Rugby Sevens goes Galactic for final showdown in London


Marriott London Rugby Sevens returns to Twickenham this year on 16 and 17th May 2015. Teams finishing in the top four of the Sevens World Series will secure Olympic qualification for the first ever Olympic Sevens tournament in Rio 2016 so there is a lot to play for on the pitch. Off the pitch, Saturday tickets have almost sold out so the fancy dress competition will be fierce! The theme this year is galactic/ out of this world so prepare to travel into space, the Milky Way and galaxies far away.
Star Wars is one of the best known Space film so I’m expecting to see a few Luke Skywalker's trying to save the day/ universe, some evil Darf Varders and a few girls opting to dress as Princess Leia. Check out this Darf Vader costume at Angels Fancy Dress (£35) complete with black cloak, chest piece, mask and famous 'lightsaber'. We also like the Princess Leia outfit with white dress with thigh high splits, metallic belt and brunette wig also £35 from Angels.

Astronaut's are another great option and there are loads available. Boys there are some amazing Buzz Lightyear outfits available from Escapade at £42. Costume includes white jumpsuit with astronaut chest piece and arm cuffs. Girls check out the sexy Fever Space Cadet outfit, £32 from joke.co.uk, including sexy silver mini dress, with purple belt, silver sleevelets and boot covers. Add a bright, neon coloured wig to look space-tastic!

If you don’t want to go as a specific character I see Galactic as ‘all things silver’ including 1960’s style silver miniskirts/ dresses with bright futuristic leggings, silver onsies with oversized foam shoulders and sexy silver cat suits. Morphsuits do a fun range of 'mechanical' second skins starting at £35 on morphsuits.co.uk.

We are going as Virgil from the Thunderbirds in blue jumpsuits complete with yellow sash and hat. We will of course be practicing our robotic moves so definitely look out for us and join in!! See you there....
