Fancy Dress Parties are very popular all over the world but even more so around Halloween time in the UK and USA, children usually go trick or treating for Halloween which is the same time every year October 31st, over the past few years we have found that children and adults seem to be opting for normal generic costumes as well as the more traditional scary horror costumes..
Trick or treating is when children knock a neighbours frontdoor dressed in a Halloween Fancy Dress Costume and say the words "trick or treat" a treat can be some sweets or a present sometimes a small amount of money for a treat, a trick could be you give the house owner a sweet and it's a hot pepper sweet or something similar that’s not too nice or can be funny.
Teenagers and adults that are too old for trick or treating usually attend a fancy dress party instead. Halloween fancy dress parties are occasionally featured around popular movies, such as Scream, Friday 13th, Jason, Addams Family or anything that's horror and scary but as I mentioned earlier the trend is becoming more popular to wear any fancy dress theme.
Fancy Dress parties are also popular during the Summer Carnival season Mardi Gras' are a big procession of colourful fancy dress costumes from lots of different cultures and many different themes lots of groups dress up for these events they can be from drama schools, dance clubs, design students or just anyone one wanting to get a lots of friends and family together and dress up to walk in the procession.
Schools are very pro active with dressing up and most schools do book week this is when a child dresses up as a character of their favourite book and has to bring the book along to school, having read it of course as they normally will be asked about the character they are dressed up as.
School plays and production within the drama classes love to dress up to, costumes and dressing up is a great start into the world of theatre acting, this is because most people who are made up in a character usually will try and take on their personality role to make the character feel alive.
Themed parties are also very popular around a film release some classic film characters are The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, The Phantom Menace, Harry Potter, Batman, X Men to name but a few these are classed as licensed costumes, this means they are characters owned by the film makers and every costume sold will have a licensed fee charged on them, that’s why you will find licensed characters slightly more expensive than an everyday character like a basic pirate. Banquets and Weddings are also very partial to the world of dressing up in costumes.
Here at Abfab we have supplied many fancy dress costumes for lots of medieval parties at Churches or Castles for Murder Mystery theme night or Wedding they have any theme you like, we have done Victorian, Halloween, Medieval, Cartoon Characters, Disney Weddings and many many more. Birthday are another way of getting into your past era many people having there 30’ or 40’s even 50’s and 60’s have all dressed in their era it could be the 70’s, 80’s or even the 50’s and swinging 60’s whatever it is, I promise you will have a ball stepping back into your youth, playing the music wearing the clothes. Some latest trends for fancy dress costume parties are being branded the ‘retro Range, Some old characters are making a comeback like Pac Man, Rubix Cube, Twister, bananas in pyjamas even Roland Rat.
Fancy dress is so very popular in the UK some costumes are very provocative and extremely sexy these are usually worn for Hen parties or the ladies that are still out on the town clubbing till dawn. Another popular theme is pop star fancy dress costumes, some include Madonna, Lady Gaga, Abba, Tina Turner, Rod Stewart, Elvis and many more please see our full selection in Singers and Pop Stars, we also sell a great selection of accessories for most pop stars too. Summer parties are fun especially if the weather is good and the BBQ is going, why not turn your party into an Hawaiian themed party, we can offer you Palm trees, bunting, table clothes, back screen drops as well as the normal leis and grass skirts...
