Fancy Dress Ideas - Find a Halloween Costume Online
You've been invited to a fancy dress party, and you need some ideas because you just can't think of what to go as.
Have a read here and see if anything strikes a chord with you.
Sometimes it is just ideas we are short of.
Other times, we may have a fancy dress costume or two stuck away at the back of a wardrobe but perhaps for you it's the wrong time of the year.
If your costume is furry and all-encompassing, you're going to be too hot wearing it to a summer party. Alternatively, your skimpy outfit will leave you shivering if it's winter.
Even if the house or venue the party is being held in is centrally heated, you still have to travel to get there.Try and pick something suitable for the season.
It's always handy to have one or two fancy dress costumes kept in reserve anyway, for those last minute party invitations, or even worse, those parties you have been looking forward to for weeks, but only discovered at the last moment that it was fancy dress!
I am including a selection of outfits for both sexes, seeing as both are likely to read this page. If there is a third sex that I don't know about, I'm afraid you'll just have to mix 'n match!
Sexy Pin-up Navy Girl
Includes the skirt, top, belt and hat as shown in this picture.
First Mate Sailor Men's Costume
Include pants, shirt 100% poly-poplin and blue scarf.Hat not included. Offered here separately.
Life on the Ocean Wave
Everybody loves a sailor, and make the party go with a swing with a sailor costume. Always glamorous, sailor outfits are sexy and eye-catching. Get your chance to show off your dancing skills with one of these outfits.
The only trouble with wearing a waitress costume to a party is that everyone will keep handing you their glasses to refill and asking you to fetch them food! Plus if you do sit down to try and enjoy yourself everyone will think you're a right lazy git for not getting on with your job! On the plus side, expect some tips!
As Amazon themselves say, many of these outfits can be used theatrically so if you are involved in any amateur dramatic society, you may find all your costumes at a really great price for your next production.
Again more with Halloween in mind, a zombie costume is a great idea. Even better if there are a few of you and you learn to dance to Michael's Jackson's Thriller. That would really set the scene!
Don't be tempted to wear a zombie costume to the dancing (in a nightclub), you might find yourself in a spot of bother if fancy dress wasn't on the agenda for the night. Don't be surprised if the management ask you to leave, assuming you got past the bouncers in the first place.
Nor is it advisable to walk down the street wearing one, especially if you develop a stilting gait. You may frighten the children.
Recreate the roaring 20s with one of these fantastic outfits. There is nothing old-fashioned about the look they had in the 20s - in fact, they could teach us a thing or two about style!
Make yourself feel fantastic, sexy and sophisticated at any party wearing this outfit. You'll be the Belle of the Ball!
This fabulous purple flapper costume consists of a velvet dress in sizes 6 - 14, a headdress with feather and feather trimmed glovelets. You just need to supply the shoes, stockings and obligatory cigarette holder.
Purple Flapper Costume
Grim Reaper Costume
A grim reaper costume is perfect for setting the scene and scaring the ladies! The bringer of death is just the costume to wear to a Halloween party, though I wouldn't advise trying to get into the Friday night disco with this on. The bouncers would confiscate your scythe as a 'dangerous weapon' (even if it is only plastic).
Grim Reaper Costume
Wow! Doesn't this lad look HOT! If all vampires looked like this we'd be queueing round the block to get a look-in, wouldn't we girls? In fact, I think everyone who works for the blood transfusion service should dress like this - they could take my blood any time!
Lady Vampire (or is that a Vampiress?)
California Costume Women's Adult-Vampire'S Mistress
This women's Adult Vampire Costume is gorgeous! Available in sizes Small to Medium, this really is an outfit for a slender lady, but wow! you'd feel empowered wearing this dress and not a little scarey. The Costume arrives with dress with front lace detail, feather collar to wear round the neck, and hair ornament.
The dress itself is cold water hand wash only.
As far as fancy dress ideas go, this one is great. I'd wear it anyway, fancy dress or not (if I was slim).
