The night of the Eurovision Song Contest is a great one for throwing a fancy dress party. Allocate your guests a competing country to dress up as, and serve up lots of hearty Austrian food since this year the event is being broadcast from Vienna. Your party invitations could be designed as postcards from Vienna – easily done with the use of an online card printing service or a little know-how on the laptop. Introduce a Eurovision sweepstake if your guests fancy a flutter, look up some Eurovision drinking game rules if your guests are that way inclined, and don’t forget to compile a Eurovision playlist of past winners (and losers…!) that includes the following gems:
- Lipstick – Jedward (Ireland 2011)
- Hard Rock Hallelujah – Lordi (Finland 2006)
- Waterloo – ABBA (Sweden 1974)
- All The Things She Said- TaTu (Russia 2003)
- Love Shine A Light – Katrina and the Waves (UK 1997)
- Wild Dances – Ruslana (Ukraine 2004)
- Ooh Aah… Just a Little Bit – Gina G (UK 1996)
Check out our decades-inspired fancy dress if you fancy yourself a bit of a 70’s ABBA look, or consider our 80’s spandex Rock God pants if you’re keen to strut your stuff. Our Gothic range would also serve any aspiring metal heads and rockers on Eurovision night – the Tattoo Shirt or Sleeve are great accessories for a music-inspired fancy dress costume. We also stock a range of wild and wonderful wigs and face paint sets for those of you wanting to create a customised Eurovision fancy dress costume with a bit of extra creative flair.
Alternatively, represent the country you’re supporting by pulling on a stretchy Morphsuit in your country’s flag colours. Of the Eurovision participating states, we stock suits for those representing the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Holland and Spain. These skin-tight all-in-ones are double stitched for your utmost safety and modesty, and feature double zippers to keep you extra safe once inside. The Morphsuit’s clever spandex-mix material lets you see through the face covering easily, too. Keeping your Eurovision costume to a simple one-piece allows greater flexibility for future fancy dress use as well. These suits look brilliant in groups and are great fun for festivals: mud free fun for everyone!
Happy Eurovision 2015! We love to know what fun our customers get up to in their Crazy Wizard fancy dress costumes, so share your selfies and group shots with us on Facebook and Twitter. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #CrazyWizardFancyDress before you hit share.
