A Guide to Throwing A Costume Party in Singapore

Having a costume party in Singapore can change things up for your friends and family, who have probably been to so many parties these last few months.

The beauty of holding a costume party in Singapore is that there are so many options. Want a rooftop event? Can do. Want a costume party in an indoor playground? Possible.

All you need to execute these is to plan ahead—just like any other event. If you want to host your first dress up party, don’t worry, this is a checklist of everything you need to know. Have fun!

1. Pick a Party Date and Guests!

When planning a costume party in Singapore, it is first important to know how many people are coming to your party and when you want to hold it. 

Usually, the prime time to host parties is during Fridays and weekends. However, this means a lot of people are planning parties around this time too, so best to plan ahead! 

How do we know this? Most venue owners have their Fridays and weekends booked before any other day of the week. This can be quite a hassle especially during peak event times like Halloween (when most costume parties are held).

However, thanks to Venuerific’s event management system, double bookings are not possible. Hopefully, this makes it easier for both the customers and vendors to plan a dress up party in Singapore.

2. Choose a theme!

There are so many ways you can hold a costume party in Singapore. The standard one is to have no theme at all—people just wear whatever character, item, or thing they want. 

Other costume party themes, however, have more of a specific set of rules. Some want an old 1920s themed costume party, either want a pop-culture superhero party, and others want to dress according to their venue theme. 

3. Find the Perfect Venue!

The perfect dress up party venue in Singapore is just around the corner. What is great about Singapore is that it is a diverse and lively island, so it has something for any kind of party, whatever its theme.

For starters, those who want a general costume party (no rules, just come dressed however you want), can check out the 7th Heaven Cafe. With its spacious party rooms that have karaoke, celebrating an affordable but fun costume party in Singapore is possible here.

You can also consider hosting your next costume party in Singapore at The Masons Table. Equipped with an elegant ambiance and only a few minutes from the Central Business District, this area is perfect for a Victorian costume party.

Have your friends dress up as royals from whatever era of history and enjoy each other’s creativity! 

In contrast to a “Regal” costume party in Singapore is a Superhero-themed costume party in Singapore. This one is easy, popular, and all too fun.

Dress up as your favorite superhero from any comic blockbuster movie, comic, or TV cartoon in this theme. The key now is the location—where else better to celebrate like this than Stal? This private metal art event space has a pool, bbq area, and unique character statues to use. 

Next is a nature costume party theme in Singapore. Here, people can creatively dress as plants, flowers, animals, and more. When adapted to modern tastes, this costume party theme can truly be a #aesthetic event—especially if celebrated at Nalati Restaurant and Events

Nalati has its own event space and a unique, clean, and natural aesthetic that would be perfect for this costume party in Singapore.

Last, for the kids, a dress up party in Singapore is all the rage. For a unique take on this party, why not try a “Physical Activity” costume party in Kaboodle? Your kids can dress up in active wear or sportswear—cheerleader, basketball player, or yoga instructor.

Kaboodle is the perfect site for this as it is an indoor play space already. This is also one of our most unique kids birthday party venues, with birthday packages for up to 40 pax.

4. Plan the Food!

Once you have your venue prepared for your costume party in Singapore, you can now think of the food you want to serve. You can opt for indoor catering, outdoor barbecue and more.

Know the best food for your dress up party in Singapore by examining your theme. A superhero costume party, for example, can have sci-fi looking food. A regal banquet may want set meals.

5. Choose your decorations!

Next, dress up your venue. Your dress up party in Singapore will be elevated by this choice. Remember that decorations make it look like a real escape into a different world. General costume parties use the most minimal decorations to support any kind of costume. 

For other costume party theme ideas, you can get inspiration online or by chatting up your venue owners. Good thing Venuerific allows for easy communication between venue owner and customer!

6. Decide your games and prizes!

An optional but great choice for your costume party in Singapore is having games. These again can be in theme with your decorations. (Example: superhero charades for a superhero party). 

Popular party games include truth or dare, board games, card games, a singing competition, and even a guessing game.

The fun and magic of a costume party in Singapore will never stop. With easing of restrictions, everyone more than ever wants to party. However, this can also tire some people, so it is good to change things up once in a while. A costume party in Singapore, no matter what theme, will certainly do this.
