Looking for fancy dress ideas for your annual fancy dress party at the office or school? Every year on average we attend at least two fancy dress parties. The party can be formal affair where a theme is announced and the guests are expected to conform to the theme. Like if it is a 80’s themed party, then all guests turn up wearing dresses that were in fashion in the 80’s. If it’s royal theme party then all guests dress up as royalty. It’s a little more formal.
Then there are fancy dress competitions – events centered around an event or day. Guy Fawke’s Day, Halloween, Christmas are some example that come to mind. People are expected to dress up to theme or events surrounding the day. Once the main theme is selected fancy dress ideas that go with it are quite limited or unlimited depending on your imagination and creativity. If you can stretch your thinking a little you are sure to find some unique and great ideas to wear to the theme party.
If it is none of these and just a free-wheeling party where you are expected to dress up to any whim or fancy that catches your mind then that’s great too. You can choose from a whole range of people, things, objects to dress up as. Great people, leaders, movie stars, pop stars, animals, characters from movies, animal characters from movies, animation characters, characters from comic books, action heroes, characters from your favorite TV show, your idol, hated villains are some of the ideas you can explore when choosing fancy dresses. You can dress up as different types of professionals – doctors, nurses, bus drivers, postman, electrician, plumber, construction worker and so on are some examples for this. These are easy and simple to impersonate through simple accessories and mannerisms.
Not just people you can dress up as objects too. Aquarium, vending machine, TV, fridge, phone, phone booth, bus, ATM machine, computer, iPhone, iPad, iPod and other electronic gadgets, Rubik’s Cube are great for going to parties. Creating these objects will need a little bit of ingenuity. For most of the above you will need a box with cut outs for hands and head. You can either paste or paint the gadget you want to represent. For some objects like aquarium you can hang plastic fish to show the fish in the fish tank. The vending machine can have small plastic bottles or cans to represent drinks. It is left to you on the accessories you want to add to make your dress as realistic as possible.
