Angels and Devils - Hen Party Theme

If you read my blog regularly you may have come across one of my fancy dress posts in the past, one being ‘Ideas for Fancy Dress' where I've shared with you all my favourite fancy dress costumes, some of which I have made from stretch. I absolutely loved dressing up when I was a student and more or less every event I went too was doing the Otley run in fancy dress. However, given my full-time job as an Account Manager, there are not many events I go to now that are fancy dress, as working within the business market events are in the form of formal lunches and dinners with my clients.

Anyhow as you can see above, I recently got the chance to dress up for my sister’s hen party in Liverpool. The theme was angels and devils, well when I say angels, I mean the bride to be was an angel and everyone else dressed as a devil. We went for the minimal look, where we wore red dresses and clip in horns.

When we went out in Liverpool, we got some great feedback about our outfits and everyone said they never seen an angel and devils theme for a hen party before, which is great as we wanted to do something different to the usual hen party that you usually find with the L plates etc.

That said, Halloween is just around the corner and I need to start thinking of what my next costume should be. So I thought it would be worth putting a small list together with a few ideas on what you could dress up as for Halloween if you are going out with a group of friends:

Where’s Wally – This has been a huge theme lately and you could only get away with this if you were in a big group. All you need is some shorts, red and white shirt, hat and socks. Add some braces and black glasses to give that extra geeky look. 

Smurfs – As with Where’s Wally you would need to be in a group to pull this one off, but its really simple to paint your self blue and wearing a white hat, top and trousers/skirt. 

Disney - This is a great one for both guys and ladies, as everyone aspires to be a superhero, princess or even villain. 

Thriller - Michael Jackson 'Thriller' is a great theme and perfect around Halloween. Although, you will need to buy some really cheap clothes for this, as you'll need to cut them up and put some red paint on you to give you that zombie look. However, you could easily just buy a zombie costume from Fancy Dress Ball. Plus they have many more wonderful costumes for all themes. 

The thing to remember is, you don’t need to go for the scary and spooky stuff just because its Halloween, times have well and truly moved on since then. 

Have you recently done fancy dress or do you have a costume in mind for Halloween?
