Best Marathon Fancy Dress

20 April 2017

It’s that time again, the London Marathon is quickly approaching and we can’t wait to watch our pals from the sidelines with a pint in hand and spotting the weirdest and best fancy dress costumes hitting the pavement.

So what’s the craziest things we’ve seen so far from year’s past? Oh settle in...

THE PHONEBOX

It’s not quite anything like you’ve ever seen on Dr. Who, this guy (or girl!) literally ran in a phone box. How. Did. He. Do. It.

THE OSTRICH

I mean, we’re totally scared of the London pigeons so not sure how we feel about ostriches flapping about through the city.

MARIO KART

Watch out for the bananas! This Nintendo favourite was brought to life by this clever crew. We call being Princess Peach, as always.

COOL RUNNINGS

We imagine that this wasn’t really keeping quite so cool as this group recreated our favourite Bobsled team for the marathon.

ALADDIN

Who doesn’t love this dreamy character? Think we need to see the Genie this year… Any takers?

So, what do we hope we’re in store for this year?

BRIDESMAIDS

We’d love to see a crew of ladies rocking the Bridesmaids look.

BOWIE

Rocking a tribute, we really want to see Ziggy Stardust in action.

ONE DIRECTION

Can we get a reunion in marathon form please?

EMOJIS

So, topical. We want to see the crying laughing emoji and the avocado.

UNICORN

Don’t act like you don’t want to look like a Rainbow My Little Pony. Fingers crossed we see a unicorn running.
