I went to a fantastic Halloween party this weekend, unprepared for the level of dressing up that actually happened at the party – the call to costume was taken very seriously!
Partly I blame this on the fact that usually when people in London say that a party is fancy dress, most of the blokes just don’t bother because they know most of the blokes just won’t bother.
But then the other reasons are:
a) The party was full of foreigners and Americans, who are always tend to get more enthusiastic and full on about any party occasion that the Brits*
b) I’m a lazy git
*except when british blokes get a chance to dress up in womens clothing – then you cant stop us.
