Deciding on the right theme for your fancy dress party is important when it comes to making sure it is an amazing event. At Alter Ego we help you think outside your dressing up box to come up with some original and imaginative ideas.
We have put together a list of some theme ideas that is sure to get your party started. Alternatively if you’re looking for something a little more tailor-made just give us a call and we will be more than happy to help you plan your special event from start to finish.
We have a whole farm yard here. You can “chicken” out and add a pair of bunny ears and a fluffy tail to your everyday wear or you can go the whole “hog” and go in a 2 man cow costume and be totally and udderly awesome, it’s up to “ewe”.
A wonderful opportunity to go back in time to remember your old favourites. Dick Dastardly and Penelope Pitstop, Dennis the menace and all his gang, Bob the builder or even Mr Ben the list is endless with this fun theme.
The Christmas fancy dress selection seems to be doubling with each passing year as more and more people decide to have a yuletide costume party. Gone are the days where people just dressed up as Santa Claus, we now have Christmas trees, penguins, elves, reindeers, snow men and even sexy Mrs. Claus.
Disney remains a very popular party theme. From Snow White and the seven dwarfs to Darth Vader we have lots of Disney character to help your party go off with a bang. Plus lots of Characters you may never even have known were from Disney.
Why not pick a decade and base your fancy dress party on that era. The popular themes are 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and the 1990s. Simply pick famous people from that period or famous fashion phases. The 60s and 70s were best known for the hippies, that would make for a very colourful party full of world loving, peace promoters dressed in flower power patterns. Surely that is going to be a great party!
Every girls dream. Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Belle the list is endless and so are the beautiful gowns to choose from. Don’t forget your Prince Charming, though there are lots of other options like the wolf and the giant to choose from.
Anything from Olde England would be great for this theme. Kings and Queens, Knights in shining armour, wenches, peasants, executioners and monks are all perfectly acceptable. Robin Hood and his merry men would also make a lovely addition to the party.
Another good opportunity to let the Boys dress up as women. The pantomime theme lets your guests choose between popular pantomime stories such as Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Puss in Boots and Cinderella. Just don’t forget the Panto cow; no pantomime is complete without one.
This fancy dress theme is always a great success. The girls have the option to dress up in lavish saloon girl dresses, Can-Can dancers or Indian Sioux. The men can dress up as gold miners, sheriffs, Indians and of course cowboys, with real suede chaps. The weapons are also very popular accessories.
Everyone loves the chance to become who they always dreamed they would be as a child. The options are endless, from nurses, doctors, football players, and fireman; to the slightly more obscure…what did you want to be when you grew up?
