can be found, you will be refunded. Discontinued items may be re-listed at a later date if we find a replacement service.
Our payment systems are secure and reliable. If there are any problems with your payment, or any technical issues with our payment system, it will be in the discretion of the payment system to resolve the issue and reimburse you. All our payment systems deal with all chargebacks/refunds according to their own terms and conditions. Please refer to the terms and conditions of the respective payment systems you have used should you have any complaint. The resolution will be dealt with amicably.
Credit card fees and currency exchange fees are included in item price. They are not recoverable by us from our payment gateway. We regret we cannot refund these charges, hence your refund will be minus this amount. (usually only a few %)
The Costume Portal/Katerina Payments
Customer pays in full, or weekly, on receipt of Invoice from Square or by VIABILL. Due to every costume being custom made, we accept VIABILL as payment however you will still need to wait until we have made your costume before it's sent. If you choose to pay by VIABILL instead of Square Payments, you will also receive it faster since we will be able to set to work on it immediately.
If you clear the remaining balance early, your item/s will not ship until work has been completed. Please allow 12-24 weeks average for costume construction. We will email photo updates regularly.
Items are non-refundable, as these are custom orders.
Where available, estimated delivery times are stated in checkout when choosing a shipping method.
We ship from multiple locations worldwide, so we may not be able to consolidate your order as many of our suppliers have their own shipping department, with different shipping methods and rates. Each item in your order may be shipped separately.
Replacement insurance and product guarantees.
Where possible, electronics come with guarantees. Most of our collectibles come with certificates of authenticity, and will say in the item description. Where possible, shipping includes insurance to the full value of the item which can be claimed in the event of an item going missing in the post.
Items may also become damaged or lost while in transit. Errors in delivery address or courier mistakes have been known to happen on occasion. All shipments include insurance to minimize this risk, however we ask that customers are patient, especially for international orders where Customs may create further delays.
PLEASE NOTE SOME ITEMS ARE ILLEGAL IN CERTAIN COUNTRIES.
Some items cannot be shipped internationally by our suppliers. We have listed these items for sale as we are willing to ship these to you provided you are willing to pay the shipping costs. These items are listed under 'Restricted Shipping' (See Shipping, above, for terms). These items require shipping costs to be confirmed before a final invoice will be sent by email. You will be charged a shipping deposit, which can be as much as 100% of the order total extra, and is set by our supplier. The remainder will be refunded back to you after shipping. The final quote is non negotiable.
If shipping seems high, you are welcome to email us at checkout and query it. We'll double check it for you and always try to provide you the best quote, especially if you have a large or heavy item in your order. We reserve the right to alter or raise shipping costs, or change shipping methods as and when services are available.
Cinestore products are set by default to only ship by Fedex (Free Shipping included). This is because our primary supplier for movie merchandise uses Fedex for all USA shipments.
To ship to some countries, there are customs charges added before the item leaves the USA. In some countries, some items are entirely illegal, for example France and Spain, and cannot be shipped at all. These items WILL NOT be shipped to you and payment will be refunded.
Your shipment may be subject to extra customs checks. This is because high risk objects such as knives, swords may occasionally require additional customs checks to ensure the safety of the destination country it is being shipped to. Customs charges are payable on delivery of the shipment to you. On non-payment of customs charges, your delivery will be returned to the depot. Should this happen we regret we cannot refund you. Please be aware of this possibility when you purchase any weapon from us.

Full insurance and tracking included.(UPS and FedEX only insure up to $500, items over this value will be sent by USPS) If you are paying full or there are no payment terms on the item, these are shipped within 7 days, depending on your location.
We do not accept refunds on the basis that a package is taking too long to arrive at any of our warehouses. Once you have accepted our terms and conditions, completed checkout and we receive payment, no refunds will be accepted unless the item is damaged on arrival or the wrong item was sent (in which case it will be up to the supplier to decide if they will accept a return.)
Refunds are subject to the individual supplier's discretion, and dealt with on a case by case basis. We regret we cannot refund postage. Do not return items without emailing us first. We will confirm return address should you need it.
