Costumes beginning with the letter 'M'

The next in our series of blogs on costumes A-Z, perfect for those ever increasing 'come as something beginning with letter of the alphabet' themes, here's a huge list of ideas for fancy dress beginning with 'M'

Some are easily put together with bits at home, some more elaborate and needing to buy or hire, but hopefully there's enough here to inspire you with the perfect costume solution!

Got any ideas to add to the list? Pop a comment on this post with your own additions and we'll add them!

Fancy Dress Fanatics to Sponser Halloween themed Ashton Court RUN10K

We're very happy and excited to be sponsoring the annual  Ashton Court RUN10K which this year takes place on Saturday 26th October and has a Halloween theme!

As part of our sponsorship, we have supplied a number of costumes to the organisers of the event - which appeared in their promotional photo shoot for the Bristol Post.

The race usually attracts up to 2,000 runners, and this year, to add a bit of fun, everyone's encouraged to get dressed up, whether they're running or supporting the runners.

Those taking part help to raise thousands of pounds for the race's official charity, Cancer Research UK, which we're also very keen on helping with. Cancer Research UK is such an important charity and it's something that inevitably effects us all. We're just pleased to be involved and helping in any way to raise money for such a fantastic cause and very honoured to be invited to help!

To help the runners get dressed up, we'll also be offering them a 10% discount in our shop for Fancy Dress for the run and will have a stall at the event selling last minute fancy dress costumes and accessories.

New hire costumes ready for Halloween!


  
We're nearly there - the biggest night of the year for Fancy Dress, and as it's our first one, we couldn't be more excited!

We've been busy adding some more Halloweeny costumes to our hire collection ready for the spooky season and naturally, that meant another photoshoot!

And just to get ourselves in the mood, we got a brilliant Make Up Artist, Nora Morehead Calver (check out her website here), along to help out along with her assistant. Her make-up was excellent, and we'd highly recommend her to anyone. 

But fret not, if you can't afford a pro to do your make up (and your skills are as bad as mine!!!) we have some brilliant kits in stock ready for Halloween, including set-by-step Zombie Kits,
Zipper kits and VERY realistic 3D Temporary Tattoos by Tinsley Transfers. Just over here from America and REALLY realistic, with the added bonus of only taking 30 seconds to put on. Easy peasy and shockingly good!


We also added a few bits and pieces to our normal costumes, just to turn them into something for Halloween so we have more to choose from, turning Ringmasters into Devils, and Victorians into Vampires!

Not long to go now.... can't wait!!!
