How to Prepare for a Comic-Inspired Stag Do
One of the most difficult things about preparing a stag do is deciding what theme to go with. There are so many great options out there that there’s a good chance you’re going to be spending half your time trying to boil these options down so you can come up with one that works for you and your group of mates (especially taking into account the seasons).
When you eventually do decide on your theme, if you’ve decided on a comic-inspired stag do you’ll want to consider the following points both when preparing for your big night and when out on the night itself. Remember, there’s a good chance you won’t be able be able to function as well as usual after a few drinks (you know what we mean), so memorise these points now so they’ll be in the front of your mind when you need to apply them.
Search for Comic Characters Online
Though you may know exactly what comic character you want to dress up as, some of your mates may not have as much experience in this area and will therefore need a helping hand to come up with ideas. The best way to do this is by searching for comic characters online, as it won’t be long until at least one of these characters strikes a chord with each of your mates, helping them to decide on who they’re going to dress up as during the stag do.
Keep in mind that when you choose more well-known characters you’ll find it much easier to find the costume you need than when you choose an obscure comic character. In reality you’re likely to be able to find any costume if you search for long enough, but often time is of the essence when organising a stag do.
Purchase Your Costumes
You’ll want to purchase all of your costumes at the same time so you know they’ll all arrive together (if they’re in stock) and to even allow you to get a potential discount on your bulk order. Head on over to a fancy dress store online, such as www.doodysfancydress.co.uk, and have a search around to see if you can find the costume you’re after. If you can’t you may want to change your comic character to save time, though there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find it.
When purchasing your costumes it’s also a good idea to buy any accessories or face paints you’ll need to add the finishing touches to your costumes, as we’ll see below.
Get Your Mates to Paint Your Face
Now, though this can be hilarious to do after you’ve already had a couple of drinks, in order to ensure both you and your mates put the correct face paint onto each other’s face (rather than other items that we wouldn’t dare mention here…) it’s recommended that you paint each other’s faces when sober.
If you’ve never used face pants before you may want to look up a few techniques online to make sure you do a relatively good job. Your face paints will be the icing on the cake during your stag do, so make sure you all put the effort in to make sure you all look good.
Unleash Yourselves to the World…
Whether you’re going on a bar crawl, heading to a specific venue, or even going paintballing all together, this is the moment in which you’ll unleash yourselves to the world dressed as your comic alter-egos!
Though you’ll want to enjoy yourself as much as possible during your stag do, just remember that even though you’re dressed as comic characters the laws of the land still apply to you, and you must therefore act in a respectable manner at all times. That aside, go out there and have fun!
In conclusion, one of the most difficult things about preparing a stag do is deciding what theme to go with. When you eventually do decide on your theme, if you’ve decided on a comic-inspired stag do you’ll want to consider the above points both when preparing for your big night and when out on the night itself.
