What to wear at a paint party?

So you are going to a UV paint party…  You are going to get paint on you so you need to be prepared (clothing wise) for the night.  You can read a bit more about what a paint party is here.

Do
Wear flat shoes
Tie your hair back
Buy a decent boiler suit
Buy UV facepaint
Wear white clothes
Wear fluorescent clothing
Wear freaky white masks
Consider wearing shorts
Tie you hair back
Put your important belongings i.e. phone in a ziplock/plastic bag
Consider wearing  a morphsuit

Dont
Wear heels
Wear your best clothes
Put on your brand new trainers
Be frightened to wear old skool ravers wear!
Forget to put some nice clean clothes in the cloakroom for after the party – or the after party! (you don’t want taxi drivers turning you away because you are too messy!)
Wear anything suede – it will probably get ruined.

Although our Luminosity UV paint is non-toxic and non-staining it can still stain some fabrics so it’s best not to take any chances.  So basically don’t wear your new £150 jumper – it’s not that type of night!

Wearing cheap white or UV fluorescent clothing is a good move.  The white and the fluorescent clothing will look great under the UV lights.  You can buy quite nice cheap white clothing from places such as Primark, H&M and other places on the high street.  If you decide to wear something that is of reasonably good quality then we always sell boiler suits at our events. Be warned – Do not buy the suits from the poundshop they invariably do not keep the paint out!!!

Regarding footwear, wear an old pair of trainers or flat shoes.  We always provide non slip matting at our events because the paint can get extremely slippery and after a few shandy’s you have got no chance!  Wearing heels to an event like this is a bad idea!!

This is not a be all and end all list…  If you can add anything to it please let us know :)

What am I going to wear at a Foam Party?

So you’ve got your ticket and you and your friends are getting ready for the best night your local night club has hosted in a very long time. As with any event, the first thing you do is dive into your wardrobein an effort to find something suitable to wear. But then comes the dilemma; what are you supposed to you wear at a foam party? Firstly you have to remember that you’re going to get wet so keep any clothing light and tight fitting.  The following is some general advice and ideas of what to wear to look your best:

 

For the boys….

As most foam parties take place in the summer months, wearing shorts, t-shirts and beachwear is advisable, but don’t be afraid to have fun with your choice of attire. You may want to complete your summer beach look with goggles, a snorkel or even a swimming cap.  For those that are feeling really brave why not wear your normal clothes then strip down to a pair of speedo’s when the foam starts? Just put your dry clothes in the cloakroom and change into them at the end of the night. We have also seen people turn up in a full suit and tie – they stood out as well – hope it wasn’t their Sunday best!

 

For the girls….

Again you should be thinking of practical summer type clothing that will sit well into the night club surroundings. Short skirt, hot pants, a bikini top, vest tops are all great options. Remember to keep make-up to a minimum and waterproof mascara is an absolute must.Although you may love to wear your killer heels on a night out, it’s probably best to leave those at home for the night and opt for some simple flip flops, flats or pumps.  If you really feel the need to wear heels make sure they are only small, it could get slippery in the club.

 

With regards to keeping up appearances, don’t worry too much because everyone is going to get wet – it’s all part of the fun.  Although saying that, the following ideas will keep you looking at your best and will stop you getting that dreaded drowned rat look!

 

  • Tie back your hair – possibly into a messy bun, pony tail or plat.
  • A good pair of shades wouldn’t go amiss.
  • Keep make-up to a minimum and make sure the make-up you wear is waterproof.
  • White tops can become see-through so wear a bikini or swimsuit underneath.
  • Remember flat shoes will stop you slipping.

Handbag essentials – You may be going to a foam party but a handbag is still a must, and the contents are important too. Remember to bring along a hairbrush and your waterproof mascara. Invest in a plastic zip-lock bag to keep your mobile phone/camera dry.

As well as knowing what to wear to a foam party, it’s also essential to know what not to wear:

Anything suede – suede is one of those materials that does not react well to getting wet at the best of times – so avoid suede shoes and jackets.

Leather jackets – again for similar reasons to suede leather can get wet but it can leave a “tide mark” when it dries.

Wool – Woollen items will misshape as it dries and will be uncomfortably heavy when it gets wet.

Another good idea would be to take a bag of dry clothes with you for the journey home. Something as simple as a nice dry t-shirt will be sufficient enough. Even if the weather outside is baking it will still be a more comfortable option to change your top for the way home.  Watch how envious your friends are when you conjure up that dry item at the end of the night.  To keep any clothing dry throughout the evening make use of the cloakroom facilities; they are worth every penny.

A sealer bag is also a good idea to keep phones and cameras safe.

We are really pleased to announce the launch of our new office based in Coventry!  This together with our office based in Scotland means we can now offer exceptional value for money and the very best foam parties across the UK.

 

For foam parties in Coventry you can still call our main office based on the South coast or email us.  From Coventry we can access the Midlands very easily from Grimsby to Nottingham.  North Wales also becomes easier for us to reach so to do a foam party in any part of Wales call us for a quote!

Remember we are one of the oldest and biggest foam party and nightclub entertainment companies in the UK.  We have worked at nearly every venue that has held a foam party over the years at some point.

Liverpool and Manchester have some world renowned clubs and would love to come and do more work in these awesome cities (I have had some very blurry nights out up there before).  A foam party in Manchester is now a lot easier for us to deliver and means we don’t need lodgings or an uncomfortable night in the van!  Likewise a few more foam parties in Liverpool wouldn’t go amiss!  Liverpool is a great city with an amazing nightlife and some truly amazing nightclubs.

As per usual we pride ourselves on delivering exactly what our customers want foam & foam parties!

This article advises the best and easiest ways to hold a sweet sixteen foam party or any other under 18 birthday foam party.

We get lots of calls from parents and 15 year olds wanting to hold a foam party but don’t know the best way to go about it the following details, from experience the best way and most cost effective ways of doing it!

The Nightclub option:

The main ingredients for a successful foam party are a DJ, plenty of foam, lighting, loads of guests and maybe some UV lights!

Plenty of foam is easy!  Contact us to sort it for you.

With regards to a venue we always get asked can we do one in a village hall?  We can, but there are lots of safety concerns that both we and the hall owners need to address before a party can take place.  We have found the most cost effective way to solve the venue issue, as well as the DJ and lighting, is to hire your local nightclub!

Many nightclubs are only open three out of seven nights which means they have 4 nights which they will be available for private hire.  A nightclub will have a resident DJ and all the lights are in place.  Invariably they host a couple of foam parties a year anyway so know how to get their venues ready.  This option also means that you haven’t got to clean anything up, risk damage to your property or have to control guests so much as door staff will do this for you! Perfect!

What happens if I haven’t got a nightclub near me?

The alternative to the above is to bring in our mobile nightclub / mobile foam party!  We have put together many really good sweet sixteen foam parties in marquees, outdoors in our foam pit or in outbuildings.  As long as you have a suitable venue space – we can organise the rest!  We have run a successful DJ agency for years and have a really impressive mobile disco rig.  Over the years we have held foam parties in all kinds of buildings and marquees….  Call us and see how we can help you!

Foam parties have always been a favourite for promoters and nightclub owners – particularly on the Sunday as something special has to be pulled out the bag!   With weather like this what could be better than a foam party for that something special and just a little different to the usual club night.

This Bank holiday is a little unusual as we have also got the Tuesday off too!!
