Into December and Christmas is well and truly on the horizon. Well actually for some it has been ‘on the horizon’ since August bank holiday (with a slight break for Halloween) and it tends to spread: We have noticed that Christmas meals/parties seem to start earlier every year and some firms even decide to have their ‘Christmas Party’ in January when people’s social calendars are less crowded and some of the venues are cheaper! Anyway, sticking to this side of December 25th (and if you have not already had your seasonal ‘do’), here at Props n Frocks we’re getting into top gear to help you with whatever festivities you have planned either to do with your work event or for your own private plans. We might say that we’ve the top gear to make you look good!
Take a look at our range of Christmas costumes – we have a large range at very cheap discounted prices – while stocks last!
Do’s & Don’t's of Work Fancy Dress:
- Make sure the costume is suitable for the job you do. If you have to bend over a lot, do not wear anything too short!
- Are you on your feet all day (or night)? Make sure you can wear appropriate footwear that you can wear comfortably, and that the costume is not too long, so you have to wear high heels
- Is your workplace cold, do you work outside? Make sure that any costume you choose is warm enough, or large enough to get more clothes on underneath.
- Is the area you work in clean? It may seem a strange thing to think about, but having a costume that touches the floor could lead to a cleaning charge, if your costume is hired.
- Are you likely to get stains on the costume? If you are a cook, or a hairdresser, it will be easy for things to splash the costume, so it is probably a better idea to purchase, rather than hire.
- Are there going to be children present? Do not wear anything scary!
- If you are trying to dress as a group? Make a note as to the sizes, and ages of all the relevant people. Everyone must be comfortable with your choice of theme. It may be prudent to actually contact your local fancy dress shop, (or us! ) to give you professional advice.
- Always have a couple of spares (even if it is an extra hat or two) someone will not turn up in the required theme, and this will encourage them to join in.
