bonfire night costumes to keep warm

Halloween is over for this year… but Bonfire Night is just around the corner!

With all the blood and guts of Halloween cleared up and put away for another year, Bonfire Night is another fantastic opportunity to show your fancy dress capabilities. Where we tend to dress to scare on Halloween, Bonfire Night is more about just having fun – but also keeping warm!

If you’re going to a bonfire event, you’ll want to make sure you don’t freeze your toes off! We’ve our fingers crossed for a dry night, but it’s still likely to be fairly chilly!

Here are some ideas for costumes that will allow you to stay warm:

A Mummy!

You can wrap yourself up all warm and cosy, and then just wrap bandages (or toilet roll) around yourself on top. Warm and toasty all evening long!

A Pirate

Pirates sailed the seven seas in trousers, boots, pouffy white shirts (good for wearing layers underneath) and jackets! Perfect outfit for standing about for a bonfire event.

A Zombie

Everyone loves a zombie, right? The brilliant thing abou being a zombie is that a person might have wrapped up warm for an evening at a bonfire party, with gloves and everything – and then been bitten by a zombie and become one themselves!

A Doctor/Surgeon

Doctors tend to wear loose-fitting scrubs and/or a white coat – you can wear layers underneath to keep warm!

A Onesie

Ok, so a onesie is not technically a fancy dress costume – but most onesies are characters like a bear, a crocodile or a cow. If you have one in a larger size you can wear a layer or two underneath.

A Superhero

Superheroes tend to dress in skintight lycra outfits… but the thing about lycra is that it’s stretchy – so you can probably stretch it over a pair of tights and a thermal top!

Saturday 5th April is International Pillow Fight Day! Yes, it’s time to shun the April showers, get into your pyjamas and pillow fight with your besties until the summer weather comes around. To celebrate this year’s pillow fight, why not invite your friends over for a sleepover?

From pillow fights and pillow forts to creating classic sleepover snacks, let Fancy Dress Ball be your guide to planning your perfect pyjama party.

Create pillow fort

No matter what anyone says, you’re never too old to build a pillow fort. Gather as many pillows, blankets and cushions from around the house as you possibly can and then construct your fort. It’s the ideal place to hang out in your PJs and watch a film!

Ultimate pyjama party snacks

Pyjama parties are all about being lazy and comfy, so simplicity and deliciousness are the keys to creating the ultimate pyjama party cuisine. The best plan is to go with an ensemble of breakfast items and sugary snacks, everything from cereal and waffles, to tubs of ice cream and bags of sweets and popcorn. It’s a good idea to get your pizza delivery service on speed dial too…

Pyjama parties are all about chilling out as much as possible, so line up some great films, cosy up with your favourite books and magazines or kick it old school and crack out the board games!

Comfort is of paramount importance at your pyjama party. This is probably the only party where the dress code is ultra-casual. It’s time to get out your favourite jammies or for the ultimate comfort factor, why not wear a onesie!

Have a pillow fight

Of course, no pyjama party would be complete without a pillow fight, not least when it’s a pyjama party to celebrate International Pillow Fight Day!
