Abba Fancy Dress Costumes

Abba Fancy Dress

ABBA,the legendary Swedish pop sensation may not be active anymore, but heir legacy lives on, over a quarter of a century since the band last performed together.

The four piece pop music group formed in Sweden barely into the start of the 70s decade – November 1970 to be precise. To think of the 70s today, you can not avoid thinking of ABBA.

And when it comes to fancy dress parties, particularly disco fancy dress parties or 70s fancy dress parties, you just know that there is going to be a demand and even expectation for guests to make an appearance wearing ABBA fancy dress< costumes.

Funnily enough, I was not a big ABBA fan for quite a while in terms of getting to know and understand the band. Their music I have always liked but I never really knew anything about them. But of course knowing anything about a band is not necessary in order to have an appreciation for their music. And their music sure was – and still is, fun! The lyrics were catchy. And the outfits were fantastic! It is no wonder that ABBA fancy dress is now synonymous with disco fancy dress or 70s fancy dress parties.

They simply are one of the biggest and most enduring non active bands of all time. It is no surprise that many a radio station the world over continues to play their music to this day just as it is no wonder that they are one of the world’s best selling music bands having amassed almost 370 million record sales world wide. In fact at the current time, they are the world’s second best selling pop artists in history as well as holding the title of second best selling band in history. That’s quite an achievement from a band that recorded in a language that was not even their mother tongue to enter into the mainstream in such a domineering fashion. The band at number 1 of course were native speakers of the language they sung in – The Beatles.

But let us get back to ABBA fancy dress – the long flowing hair, the shiny outfits, the glamour. 70s fashion as it is has left a long lasting impression through to today. When it comes to ABBA, you simply can not think of the 70s without thinking of ABBA.

borrowing very much from the disco look of those times. So they have bright colors, they are shiny and all they need is a disco ball to show their best qualities.

One of Abba’s most popular songs is Dancing Queen. So there is no wonder that this costume has many variants.

Another Abba fancy dress costume is the Abba Dress. It is formed from a short, white dress and a stylish belt. This one is ideal for the hot summer nights when a tight and long costume will make you feel uncomfortable. Of course, other costumes can be included in this category as they share the same 70s style, but they just don’t have any reference to Abba. But there is no problem in buying the Foxy Cleopatra Diva costume, for instance, and say that you are one of the singers from the band, as they wore it in videos too.

Abba is a cultural trademark of Sweden and of the disco period around the world. So many people grew up listening to their music and so many still do, as their songs are remixed and re – launched on the market from time to time. Offering them a tribute by choosing the Abba fancy dress costumes at a party is a pretty good idea.

The Best Halloween Costume Ideas Ever!
By Jillian Gallo

The best Halloween costume ideas ever are different to each person. That’s because which Halloween costume you like best is a matter of personal taste. You may like the Gothic Vampire best, while I like the Fairy. There are some costume themes that are popular every year, and some styles come and go depending on the blockbuster movies or cartoon characters that happen to be popular right now. Let’s take a look at some of the classic costume styles that are popular year after year.

Superhero and Villain Halloween Costume Ideas

Superheroes and their worst Villains are always a popular costume idea for Halloween parties and trick or treating. This year Batman is popular again, and so are some of his most famous villains…The Joker, The Scarecrow, Cat Woman and Poison Ivy. Logan, of the X-Men is also pretty hot this season…we know him as Wolverine. Transformers have been a popular kids costume theme for years, but thanks to the release of their new movie, Revenge of the Fallen, they are super hot this year. Bumblebee, Optimus Prime and Megatron are the three most popular Autobot costumes for boys.

For girls and women there is Supergirl and Wonder Women to turn each of us into crime fighters with special powers that make us Super! Spider Girl costumes are also pretty popular with the ladies year after year. The really super thing about these superhero costumes is that they work for both male and female costume ideas. It’s just fun to have these extra special powers and crime fighting abilities, even if it is only for one day. And it’s fun to be one of those very bad guys…just for a day too.

Celebrity Halloween Costume Ideas

If your not going to be a Superhero, you might want to dress up like a Celebrity. A celebrity like Hannah Montana are all fun dress up costumes to wear. Movie and TV stars are as close as you can get to Superheroes without actually being one. For boys there are beloved characters like Ben 10 or Dan Kuso of Bakugan are a close relative to superheroes.

For teens and adults there are some real oldies, but goodies costume ideas out there. Be nostalgic and get dressed up as Marilyn Monroe and Elvis from any of his hit movies…or from his music. There’s Michael Jackson costumes with his outfits from Thriller, Bad…and the beautiful sparkling Billie Jean outfit. For the ladies, how about that beautiful and funny lady from I Love Lucy…Lucille Ball, that famous comedian from old time TV.

Then there are some adult funny costumes based on characters like the Flintstones…yep, Fred and Wilma, Barney and Betty and even Bam Bam and Pebbles are popular adult and teen costumes.

Gothic Halloween Costume Ideas

Sometimes, it’s the make up possibilities that attract us to a particular character we can dress up as. The Gothic theme is always a popular one, but this year the gothic costumes for teenagers and adults are really moving out of the stores quickly. The Renaissance goth costumes, and the cooler punkier ones, like the Gothic Fairy, the Corpse Bride and Groom or the Gothic Mummy are fun, not only to wear, but to get made up for. Very light foundation and very dark, smokey eyes are part of the gothic make up charm. Add some black nail polish, a little gray blush and some dark blood red lipstick and you’ve achieved the gothic Halloween look.

