Costume Ideas for Letter T

Updated on October 27, 2014

LETTER THEME FANCY DRESS PARTY

I know it sounds very strange but it is becoming more and more common for people to have a themed fancy dress party where the guests have to come dressed based on a letter from the alphabet.

This allows the guests to come up with some very interesting ideas.

There are a couple of options available for this type of theme.

1) You could ask you guests to dress up as their own initials (or, to make the choice a bit narrower their first name initial only)

2) You could get your guests to dress up related to your initials only

3) You could just issue random letters to your guests and advise them in their invitation.

Invitations

When you first send out invitations to this type of fancy dress themed parties, your guests may be a little confused. You will need to provide a very good explanation on the invitation of what the theme is about. It may also pay you to print of this page and my other letter based web pages. This will help your guests to find a suitable costume and they will enjoy the party. If you just send them an invite with no real explanation, you may get some 'no shows'.

Direct them to our website (and our blog - see below) where you will get a fantastic range of fancy dress costumes for every fancy dress theme you can think of

'The' Costumes

A lot of characters are pre-fixed with a 'The'. Here is a selection to give you some inspiration...

Flintstones - Ideal for an individual or a couple or group. Wilma and Fred are the most popular. Licensed costumes are available to purchase

Cat In The Hat - Dr Seuss character. Licensed costumes are available to purchase, or you can purchase a couple of accessories (the hat being the most popular) and add it to some cat accessories.

Lord Of the Rings - This gives you a wide range of charcters from Frodo, Legolas and Gandalf to Gandalf and Saruman. Rather like Star Wars, females are fewer, but Arwenand Galadriel are major players.

Three Musketeers- A great costume option for a group of 3.

Three Amigos- another great costume option for a group of 3. This is such an easy costume to put together with ponchos, sombreros and Mexican moustaches being easily available to purchase.

Joker- Villain of the Batman saga. Different versions from different actors have been seen from the TV & film Cesar Romero through Jack Nicholson to the Oscar-winning Heath Ledger.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly - thinking a bit outside of the box! Use a good costume such as a nurse or Angel costume. A bad costume such as the Devil, and we will leave the Ugly suggestions up to you!
