When thinking about a fancy dress night out, there’s a lot that has to be considered. A big consideration is wanting to look your best and not feel too silly in your chosen costume! Another thing to think about is that you don’t want to be dressed the same as anyone else – especially if you’ve put a lot of thought and research into what you’re going to wear.
Then there’s the issue of whether or not everyone in the fancy dress party is going to be wearing a costumes. Are you going to make all this effort, just to find out that you’ve taken the ‘fancy dress’ theme a little bit too far?
I remember a Manchester fancy dress party that I went to where one of the people attending was dressed as Freddie Mercury in the I Want To Break Free music video. He arrived sporting a short skirt, suspenders, high heels, and a plastic bag with a pair of Adidas Hamburg in for the journey home.
