Here's a few ideas as to who or what you can dress up as:-

  • Cowboy or Girl - add a hat, fringed jacket and boots to look like you've just stepped out of a western movie or the wild west !
  • Saloon Girl - put together a flouncy skirt and slightly low cut top , and get ready to serve a few whiskies
  • Marilyn Monroe - don a blonde wig , pad out your boobs and don a 50's dress
  • Flapper (dress style from the 20's) - pop on a dropped waist dress or a straight dress with a sash tied around the waist. Add a bob hairstyle and a band round your head - which though not strictly correct, is what people associate with the roaring twenties
  • Barbie princess - go wild and use your imagination - anything goes!
  • Disney characters - this can be as simple as buying a mask, or you can go all the way and hire the full costume
  • Opera singer - gives you free range to dress up in any vintage clothing
  • Hula dancer in hawaiian wear
  • Disney characters - from Hannah Montana to Belle from Beauty & the Beast, from the Incredibles to Mary Poppins, from Winnie the Pooh to Peter Pan, Mickey Mouse to the Lion King, from Tarzan to Toy Story & Transformers - these alone provide sufficient inspiration for any costume party
