Today’s Fancy Dress Theme is couples – aah how romantic!
We mentioned the 80’s a few days ago and of course Julia Roberts who was born on October 28th 1967, had her first teenage debut in 1988 in the film ‘Mystic Pizza’. However, probably her most popular role to date is that of Vivian Ward in the 1990 romantic film ‘Pretty Woman’. We might suggest that Romantic Couples could be the theme today. But, if the role of a ‘ho’ is not for you, there are hundreds of others we could mention. For a start there is the original fairy tale behind the Pretty Woman theme; Cinderella and her Prince Charming, or other popular pantomime and literary characters such as Romeo and Juliet or Heathcliff and Cathy from ‘Wuthering Heights’.
Alternatively you might choose to look at Films and Musicals which are often peppered with Romance, such as Rhett Butler and Scarlet O’Hara from ‘Gone with the Wind’ (we stock some lovely costumes that are ideal for a Scarlett O’Hara costume).; or Christine and the Phantom of the Opera, or Princess Fiona and Shrek.
History and mythology also have some great romantic couples, from Cleopatra and Mark Anthony to Helen of Troy and Paris, to Lancelot and Guinevere; Maid Marian and Robin Hood to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, the list is endless. We’re sure you will have some great ideas for this theme and naturally Props ’n’ Frocks is the place to help you make your dreams come true.
