Freddie For A Day – Freddie Mercury Fancy Dress Celebration

If on Wednesday the 5th of September you found yourself doing a few double takes of yellow jacket wearing, lycra and leather clad Freddy Mercury look-alikes you are not alone, and you are not going mad. The moustached masses were paying homage to the late Queen front man with the annual Freddy For A Day (FFAD) charity celebration.

The celebration which was set up in 1992 by the AIDs charity Mercury Phoenix Trust is now a worldwide celebration encouraging all of those willing to be involved to don some form of Freddy Mercury fancy dress and to help raise money and awareness of the charities work.

The celebration was the brainchild of Mercury Phoenix Trust volunteer Liz Swanton who donned a Freddy Mercury costume on the late singer’s birthday and attempted to raise money at her workplace in central London. Her efforts proved to be incredibly successful and she rose thousands of pounds for the charity. Her success created a huge buzz and thousands of supporters wanted to get involved in the event. The result was that Freddy For A Day was born and is now celebrated across the world on or around his birthday.

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.
