Getting dressed up for a themed party can be great fun, but choosing a costume, and making sure that you stand out while also fitting in can make things more complicated. Going as part of a group, or dressing as a couple with your date can be a fun way to make sure that you look great, feel great, and fit right in. Just be sure that your costumes are linked to the theme of the party, however loosely!
Pick a movie, any movie
If you have a movie you and your friends love, a group costume should be a no-brainer! Going with the girls? How about channelling the Pink Ladies for an evening? Do you and your friends turn back into children when you get together? Try dressing as the four Teletubbies, and you’re sure to draw the right kind of attention. We also have a selection of Star Wars costumes, although we can’t condone mass lightsaber fights, fun as they may be.
Fun for all the family
Dressing up as a family can also be a fun option, and makes for excellent photos. Our Toy Story range is sure to delight fans of all ages – mums and dads make excellent Mr and Mrs Potato Heads, while kids will love dressing up as Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Jessie. Our family-friendly Wizard of Oz costumes are show stoppers, with gorgeous outfits for Dorothy and Glinda, and convincing attire for the Scarecrow and Cowardly Lion.
Whether you’ve been married for years, or you're on your first date, a couples’ costume can be a lot of fun. Get funky and funny, and attend your next fancy dress party as the 118 118 guys, or consider going as Kermit and Miss Piggy. Whether you decide to wear matching outfits, or get dressed up as a couple from your favourite book or movie, it’s sure to be a night worth remembering.
Our group fancy dress page is sure to inspire you if you’re still not sure what to wear – our costumes range from fun, to flirty, to downright dapper.
