Should you be considering having a themed party and you want something which is going to be great fun for everyone invited consider a 70s fancy dress?

Sometimes when folks organise a themed party it can really be a bit limiting in regards to selecting an outfit, but with a 70s fancy dress party this is certainly not going to be a problem. Whenever you sit and think back to the 1970s (if you are old enough to remember them...) then it won't be long before you realise just how many different varieties of clothing there are to select from. The seventies went through a number of different phases, from hippies decked out in kaftans and loon pants to the later days of gold medallions and the disco look that was immortalised by the likes of The Bee Gees. The 10 years actually went through quite a lot of changes once that it came to an end. Your choices in 70s fancy dress costumes is truly immense.

There are some specific things that epitomise the decade and, when choosing your outfit, are fairly crucial. Think of things that were firm favourites with people such as 'bell-bottoms', over-sized sunglasses and pork chop sideburns. Platform shoes are another very popular choice for 70s fancy dress as are the 'glam rock' outfits which were worn by the likes of Slade, The Sweet, Mud and David Bowie (when he was in his Ziggy Stardust phase). There are also some great wigs on the market to help you to complete your look. Make sure that you remember loud shirts with flared collars. You can get some really good ideas for costumes just by watching some old clips of singers or television programmes from the time. Another truly iconic outfit that is always a popular choice when it comes to 70s fancy dress is the Elvis Presley studded white cat suit. Don't be surprised if more than one of your guests arrives wearing it...

Depending on simply how much work you need to put in there are some traditionally 'retro' activities that you can incorporate into your 70s fancy dress party. You could organise some appropriate activities such as 'Twister' and 'Ker-Plunk' along with such things as 'Space Hopper' racing. A quick look through the internet will quickly remind you of a number of other 70s games, toys and pass-times you could make use of for your celebration.
