About Fancy Dress

Get into the spirit of anything from Halloween to Carnival with fancy dress. Dressing up for one of these masquerade occasions is a fun way to explore your own creativity and put on a different persona for a night. Kids can dip their toes in scary options for Halloween and dress up as anything from a mummy to a werewolf, keeping it simple with a plastic mask or opting for an elaborate head-to-toe costume. Mum can explore the wide array of women’s fancy dress costumes available, touching on her enchantress side with sexier costumes, such as a maid or a nurse, or engage in more traditional and family-friendly options, such as a witch costume that uses simple components, such as a pointed hat and paste-on nose. Anyone from Dad to the littlest tyke can choose from accessories, makeup kits, and clothing, too, to create a unique look. Indulge in all the fun and creativity of dressing up by looking into your fancy dress options.
