Want to ensure that everyone is looking their best and gets into the mood? Make sure everyone is fully aware of the theme well in advance of the event so that they have time to prepare and come up with costume ideas. You will be amazed at how many people love to impress by going all out with their costume. Having time to order specialty items to complete their ensemble is always appreciated.
To help persuade those that may be less likely to adopt your theme, include or send out costume ideas with the invitation that are easy, with perhaps some DIY options so that last minute costumes are also possible.
Finally, supply your event with plenty of props so that guests can easily put on an afro or an oversized moustache at the venue. One final hint – be sure to outfit the staff at the event or ask them to comply with the costume theme.
