Fancy Dress and Party Games
Fancy Dress Themes are huge at the moment! Everyone loves dressing up and having theme-based parties. Theme-based parties work for all ages. You can match your games and party-entertainment to you theme. Also remember to reflect your theme in the food, invitation, decorations, birthday cake and music.
The reason dress up parties are becoming more and more of a success is because we all love the chance to have a bit of fun getting dressed up, but its not only dressing up that comes with themes, we also get to role play through our character. During this role playing we get to lose our inhibitions and can become different, more confident people. Dress up parties are a great way to break the cycle of boring and mundane social gatherings, as dressing up seems to be a fantastic icebreaker and conversation starter, so socialising becomes easier, especially if you cant see the other persons face! Dress up parties are a great way to bring all your family and friends together for a good laugh at each other.
Its a good idea to give out awards to the best-dressed person or most creative as this entices people and rewards those who put in a lot of effort. The best way to decide this is have a piece of paper per guest and let them decide!
Fancy Dress Themes:
Bad taste Party
Black & White
Doctors and Nurses (Timeless)
Glow in the Dark
Favourite Film Party
Ms Universe (Unique)
Toffs & Tarts
Wild Wild West Party
Cops and Robbers
While everyone is relaxing and feeling comfortable in their costume, add a bit more fun, begin the party games! It is best if your games match your theme, but any game is enjoyable! If you decide to have the Photo-Shoot theme, your games would relate around Photo-Shoots, games for the best pose, have family members pretending to be the paparazzi, even have a fake runway. Celebrity-Dress Up could mean you have a couch where you can interview the dress up celebrities. Ms Universe theme could mean that all the guest have to perform their own special talent or explain "how they would change the world". With the Glam Rock theme, have a competition for the best air guitar! With the Wild Wild West theme, you could have money (chocolate gold coins) buried in different locations for your guests to find. All games work in dress up, because everyone looks funny and is willing to have a go! Try making up your own! Have your Say
