Dress-Up Saturday 2016: voting now open!

We love Dress-Up Saturday, and each year the themes are suggested and chosen by YOU! Previous year’s have seen an incredible array of weird and wonderful costumes, all crafted, created, foraged and found by you talented bunch – check out the 2015 gallery for some of last year’s festival finest in Silver!

For 2016 there are three exciting ideas to choose from, so what do you want to parade around the Gardens in? Cast your votes below…

Fairy tales and Fantasy
Once upon a time at Larmer Tree… Grab your goblins, don your dwarves, pick your princesses, mould into a mermaid, create a creature… become the stuff of legends. Think favourite fairytales, myths and magical menagerie and we know you’ll look enchanting.

Magical Masquerade
Put your best faces forwards to create the most magical, masked mayhem. You may be a masked avenger, an elegant attendee at a masquerade ball, or wear an explosion of colour in the form of a feathered carnival inspired mask… we can’t wait to not see your faces! It’s time to get crafty, with extra points for dressing to match the mask.

From the Gardens…
Whether it be Larmer Tree Gardens, community gardens, or your very own grassy patch out back, take inspiration from the exotic to the everyday found there. Whether you’re flora, fauna, a creature, the green-fingered gardener themselves, a vegetable, or even a tool… keep it in the great outdoors!
