  • Embrace your Outer Villain - In Costume

    You’ve been invited to a party and the theme is ‘Villains’. In today’s politically correct world, you will be better off steering clear of real-life criminals or infamous people who were around in living memory – especially if they are alive today. Don’t do a ‘Prince Harry’ and dress up as a Nazi – bad idea. Look further back in history, or, better still, opt for a fictional character and you will have plenty of scope.

    Real-life Villains throughout History:

    • Jesse James
    • Bonnie and Clyde
    • Guy Fawkes
    • Richard III
    • Edward Teach / Blackbeard
    • Vlad the Impaler
    • Attila the Hun


    Fancy dress is all about having fun, so don’t get too serious with your villain costume. Maybe there will be children attending this event, so you don’t want to wear something too terrifying. If these bad guys are child friendly enough to make it into Disney films, then they are child friendly enough to attend the Villain Fancy Dress Party. An added bonus is that most children will recognise these costumes and can dress up as these characters themselves...

    Disney Villains:

    • Cruella de Vil – 101 Dalmations
    • Captain Hook – Peter Pan
    • Horned King – The Black Cauldron
    • Jafa – Aladdin
    • Gaston – Beauty and the Beast
    • Maleficent – Sleeping Beauty
    • Evil Queen Grimhilde / Witch – Snow White
    • Ursula – The Little Mermaid
    • Mother Gothel – Tangled
    • Queen of Hearts – Alice in Wonderland
    • Scar – The Lion King

    Queen of Hearts

    Maybe you want to get creative with your outfit. Here are some other well-known fictional characters…

    Other Fictional Villains:

    • The Big Bad Wolf – Red Riding Hood
    • The Joker – Batman
    • Mr Burns – The Simpsons
    • Medusa – Greek Mythology
    • Darth Vador – Star Wars

    Maybe you don’t want to narrow your costume down to one specific character? So you could choose a stereotype instead, which is a great idea if you're attending as a group:

    Pirates are often thought of with tropical Irelands in the Caribbean. Generally these Caribbean Islands were the perfect places to hide when they were planning to launch an attack on merchant vessels. Pirates would hang out in safe havens where their ships could be repaired safely. Most of these Islands would have plenty of fresh food such as fish, cattle and fruit. The seas would be full of Merchant ships which would be carrying gold, silver and other valuables. This would be perfect bounty for pirates.

    There were also other pirates such as Barbary Corsairs who sailed from the African Coast. Pirates were also very able seamen and would constantly be in the hunt for treasures. Pirates have often made the big screen with Captain Blackbeard, Captain Hook and of course most recently Captain Jack Sparrow.
