If you are after a sexy costume or you have a "dance" fancy dress theme party, here are a few fancy dress ideas: Moulin Rouge Costumes and Burlesque costumes!
The Red Windmill or Moulin Rouge is the most famous venue for the can-can dance and it therefore goes without saying that the Moulin Rouge costume obviously comes in the same style as the burlesque and can can costume.
Several films and books have been written about, or had the title Moulin Rouge but before the release of the 2001 film Moulin Rouge! which stared Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman most people who were looking for Burlesque costumes would have either typed in Burlesque costume or can can costume into Google, but because of the success of the film the Moulin Rouge costume has become a name for a fancy dress costume in it's own right. Almost like people who want a fizzy soft drink just say they want a Coke even though they are often after a different band. It is also since the release of the film, that the popularity of Moulin Rouge fancy dress has skyrocketed and it is now possible to find a huge variety these fancy dress costumes from fancy dress hire shops to fancy dress shops online.
The actual Moulin Rouge in Paris was built in 1889 and as the name suggests has a red windmill on the roof of the building and the can-can dance is still performed there to this day. Initially the Moulin Rouge was seen as a brothel, but as the dance has become more respected that reputation has been lost and it is now a famous tourist spot in Paris.
