Gorilla fancy dress costumes are one of the funniest animal costumes that you can wore for some bizarre reason. I guess it’s because people like dressing up and running around like a crazy animal in a gorilla suit.
A gorilla costume is pretty straight forward. There are no shortcuts with this look. You have to just go for a full length gorilla suit. Be careful to buy one with a lighter fabric as the heavier ones can get a bit hot and sweaty.
A gorilla fancy dress costume can also be a very good idea for a movie themed fancy dress party as it can fit in with lots of different movies. The first idea that comes to mind is that you can pass it off as a king kong fancy dress costume. However it can fit in with other films such as planet of the apes.
There is also a really funny scene in the Eddie Murphy comedy Trading Places where the bad guy in the film is tricked in to wearing a gorilla suit and a real gorilla falls in love with him. So it could actually be a funny 80s fancy dress idea – go along as the gorilla out of trading places!
