When the party that you are going to, requires that you wear fancy dress, it is really important to leave enough time before hand to get the right costume ready. It is conceivable that some people wil make their own outfit but who has the time? So lets look at a few commercially available options. For the sake of this piece I will concentrate on ladies Halloween Costumes. Although male costumes can be just as much fun there is something altogether more exciting about the world of ladies fancy dress costumes, they have more options and a wider range of characters to dress as.
The most recent party that I went to had two main categories in attendance one was the army fancy dress crew and the other was fairytale fancy dress. The concept of dressing up in uniform, has its advantages, for a girl that can rise to the challenge it could be a very good option. Many opportunities arise when one starts to look through the catalogue for this category. For the strong woman who is prepared to get into character it can be a time to become the person she only ever dared to dream of being. She can impersonate from soldiers to colonels using the more realistic costumes and then there are the other, adult only, and not really very army outfits to play and have fun in. If wearing hats and toting guns tickles your fancy then the standard soldier garb may very well be your type of costume. The again if you enjoy the power of being boss perhaps the generals outfit is the way forward. For many though the sexy costumes are where the fun is at and that is the beauty of this category – something for everyone.
There are so many fabulous characters that we half remember from stories when we were little like Queen of hearts fancy dress and Alice in wonderland fancy dress, but dont forget the nusery rhyme characters for they have a special place in our hearts too like little Bo Peep fancy dress or little Miss Muffet fancy dress. The readymade costumes available from shops and online again range from story book copies to flimsy and flirty outfits for the more adult night out.
So ladies, which ever you choose for your night out take the time plan what to wear and shop early to avoid disappointment.
