Fancy Dress Costume Ideas II


The following are some useful websites with excellent costumes for sale, or with lists of unusual costume ideas:

Some specific examples of costumes from ReadyMade (slightly altered by me) are as follows:

- Freudian Slip: Wear a slip dress and a Dr Freud name tag, and carry an unlit cigar. Then corner people on a couch.

- Ever wondered what Ronald McDonald does during off-hours? How does he live when not filming ads or scaring small children? Maybe he sports a trench coat and trolls the seedier side of town, brandy in hand. Live your Mac Daddy fantasy. Materials: red wig, face paint, McDonalds Logo

- Surrealist painter: Wear painter’s pants or overalls and a painters cap turned backwards. Carry a brush glued full of plastic flowers. If you do impressions, you could be an impressionist painter…ba dum tish!

- The American tourist is easy to imitate. White socks and sandals are a must-have. Add Bermuda shorts and a short-sleeve button-down shirt (preferably Hawaiian) and the transformation is complete.

- Cereal killer: Stab a cereal box with a dull knife and tape it in place, with fake blood around the ‘wound’. Strap the box to your chest. Alternatively, I have actually seen someone print out and make a giant cereal box (which they wear), and then make a paper mache knife covered in aluminium foil to carry around.

- Just wrap yourself in bubble wrap and be 'Bubble Wrap Man!'

- Fallen angel: Make yourself a tarnished halo from a wire hanger. Wear a toga with burn marks, and slits in the back where your wings have been clipped.
 
- Paparazzi: Carry a fake press pass and as many cameras as you can carry. Take photos of people all night.
 
- Pyscho killer: They look like everyone else!

It looks like a lot of work has gone into that costume.

Fancy Dress Party Costumes are exciting and fun to wear, but not always the easiest outfits to create. So you may want to start planning a good few weeks in advance. Typically, people dress up a little more for fancy dress parties, so you may want to put together a Fancy Dress Costume that is both unique and a little more formal. Or you can pick a costume that isn't necessarily more formal but that will look good beside the fancier more expensive costumes.To get more information visit us at:-Fancy dress costume.
