    hi vaishanve,

    this is shahnaz from dubai. i too have a 4 1/2 old son going to school. i know spiderman and superman are all common in fancy dress. i still remember that boy from my niece class. some years back when i had visited my niece school fancy dress comp.in bombay one boy was dressed up like a mobile supermarket. he was dressed in shirt and pant made of newspaper and many small plastic bags were staped on his dress . each small bag had pulses/cereals/spices/ and many other things available in the supermarket. it was really unique and beleive me, he had won 1st prize. u may give a try, if you wish.

    Hi Vaishnave,


    You can contact a tailor and get a penguin or bee or rabbit costume stitched. and ask your son to do some actions . It would look cute . Try to download some costumes from the internet and give it to the tailor . He'll get an idea . Good luck to you and your kid.

    Hi vaishnave,

    I have a 3 year old son.I have dressed him up in one costume or the other for each of his bday parties-just for a change and for some pics :)

    Some ideas for the fancy dress are -

    1.As an Arab - with the thobe and ghutra etc-very easily available in any of the stores - as many small boys also wear it here

    2.As cartoon characters -like bugs bunny,mickey mouse etc

    3.As animals - elephant,lion etc-as kids generally love animals and cartoons they may be more than willing to dress up as one :)

    4.As gods like Krishna,Shiv etc-you may have to look around quite a bit in the souks and shops that sell nick nacks to get this costume ready...maybe even get some tailor to stitch the pieces of the costume

    5.As people at work like doctor,or a chef etc

    Costume shops :
    1.Party Kingdom -located near jaidah flyover.But you must be willing to shell out anything in the range of 150-300 QR for the costume.I felt the costumes were worth the price because they looked real and plus all my shopping could be finished in one go ;)

    2.Giant Store at Hyatt plaza generally stocks some nice animal costumes-and i think are priced much lower than party kingdom

    3.Carrefour-though ive not seen it everytime I go.I think it depends on their stock

    4.Toys R Us - Again a lil overpriced and dependent on stocks

    5.Party Mania - at Royal plaza,Al sadd-has cotumes spanning different price ranges.And their stocks are pretty good

    I hope that helps.Feel free to ask me if you need to know anything more...
