The Zoo @ Rehab

The Zoo is coming to Rehab and fancy dress is definitely on the cards! We have great ideas, from face paint, to animal onesies and accessories.

Animal onesies.

In store, we have full animal costumes which are usually made as onesies. They are comfy, easy to wear and look great! We have lots of different animals, such as gorillas, chickens, crocodiles and more! These costumes are very easy to put together, as you need no accessories. We even have some amazing quality animal costumes for hire.

Here is a link to a crocodile costume on our website.

Animal accessories

We also have a collection of different animal fancy dress accessories. We have items like animal kits, which include things like tails, ears, noses and more. We also have separate pieces, such as ears, noses and tails to add to your costume. These are great for people with a more laid back approach. We also have children's plastic animal masks.

Face Paint.

Face paint is a great way to add a little flair to your costume and at Fancy Dress Fanatics, we have lots of it. We have a huge collection of face paint from brands like Snazaroo and Smiffy's. Face paint works for anyone and there are plenty of simple designs that would work great.

Those of you with an artistic eye could make your face paint the focus of the costume, by really taking the time to add lots of detail.

UV Rave at Walkabout

One of the events at UWE Freshers this year is a UV rave at Walkabout. We have lots of items to buy in store that would be perfect for this event.

Face paint.

We have a huge selection of regular face paint and also UV face paint.

 UV face paint isn't complicated, most people just paint random patterns with dots and lines. It is very easy to do and complicated designs are not necessary. Even the most simple design will look great under UV light.

In store, we have some UV paint sticks. Application is very easy and you can create cool patterns with ease. The more
colour the better!

Morph suits are a great costume to wear with face paint, as it is eye catching, but not flashy so it doesn't overshadow the UV paint.

It is also a great idea to wear lots of UV accessories, such as hats, jewellery, gloves etc..

Here is a link to a Second Skin costume on our website.

We also have official Morphsuits.

UWE Freshers Beach Party

Freshers is almost here and there are plenty of fancy dress events! One of which is the Freshers Beach Party. There are lots of things you could dress as, so here are some ideas!


The first thing people think of when they hear 'Beach fancy dress' is Hawaiian. These type of costume are easy to find and come in many different variations.

We  have lots of Hawaiian costumes, including grass skirts, hawaiian shirts and dresses.

Most of what makes a great Hawaiian costume are the accessories. We have lots of accessories that will make any costume amazing, such as Hawaiian lei, grass skirts, shell bras, headbands and wristbands.

We also have lots of fun props such as coconut drinking cups and flower straws.
We also have lots of inflatables such as flamingoes, monkeys, parrots, sharks and more!

Here is a link to a Hawaiian man costume on our website.

Baywatch is a very popular fancy dress theme and works very well for the beach theme. We have lots of officially liscenced Baywatch costumes for both men and women. We also have some prop inflatable floats, (pictured below with costume).

The official Baywatch costumes are comfortable and easy to wear. Perfect for parties.

Here is a link to our women's Baywatch costume.

One of the events at UWE Freshers this year is a 'Cat Face Party'. This means one thing: face paint.
This is a very easy theme to pull off and requires little effort. All you need is normal clothes and face paint. You could interpret this theme in a different way, although the basic face paint is more likely.

Face Paint

For most, simple cat makeup is enough. Just paint on a nose and whiskers and you're set! However, if you have an artistic eye, you could go more detailed and create an amazing face paint look. We have lots of face paint in lots of different colours for you to choose from. We also have face paint crayons to use for the basic cat face paint.

Most people tend to wear simple black clothing whilst dressing as a cat, or just match your clothes to the colours of your face paint if you want to use colours other than black.
You could even accessorize with cat ears and a tail. We have instant cat kits in our store which include ears, a tail and sometimes a nose or a bow tie.
