Historical Fancy Dress Ideas

  2. 2. Have you got a big fancy dress party coming up? If so the theme might be historic figures.
  3. 3. In this presentation, I’ll be taking a look at some of the best historic figures you can dress up as.
  4. 4. #1 – MARILYN MONROE She is an icon to millions and remembered for her fashion and personality.
  5. 5. #1 – MARILYN MONROE Everyone remembers the scene from The Seven Year Itch and for that reason, the white dress has become one of the most popular dressing up outfits or all time.
  6. 6. #2 A KNIGHT Dressing up as a knight is a great idea for a medieval themed party.
  7. 7. #2 A KNIGHT You can buy the accessories and outfits from most fancy dress stores, online and high street.
  8. 8. #3 MOULIN ROUGE DANCER Since the film Moulin Rouge came out, there’s been a huge craze for the style of clothes when it comes to dressing up parties.
  9. 9. #3 MOULIN ROUGE DANCER Do you see yourself as Nicole Kidman?
  10. 10. #4 HENRY VIII If you fancy yourself as a king then why not go as Henry VIII?
  11. 11. #4 HENRY VIII The Tudor king was known for his lavish dress sense and beheading anybody that got on his wrong side.
  12. 12. #5 WW2 FEMALE OFFICER Those dark green jackets and pencil skirts look brilliant on women of all sizes.
  13. 13. #5 WW2 FEMALE OFFICER Why don’t you dress up in this costume, take the mic and treat us to a bit of Vera Lynn?
  14. 14. #6 70’S MAN It’s time to dig out the flares and platforms men! Just try not to make anybody too dizzy with your shirt okay?
  15. 15. #7 60’S DANCER Big hoop earrings, tight pencil dresses and boots that come up to the knee.
  16. 16. #7 60’S DANCER People used to actually go out like this? If this is the style that tickles your pickle, you can find these outfits in most stores.
  17. 17. #8 ROBIN HOOD There’s lots of rumours and speculation about the truth in the stories about Robin Hood. Fancy dress wise, it’s one of the best male costumes.
  18. 18. #8 ROBIN HOOD If you don’t mind wearing tights of course.
  19. 19. #9 CLEOPATRA Can you walk like an Egyptian?
  20. 20. #9 CLEOPATRA Heavily made up eyes, lots of gold paint and bangles are just some of the things you’ll need to pull this off.
  21. 21. #10 GLADIATOR This is a great costume idea if you’re going to a film themed party or just a fancy dress party in general. Just don’t forgot to buy some sandals to match the outfit.
  22. 22. #10 GLADIATOR Shields, swords and trainers just don’t go.
  23. 23. #11 CAVEWOMAN All you need to pull this outfit off is a dress that looks like it’s made out of tiger skin or fur (fake of course).
  24. 24. #11 CAVEWOMAN You’ll also need a club of some sort. Plastic or inflatable will do the trick.
  25. 25. #12 TOGA MAN If you’re going to a college party or Greek themed event the chances are there will be some people dressed up in Togas.
  26. 26. #12 TOGA MAN This is probably one of the cheapest costumes about as all you need is an old white bedsheet.
