We love sport here at Fancy Dress Ball… by which mean, we love to dress up in sporty fancy dress, and perhaps watch some sport on TV from the comfort of our living room! The TV is optional, to be honest. We’re all about the fancy dress outfits really.
Everyone loves sport; the whole country came together to watch the Olympics in 2012. There’s something about watching someone succeed at the thing they’ve been training their entire lives for that’s very moving - whether that’s running, cycling, swimming or gymnastics… or even darts or pool!
The thing about sport fancy dress is that there’s so much to choose from! There’s running, obviously, and we have a great marathon runner costume. But also, darts counts as a sport! So we also have a dartboard costume… and a pool table - for men and for women! And Subbuteo costumes too, because really, everyone knows that Subbuteo is the ultimate sporting challenge. And what could be more retro chic than dressing as a tiny man on a small stand?
If boxing is more your thing, you could go to your party dressed as a boxer… or perhaps a Teenie Weenies boxer is more up your street. Or a kangaroo boxer! We have such a wide range; you could also be a jockey, a golfer, a rodeo cowboy or even the Stig or a sumo wrestler. Or, for the man who prefers to be a little more “physical,” how about going as Olivia Newton John from that iconic 1981 music video… don’t pretend you don’t know which one we mean! And of course, there’s something for the gleeks among us! What would Sue Sylvester do? She’d wear a red tracksuit and blow her whistle!
If you’d rather your sporty was a little more naughty, we have a muff diver outfit, or a ring toss with a difference!
If your idea of sport is a little more… low key, why not be the ultimate in low key, and dress as a ninja? 2-4-6-8, who do we appreciate! We appreciate that you can’t have sport without cheerleaders - so we have cheerleader costumes for men and for women, so as to not leave anyone out!
