Escapade has released a fancy dress guide for this years biggest summer festivals. The guide highlights the fancy dress themes for festivals across the UK and provides suggestions for fancy dress costumes that match the 2010 festival themes.
Fancy dress costumes go hand in hand with festivals because of the feeling of escapism both bring and it’s common to find many festival goers dressed up, whether it’s for the main stage acts or to see the comedy/theatre acts.
Some of the summer festivals are trying to break records while others have entire days dedicated to fancy dress. Camp Bestival, taking place over July 30th, 31st and 1st of August in Dorset, is attempting a world record at the largest ever Mad Hatters Tea Party.
The Big Chill will also be attempting to break a world record on the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th of August in Hertfordshire. The festival has teamed up with Film 4, Danny Boyle and Warp films and is encouraging festival goers to come as fancy dress zombies. Those who dress as zombies will be filmed for a movie in an attempt to set the world record for the largest ever audience participation zombie gathering.
