Fantastic St Patrick’s Day Costumes

s Day Fancy Dress

 

Tomorrow is St Patrick’s Day, when we all traditionally remember our Irish roots – however distant or imagined!  St Patrick’s Day is the Irish national day, but since Irish people have emigrated to countries all over the globe. it’s an international celebration. Here are 5 great costume ideas:

1. Leprechaun
Well, obviously! A leprechaun is a type of fairy in Irish folklore, known for being mischievous. Leprechauns are usually depicted wearing a green jacket and hat, often with a large brass buckle.  A leprechaun is a great choice for St Patrick’s Day Fancy Dress as you’re expected to be up to mischief and giggling  – perfect for lots of fun!

 

2. A Pint of the Black Stuff
If there’s one thing we associate with Ireland, it’s black Irish stout (mentioning no brand names). It’s often said you won’t get a proper pint of the black stuff outside of Ireland, where it will take several minutes to pour. Outside of Ireland, Irish people are forever telling bar staff where they’re going wrong! Why not dress as a pint, and delight in showing everyone just how much you know about Irish stout!

 

3. A Smart Suit
Why not buck the trend of silly, over-sized hats and go for something a little more classy? We love this Oppo Suit because it allows you to get into the spirit of celebrations without going too overboard – and whilst retaining a certain element of style you would find it hard to keep whilst dressed as a tiny green leprechaun!

 

4. Green Wig
If full St Patrick’s Day fancy dress is a little much for you on a Tuesday evening, why not just opt for a comedy green wig, and perhaps some novelty shades? You’re dressed up enough to gain entry to the party, but it’s minimal effort and fuss – and more importantly, won’t get in the way of a drink!

 

5. Green!
In massive contrast to Number 4, the option for those who don’t reall want to get into it, we present the option for someone who really wants to get into the spirit of the celebration! Buy some face and body paint (you might need more than one pot) and paint to your heart’s content. Wear whatever outfit takes your fancy, and accessorise with comedy hats, novelty sunglasses, wigs, whatever you fancy. You’ll definitely be the highlight of the St Patrick’s Day evening!
