Today’s suggested fancy dress theme is easy to understand.
We think a tribute to one of the great pioneers of British pop is called for, as in October (9th) it would have been John Lennon’s 70th birthday, had he not died tragically on December 8th 1980, aged just 40. To be honest, October was all about Halloween, which is why poor ol’ John had to wait in the wings for a few weeks!
We would have suggested dressing up as Beatles Song Titles, but as our earlier blog on doing this with Cliff Richard’s songs was met with a stony silence we thought we’d just keep it simple. A 1960s theme obviously suggests itself and of course we can offer some great 60s costumes from the early ages of the Beatles, through to the more psychedelic era. A theme that does crop up occasionally is dressing up as one of the characters on the front of the Sergeant Pepper album. With stars such as Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, Mae West & the Beatles themselves gracing the cover, it certainly offers plenty of scope. However, as John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s son Sean was also born this day in 1975, you could always make it a really groovy event, by not only including costumes from the 1960s but also the glam rock, Abba and disco costumes of the 1970s. Props n Frocks has a huge range of 1970s costumes for men and women in stock for next working day delivery.
