Used Fancy Dress Ball for the first time as I decided to go to a fancy dress party at late notice. Purchased a Cleopatra costume, along with a wig and snake bracelet and selected the next day delivery service. Arrived according to the tracking information, however upon obtaining the parcel from my neighbour i noticed the snake bangle actually pierced a hole through the bottom of the delivery box. The bracelet had a sharp point at the end of it but obviously it could've been damaged/broken which luckily wasn't. Tried the costume on: wig was fine, the dress portion of the costume was fine, the only let down was that there were some sequinned Velcro straps as part of the costume, that are supposed to go round the top of your arm which didn't fit and it seemed as if you'd have to be of child like proportions in order for them to fit adequately. For further confirmation I got my sister, who's a size 8, to try them and they didn't fit round her arms either. Bearing in mind the costume was supposed to be a size 12-14 the manufacturers obviously hadn't considered the sizing of these in relation to the rest of the costume. I ended up cutting these off, which wasn't a problem for me and i didn't feel like they 'took away from' the costume. Wore the costume the following night and got lots of compliments, however the chiffon shawl that was attached to a cuff on my wrist, started to tear on one arm which was a little disappointing but due to the strain on the fabric was bound to happen and is easily repairable.
