Fun & Games Costume Ideas

Fun & Games Fancy Dress Theme

Those who have their own sports kit, might decide this costume theme is the easy option. But if you want to be more creative, why not consider looking at the theme from a different angle?Characters from Cluedo, playing cards (Ace of Spades, Queen or King of Hearts, etc.), chess pieces (e.g. knight, bishop, queen, king), Trivial Pursuit categories, computer games (Mario Brothers, Lara Croft, Sonic The Hedgehog), Dungeons and Dragons, war games, etc., are just some of the many avenues to explore with this theme.

Think about other famous board games like Monopoly, you could even dress up in a convict costume and say you are in jail. All you need is a little bit of lateral thinking.

Think about what other countries class as a sport, for example, bull fighting in Spain and Rodeo in America.

Our costume ideas contain links to relevant parts of this website, but you willalso have hire costume options as well, just ask a member of staff if you need to findout where a particular costume can be found.
