Pirates Fancy Dress
One of the most sought themes, pirate costumes can be worn to virtually any general themed costume party, and have been made even more popular due to the famous Disney movie – pirates of the carribean.

Ranging from beautiful Hawaiian skirts, shirts and flower necklaces, Hawaiian costumes can be easily made from home, or bought online. Complete the evening with drink filled coconuts, and plenty of island cocktails.

80s Fancy Dress