Sexy Halloween Costume Ideas

Of course, if you happen to be an adult, sexy is always a hit. You can take one of those Marilyn outfits or get a Greek Goddess Venus or Aphrodite. There’s a really cute lady Cop uniform and some naughty, but nice Angel and Fairy costumes. For the men, there are the classics, the Vampire and the Roman Guard and of course, the Cop if you like a man in uniform.

Fantasy and Fairy Tale Halloween Costume Ideas

The Disney Princesses, Tinkerbell, Fairy and Mermaid costumes are always big crowd pleaser for the girls and the boys, well, they have Prince Caspian, a Knight, Peter Pan and the Dragon Slayer to choose from.

The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland open up lots of costume ideas too.

Easy Costumes For Halloween

Easy costumes are always big hits with all age groups. Togas, Scrubs or a White Lab Coat are very popular because of the ease of making them. You don’t have to buy or sew to turn yourself into a Toga wearing Greek, or a Doctor or Nurse costume. Just get a sheet or a large rectangular piece of material to make your own toga or borrow some scrubs and a stethoscope from someone in the medical field.

What ever Halloween costume ideas you decide on, whether its a toga or Marilyn, or The Gothic Fairy for the ladies, and a Transformer or Indiana Jones costume for the guys, enjoy the chance to dress up and go out and have some fun.

Halloween Decorations – Great Props Ideas

Halloween decorations are an essential part of any October 31st event. Exactly what type of Halloween props and decorations you buy will of course depend on whether you want a light and fun themed event, to one with a somewhat supernatural twist, to one that is outright horror, thrills and frights themed.

You can decide exactly what kind of atmosphere you would like. In this article we will just look broadly at a range of props that can fit into these categories. And of course you can then do further research to obtain the right props for your party.

Well, you might like to be a proper host of a haunted host and serve up food and drink in Halloween themed crockery. From napkins to shot glasses to snack bowls, the items will all be ghoulishly styled. To accessorise this further you may also like to get some Halloween themed tableware.

One of the best types of Halloween decorations if you really want to transform a room is to get some scene setter rolls. Made from poly-plastic, these will transform your room for the evening into somewhere like a graveyard, dungeon, haunted house, forest or some other place.

Wall Grabbers look great too. They are lightly backed with an adhesive that is similar to that used on a post-it. So long as the surface is smooth, these Halloween decorations can be stuck on and removed with ease. Place them strategically, like behind a door so that they take your guests completely by surprise.

Oct 31st would not be the same without a Halloween skeleton or skull. If a human is coming back from the dead, or rather his spirit, then it will usually possess that which is left behind after the flesh has long rotted away – his skeleton.

Bats, Spiders and Rats are of course also staple Halloween props. All creatures of the night, and of course bats are associated as the alternate forms of vampires in some folklore, although quite a few modern interpretations seem to be discarding this particular aspect of a vampire.

Spiders represent that classic human fear – apparently from the time of cavemen fearing big furry spiders might come out at them in a cave. Whatever, to this day spiders instil fear in many people, especially if they are furry. And of course rats. Not only known for vermin that spread disease but also in History used as a form of torture, rats are very much a part of the Halloween theme.

Hanging props. You can get a variety of hanging Halloween decorations. many of those ideas just mentioned will come in hanging variety as well as a number of other ghouls and scary creatures and objects. Limbs. These are very freaky, especially if strategically placed. Seeing a Halloween prop of a severed hand, or intestines or some other body part is grotesque and horrifying. Guaranteed a shriek if you get it right!

Animatronics. Getting something that moves or lights up or speaks is a great way to decorate your event. You can get life size and scaled versions of these props, as well as those that just consist of a body part like a hand, or head. There are many more ideas out these and these are just some of the great Halloween Decorations that are available for you to purchase for your event.

Halloween Party Props

Halloween party props are the most important accessories for Halloween decor. Probably no one can imagine a Halloween party without the usual monsters, skeletons and Jack – o- lantern pumpkin heads. All of these have entered Halloween folklore and if you want some of the best such Halloween props for your October 31 party, there are a few online stores that can help you. These websites have the advantage of offering a range of products on the same theme, so you can have a unitary concept behind your party.

One of the best products that can be found online is the tombstone with a skull and the “RIP” inscription engraved on it. The material used for production is polystyrene foam which makes it an affordable item and light, so shipping is cheap too and it is easy to install. Its drawback is that the polystyrene foam is very fragile, so you need to be careful when handling. It is 71 cm tall and its color is usually black.

If you want to take the cemetery scene a bit further, besides the tombstone you can also purchase a scene setter room roll. As the name may suggest, it is a roll of paper that you use to cover your walls. The one for the graveyard is 50 ft long (15.2 meters) 1.2 meters wide. It is decorated with grey stone brickwork and a dark graveyard behind iron curtails. It is made from plastic. You will of course want to measure your room and decide how much you need, as well as if you wish to cover part or all of your room.

And of course, what would Halloween be without the expected skulls or skeletons? For this item of your Halloween party props you can opt for a full size one. It can be put in any scene set, it does not take too much room and it looks pretty cool. Besides Halloween, it is a great gift for any horror movie fan. It is a realistic, high definition cardboard picture, self supporting, easy to transport thanks to the folding mechanism and its height is 188 cm.

We all know how important fun is for our health, especially in this stressful era. Halloween is one of the most beloved holidays for children and grownups alike. It is one of the most important secular holidays in the world, and some people make plans for it the whole year round. Whether you are among these people, or you just think about it a week before, we hope that our suggestion for Halloween party props will come in handy.
