Introduction to Fancy Dress Costumes

Fancy dress costumes have become commonplace these days with the popularity of get-togethers where guests are asked to come dressed up in various funny costumes.  The rise in popularity of these fancy dresses can be attributed to the breaking of ice which these dresses do wonderfully well.  Everyone is relaxed and has a lot of fun which is what parties are all about.  If it is a family get-together, here is a look at the costumes that different family members could try.



Thinking of a perfect costume for your dad if he is coming along is not easy as you have to keep in mind his professional profile.  You can ask for his personal liking and suggest your ideas for fancy dress costumes.  Normally the man of the house looks good in either a super hero or a super villain costume, depending upon his liking and comfort level.  If he is not a daredevil, you can look for more sombre costumes like that of a policeman or a doctor for him.  If he likes a character on TV chat shows, let him be one.  If he chooses to dress like a comic book character of his childhood, that could be a great idea.


Mums are naturally choosy when it comes to fancy dress costumes, and they think about their figure and looks when finally deciding on their dress.  But they also have a wide variety of options as far as fancy dress costumes are concerned as they can choose to be trendy, sexy, flashy, outrageous, funny, comical or scary as per their own liking.  One thing that makes it easy for plus sized moms is that there are many costumes that suit the character they choose.  An Oprah Winfrey dress is a great favourite for plus sized moms.  Ladies are creative, and you would be surprised that your mum can create a great costume using old dresses from her wardrobe for the party.  Your mum could choose to compliment your dad or she can dress up as her opposite which would be great fun.

Boys and Girls

Do not worry as there are too many choices for kids when it comes to fancy dress parties.  If the kids are small, obviously their parents choose the dress for them, but if they are grown ups, they have their own taste and liking for characters that decide the dress for the party.  Boys like to dress up as the latest super heroes from recent films such as Hulk, Ironman etc, or they like to wear comic dresses such as can be seen on the characters from Toy Story.  If they are adventurous, they can dress up as the Prince of Persia.  Same goes for girls with their dresses a little more imaginative.

When choosing fancy dress costumes, the sky is the limit as they can be as creative as your imagination.  No matter which dress you choose, make sure it is comfortable and adds to fun in the party.
