Even though its the summer holidays, its always good to plan ahead for the ever popular Fancy dress party. With that in mind, the Family Panel have been checking out costume website Fancy Dress Ball to see what they have to offer.
Costume parties used to mean buying some old sheets or clothes from the local charity shop and using whatever "skills" in sewing you possessed to come up with something which most people would be baffled to name! Or it meant paying vast sums to hire slightly sweaty smelling costumes from the hire shop.
However times have changed and, just like most things, costumes are now available online and for a fraction of the prices we used to be forced to pay.
One such company is Fancy Dress Ball, who have an amazing and varied selection of outfits, wigs and accessories for all the family and all occasions.
Whether you are looking for a Halloween costumes of devils, gruesome beings or something less conventional, or perhaps for inspiration if you have a last minute costume to organise for a party, you can find it here.
Another popular costume choice, for parties or hen dos is sexy fancy dress- you can be as daring as you like and impress perspective partners with naughty costumes of sexy sailors and less than angelic angels from brands such as Eye Candy California Costumes and Leg Avenue.
Or, if you don't want to bare all (and who can blame you!) there is a vast selection of era costumes from the 60s, 70s and 80s fancy dress sections. These include everything from mini dresses, hippie chick wear and mullet wigs, not to mention fingerless gloves Madonna would have been proud of! Whether you remember the fashions of the times or not, the costumes are detailed and can be seen in sharp and clear images online.
Kids and adults are catered for, and prices are not going to scare you- wigs are priced from 7.99 and whole costumes for ladies start at £15.95, men's are from £22.99 and kids from £9.99.
You can pay securely online, or pick what you want and phone the local rate number. Costumes are then delivered to you at home. It really couldn't be easier.
So, next time you need a costume, check out Fancy Dress Ball.
