Need some help choosing your costume for a summertime fancy dress party? Don’t worry; the team of party experts at Smiffys-Liverpool are on hand to help you find your ideal outfit from our selection of Summer fancy dress costumes.

Summer Fancy Dress; 3 Things To Consider

To help you decide what costume you would like to purchase, here’s a quick list of three things to think about.

  • The Weather
    Whilst we all like to make jokes about the ‘typical British weather’ and how the weather can be quite miserable from time to time, it’s important to remember just how hot it can get in the UK during the summer time. As such, the weather and the heat need to be considered before you choose your summer fancy dress costume. Some costumes are great choices for the winter as they keep you nice and toasty inside, however during the summer this can be very uncomfortable, possibly even dangerous.

    That being said, it’s still important to remain vigilant for the signs of heat exhaustion in both yourself and your friends attending the party; even if you are all wearing weather appropriate summer fancy dress costumes. According to information on, the signs of heat exhaustion include, “headache, dizziness and confusion, loss of appetite and feeling sick, excessive sweating and pale, clammy skin, cramps in arms, legs and stomach, fast breathing or pulse, temperature of 38c or above, and intense thirst.” 

    Also, don’t forget to keep hydrated by drinking lots water and make sure that you protect your skin by wearing a sun cream of an appropriate strength.

  • The Theme
    Before you start looking at fancy dress ideas, make sure to check if there is a party theme. After all, you wouldn’t want to turn up as a Power Ranger, if everyone else is wearing Hawaiian themed fancy dress costumes.

    If the party has a theme, finding a costume is simple, we have lots of costumes for men, women, and children available in numerous different themes. For example, you could browse through women’s superhero costumes, men’s comedy costumes, or children’s fairytale costumes.

  • Your Budget
    Remember to keep your budget in mind whilst searching for a costume. Here at Smiffys-Liverpool we have a diverse range of costumes available to suit all budgets. For example, if you want to keep things simple, we have lots of instant kits to choose from. These are great for people who want to join in the fancy dress fun, but don’t want a large and overbearing costume.

    On the other hand, there are also lots of deluxe costumes available for purchase on our online store. So if you would like to go the extra mile with your fancy dress; the Smiffys-Liverpool store has everything you need, including makeup and fancy dress accessories.
