By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

If you are thinking about having a themed party and you want something that will likely be good fun for everybody invited consider a 70s fancy dress?

Sometimes when folks arrange a themed party it can really be a bit limiting when it comes to choosing a dress-up costume, however with a 70s fancy dress get together this is really not going to be a problem. Whenever you sit and think back to the 1970s (if you're old enough to recollect them...) then it won't be long before you realise just how many different styles of outfit there are to pick from. The seventies had quite a few different stages, from hippies decked out in kaftans and loon pants to the later days of gold medallions and the disco look which was immortalised by the likes of The Bee Gees. The decade actually went through quite a lot of changes when that it ended. The options in 70s fancy dress costumes is truly enormous.

There are some certain things that epitomise the ten years and, when choosing your outfit, are fairly crucial. Consider things that were firm favourites with people such as 'bell-bottoms', over-sized sunglasses and pork chop sideburns. Platform shoes are another very popular choice for 70s fancy dress as are the 'glam rock' outfits which were worn by the likes of Slade, The Sweet, Mud and David Bowie (when he was in his Ziggy Stardust phase). There are also some great wigs available to allow you to complete your look. Make sure that you remember loud shirts with flared collars. You can get some really good ideas for costumes just by watching some old clips of singers or television programmes from the time. Another truly iconic outfit that is always a popular choice when it comes to 70s fancy dress is the Elvis Presley studded white cat suit. Don't be surprised if more than one of your guests arrives wearing it...

Depending on simply how much work you need to put in there are several typically 'retro' activities that you could include into your 70s fancy dress party. You could potentially arrange some suitable activities such as 'Twister' and 'Ker-Plunk' along with such things as 'Space Hopper' racing. A rapid look through the web will soon remind you of many other seventies games, toys and pass-times you could use for your special occasion.
