These caveman fancy dress costumes are great for stone aged themed parties. You can pair them with a cavegirl fancy dress uniform to make a great couples fancy dress idea.
If you want to really carry of the caveman/cavegirl look you really have to get in to character. Minimize all speech as much as possible and instead try and communicate in grunts. So if you want a beer don’t ask politely for one – instead grunt and point, if one doesn’t getting handed to you very quickly then get agitated jump up and down and bang your club.
Caveman romance is another skill you will have to master. Forget about sweet nothings, suave conversation and flowers. Instead think alpha male leader of the caveman pack. The guy in the caveman costume just needs to walk up to the object of his affections bang them on the head and drag them away. Probably best not to hit them too hard though. There is such a thing as getting too much in to character.
You’ll probably be expected to bring some nibbles along to the party. Stay away from processed food as your simple caveperson digestive system will not be able to stomach such complex food. The best food to bring is something you have hunted yourself – although when I say hunted for you might want to make your territory the supermarket aisle. Go big on bones, flesh and blood. Chicken and turkey drumsticks are perfect for the caveman look.
Good accessories for the caveman fancy dress costume include fake clubs, fake bones, the fake corpses of your enemies… and if you fancy going for some historical inaccuracy how about a dinosaur sidekick (man and dinsosaur never co-existed on earth duting the same time period).
Another spin on the caveman look is to go for a celebrity caveman. So you might choose to don a Fred Flintstone fancy dress costume of a Stig of the Dump fancy dress costume. Your options are going to be fairly limited though as not many cavemen became big television stars.
Stig of the dump was famously surrounded by his five children friends who discovered him and looked after him. So you could have one person dress up as Stig of the Dump and a group of others dress up as nerdy 40s children.
Fred Flintstone always had his wife Wilma his pals Barney and Betty Rubble. So that would make a great fancy dress idea for two pairs of couples.
