Halloween Fancy Dress

Costume parties where people dress up in a variety of fancy dress outfits are now most commonly held during Halloween celebrated on the 31st October. The name comes from the feast of All Hallows or All Saints Day celebrated on the 1st November in honor of all the saints. The Halloween festival is actually a celebration of the end of the harvest in Gaelic culture and spread to America with the Irish immigrants and became part of popular culture.
Halloween traditions include 'trick or treating', making bonfires, visiting haunted houses and of course dressing up in fancy dress costumes and attending costume parties. Halloween fancy dress themes usually involve dressing up in a scary fancy dress costume like traditional ghost costumes and witch costumes. More modern alternatives like the scary movie ghost costumes, Dracula and other vampire costumes, Darth Vader Costumes, Skeleton Costumes and other scary film characters like The Addams family and Leatherface, the star of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre are becoming increasingly popular.

Fancy Dress Hirea

The initial thought of most people when coming up with fancy dress party ideas is to hire a fancy dress costume. Fancy dress costume hire has the advantage of being able to return the costume after the party, but consider the fact that most fancy dress shops wont stock any where near the 10,000 fancy dress costumes online available from Jokers' masquerade, and many of which are in a variety of different sizes. There are a few fancy dress hire online options, but to date most don't offer a huge variety of costumes and you can never be sure what condition your costume will arrive in. Hiring a fancy dress costume can also work out more expensive than purchasing a cheap fancy dress costume, Jokers' Masquerade have a huge variety of online fancy dress costumes that are as cheap or cheaper than hiring a costume and because you own it and arrives brand new, this has to be a better deal.
