Why not dress up for the Royal Wedding!
March 24th 2011
The Wedding of the Decade - the Fancy Dress Party of the Decade!Prince William and Kate Middleton are getting married on April 29th, 2011 and up and down the country there will be street parties, Fetes and parties galore.
Everyone else has to put up with watching Disney princesses and Princes getting married in cartoon form - now for once in your life you can see the real thing!
We've got piles of costumes and accessories in stock and when we are sold out we'll happily find out who has them and send you there - service with a good old fashioned British smile!
Are you going to be on the procession route? Be seen in British Themed Fancy Dress and make a big impact!If you are planning to be lining the procession route of the Royal Wedding along Whitehall or the Mall you'll certainly need Union Jack Flags to wave which you can get right here. If you want to make a bigger impact (remember this will be filmed and shown all around the world) a national costume (like a Union Jack mini dress), facepaint or hat is a real must have!
Staying at home? Shame on you! Have a Royal Wedding Costume Party.Even if you are just watching the event on telly with friends this is a great chance to make it really fun by making it a costume event or even just going to Royal Wedding events in costume as an traditional English hero like Robin Hood, a Victorian Hero costume like Sherlock Holmes or maybe just putting together a Baldrick outfit.
Here are some other great themes from Britain and the Commonwealth that you might want to wear at royal wedding costume events.
Kings & Queens of EnglandQueen Elizabeth, Queen regnant of England and Ireland - remember Blackadder!! Queen Victoria was the monarch of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and Empress of India. Henry VIII, King of England, Lord of Ireland and claimant to the Kingdom of France. Henry was the second monarch of the House of Tudor. Great costume for those of us who are less sylph-like!
HerosHoratio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, 1st Duke of Bronté - often considered the Greatest English Hero.
Saint George - if you don't fancy the armour (shame on you) then at least the "Colours of Saint George", or St George's Cross are a white flag with a red cross, frequently borne by entities over which he is patron (England)
Or how about Winston Churchill, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Charles Darwin, William Shakespeare, Sir Isaac Newton or William Wilberforce
