Summer Fancy Dress At Music Festivals: 4 Things To Remember.

Choosing a fancy dress costume for a festival can be a difficult decision to make. Indeed, there are lots of things that you have to consider such as a costume theme, making sure that the costume you choose is appropriate for the weather and venue, and also making sure that you will be able to carry everything that you need to. 
So to give you a helping hand, here’s a list of 4 things that you need to remember when deciding on a fancy dress costume for a music festival.

1.Organise A Group Costume With Your Friends.
If you’re attending a festival in a group, organising a group costume can be a fun activity for all of you. Perhaps you could dress up as some of your favourite characters from a film or television show, for example all of you could be superheroes, or all of you could be movie villains.
However, you could decide to keep the costume simple, and dress up in fancy dress costumes which are linked together by a theme. For example, you and your friends could dress up in Hawaiian themed costumes. If this idea interests you, perhaps you would like to browse through our selection of Hawaiian costumes for men and/or our ladies Hawaiian fancy dress costumes.

2.Choose A Costume That Is Appropriate For The Weather.
Whilst fancy dress costumes at music festivals can be lots of fun, it is important to remember to stay safe and choose a costume that is appropriate for the weather. For example, if a heat wave is forecast for the festival, please remember to consider this when choosing your fancy dress costume.
For example, you could dress up as a Zulu Warrior with a Zulu Warrior Costume; but don’t forget to wear sun cream! Alternatively, you could dress up in a “Where’s Wenda?” costume so your friends can have fun trying to find you in photographs.
Also, please remember that even if you choose a costume that is appropriate for warm weather, it is still important to check for the signs of heat exhaustion. 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.”
However, if the forecast suggests that it will be raining for the event, perhaps you could utilise the opportunity to wear a fancy dress poncho? We have a fantastic selection to choose from on our online store including a Frog Party Poncho, a Duck Party Poncho, and a Leopard Party Poncho!

3.Get A Money Belt!
This is not a fancy dress suggestion for a music festival costume; however a money belt is a fantastic addition to your fancy dress costume. Instead of carrying valuables such as money or your phone in a bag, by using a money belt, you can store these valuable items hidden from view.
Additionally, some money belts also come with RFID blocking abilities, so if you have contactless cards or other contactless devices, you might consider purchasing an RFID blocking money belt.

4.Be Prepared For Summer Weather!
Even if the music festival is located in the United Kingdom, it is still important to remember to be prepared for summer weather. As such, in addition to choosing a fantastic summer fancy dress costume, you also need to make sure that you stay hydrated by drinking water and that you protect your skin by wearing a sun cream of an appropriate strength.
