Sophie Eades

So you've been invited to a fancy dress party and you've left it to the last minute to sort out your costume...No worries! Billy has got you covered with these quick and easy fancy dress costume ideas!
  1. Tourist: Wear a loud Hawaiian shirt, shorts, sunglasses, a straw hat, and a camera around your neck. Add a map and a fanny pack for extra detail.

  2. Mime Artist: Dress in black and white stripes, add white face paint, black gloves, and a beret. Don't forget the exaggerated facial expressions.

  3. 80s Workout Enthusiast: Neon leggings, leg warmers, a headband, and a brightly coloured leotard or tank top. Complete the look with big hair and some wristbands.

  4. Greek God/Goddess: A white sheet or fabric draped as a toga, some gold accessories, and sandals. Add a laurel wreath for extra authenticity.

  5. Detective: Wear a trench coat, a fedora, and carry a magnifying glass. Add a fake moustache and a notepad for sleuthing.

  6. Rock Star: Tight jeans, a band t-shirt, a leather jacket, and lots of accessories. Use temporary hair dye or a wig, and don't forget the sunglasses and air guitar.

  7. Superhero: Use leggings and a matching long-sleeve shirt, and create a cape from fabric. Add a mask and make a simple logo out of felt or cardboard.

  8. Zombie: Old clothes with rips and tears, pale face makeup with dark circles around the eyes, and some fake blood. Messy hair and a slow, shuffling walk complete the look.

  9. Book Character: Dress as a character from a favourite book. Examples include a wizard from "Harry Potter" with a robe and wand, or Sherlock Holmes with a deerstalker hat and pipe.

  10. Garden Gnome: Red cone hat, blue shirt, and brown or khaki pants. Add a fake white beard and a belt. Carry a small gardening tool or a flower pot for extra effect.

These ideas are simple to put together with items you might already have at home or can easily find at a second hand shop. If you want to spice things up and make your outfit
