It is not just a coincidence that it is in the run up to Halloween that I launch this new blog about UK fancy dress. After all when many of us think of fancy dress costumes, we naturally think of Trick or Treat and Halloween fancy dress parties.
However, there is so much more to fancy dress than just Halloween in this country and the Fancy Dress UK website aims to cover all aspects of this growing industry.
For whatever reason, the British public just love dressing up! From Hawaiian themed barbecues throughout the summer to festive fancy dress at Christmas; St. Patricks Day celebrations, Easter Parades and of course Halloween. And let’s not forget Talk Like A Pirate Day!
Meanwhile, 70’s fancy dress is extremely popular throughout the year at school reunions, 70’s parties and Car Wash night clubs. Another, up-and-coming trend are the Masquerade Balls that many of the big multi-national companies are putting on for their staff.
Then there are the Valentine Balls, Casino Nights, Murder Mystery Nights, Role Play, War Games, Science Fiction Conventions, not forgetting Stag and Hen Nights. Today, it seems that almost every party, event or gathering is yet another excuse to get changed into an outfit and play a part.
And dressing up is not just fun for us adults! Children can also join in the fun at birthday parties, school fêtes, end of term discos, school plays and of course Nativity plays.
Fancy Dress UK aims to become a resource where you can find information about where and when you can wear your fancy dress outfits to events and parties up and down the country. We shall also feature the latest news and events from the UK Fancy Dress industry.
Most importantly the site will include information about the latest costumes, as and when they come out, discounted outfits and sale items and reviews of both the best value and the most interesting and original costumes and accessories on the market.
We hope you enjoy Fancy Dress UK.
