Mencap Team Dodgeball Championship Costume Ideas

Bagpuss Costume

Wimbledon Park hosts a full day of dodgeball and fund raising as the Mencap organised team dodgeball championships return for another outing. Since the promise of fantastic prizes will be awarded to both the winning team and also the squad with the best outfits, we think that it's a great opportunity to wear some eye catching fancy dress and potentially win prizes for doing so, even if your team is rubbish and you don't win the competition! Here are our top ideas for group costumes that your team could wear.

The Clown

If performing the Haka isn't your first choice for intimidating your opponents, why not dress in a scary Clown Halloween Morphsuit that will give you the edge of a terrifying appearance?.

Outfit includes one-piece scary Lycra bodysuit.

Bagpuss

This one is a great costume choice for the ladies. Imagine your team all kitted out in pink with furry hats on! Our Bagpuss outfit will definitely make you stand out and be remembered!

Think you and your team are fast on your feet? Why not deck your team out in the official Sonic The Hedgehog fancy dress outfit ?

The women's Avatar costume is a perfect dodgeball uniform. It's slim fitting so it will reduce your chance of getting hit and it is also bright enough to help you stay aware of where your teams mates are!

Costume includes jumpsuit, apron and gauntlet.

Condom

Our condom outfit is definitely a little different. We'd love to see some photos if you opt for a prophylactic uniform.

Outfit includes one-piece pullover.

    "I once played dodgeball. Everyone kept calling me Duck shortly before I was hit with the ball for some reason. One game I took it in the groin, passed out and saw my uncle Keith float down from heaven and tell me he loves me. He isn't even dead! Dress me in the bath duck costume !"

    "Due to my proclivity for wearing tight orange shorts and my love for bland tasting chicken wings, I'd love to wear the Hooters outfit and enter the dodgeball tournament. Will Vince Vaugn be there? He was great in Titanic!"

    "I like to wear a mankini at any given opportunity. Gardening, shopping, pudding throwing, it's all good. My team's dodgeball uniform would be the yellow mankini . Hulk Hogan wore yellow, and he was a moustached world champion!"
