Top 10 Fancy Dress Ideas Party Themes
Costume Ideas Party themes can not only set the tone of the party, but also the fun of people in the run-up to the night.
Gone are the days when costumes were limited to children’s birthdays and harsh bachelorette parties – people all over the country are discovering the sheer fun of spending the weekend dressed as a pirate!
Whether you decide to show off your weird and wonderful costumes at your local club/pub or in the relative privacy of a home party, a costume is a great way to experience a brilliantly different night!
No matter how much money you have to spend, there are plenty of options for the costume connoisseur! Are you feeling flushed? Why not put on a finished costume with all the trimmings? Watch out for the pennies? Then put on your best blue hat, Peter, and get creative at home. Whatever your budget, the costume has a great effect on people and it will certainly be a fun night!
Here are my 10 favorite themes…
Position 10 – The ‘P’ party
This theme is great because it gives people room to use creativity and at the same time tolerate plagiarism laziness. Say ‘Arrgg buddy’ and join the crowd of pirates, prostitutes, and pikies. Luckily, it’s in the reasonably safe hands of reasonably angry paramedics and police.
* This idea can be applied to every letter of the alphabet – or why not try asking guests to come as something that begins with the first letter of their name!
Position 9 – Superheroes
Whether it was Superman or He-Man, Catwoman or even Supergrano, we all had our favorite superheroes when we were kids, now you have the chance to finally be like them! The standard element of Lycra and pants will inevitably turn your head (though not always for the right reasons!) or why not be a little different and go as the hero’s alter ego?
Position 8 – Muffins and Vicars
The theme of the classic costume – your chance to be seen in public in the shortest skirt and highest heels – was filled with the obligatory fishnet stockings, and that’s just for the boys! For the more reserved among us, the parish priest’s costume is a simple alternative.
Position 7 – Charity shop night
Have fun and good karma while you’re at it! Set a price limit and your guests will have to buy all their equipment (including shoes and accessories) at your local charity shop. The results are always hilarious and no two outfits are the same – just look at the number of men dressed as women – they love it!
Position 6 – Uniforms
Every girl loves a man in uniform! And I’m sure the opposite is true too! From sailors and firemen to nurses and flight attendants, this is a great topic for bachelor and bachelorette parties, and it will certainly get a lot of attention. Just be careful not to lose the keys to the handcuffs!
Position 5 – What you want to be when you grow up
Not only is it a great subject with many options, but you can also find out what your friends wanted to be when they were kids. There are always a few cops and nurses, but you’ll probably see some more unusual career goals, like your lawyer friend who really wanted to be a zookeeper or your distinguished sister-in-law who secretly longed to become a garbage collector!
Position 6 – Movie stars
Have you always considered yourself a little Hollywood star? Do you think you’d make a good 007 or Lara Croft? Or do you look more like Fred Flintstone? The possibilities for this theme are endless, and with more movies coming to your local multiplex every week, there’s no excuse not to invent a great costume!
Position 3 – Cowboys and Indians
Another classic theme and so easy to do – throw a pair of jeans and a checkered shirt together – and I bet you ladies have at least one pair of cowboy boots in your closet somewhere! Plus, you get to fight with the obligatory toy guns!
Position 2 – Heaven and hell
Are you a dirty devil or an innocent angel – or why not combine both and come as a naughty nun? Whatever your choice, this is a great subject – even dressed as an angel, you’re sure to get the heart of a naughty devil!
Position 1 – Good and bad
Whether you choose a famous duo like Austin Powers and Dr. Evil or a classic couple like cops and robbers, this is a topic with plenty of room for imagination and a great idea for couples.
