Do you love design, costumes and fantasy cosplay? I should start by telling you that I really love the creative process and the back-story artists tell about designing practically anything. They bring life to the mundane and often tap into self-expression in ways that some people can’t relate to. They dream up new widgets, wearable fashion, and incredible costume designs like those found at Fancy Dress Costumes.
There are no shortages of costume selections to inspire your favorite costume party theme. I have assembled my top 10 Fancy Dress Costumes themes for your next party. I reveal my secret desire to be in a Daenerys Targaryen costume (there I said it). I also reveal my prediction that ‘The Dark Night’ Batman costume will prevail as this year’s top hot costume buy. Buckle up costume dress lovers, here we go!
1. Game Of Thrones Character
I am a big fan of the HBO-series Game of Thrones costume design, and I expect to see plenty of renaissance themed nights, White Walkers or zombie costumes at Halloween. I also loved Encore’s version of Spartacus, in particular Andy Whitfield’s stellar performances. Men, it’s your chance play out your fantasy of being a Greek god and becoming a Spartan or maybe you’ll opt for fiction and a more magical experience by becoming a Night of the Red god!
2. Lady Gaga Rockstar
Are you addicted to couture high fashion design and desire more than one costume for your event? Roll out the red carpet and be Lady Gaga! Dressing room magic and a quick wardrobe change will transform you into one of the many Lady Gaga fancy dress costumes to insure you rock out the party in superstar style.
3. Sexy Betty Boop Starlet
Maybe you are into naughty sexy costumes you can wear guilt free? The only thing you might be guilty of is having a streak of 50 shades of fun or adult playroom secretly guarded by your dominant love in the privacy of your home or hotel room. If so, you will be happy to know there are plenty of sexy costumes at Fancy Dress Costumes to fit your style and level of sex appeal.
4. Superhero Batgirl Or Wonder Woman
Speaking of sexy, ladies will appreciate my number four. What girl doesn’t love a good pair of heels to match her costume? Take it to the next level with shoes and accessories to match your fancy dress costume complete from head to toe. Check out these booty kicking Wonder Woman costume boots!
5. Zombie Butchers Bloody Apron & Hat
High five, to planning what to wear to the costume party – yes type A, I know. I like deciding what hot costume I should wear such as the wig, the costume, and the make-up probably as much as I like planning the party itself. What exactly do I want to pretend to be? Maybe I will transform into a Zombie Chef costume dress for a day? This costume idea is great for a couples dress up party and should come with a warning for your date “Be careful kissing the cook” – yikes!
6. 2nd Skin Skeleton
Numero seis or six is the popular 2nd skin costumes. Personally, I would never be caught dead in a 2nd skin of any kind. I have trouble wearing Under Armour brand shorts to the gym. I prefer my own skin to be covered. I digress, but for some people, authenticity is key and 2nd skins are a must have. Fancy Dress Costumes makes it simple to plan an entire outfit, shop online, and order. They also have detailed sizing charts with measurements to help you select the right size for the best fit of your costume or 2nd skin.
7. Epic Star Wars
Two words…Star Wars. I can’t leave out arguably the most iconic sci-fi film series of movies of all time. Bit Rebels fans can’t get enough of Star Wars fandom. I think this is one of the best Princess Leia dresses or maybe I just really like the model’s legs in this photo?
8. Buy Fancy Dress Costumes Online
You should know that fancydresscostumes.co.uk makes it super easy to find a theme with organized categories on their website with their clean website design that doesn’t have a lot of distractions.
9. Costumes To Make People Laugh Or Cry Perhaps Both
Costumes can be a hysterical way for the prankster of the party who loves to be the butt or willy of the party. Going for shock and awe can be better for your budget with this Borat barely there number or maybe you are just too stiff to find words after viewing these funny costumes.
10. Deluxe Muscle The Dark Night Batman
My number 10 is the beloved The Dark Night – Batman. While the opening night ‘The Dark Knight’ movie was clouded with tragedy in the U.S., I am still willing to bet that many Batman fans will be showing their love for the good side wearing their long awaited Dark Knight Batman costumes.
It might seem creepy or disrespectful after the tragedy to adorn a Batman costume, but I don’t agree. If you are a parent you probably didn’t share all the horrible tragedy with your little ones. Boys everywhere are still going to want to wear their favorite superhero costume. It isn’t a statement of disrespect in the mind of a child who wants to fight evil with good. Who can fault the children rooting for the good guys? There were lots of good guys and women in the theater that night ringing true that good does sometimes prevail when evil is in the midst.
