Ideas for a Fancy Dress Party
I need some ideas for a costume party that I am going to next weekend. Obviously due to my interest in the environment and specifically trees I want to pick a fancy dress outfit that fits this theme. When going to a fancy dress party I usually like to plan early to ensure I do not end up choosing the first outfit that comes to my mind when I walk into the costume shop. So my intial thoughts so far are a tree outfit or something like a bear costume. I like to remind people as often as I can about climate change and the effect cutting down large portions of our forests is having on our environment and the Earth’s climate. So perhaps I could communicate this message through my choice of costume and with perhaps some cosmetic changes to the outfit. I might be able to sew on some slogans on to the front of the tree or add effects like a chainsaw and perhaps tears rolling down the trunk of the tree. Let me know if you have any creative ideas as to which costume to choose or ideas for customizing suitable fancy dress costumes. I am really looking forward to this party and hope to make a bit of an impression with my costume. The main reason I love fancy dress parties so much is because for that night you can be whoever or whatever character you want to be, when you put on the outfit you subsume the characteristics and personality of that particular character. You can also make a strong statement with an appropriate outfit which I am hoping to do with a costume that highlights the damage we do to the environment. It may not be much but I like to use every opportunity I have to remind people as to how much damage is done every day to our environment. When we are living in our busy lives we tend to forget about the natural world we live in and that our grandchildren and their grandchildren will live in. Wearing a statement outfit will not change things over night but every little bit helps and the more people are reminded about the outside world the more likely more and more people will do something to help save that world.
