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 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 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 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!


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 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 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!

If the heat of the summer sun isn’t the best reason ever for a really great fancy dress event, we’ll eat our ridiculous adult fancy dress pirate hats (the big ones with the feather in!).

Here are a few of our picks of the day for the best in summery (revealing!) 80s fancy dress outfits!

Ladies Fancy Dress
Flash the flesh ladies! Summery 80s fancy dress is all about revealing those bits of you hidden away during the winter months. Show off your pins in a neon tutu 80s party girl outfit, or channel your inner 80s characters in a Baywatch swimsuit (for the brave!), Wonderwoman costume, as Dale from Flash Gordon or in the super cute Starburst Girl costume!

If you’re not spirited away by any of our 80s costumes, don’t forget to check out the 80s accessory section to help create your own!

80s Lets Get Physical Girl Costume

Mens Fancy Dress
The 80s were a crazy decade for male clothing choices – we salute the 80s for making fancy dress what it is today! It’s time to bare all and indulge your secret fantasies to be a shirtless hair metal maniac (it’s all about the wig!), punk god, Village People Indian or pimped-out 80s rapper (gold lame all the way!)

We stock tons of 80s costumes and accessories for you to get your teeth into! Choose from our massive online selection to make your summer fancy dress event the best of the year (until Halloween, that is!)

There’s something about adult fancy dress events that brings out the silly side in all of us! Careful study on our part (throwing lots of fancy dress parties!) means we’ve glimpsed into the very heart and soul of all you costume enthusiasts, and we’ve noticed one of the funnest (if that’s not a real word then it darn well should be!) things you guys like to do when that invitation drops onto the doormat is let your fingers do the running to our online store in search of the silliest, most over the top men’s fancy dress costumes around!

Did we mention how popular women’s fancy dress is with guys? There’s something about being a dude and dressing as a dame for a fancy dress event that brings out the brilliant ridiculousness in guys!

Mr Miss World Costume

Our “Little Britain” section features three of our favourite female men’s character fancy dress costumes – Vicky Pollard, Desiree and Bubbles. We dare even the manliest of men not to fall into character as the zip comes up on that Vicky Pollard tracksuit top – Yeah but no but yeah but no!!

Perhaps the best assortment of fun men’s fancy dress is gathered in the “Stag Costumes” area (what better place is there for a collection of hilarious and perhaps slightly rude costumes!). Choose from the 80s-inspired “Let’s Get Physical” leotard outfit, Miss World, cheerleaders, Hawaiian hula girl, nurse, fat stripper or –if you’re feeling a little cheeky – pregnant nun!

Happy hunting ladies/men!

The Ladies Love a Man in Uniform! Comments Off on The Ladies Love a Man in Uniform!

“I love a man in uniform” is one of those cliche phrases that sound a bit silly outside of black and white classic movies. Katherine Hepburn could get away with it but the women of today find it a little harder. Still, that doesn’t mean it’s not true. In fact, it’s such a well-known saying exactly because it is very true indeed. Many women really do love a man in uniform.

The next time you’re selecting Halloween costumes, remember that. You can capitalise on it with a dignified yet sexy uniform outfit. You can be a fireman, a police officer, a pilot, a doctor or a soldier. All of those are, in their own ways, sexy professions and if you buy from us they certainly make alluring fancy dress outfits.

They’re also relatively low key – great choices for those who’d rather not dress up as Elvis complete with spectacular quiff wig, spangled jumpsuit and sideburns. If you want to look good without going overboard, uniform costumes are a great place to start looking. You don’t have to hide yourself away under a white sheet and pretend to be a ghost!

There are also women’s fancy dress uniforms. These are not only some of the sexiest choices but also the most classic and most instantly recognisable – the saucy French maid, the short-skirted nurse, the women’s army and sailor outfits. Men love a woman in uniform just as much as girls love their firemen and jet fighters so these are sure to make an impact at any costume party.
