Fancy Dress For Festivals; 3 Tips To Help

1. Think About The Weather
Festivals are outside events, which means that you have to consider the weather. When left at the mercy of the weather, it might be a good idea to plan for two different scenarios, when the weather is very warm in the summer heat, or when the weather is being typically British and there’s a downpour of rain. You want to make sure that neither rain nor shine ruins your fancy dress fun, so prepare for a variety of scenarios.

With regards to the heat, we recommend something simple and weather appropriate. Don’t opt for the large mascot style costumes as you could quickly overheat whilst wearing them. Instead, how about a Hawaiian themed costume such as the Instant Hawaiian Set , which includes a Skirt, Bra, Lei, Head Garland, and Wrist Bands.

On the other hand, if it is raining, it’s a very sensible idea to avoid items of fancy dress that could get damaged in the rain. However don’t despair, because there are lots of awesome fancy dress choices which are fantastic choices for whilst it’s raining. We recommend costumes such as fancy dress ponchos; our online store has a variety of fancy dress ponchos to choose from including a Parrot Party Poncho , a Giraffe Party Poncho, and a Flower Party Poncho.

2. Choose An Event Appropriate Costume
Different festivals will attract different crowds, as such a costume that may be considered appropriate at one festival may be very inappropriate to wear at another, so it’s always important that you consider the venue and event you are attending before you choose your costume.

For example, if the event is a frequently attended by families with young children, a more risqué or sexual themed costume wouldn’t be advisable as many would consider it inappropriate. However, at an adults only event where many of the performing musical acts use foul language and have songs with adult themes, costumes such as the Gravity Granny Costume or the Well Hung Highlander Costume might be great choices.

If you’re unsure about your fancy dress costume being acceptable for a venue or event, ask the organisers if they have any policies on fancy dress and acceptable clothing items. After all, you wouldn’t want to turn up in a hilarious fancy dress costume, only to be asked to leave because it’s inappropriate for the venue.

3. Dress Up With Your Friends
Another great idea for festival fancy dress is to organise a group costume with your friends. For example you could all decide on a theme, you could dress up as a team of superheroes, you could dress up as Hogwarts students, or perhaps you could dress up as characters from a popular television program or film.

So if you’re interested in organising a group costume with your friends, why not visit our Liverpool fancy dress shop together and browse through our collection of costumes and see what interests you?
