One of the most iconic maps is The London Underground, so why not use
this a base for a brilliant fancy dress theme?
Although this costume theme may seem a little daunting at first, we can offer you a huge range of potential London Underground costume ideas to make choosing your costume very easy. so whether you are looking to do something very simple (Beehive wig for High Barnet) or more involved (Wombles for Wimbledon), we have the tube costume for you.
Mid-week and we note that today many people are celebrating Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Day – don’t say we never tell you anything! Historically, GIS is what we used to call a map, but of course with the developments of technology (which we seem to be spending a little time celebrating this week), the field covers a very much wider area nowadays (in more ways than one). It also involves much more exciting things like being able to check what your cat does at night, thanks to its GPS collar, and find out if people are actually ‘on the train’ or sitting in the station buffet.
And how can we celebrate this day through the medium of costume? (We have to say that, looking at the map of GIS events, only London and Plymouth seem to be doing anything for it here in the South of England). It’s a long time since we suggested the concept of a Scavanger Hunt, where teams are set tasks to achieve on a given route or area, whilst also collecting various every-day and/or unusual items. Although, in these fuel-conscious days, the car-based ones are less common, ones on foot and, of course, in fancy dress, can be a great fundraising idea, especially as you might be looking for something to do for Children in Need, coming up at the end of this week.
