Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Costume

The first place I thought of when I saw Ailsa’s Costume Theme, was Disney World, as it seems that everyone who works there is in fancy dress.

There are many street performers in brightly coloured costumes,

and the parades are quite spectacular.

The last time we went, the Princes and  Princesses were firm favourites with our two youngest granddaughters.

A wonderful place to see hundreds of costumes, is  ‘Costume World’ in Pompano Beach, Florida. Here you can view an astounding exhibition of the finest costumes ever brought to the Broadway stage. I’m not sure what show these were from, but maybe some of you recognise them.

I do know that this is Dolly’s costume from the 1960’s musical, ‘Hello Dolly’.

These costumes were worn by America’s funniest lady Phyllis Diller, and the legendary comedian Jackie Gleason.

A bit more down to earth are the costumes we hired for the fancy dress party on board our Nile cruise. Do you think we look convincing enough, even though none of us managed to “Walk like an Egyptian” 😕
