And They’re OFF – 5 Awesome Sporting Costumes

Posted on January 18, 2013 by admin

From the Super Bowl to the Grand National and the Royal Rumble to the return of Premier League darts, sports fans are in for an action-packed start to 2013.

There are some big events coming your way over the next few months and plenty of opportunities to get dressed up like some of your favourite sporting icons.

Icons like charismatic former tennis star John McEnroe.

The Australian Open is now in full swing – if you’ll pardon the lame pun – and the likes of Andy Murray are hoping to impress Down Under.

Murray will be hoping to emulate McEnroe’s achievements in the game during his career, although the Scot will probably want to avoid the kind of on-court rant that made the American so famous.

McEnroe, of course, is perhaps best remembered for him infamous ‘You Cannot Be Serious’ tirade and his big bushy hair and headband make him one of the most instantly-recognisable sportsmen ever.

Horses have been in the headlines recently for one reason or another – in fact, it’s been the mane news item! Parp.

Joking aside, the Grand National and Cheltenham Gold Cup are fast approaching and hundreds of thousands of horse racing fans will descend on Liverpool and Cheltenham respectively, some of whom will be decked out in fancy dress.

Here’s a bit of inspiration if you’re off to the races soon or just want to wear a costume that lives in the memory furlong.

Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeefence! Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeefence! New Orleans hosts this year’s Super Bowl and you cannot beat the razzmatazz of NFL.

Here’s an American football kit with a difference – quite a gruesome difference.

Staying Stateside, Royal Rumble 2013 sees a host of butch wrestlers battle it out in one ring.

Although two-time Royal Rumble winner Hulk Hogan has now hung up his jockstrap for the final time, his legacy lives on – especially in this little ensemble.

Did you watch the darts over Xmas at Ally Pally? Awesome arrows!

And the great news is that we don’t have to wait long to see the likes of new world champion Phil Taylor in action as Premier League darts starts next month and airs every Thursday night.
