The Eurovision Song Contest is almost here and throwing a Eurovision fancy dress party is one of the best ways to celebrate the most bizarre night of the year with true hilarity!
Today we’re bringing you some brilliant costume ideas that are guaranteed to get you in true Eurovision spirit (and maybe even feeling a little nostalgic). From absolute Eurovision legends to some more tongue in cheek costumes, we’ve got it all covered and ready for a funny Eurovision night on Saturday 14th May! Here it goes…
The best fancy dress ideas for Eurovision 2016
This year’s Eurovision Song Contest is taking place in Sweden and Abba are Eurovision legends (nay, royalty!) so a Eurovision party wouldn’t be complete without dressing up as Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha and Anni-Frid in their 70s hayday. Abba makes a brilliant group costume so team up with a couple of friends and you’ll have yourself a full Swedish pop group! Time to crack out the karaoke too?
Best of British
Show your support for this year’s UK entry with some union jack fancy dress. Flags will be everywhere on Eurovision night so you’ll fit right in with a union jack morphsuit or Spice Girls-style Geri dress.
And if you’re supporting a different country, you’ll find loads of fancy dress accessories for different European countries over here in our international party shop.
No, you didn’t read that wrong. Last year was Eurovision’s 60th anniversary and the first time a country outside of Europe has ever been invited to take part in the contest. There’sa huge Eurovision fan base down under and since Australia did so well last year, they’ve been invited back for Eurovision 2016!
If they win, the contest won’t be held in Australia – they’ll get to choose which country they’d like to host it next. So for the second time in Eurovision history, get your cork hats and Aussie fancy dress at the ready and take a look at our Australian fancy dress ideas if you’re going to be supporting the Aussies!
Love them or hate them, Jedward and Eurovision are a match made in heaven! The Irish duo came 8th in 2011 and their crazy hairstyle makes them instantly recognisable as a Eurovision fancy dress costume!
We’ll admit that this is a tenuous link but you can’t deny that a blue morphsuit would be a brilliantly simple fancy dress idea for this year’s Eurovision.
Blue entered the song contest in 2011 with the song ‘I Can’ and came an impressive 5th! Grab three of your friends to dress up with you and you’ve got yourself a noughties’ boy band (well, almost!)
