We look at some American fancy dress ideas

Since Halloween is only around the corner, it's not surprising that many people are now starting to think about what they're going to dress up as for their work or social functions. While many people tend to go for the old trusted ideas, we like to shake things up by trying something a little bit different every once in a while.

So if you haven't quite been able to decide what you're going to dress up as, then perhaps some of our suggestions for American style fancy dress might be helpful to you.

We have always been quite partial to the cheesy old 70s and 80s American cop shows, and since those kind of fancy dress costumes are easy to find and rather straightforward to get together yourself, we recommend them for those of you who are looking for something that isn't too time consuming.

If you head on over to allsortsfancydress.co.uk, you'll be able to buy a 70s Cop Kit including a toy gun, holster, aviator glasses and afro wig for just £16.50. All you'll need to add is a pair of jeans and a flamboyant shirt to complete the look.

Alternatively, you might want to consider escapade.co.uk who have a wide range of Hollywood costumes for you to consider. Since we're sticking with the American fancy dress idea, who better to go as than one of the States' favourite super heroes, Batman.

There are a wide range of Batman costumes available at Escapade, starting for as little as £35.99 and going up to as much as £49.99, so take a look and see which one takes your fancy.
