Want to look like you’ve just totally caught the sweetest tube and been riding some cranking waves? Or would you like to know what that actually means? Well you can get that rad surfer drop out vibe just like Sean Penn as Spicoli in Fast Times in Ridgemont High with the perfect windswept and sea-salt knackered hair with this surfer wig.

It’ll make you look like you loll about on the beach all day, smoking doobies and dreaming of the perfect point break. Like, heavy man.

Some people stand in the darkness, afraid to look into the light. Some people get their chests surgically enhanced for running r-e-a-l-l-y s-l-o-w-l-y on tv credits so said chests bounce in an alluring manner at an inappropriate time of the tv day for such busty behaviour. Basically, we’re saying if you want to get that Pammy Anderson lifeguard vibe, then you need this.

Chest is down to you.

So much life on the beach and none more so in the ocean itself. It’s a whole other world you know. Why not be the prize draw of the seafood platter and come as a lobster? It’s a well spendy bit of protein so everyone will think you’re a bit swanky and the B-52s even wrote a song about one. Ok it was a Rock Lobster but that just sounds even better. Indie mollusc doesn’t have the same vibe does it? Be the king of the clawed aquatic dinners in this get up.

Do you dream of being a Honolulu Honey, all long flowing locks, grass skirts and a carefree attitude to sleeping around? Yeah, us too. Just like Baby’s sister in Dirty Dancing, you can channel your inner Lisa Houseman with this splendid lei ensemble for that seashell Princess vibe.

Not sure if that’s a real thing though, the seashell Princess. Maybe there is a Princess seashell Barbie. That doesn’t seem unlikely does it? You can be that. Or Honolulu Barbie.

Whatevs.

What could really eff up our beach party is if a giant aquatic predator swam close to the shore and ate someone. That wouldn’t be very good. But it would certainly be dramatic. So, if you’re in the mood for severing fake arms and generally making women scream, then why not come as a shark to the party? This realistic furry costume is just the ticket. They’ll be screaming in terror at your cuddly fins and teeth. Or wanting to stroke you. That could work to your advantage if your single. Just please don’t actually bite / kill anyone. We’re not insured for maiming or murder.

Thanks.

Pop goes Hawaii!

This Saturday night July 31st, we’re shoving a load of leis round our neck and hula-ing on down to KOKO for our last bash of the summer.

Hawaii is our theme and Island of choice for this beach party blowout. Along with the tropical paradise, shark attacks and Barack Obama being born there, what pop starts have been raised on its fair sands? Ad whom of these can inspire our garb for the night? Let’s take a look and see.

Popstars from Hawaii are few and far between and those we do have aren’t really very good. Take for example 80s (brief) heartthrob Glenn Medeiros. He topped the charts in 1987 and promptly never returned despite having released NINE albums. Who knew? He may have been sensitive and hunky, but God he was a drip.

Best off taking your lead from Elvis then, who made three films in Hawaii as well as a live concert that was beamed around the globe. Sure the jumpsuit isn’t the most obvious or indeed practical of beach wear, but then who wants to look like everyone else?

For the girls, at least we can rely on Bette Midler, a statement that is applicable to most of life’s situations and none more so than here. Despite hailing from Hawaii, she’s singing about Oklahoma here, but she’s dressed up like Venus and emerging from a giant shell, ergo no argument – it’s the best Bette:

Or how about a muppet take on Hawaii? Gives us an interesting take on that sunshine state; Animal is a resident! They have penguins! The pigs who live there wear grass skirts! THIS IS BRILLIANT. We’re booking a ticket right now as this is the greatest travel advert EVER:

Let me take you on an Escapade

Next Saturday July 31st it’s our last beach party of the summer at KOKO and we’ve come over all tropical as we don our grass skirts and flowers from our mum’s garden and say ALOHA HAWAII.

It’s terribly exciting. Have you got a ticket yet? Get one here quick! What’s even more exciting than this, if that’s indeed possible, is that we have teamed up with Escapade fancy dress in Camden to bring you Guilty Pleasures people a discount on your costume and accessories so you get all done out nice for the party and save yourself a few quid! Oh we are good to you here at GP towers.

You can either buy online or visit their shop at 45-46 Chalk Farm Road, London, NW1 8AJ and to claim your 10% discount quote Aloha at the checkout and savings will be made.

There’s a whole WORLD of wonder to be found in the shop, so here’s a few tasters for you:


Normal bras are SO boring aren’t they girls? Get yourself one of these instead. Might not work well under a t-shirt, but who needs one of those at the beach?


You could go down to the river bed and harvest the reeds, or you could make your life a lot easier and buy this grass skirt instead. No threat of hay fever either. Win all round.

There is always room for these


Hey men – want to look like this? You can! Flaunt your physique and get the manly hula vibe to make the girls swoon


Ooh this would look lovely on you. Really brings out your eyes

Don’t be afraid of standing out so grab yourself a fruity suit

Or come over all crabby

Or suffer (pretend) death by (pretend) shark

All this and many more marvels to be found at escapade.co.uk!
