#PaintTheToon Purple Fancy Dress Ideas

Find out what you could do for #PaintTheToon Purple!

With #PaintTheToon Purple, you may be thinking on what you could do.

The easiest way to contribute is to dress in purple, put on a purple wig or a purple shirt and raise money for Percy Hedley. However, if you want to push the boat out a little, fancy dress may be something you want to consider.

See below for a list of potential fancy dress ideas:

Dress up as a celebrity

Various celebrities have famously dressed in purple. Or you could take inspiration from a celebrity and dress similarly.

The possibilities include:

  1. Prince – perhaps the most famous and you can rock out to Purple Rain whilst wearing purple.
  2. Madonna – channel 80s vibes with a purple tutu and armbands. Want to go full on 80s? Bring out the purple shell suit, sweatbands or inflatable purple boombox and guitar, and dance the night away.
  3. Channel Taylor Swift by dressing up in a ‘Lavender Haze’ – If there are any Swifties out there you could even do a Taylor Swift Purple Party by dressing up in different outfits to represent the various Era’s (your purple could be a purple accessory or a purple drink).
  4. Have a Purple Carpet Night – red carpets are out, purple carpets are in, celebrate in style with purple frocks and suits and feel like a celebrity on the runway.

Dress up as a Purple Character

Immerse yourself in the full fancy dress experience by dressing up as a character. For this you can either buy your costume outright from party stores or DIY it. You could even host a competition for the best fancy dress outfit.

Possibilities include:

  1. Thanos (Marvel Comics) 
  2. Hawkeye (Marvel Comics)
  3. Ursula (the Little Mermaid) 
  4. Cheshire Cat (Alice in Wonderland) 
  5. Tinky Winky (Teletubbies) 
  6. Barney the Dinosaur (Barney and Friends) 
  7. The Joker (The Batman Animated Series) 
  8. Yzma (The Emperors New Groove) 
  9. A Purple Minion (Despicable Me)
  10. A Purple Among Us Crewmember (Among Us Video Game)
  11. Willy Wonka (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory)

Just have fun with it!

Fancy dress may be one of the easiest ways to contribute to #PaintTheToon Purple but you could also put on a purple cake sale or a purple coffee morning. Get your pets involved by hosting a Purple Dog Walk by using purple neckerchiefs, collars and leads. The possibilities are endless.

Whatever you decide to do, together we’ll Paint The Toon Purple.
