If you can’t decide what costume to wear for Pride, don’t worry. Here are 4 Pride fancy dress tips!

    Pride is all about self expression. Whilst there will be a lot of rainbows, don’t feel like you have to wear rainbows. If you can’t find a costume that you like in our Pride fancy dress section, browse through our wide collection of fancy dress costumes for ladies and men’s fancy dress costumes.

    We have lots of fantastic fancy dress costumes inspired by different themes and styles. For example, we have numerous costumes inspired by decades, films, television programs, superheroes and more.
  2. How About Cross Dressing?
    Cross dressing is very common at Pride celebrations. Many people express themselves or show solidarity for others by cross dressing. If you’ve found a costume you want to wear, but you’re unsure which size would best fit you, you can measure yourself and use the size guide found on fancy dress costume pages.

    However, if you require additional assistance, feel free to visit us in store at either Liverpool or Chester and our staff will be happy to help you!
  3. Add Some Rainbows To An Existing Costume!
    You could choose to transform an existing costume into a Pride costume with some Pride accessories!

    For example, you could choose to wear a superhero costume and add some Pride accessories such as a rainbow Pride cape! If you’re unsure what comic book character to choose, you could opt for a LGBT+ character, such as Deadpool who is widely believed to either be pansexual, omnisexual, or have a fluid sexuality.
  4. Pick A Costume Of An LGBT+ Character!
    There are lots of LGBT+ characters in fiction to choose from. Perhaps one of the more well known characters is Dumbledore from the Harry Potter universe (also known as the Potterverse). You could choose a wizard costume, a fantastic wand and add a few rainbow accessories!
