Escapade Launches World’s First Interactive Halloween Flash Site

Escapade fancy dress has unveiled www.halloweenescapade.com, an interactive and innovative flash based website based around Halloween and designed for user entertainment.

As one of the UK’s predominant fancy dress companies, Escapade have learned a thing or two about Halloween in its 28 year history. The company has combined this knowledge with its love for the fun of the season and have created a Halloween website unlike any other in the world.

The elaborate flash site allows users the chance to really get to enjoy the season of Halloween in a completely interactive and unique way. The stunning site is set out like an adventure land and the longer that the user spends on it, the more they uncover, find and enjoy.

The one of a kind site features a fully interactive flash adventure with graphically enhanced games, food recipes, a plethora of essential Halloween freebies, short stories, cocktail recipes, Halloween stories from around the world and articles ranging from the history of Halloween to legends about notorious characters associated with the season.

An even more exciting feature of the site is that it changes completely between day and night. During the day time the site has content and graphics that are family friendly and aimed at children, but after 7:30pm all of the content on the site alters drastically with a completely new selection of graphic games and content, making it worth a visit at least twice. The site is the first of its kind in the Halloween market and an amazing development for the festive season.

Escapade Announces Arrival Of Avatar Costumes

Escapade has announced its recent acquisition of a large selection of officially licensed Avatar costumes from American costume manufacturer Rubies.

Escapade’s Director, Bhupendra Maisuria said: “We are really excited by the arrival of the Avatar costumes. Almost everyone who has seen the film wonders what it would be like to live in Pandora or to be one of the Na’vi people and while Escapade can’t get you to Pandora, we can now at least help with the fantasy of becoming your favourite Avatar character.”

Escapade Stocks Official Karate Kid Costumes In Time For Film Release

Escapade, fancy dress suppliers, has introduced the officially licensed Karate Kid costumes to its stock listings to coincide with the release of the remake of the 1980s cult classic.

To celebrate the launch of the film, Escapade is stocking the officially licensed fancy dress costumes from the 1980s film, including favourites Cobra Kai and Daniel San costumes.

Escapade is one of the few suppliers in the UK that has managed to get its hands on the official Karate Kid costumes.

Pendra Maisuria, chief executive officer of Escapade, said: “We are looking forward to the release of the new Karate Kid film and hope that it can live up to the huge success of its iconic 1980s predecessor. In anticipation for the new film we will be wearing our officially licensed 80s Karate Kid, Daniel San and Cobra Kai costumes around the shop.”

The remake, featuring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith (Will Smith’s son), follows the same coming-of-age storyline as the original but is set in China rather than the United States of America.

Smith, who plays the role of the plucky youngster, is no longer Daniel Larusso – but goes by the name of Dre Parker. After being bullied in his new school by the boyfriend of his love interest, Dre gets the tuition of the elderly Mr Han (played by Chan) as he prepares to fight for his dignity – and the girl – at an upcoming karate tournament.
