2015: A Look Ahead… Part 2! Comments Off on 2015: A Look Ahead… Part 2!

2015- A Look Ahead (1)

Welcome to the second part of our look ahead to 2015, where we share all of the fantastic fancy dress opportunities going on…

July

July 1st is Canada Day, Canada’s national day. Dress as a mountie, or another famous Canadian… like… er… Avril Lavigne! The second is World UFO Day, so there is plenty of scope for alien costumes, and then it’s International Tiger Day on the 29th. Rawr!

August

August is a great month for fancy dress: the 8th is International Cat Day, and if you want to go a little more hardcore, the 10th is World Lion Day! If cats aren’t your thing, the 26th is Dog Day too! If you’re not into dressing as an animal, dust off the Christmas costumes and celebrate Be An Angel Day on the 22nd.

September 

September is Chicken Month! It’s possibly not practical to dress as a chicken all month… but for part of it? If you’re not really feeling the love for the chicken costumes, what about waiting for Teddy Bear Day on the 9th? The 13th is Roald Dahl Day, which is definitely something to look forward to. Of course, everyone knows the 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day – obviously, you’ll already have that one marked on your calendar. And then, we round off the month of fancy dress fun on the 26th with Lumberjack Day!

October

As the weather turns colder, the fancy dress outfits become more fun, right? October has plenty of opportunities for bonkers fancy dress outfits, with World Farm Animals Day on the 2nd, and World Animal Day on the 4th. Then we have Mad Hatter Day on the 6th, World Octopus Day on the 8th and a definite favourite: Punk for a Day Day on the 25th! Of course, October is also the fancy dress high-point of the year, with Halloween on the 31st! We always look forward to this one!

November

November is fairly quiet for fancy dress, aside from the obvious Guy Fawkes Night. The 3rd is Jellyfish Day – that would be a fun costume to put together! And the 10th is Sesame Street Day; which character will you dress as?

December

December is a fantastic month for fancy dress. Aside from all the festive fancy dress opportunities, there is World Wildlife Conservation Day on the 4th – why not dress as a panda? International Day of the Ninja is on the 5th; the 14th is Monkey Day, and the 21st is International Dalek Remembrance Day. Imagine the fun you could have getting a costume together for that one!

 

And there we have it: 2015 in a nutshell. We hope you’ll stick around and see what else is going on through the course of the year!

Now that Halloween is over for another year, we’re left with the short two month run up to Christmas. Aside from frantic Christmas shopping and decorating the house, the Yuletide season also brings with it an abundance of parties.

So to help you prepare for the Christmas party season, we’ve put together a list of fabulous make-up ideas, from subtle and elegant looks for the office party to styles that will add drama to your Christmas costume.

One of the best ways to glam up Christmas-style this season is experimenting with shimmering eye shadow and bright colours. Checkout this video tutorial on how to get this glittery look!

 

 

If you’re thinking of going for a bolder styles then why not experiment with red eye shadows for a more dramatic look?

Using a combination of sparkling eyeliner and bold green and pink shadows will give you this fantastic effect.

If you’re thinking of going for something a little more subtle (yet glittery), then try this gold-themed look using a combination of gold eye shadow, false eyelashes and subtle eyeliner wings.
