New Year is a time to party all your troubles away and start the next year as you mean to go on! For many people that will New Yearmean putting on your nicest clothes and raising a glass of champagne, but here at Hollywood we like to do things a little differently!

Fancy dress is fast becoming a New Year staple and with each year we see wilder and weirder costumes emerge, but there will always be those few firm favourites. If you’re thinking of donning a funny costume to see in 2016 then check out some of our fancy dress ideas here.


1920’s is a popular theme all year round, but after the release of the Great Gatsby movie in 2013, it has been THE fancy dress theme for New Year parties. It’s elegant, extravagant and has all the glitz and glamour you could want. From frilly, fringed flapper dressed to dapper pinstriped suits, we have everything you could need to achieve you perfect Gatsby look. It’s not just costumes we have to offer either! We have feather boas, long gloves, cigarette holders and just about anything else you could imagine.


No longer are funny food and drink costumes reserved for festivals and stag nights! Towns and cities will be awash with men and women dressed as bottles of beer and tasty bacon slices. Not only are these costumes hilarious, but they are also great for group fancy dress. Have you considered getting your mates together and dress as a fried breakfast?


Save the world this New Year as your favourite heroes and villains! With the810669 Kylo Ren release of Star Wars ‘The Force Awakens’, we’re sure to see plenty of Darth Vader’s around this New Year. Why not try something new and go for one for our brand new Kylo Ren costumes or for the ladies we have sexy Stormtroopers!  The fun doesn’t end there though as we have a whole host of new and exciting superhero costumes including The Flash and brand new Batman and Robin costumes.

Whatever you choose to be this New Year, be safe, have fun and come to Hollywood for you costumes!

Happy New Year

Love Hollywood!
