Fancy dress costumes are now available in a wide range of shapes and sizes and never has it
been as easy to become someone new, to change your own persona, at least for a period of time.
Fancy dress costumes are available for just about any theme.
But, it is true that the costume you wear will only be complete with the right costume accessories.
It is possible to buy or rent an expensive fancy dress costume but for it to look incomplete or plain
daft due to the lack of the right accessories. For example, if you choose a Roman toga or Greek
Goddesses robes without the right footwear - or at least something in keeping with the costume,
the total look could fall flat. You may play it for humor and wear black socks and slip-ons but this
is probably not the look you set out to achieve - albeit a good recovery plan.
Similarly, who would want to be Santa without a hat or complete set of whiskers - including white
eyebrows, a witch without hat and wand, pirate without eye patch and hook (although probably
not suited for the young). There are hundreds of examples, but what is important is that this is our
expectation when we think of these characters. It is the finishing accessories that make the
fantasy come to life.
Most fancy dress retailers and fancy dress costume hirers will have a selection of accessories.
The better ones will have these accessories grouped with the costumes to avoid unnecessary
searching giving some ideas. It is always advisable when choosing a theme for your fancy dress
to identify the accessories that you will want - this may save you wasting time and money. Here
are some simple ideas for costumes and accessories that may be linked together;
Beach Party or Luau
This is a great fancy dress costume theme which is becoming more popular for those warm
evenings during the summer months. Organise around a BBQ with tropical punches. Costumes
are very relaxed but again the accessories will bring it all together; simply these will be from; sun
glasses, bottle of sun cream, flip flops or sandals, Hawaiian leis, wristbands, anklets etc, tropical
flowers for the hair, straw hat.
The most common mistake with these costumes is to forget the feet. Both themes normally
include pretty dresses, and pretty dresses require pretty feet - unless you are trick or treating, in
which case you want warm and sensible footwear.
Fairies have wands and these can be as elaborate or as simple as you want - it would normally
depend on the age of the Fairy, the younger the fairy the more simple the wand (as it's more likely
to be lost or broken). If you are making one, then a foil or ribbon covered stick - with padded end
to protect eyes etc, with an oversized star made from decorated card on the top. Decoration with
plenty of glitter and sparkle. Add a few thin strips of ribbon under the star for that final finishing
One of the greatest accessories for pirates is the gold foil chocolate coins that you can buy
around Christmas. Cheap and cheerful, if it lasts long enough transfer it to a simple black cloth
tie-neck purse and attach to the belt. Great for paying off the debts and also helpful if the buffet is
a bit thin. Eye patches come in a variety of styles from simple black stiffened fabric to rhinestone
encrusted for the glamorous look - your choice will depend on the overall look you are trying to
With the recent blockbuster pirate themed films there has been a real explosion in the popularity
of pirates as a party theme. The range of pirate costumes available is huge and many cover the
two themes of pirates and Halloween... Pirate Bones is a classic example of a skeleton suit
integrated with a pirate's costume.
Wigs and Makeup
It would be impossible to leave this topic without some discussion on the incredible advances in
fancy dress costume wig design and affordability. For very little money you can now purchase a
costume wig for almost any theme. For example, for pirates there are pirate's wigs, buccaneer's
wigs, pirate wenches' blond wigs, brown wigs, wigs with beads, wigs with hats attached, wigs with
bandannas attached and this is before we look at mustaches and beards - with beads, without
beads - the choice is truly amazing.
Makeup falls basically into two groups, face paints which are water soluble greasepaint which will
require a greasepaint remover. Greasepaint is the more traditional and is what is used in theatre
etc. it can also be messy to wear if incorrectly applied. Face paint offers fantastic results and is
more easily applied by the amateur. Both are normally available in kits so it is possible to buy a kit
that covers one theme or a number of similar themes.
Hopefully this short article will have given you some ideas and shown you that no matter the
costume or theme, it is the accessories that complete the outfit.
