Christmas fancy dress costumes do not all have to be about dressing up in Santa costumes, elf costumes or even reindeer costumes. Here are a few of my alternative fancy dress ideas for Christmas this year:
Christmas tree costume
What could say more about Christmas than the Christmas tree, but did you know that custom of erecting a Christmas tree or Yule tree comes from Germany and goes right back to the 16th century! I have seen Christmas tree costumes for sale on the web and think that they are excellent.
Christmas Snowman Costume
Ok, so I know that here in the UK it hardly ever snows on Christmas, but even so the snowman is one of the iconic symbols of Christmas, just take a look at the Christmas cards for sale in a book shop and see how many feature a snowman on the cover. There are Snowman costumes available and will make excellent fancy dress costumes for Christmas.
Christmas turkey costume
Ok, so far we have the Christmas tree, a snow man, but what about the Christmas feast? There are a couple of ideas here, what about dressing up in a Turkey costume or even a Christmas pudding, I have seen both available to buy on the web.
Other stange / different Christmas costume ideas could include a Penguin costume, Robin costume or if you want to be nasty this Christmas, how about a Grinch Costume?
