Summer holidays are sadly drawing to a close, so we were
extra excited to throw in a quick fancy dress party just before it ended. Mine do not go rummaging in their fancy
dress box quite as much anymore, but having a whole new selection of outfits
completely renewed their love of dressing up!
This pleased me no end, as I personally love the world of imagination
they enter when they are dressed for action or adventure. Plus the weather has been pretty lousy so it
was great to have an enjoyable indoor activity to keep the children
entertained, whilst the heavens opened!
were sent the Where’s Wally, Tinkerbell, Ant-Man and Horrible Histories
Gladiator fancy dress outfits from George so the boys and their friends could dress up and
have some fun. What impressed me was
the quality of the costumes for the price; ours varied from £12.50 to £13.50
each but if we had been buying for younger children there were even cheaper
options to pick from.
children on the other hand were naturally drawn to other things. Ant-Man enjoyed having a button to press on
the light up detachable belt. Where’s Wally? quite enjoyed having a hat and
glasses to try on his pet dog.

Tinkerbell enjoyed having the option to wear
wings or take them off depending on her mood and my brave and valiant gladiator
was pleased he had a shield to wave around theatrically. It certainly kept them out of mischief for a
few hours, meaning my friend and I could catch up and relax with a nice cuppa.
All in all it was a lovely little party, good friends
getting together, nice food and outfits that inspired play. It was funny watching the youngest children in
particular improvise they added an elf hat and Christmas ear muffs to accessorize their costumes, that’s the fabulous thing about fancy dress you can
sit back and see how creative they get with their outfits!!!
