We check out some of the fancy dress shops in the Lancashire area

Everyone loves a good fancy dress party, there's just something about dressing up like your favourite character from TV, the movies, sports or politics for a night of silliness with your friends. While many people enjoy the challenge of making their own costumes, many of us lack the necessary skills with a needle and thread to do much more than sew on buttons - and even that's quite a big ask for some!

Fortunately there are alternatives, with a number of fancy dress shops in the Lancashire area area available both online and in the area for checking out the latest costumes in person.

The first one we're going to look at is Fancy That, who claim to be the one stop fancy dress shop. They are based at 358 Chorley Old Road, Bolton, BL1 6AG, with their website located at www.fancythatfancydress.co.uk. Alternatively you can contact them by phone at 01204 849 717 during regular business hours Monday to Saturday.

Fancy That have a huge selection of costumes available for a wide range of occasions and themes, so whether it's a hen or stag party, a 70's themed costume party or simply a novelty wig or t-shirt you're looking for, they should have you covered.

Pink Tree Parties can be found at 78 Poulton Street, Kirkham, Preston, Lancashire PR4 24H, or online at www.pinktreeparties.co.uk and offer everything you need for your parties, from fancy dress and fancy dress accessories to balloons, venue decoration, wedding planning and party supplies.

Finally, Maskerade, who are located at 50 Long Street, Middleton, Manchester M24 6UQ or at www.maskeradeuk.com have a more specialist approach to their costumes, focussing primarily on different time periods from the 20s right through to the 80s, while also including medieval Victorian, wild west and super hero costumes, perfect for themed parties.

These are just a few of the fancy dress shops in the Lancashire area, but they certainly offer among the best ranges of costumes available for both rent and purchase, so be sure to check them out.
