As we prepare to say goodbye to 2012, we thought this little post would be useful for those of you planning to welcome 2013 in fancy dress.

The tradition in Woolacombe is to see out New Year's Eve through one large tribute to create dressing. If you're lucky enough to be there you'll find people in costume partying everywhere from The Red Barn to Captain Jacks, enjoying fantastic sets from local DJs as they go. There's no specific venue that advertises fancy dress, so there's no set theme. It just seems to be 'the done thing'.

 

We're not experts ourselves but we have found that doing the zombie thing is one of the more fun ways for a couple or group to stick to a theme and yet remain individual. We trawled the web and one of the best guides we could find is on Youtube. We love this one because it covers the makeup, clothing, and even stretches to a couple of tips on the noises you'll need to learn!

Whatever you happen to be doing, be sure to enjoy it responsibly and have a great 2013!
