Three affordable Christmas fancy dress ideas
Are you going to be naughty or nice this Christmas? There are plenty of Christmas fancy dress ideas and there is no need to spend a fortune on them. The benefit is that most of the time, you will have something in your wardrobe or a box tucked away that will work.
The Christmas Angel
If you really want to go simple, then the Christmas Angel is an excellent idea. You just need a white dress and something to work as a halo. There are chances that you already have a white dress or even a suit somewhere; if not, buy something that you will wear again. The halo can be made out of silver tinsel or just tin-foil! As Alexander the Meerkat says: Simples!
Santa’s Little Helper
Elf costumes are excellent Christmas fancy dress ideas and are relatively easy to put together. You just need a red or green dress – if you have one that has both, that is even better. Look out for some red and green knee high socks to match the dress.
The elf costume is even possible for men. All you need is a top and trousers in red and green – or even a pair of shorts will work. Again, look out for some red and green striped socks.The only things that you should need to buy for this costume is a hat and possibly some shoes.
Santa Clause or Mrs Clause
These Christmas fancy dress ideas are extremely popular and take very little time and money to put together. If you are handy with a needle and thread, consider buying some white fluff or cotton and sewing it to the hem of a little red dress or a red suit – depending if you are going as Santa or Mrs Clause.
For Santa, you will need some padding, which can easily be done with pillows. The only thing that you may need to buy is a beard. For Mrs Clause, there are chances that you will not need to buy anything other than the cotton wool – the red dress and black heels are all you need.
