    The forthcoming release of the smurfs 2 looks set to one of the summer blockbusters. Kids just love the to wear smurf fancy dress costumes in celebration and parents across the UK will be flocking to the cinema with their little ones for more smurf madness. Not surprising many of us adults also love the smurfs.

    Originally introduced in the 1958, many of us will have grown up with the smurfs from childhood and are now seeing our children enjoying the same characters. The new smurf franchise saw the first movie released in 2011.

    Such was the success of the first movie that it has spawned a sequel that looks to be just as entertaining as the first movie. With such a massive following of both adults and children, the smurfs 2 looks set to become another massive blockbuster. So what is it that really endears the smurfs to our hearts? So many people really get into the fancy dress spirit.

    The Hartlepool fans donned their annual fancy dress by turning as Smurfs to a game in London.

  • 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
    • Dr. Evil – Austin Powers
    • Voldemort – Harry Potter
    • Freddy Krueger – A Nightmare on Elm Street
    • Michael Myers – Halloween
    • The Wicked Witch of the West – The Wizard of Oz
    • The Shark – Jaws
    • Gru – Despicable Me
    • Magneto – Xmen
    • Chucky – Child’s Play
    • Gollum – The Lord of the Rings
    • Saruman – The Lord of the Rings
    • Bill Cutting, “The Butcher” – Gangs of New York
    • Mystique – Xmen
    • Bellatrix Lestrange – Harry Potter
    • Loki – Thor


    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:

  • Grange Students And Staff Help Boost Funds For Prom Night

    fancy dress grange-prom

    A fundraising day held by staff and Year 11 students at Shrewsbury’s Grange Secondary School has helped to boost funds for this year’s leavers’ prom.

    Both students and teachers donned fancy dress outfits for the fundraiser which was held last week at the Grange.

    Teacher Elaine Jones, who helped to organise the event, said that it had been a great success.

    “Every single penny from the day will be used towards prom night for the Year 11 students who will be leaving us in the summer,” she said.

    “It will help to pay for the food, decorations and the photographer – we are one of the few schools which actually stages its prom on school premises and it always turns out to be a wonderful community event.

    “The fundraiser was fantastic fun – it included a show at break time put on by the Year 11s and also a performance of Let’s Get Ready to Rumble by some brave members of staff.

    “During lunchtime students manned stalls in the hall including tombolas, cake sales and name the teddy.

    “The event gave students something to really be proud of as they were raising money for what will be a special evening for them as they leave the school at the end of the summer term.”
