Are you looking for costumes beginning with Q? If you are I’m going to assume you’ve been invited to an alphabet party. I created this post as one of a series of resource pages for people who have been invited to alphabet parties.
When I was in my early 20s they were all the rage, somehow everytime I was invited to one it was always a P party which meant dressing up as something beginning with the letter P. You can choose any letter of the alphabet however and today I’ve chosen the letter Q.
The letter Q is definitely one of the harder letters of the alphabet to come up with costume ideas that don’t require coming as a Queen of something or other, but a challenge is always fun – don’t you think?
Fancy dress parties or costume parties are so much more fun when they’re themed, but you don’t always want to have an 80s party, a Game of Thrones dress up event or even a Star Wars themed party. Choosing a letter to base your party around is fun because seeing how people interpret it can be really interesting…..some people really know how to think outside of the box.
Costumes Starting with Q – The List
- Q (James Bond) – Where would James Bond be without the inventive back-ups provided for him by Q? All you need to a white lab coat and some fun gadget that looks like a simple thing such as a pen.
- Quark – From Star Trek Deep Space 9, Quark was the Ferengi owner of the bar and club. Licensed Star Trek costumes were available for a while, but apparently they’re a little harder to find these days.
- Quasimodo – The Hunchback of Notre Dame aka Quasimodo is a popular choice for a ‘Q’ costume and can be a lot of fun.
My hubby chose this costume idea for a fancy dress party at his work, it worked really well as he shuffled along and held his head to one side. Definitely a good winner in their costume competition, even if I am biased!
- Queens – Chess Queen, Queen Arwen, Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria, Queen of Hearts, Queen of the Nile, Queen Singer aka Freddy Mercury, there’s quite a list for you to choose from.
- Quidditch Player
