Everyone looks good in uniform, and when it comes to dressing up, you can forget the years of training for real-life professions! Become a uniformed professional of your choice and get in character with our cool collection of uniform fancy-dress costume ideas. Doctor or nurse? Cop or robber? You decide!
“WOOP WOOP, IT’S THE SOUND OF THE POLICE!”
Suit up in blue and accessorise with a truncheon and handcuffs to show everyone who’s boss! Police officer costumes demand authority at the party, and you’ll be arresting naughty girls and boys on the spot. Will you go for a stiff-upper-lip British constable appearance or the notorious look of an American mid-west cop? Other police outfit choices include SWAT, FBI and secret agents for when the stakes are higher and need some serious firepower!
Want to unleash your wild side and stay on the other side of the law? Convicts and prisoners are the way to go! Jumpsuits are cheap and easy to wear, and there’ll be no mistake as to who you are. Choose a bright orange convict costume to portray an inmate from the Orange Is the New Black TV series or go for the traditional black and white stripes look. Accessorise with handcuffs and badass temporary tattoos, and you’ll strike fear into anyone you bump into!
“IT’S GETTING HOT IN HERE!”
Everyone loves a man or woman in uniform and dressing as a firefighter is a costume idea that’s sure to get someone a little hot under the collar. Firefighter costumes are available for men and women, and there are plenty to choose from! Complete the look by applying smudges of black make-up onto your cheeks and chest to give the impression you’ve been dashing through a real fire.
If you’re a big fan of TV programmes such as New Amsterdam, Casualty, E.R and Grey’s Anatomy then doctors, nurses and surgeons of the emergency room will be right up your street. Suit up in scrubs, a doctor’s coat or blue overalls, and accessorise with a stethoscope to complete the look. Your friends may not trust you to perform surgery on them, but at least you’ll look good!
AT EASE SOLDIER!
When it comes to fancy-dress uniforms, nothing quite beats a bold military outfit. It commands respect, and there are so many styles to choose from. It’s also a very budget-friendly costume idea for groups on a stag or hen party. The green jungle camouflage look of a soldier is the most popular option – simply wear camo trousers and a vest and accessorise with dog tags, bullets, a fake gun and face paint. Other options include WW2 military dress, aviation pilots, navy sailors and special forces commando's!
If you want to look alluring and sexy at the party, not many outfits are as hot as a French maid. This traditional Parisian uniform is made up of a short frilly black dress with a white apron, garter and feather duster. Practice your best French accent and prepare to turn heads in your path. It’s a fun uniform dress-up idea that many people won’t think of!
Take to the skies dressed as a glamorous posse of cabin crew girls for a hen party or put on your aviator shades and embrace the fashion of a commercial airline pilot. Order the same costumes as your friends and make up a fake airline name – you’ll have a great time! Just serve something a little tastier than those awful airline meals.
“U.G.L.Y, YOU AIN’T GOT NO ALIBI”
Shake those pom-poms, jump up and down and go wild! American cheerleader uniforms will transform you into a bundle of fun. Get your girlfriends involved and create your own chants to sing on a night out!
Ahoy there matey! Put on your traditional white sailor’s outfit and stand at attention for the admiral! From the days of pin-up sailors in the ‘20s and ‘30s to modern-day navy sailors, these uniforms will always be an instantly recognisable look. Whether you’re jetting off on holiday to a yacht party or hosting your own sea-faring event at home, dress up in full sea-man or women attire and set sail.
“PRAISE THE LORD!”
Priests, nuns and the Pope aren’t the first things you think of when it comes to uniform fancy dress. However, they’re an out-of-the-box option that’ll get a few laughs from everyone at the party, especially if you’re dressing up as a whole clergy of religious friends. Choose from a vicar, Sister Act movie-style nun, or a wise Buddhist monk. God himself will be impressed at this uniform costume idea!
Attending a high school reunion, ‘90s disco or a school-themed night out?
