Injecting Fun into a Festival: Top Fancy Dress Ideas

If you’re a festival virgin, or you’re a seasoned pro, you’ll be going to this summer’s festivals for the experiences that you can be a part of once you’re there. Whether you plan to dress up during the weekend or not, the amount of fun that you will have is enormous – the music, the atmosphere and the adventures that are ready to be had are enough for most to buy their tickets anyway. However, if you do want to be a little outrageous during your time at your chosen festival, a fancy dress theme wouldn’t go amiss. The fancy dress from George is not only affordable, but the range is huge; get your mates involved and organise a festival fancy dress theme. Take a look at these fab ideas for inspiration.

An oldie, but a goodie. Superheroes is a perfect fancy dress theme for both guys and girls – Batman, Wonderwoman, Superman… you get the gist!

Whether you opt for fun-loving funny men, or scary ones that will haunt the nightmares of other festival goers, clowns is another fab theme that would suit both genders.

Pick up a sassy and sexy pirate costume if you’re a girl, or dress as Jack Sparrow if you’re a guy – you’ll definitely turn some heads as you get up to your swashbuckling antics in the festival site.

Britpop & Girl Power
Take a step back in time and pay homage to Britpop and Girl Power bands that made a name for themselves in the 90s. Think Blur, Oasis, the Spice Girls – rummage through your mix tapes for inspiration for this one.
Let’s get physical! The more outlandish and garish, the better! Neon hot pants, legwarmers, frizzy wigs – whatever you choose, it’s a fancy dress theme that will certainly have you standing out from the festival crowd.

You can pick up the white hats online with ease, and the blue body paint will finish the look off nicely. Be warned though, the lack of shower facilities mean that you’ll be blue for the duration of the festival, so it may be a theme to use on the final day.

This is definitely one for the boys – who wouldn’t want to don the wrestling gear for some fun in the mud? Go one step further with some Mexican wrestling outfits – you know you wanna!

Super simple and easy to do, onesies aren’t so much a fancy dress theme as they are a festival tradition nowadays! You can find onesies in all different styles, shapes and colours. Plus, they will keep you super warm if the evenings get a little chilly.

Before you decide, take a look at your chosen festival’s website. Some festivals provide a fancy dress theme every year for attendees to use as inspiration, but if it doesn’t tickle your fancy, don’t feel like

you can’t dress up as something other than the theme on the website. And don’t do it by halves – if you’re going to dress up, go all the way for great laughs, and great photos!
