Fashion frights! Soap stars in fancy dress Matt Bramford 12:40pm - Fri, October 24 0shares 0shares Photos of soap stars in fancy dress through the ages TAGS: coronation streetemmerdaleHollyoaksNeighbours 1/29 We’re in stitches (get it?) over Mick Carter’s Frankenstein costume, coming to EastEnders next week. Here we take a look back at some of the best soap fancy dress… 2/29 Gruesome twosome Heather and Shirley put in some serious effort (they really didn’t) to celebrate Heather’s hen do in 2008. Seriously, we could stare at this picture all day. 3/29 Kylie went all out (check out those fake tattoos) when she donned a beehive and huge gold hoops to Corrie’s jubilee party as the late, great Amy Winehouse. 4/29 Looks like Marcus wants to break free (!) from 1960s’esque Maria and Sean’s Freddie Mercury at the Jubilee party in 2012… 5/29 They sure know how to dress up in the Woolpack. That’s Bob as Dame Edna. Yep, you read that correctly! Ashley clearly borrowed Sean from Corrie’s Freddie Mercury outfit. 6/29 Aww cute, a couple that sucks blood together stays together. Kat and Alfie proved this at the Queen Vic’s Halloween party back in 2012. 7/29 Ghastly Grace made a strong effort here at the Windass’ Halloween party last year. Sally, where is your costume? Owen – a bit of fake blood on the cheek does not a Halloween costume… 8/29 Ah, that’s better. Faye’s Sporty Spice outfit might not be the most original at the Corrie’s Jubilee Street party in 2012, but don’t Anna and Owen look fabulous as Dolly Parton and… 9/29 2008: We’re not sure what’s scarier here… Genie’s spooky witch costume or Chas’s angry face… 10/29 We have no idea why Shirley is dressed as a country singer or why she seems to be covered in curry, but we like it. 11/29 Sure, we got Dev’s costume straight away, but it took us a little while to figure out Sunita was dressed a ‘Single Lady’ Beyonce at Corrie’s fabulous Jubilee Street Party. Uh-oh, uh… 12/29 Patrick looks fangtastic as a vampire back in 2013, although we’re not sure he could drink his usual glass of rum with those bad boys in. Ouch. 13/29 We know what you were thinking back in 2009, why didn’t I organise a Vicars and Liz McDonald party years ago? Well, nows your chance. But Graeme Procter’s way ahead of you! 14/29 Eva and Beth dressed to impress as pretty pop princesses Britney Spears and Madonna at the Jubilee party – loving the wig Madge! 15/29 Is it just us or is this costume a bit more Elton John then John Lennon? Either way, Steve rocked that stomach churning shirt and terrible wig at the Jubliee extravaganza. 16/29 Leyla and Alicia donned these saucy fancy dress costumes to flog burgers in 2014. Did Leyla (centre) borrow that PVC catsuit from Britney Spears? We suspect so. 17/29 Rodney entertains the kids at the Woolpack Halloween party in 2008 – look at little Belle at the front there! Cute. 18/29 Here’s Minty enjoying his stag do in the Queen Vic in 2008. We don’t know what happened to the sheep and we don’t want to either. 19/29 Peggy Mitchell (Babs Windsor) was scary enough behind the Queen Vic bar, without donning this Halloween garb. We’re shivering. 20/29 We bet a few ladies dropped their hankies for a suave Fat Boy when he wore a gentleman’s period costume in the Queen Vic. Not very scary though is it? 21/29 Here’s Roxy Mitchell dishing out Halloween treats to some punters who unfortunately think that throwing your bed sheet over your head is good enough for the Queen Vic’s Halloween party…. 22/29 Oh, it was Jay, Abby and Lola! We expected more from you. Come on guys, the white sheet thing is weak. 23/29 Sisters Kim and Denise brought some sassiness to the Square in 2012 as Catwoman and Wonder Woman. They’re fit and and don’t they know it! 24/29 Back in 2004, the ladies’ bowling team required a ringer, so instead of just finding one, they dragged up Jack Duckworth as his alter ego ‘Ida Fag’. Corrie comedy at its best. 25/29 We’re sure Gail Platt would call these three ‘witches’ whatever they were wearing. Here’s Eileen, Janice and Fiz at the Rovers’ Halloween bash in 2003. 26/29 I say I say I say! It’s a barely recognisable Fred Elliott as Frankenstein (right) with his bride Bev (centre). They’d clearly blown the budget on Fred’s get up, with poor Keith Duffy… 27/29 Another Fright Night in the Rovers – there’s gym-t-shirt-wearing Keith again, with Maria, Nick Tilsley 2.0 and his ghoul-friend Candice. 28/29 Saucy devil is the go-to look for a Rovers Return Halloween party, it seems. Karen McDonald, he’s behind you! Oh, that’s panto. Never mind. 29/29 Ah, Viv Windsor, yet another glamorous outfit straight from the catwalks of Paris. Or, maybe Pontefract. She glammed up with husband Bob for Emmerdale’s Jubilee celebrations in 2012….
