Having been established for nearly 13 years, all of us at Props n Frocks Fancy dress have seen many Halloween’s come and go. As the Halloween season is upon us once again and even now, as in some would-be haunts, trained spiders are starting on the cobweb decorations, we ask ‘Do Girls Do Gruesome?’ We only ask
Ladies Sexy Witch Costume
because time and time again we’re finding that many of the Fairer Sex are wanting to keep themselves that way for Halloween. – They don’t mind doing the scary stuff, but they want to be pretty scary (and possibly a little sexy) as in a sexy Witch costume, a Glamorous Ghost or Dishy Devil Outfit. Whilst that’s obviously not a problem for us here at Props n Frocks as we have an extensive range to suit all shades of Spooky, we’re always keen to help those who want to delve a little deeper (six foot or so) and get down and dirty. Emily The Corpse Bride
from Tim Burton’s film admittedly offered opportunities for a knock ‘em dead look, and chances are with a new Baron Samedi (Voodoo Lord of the Dead) costume on the market this year, a counterpart Baroness cannot be far behind, so skeletal could be the seasonal style (like it ever left the catwalk in the first place – Miaow!) On the other hand, one growth area for equal opportunities (death being a great leveller) is with Zombies, where anyone can be as glam or gory as they wish. They are popular film fodder too – from the legendary Dawn/Day/etc., of the Dead through to Shaun and Zombieland. Next year Zom-com meets Rom-com (or Sick Chick Flick) with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Take a look at our Zombie costumes - It’ll be to die for.
Madonna is an international favourite for all ages, with astonishing independence and here-to-stay power. Having not necessarily been too highly rated as a natural talent, particularly at the beginning of her career, she went on to prove the doubters wrong with her charisma and chutzpah and continues to top the charts today. Often controversial, she has continually reinvented herself, and with such hit songs and videos spanning the decades as Like a Virgin, Like a Prayer, Vogue and Ray of Light, it is of no surprise that so many women seek to copy her style through a range of Queen of Pop themed fancy dress costumes, jewellery, wigs and other accessories.
The Madonna style ladies fancy dress range at Props n Frocks includes the iconic gold outfit. As well as the famous cone bra, it includes a flesh coloured corset top which is elasticated at the back to fit more flexibly, as well as a hair scrunchie and hot pants. Also available is a dark dress to which could be added whalenet tights, a wig and lace gloves, as well as the 1980s Pop Star Costume with a gold basque. Other costumes available include the 1980s Diva costume, which is another outfit reminiscent of Madonna’s 1980s costume style. It includes a dress, wristbands, leggings, a headpiece, lilac chain and belt. Other accessories on sale to complete the look include tutus, wigs and eyelashes. For the ultimate 1980s Madonna costume, Props n Frocks is the only online fancy dress shop any lady will ever need.
As it is for men, the 1980s fancy dress style for women is all about excess: bigger, louder and brasher simply ruled in the eighties. To many this means such a predominant style of dress of the era as ra-ra skirts or tailored suits with large shoulder pads, with the flamboyant New Romantic look being particularly popular. Many others, meanwhile, like to dress in the style of specific eighties pop bands, rock stars, superheroes or film icons such as Madonna, Wonder Woman, Fame, Blondie or Bananarama.
Women looking for that perfect outfit to evoke the 1980s power dressing era for their own fancy dress party will find just what they need at Props n Frocks. The shop sells a number of 1980s Madonna style costumes, including the gold outfit with cone bra, hair scrunchie and hot pants, and the 1980s Pop Star Costume with a gold basque. Other costumes available include the 1980s Diva costume (again Madonna inspired), the 80s Funky Pop Star costume with under top, lace over blouse, belt, net and lace skirt and leggings, and the 1980s Snake Jacket, available in assorted colours and sizes.
Additional accessories on sale for women at Props n Frocks include ladies fancy dress jewellery, wigs (such as the Cher Curly Wig), neon or lace gloves, microphones, fishnet tights and chokers. A lady wishing to get hold of a Madonna costume or any other outfit or accessory for a fancy dress party need look no further than Props n Frocks.

A Hen Night is a party that is given for a bride to be, and usually takes place a few weeks before the wedding. Traditionally the Hen Night was the evening before the big day itself, but this does not occur that often anymore due to the bride wanting to look her best in preperation for The Big Day.
A Hen Night usually only has female guests, but sometimes there are exceptions to the rule.
The night itself could either be a meal with close female friends and family, or a huge party. It is best practice for a friend of the bride to organise the Hen Party, should one take place.
More and more people are trying to find something spectacular to do on the Hen Night, such as hiring a penthouse suite. However, the majority of Hen Parties that take place now seem to have the bride to be and guests in fancy dress.
Fancy dress outfits have also become more extravagant – gone are the days of nurse, police woman and nun costumes, and in are the more unique and unpredictable fancy dress ideas that companies such as PropsnFrocks have to offer.
If you are planning a Hen Night for someone and are looking for the perfect ladies fancy dress, contact us here at PropsnFrocks and we will be happy to meet your requirements.
There’s nothing quite like the feeling you get when you know you look fabulous. Every woman has experienced it at some stage and in varying levels. Fancy dress parties are the best way to experience this feeling, on an even grander scale. Men will never quite understand how, for ladies, fancy dress parties can be so amazing. Perhaps it has something to do with stepping into another persona for a short while, or maybe it has more to do with having a great excuse to wear clothes you wouldn’t normally wear and make-up you wouldn’t dream of wearing in daylight. Whatever it is, fancy dress parties are made for women!
