Children around the world love the opportunity to have a party. Usually, this means a birthday party. One of the most popular
themes for birthday parties has always been fancy
dress, where the host and guests dress
up in various outfits related to a theme. Popular
choice for fancy dress parties vary with trends,
although some perennial favourites include Disney,
animals and sports (particularly for boys).
For Disney-themed parties, a
good place to start is with an appropriate fancy
dress hat. The most in-demand disney
fancy dress hat is, predictably, the Mickey/Minnie
Mouse ear set. Arguably one of the most significant
and iconic designs of the twentieth century, the
talking mouse's ears can be seen at fancy dress
parties the world over. No fancy dress
wig is necessary with Mickey Mouse ears.
This is just as well, because wearing a wig can
grow uncomfortable over the course of an evening
Great children's costumes
are those which are easy to put on and likely
to survive an amount of punishment. Some items,
such as a genuine Star Wars mask,
are likely to make a big impression at parties.
Of course, this situation is unlikely to last
forever, as children in ten years' time will not
have heard of Star Wars or have
been subjected to the barrage of marketing which
comes with each new installment.
Choosing an animal costume,
on the other hand, can be easier. A great animal
costume for kids usually includes the addition
of face paints, a tail and suitably coloured clothing
in between The addition of costume gloves
can create any animal in the zoo, from the tiger
to the turtle. Some animals are, of course, harder
to pull of than others. Creating a whale or fish
costume, for example, can be difficult because
humans have legs, while fish have fins. The difficulty
with turning legs into fins for the sake of a
fancy dress costume is that we are unable to walk
properly without our legs. Fish
costumes are arguably more suited to pool parties.
Fancy Dress Costumes are available for hire or for sale. One of the best places to search for an appropriate costume is on the internet, where you will find a huge range of options to suit all tastes and budgets. It is worth considering that kids would not want to be seen in the same costume twice any more than most adults do.
