All this talk of the Royal Wedding has put us in a rather patriotic mood which brings us on nicely to our newest set of fancy dress costumes – our Home Guard uniforms. Think Dad’s Army and you’ve hit Pike, or rather the nail, on the head.
You could easily join Captain Mannering and the team with this World War II uniform in khaiki green which comes already adorned with authentic home guard badges. By wearing this you’d be able to steal a march from your friends.
For those of a more Germanic persuasion, there’s always the German Gestapo officer fancy dress costume. This very authentic – and rather intimidating – ensemble includes black jacket and trousers, silver buttons, red arm band and peaked officer’s hat. Black boot covers and a belt complete the outfit.
For the rather more dashing officer though, there’s always the aviator costume (think Armstrong and Miller’s RAF pilots). A faux leather zip up jacket with fur trim, boot covers, white scarf and hilarious flying helmet make this a fancy dress outfit that’s sure to make any appearance take off.
Ladies – you shouldn’t feel left out of things. We’ve a rather striking female wartime officer costume for you. This tight-fighting jacket and skirt set, with gold buttons, has a sexy peaked hat. Very Marlene Dietrich if you please.
