Leg Avenue Furry Rainbow Leg Warmers: Nicki Minaj is hot right now and we just love waiting to see what eccentric outfit she is going to turn up in next. Leopard print, rainbow shades, stand out wigs and of course the colour pink seem to be the singing star’s preferred choices and we were so excited that Minaj was spotted in our Leg Avenue Furry Rainbow Leg Warmers. Teamed with a cuddly toy montage style dress and curly pink wig the singer did not disappoint in yet another unique ensemble. It shouldn’t be too difficult to put together yourself right……? We have the rainbow leg warmers and the pink wig sorted so all you need is a mini puff dress, a load of old teddy bears, needle and thread and some half decent sewing skills and voila – your own Nicki Minaj fancy dress costume.

Perez Hilton (you know that dude who blogs and tweets about celebs all day long and is bff with Dita Von Teese and Gaga) celebrated his errm,(cough, cough) 34th (appaz) Birthday this week. In true Perez fashion the most famous blogger opted for a fancy dress theme for his high-profile shindig and went for the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. A pretty good idea in our opinion as it meant that attendees did not have to go the whole hog with a full fancy dress costume and could be as imaginative as they wished with the head-gear.
For inspiration for your own Mad Hatters Tea Party fancy dress theme look to the celebs who rocked some serious hats and headwear to Hilton’s bash.
Jenna Jameson went for a ring leader look in a classic black top hat and a rather strange skeleton print leotard. Reality princess Kim Kardashian rocked a sophisticated fascinator.
The Vampire Diaries’ Kat Graham went for the traditional oversized Mad Hatter Top Hat while burlesque siren Dita Von Teese sported a distinctive large red bow with some sparkly silver devil horns.
Disney’s Bella Thorne looked super cute in a mini clip on Mad Hatter style hat with pink satin bow and gets our vote for best hat of the night.
For your own Mad Hatter Tea Party fancy dress theme ask guests to come in creative hats and headwear and give out prizes for the best looking and most original. Inexpensive plus you and your guests will have great fun choosing a great hat. A few of our stand out fancy dress hats for some more inspiration below;

Leg Avenue Lurex Leggings: Leggings seem to be our best friend these days. So adaptable for an array of outfits – mini dresses, shorts, skirts and with the ever more unpredictable British weather they have come to our rescue on more than one occasion. How many times have we planned to wear our favourite little black dress or coolest pair of cut off shorts when the temperature suddenly drops significantly or the heavens open up. Ah, thank you Lord for the creation of the leggings! Even more excited were we when we discovered the glittery and glamorous variety and started to plan our outfits around them. Check out the leggings on our website that have been spotted on Danielle Lloyd and more recently Katie Price at the 2012 ‘Hunger Games’ premiere.

Yep, we were a bit worried when this part of the Leg Avenue 2012 fancy dress costume collection was announced. Thanks to that evil so-and-so ‘Pennywise’ (you know, that bloody scary clown in Stephen King’s horror film ‘It’) we have been pretty weirded out by clowns since, well, forever. Then we saw the pictures from the new collection and were very pleasantly surprised and realised how very pretty and even fashionable our circus friends can be. Fantastic as a theme for any extravagant party and ideal for Halloween 2012, especially for those of us who are fans of face paints and avant-garde make up. Here is a cheeky sneak peek from the Leg Avenue 2012 Clown fancy dress costume range (and we promise that none of them will ask if you want a balloon)

Katy Perry is a global superstar thanks to her catchy tunes, compelling attitude and of course her eccentric and quirky dress sense. A popular icon to dress up as for hen nights, birthdays and Halloween and sure to be the talking point of any party. The pop star has had so many different looks, the choice is extensive – here are a few ideas for some Katy Perry fancy dress costumes;
The ‘California Gurls’ music video is an unforgettable hit by Miss Perry and is not too difficult to put together yourself. All you need is a pair of blue denin shorts that can be customised with some glitter or rhinestones and a strapless bra or bikini top that should, again, be personalised with some colourful faux gem stones. Wack out the bostik glue, a pencil with some blu tack attached to the end and a saucer or small plate. Spread your stones or glitter (available to buy from any fabric or craft shop) on to the saucer and use the blu tack on the pencil to pick up the stones and dab on the glue to the flat sides. Then, with the stones still attached to the blu tack, carefully place each gem onto the shorts in whatever pattern you like. Repeat this process with the bra / bikini top. Add the all important blue Katy Perry wig, some pumps and you are good to go!
The ‘Last Friday Night’ music video is one of Katy Perry’s most recent hits, in which she yet again dons a completely different look from any other we have seen from her. Sure to be instantly recognised by all other partygoers her quirky look makes a great choice for a Katy Perry fancy dress costume. All you need is a neon pink top, clashing neon green bodycon skirt, lots of multicoloured bangles, topped off with the Katy Perry Last Friday Night Wig. To complete the look, and make it as authentic looking as possible, copy the star’s strange shoe choice and don a different coloured heel on each foot.
For a more classic Katy Perry fancy dress costume you can easily copy one of her most recent looks by opting for her favoured striped fishnet mini dress, matching skirt and some cool LA shades.

Leg Avenue Double Striped Knee Highs: A big trend for a couple of seasons now and sported by many a celeb are the sports and athletic style fashion socks. Perfect for the Spring/Summer 2012 luxe sports trend. Rock them out with a pair of denim shorts or mini skirt, stylish converse high tops and vest top.
Pixie knows that fashion socks are BIG right now. Go über cool and team with flats or dress a pair of fashion socks up with some risqué heels.
Fergie rocks the luxe sport look with a touch of bling while Gisele makes wearing socks in bed suddenly fashionable.
The sporty skater look went mainstream this year, pioneered by the original skater girl, Avril Lavigne.

As predicted in our Top 10 Fancy Dress Costume Ideas 2012 page, the Monster theme is going to be a ‘roaring’ success (see what we did there) for Halloween 2012. Sod the vampires, let’s face it, Twilight’s Breaking Dawn Part 1 was rather disappointing, leaving us with little hope that the conclusion will be any better. R-Patz has moved on to other, just as moody, roles and we have all kinda given up hope of ever being bitten. Sexy witch fancy dress costumes are soooo over and zombies are just a bit too gory and bloody for our liking. Cue the Monster look! Yep, monsters get sexy this year and we will be stocking sexy fancy dress costumes in the form of animated monsters. The 2012 Leg Avenue Fancy Dress Collection feature these little gems and you lucky people get to see a cheeky sneak peek. Think ‘Monsters Inc’, rather than hairy werewolves or Yetis, in bold and bright Disney Pixar style colours with matching furry boots. Waaahoo – hurry up October!!

The Bellatrix Lestrange Wig: We love to hate the queen of the death eaters and Voldemort’s right hand woman (we so think they should have got together), so much that the Bellatrix costume has become a firm favourite all year round. An iconic villain, evil witch, book/film character and its’ so easy to do – wear lots of black, carry a wand, apply deathly white make up and black ringed eyes. Bellatrix’s hair is as wild and crazy as the lady herself so it’s important to accessorize your costume with the perfect Bellatrix Lestrange wig. Our range of costume and celebrity wigs are made from 100% Japanese kanekalon fibre, the most exquisite material on the market, making the hair feel and flow like real human hair – but at a snip of the price. The fabulous Belltarix Lestrange wig had us clapping just as hard as when Molly Weasley finally rid the World of the demented witch. With no pins, tape or styling required, it’s good to go.
