Irish and St. Patrick's Day Fancy Dress Costumes

Irish National Flag

While watching all the floats at a local Saint Patrick's Day parade on March 17th - the Irish really know how to have a good time, buy the way - it was clear that for an Irish-themed event most people will choose to dress in green and white with a splash of orange to represent the national flag colours - the orange was usually in the form of a wig or beard.

Talking of flags, there are lots of them available at Amazon, and they come in all shapes and sizes. If you're decorating a float, garden or even a room, a large flag or several small-sized flags are essential.

A flag with a base is ideal for the centrepiece on a table, and hand flags are great for handing out to everyone. Bunting and balloons will really help to add zest to just about any Irish-themed event.

These decorations are specifically for St. Patrick's Day...

However, Amazon has a huge range of accessories available and it would be pretty pointless me duplicating the full list, so I recommend this link;

Leprechaun Costumes

One of the most popular outfits worn at Irish events is one that represents a leprechaun. In Irish folklore, this is a mischievous fairy creature who spends his spare time making shoes and counting gold coins he found in a pot at the end of a rainbow!

This costume is highly-rated by customers and is nicely priced at £20.86 including free delivery - this is subject to change, of course. It comes in a display bag and includes a jumpsuit, jacket, tall hat and ginger beard.

Ladies Leprechaun Costume
Leprechaun Ladies Costume
This is the best-rated outfit for women and includes a green dress with black lace hem, cape with bow-tie and the hat. Please note that the white stockings are not included. This is a "one size fits all" costume, and if you're size 10 or under then it is likely be a little on the large size for you. However, there are other outfits available...

Irish Fancy Dress Hats and Head Wear

If you're planning on going to an irish event as a group, then these first two hats might be of interest. The Irish bowler hat comes in a pack of 12 and the clover hat with beard comes in a pack of 6. If you're only buying for yourself then the following head wear may be more of interest...
