One Direction Wear Animal Fancy Dress Costumes as Disguises

The hottest boy band on the planet will be headlining the Party in the Park festival in Leeds on the 22nd of July and the festivals organisers are so paranoid that boys will be mobbed by their fanatic fans that they have decided to dress them up “subtly” in animal fancy dress costumes to disguise them.

The plan consists of the boys arriving to the festival in separate cars, as opposed to a potentially riot inducing tour bus or limo, each one of the boys will be decked out in an animal costume as they aim to fly under the radar of festival attendees.

Pandas Invade Trafalgar Square

The world is celebrating its first ever Panda Awareness Week as the population of the lovable bears has dropped down to a mere 1,600 left in the wild. The panda is now the most endangered species in the world, but if you were in Trafalgar Square yesterday you would be forgiven for thinking that this might not be completely accurate.

Over 100 performers gathered in Trafalgar Square dressed in Panda fancy dress costumes and danced a specially choreographed routine to spread awareness of a species that is slowly becoming extinct due to habitat loss. The flash mob with a cause mentality has helped to raise awareness of the species worldwide.

The Olympic Torch Relay Route Through Camden

On the 26th of July the Olympic Torch will begin the penultimate day of its journey across our fair Isles and where better to start than in our very own Camden. On Thursday morning, at a slightly painfully early 6:45 am, the Torch’s route will take in the fine sight of the Escapade fancy dress store in London.

The Torch begins its journey through Camden just up Chalk Farm Road at our neighbours the Roundhouse and if the rumours are true Rugby World Cup winning coach Sir Clive Woodward will be the man who begins the journey accompanied by a mass choir who will sing him on his way.
