Transvestite Costumes

'Transvestite Tuesday' is a nickname that was coined by locals after the thousands of visitors who descend upon Lerwick to celebrate the fire festival and show off their outfits. Wearing a transvestite costume would appear to be a big part of the festivities and is a wonderful opportunity to take part in if you'd make a gorgeous woman. Below you can find a few of our favourite Up Helly Aa costume ideas.

The Up Helly Aa Procession

Up Helly Aa is a busy day full of things to do that start to be planned immediately following the culmination of the previous event. Planned well in advance by the Guizer Jarl and his Jarl Squad they look into every detail and work tirelessly to make sure that the Up Helly Aa festival is a rousing success each and every year.

After the procession, the squads visit local schools, sports facilities and hotels, where private parties are held. At each location, each squad performs its act, which may be a tribute or homage to a television show, film, topical event, or song and dance, always in a flamboyant costume.
