Fancy Dress?
 
Does anyone else really not get the point of Fancy Dress?

I do not get the need to spend money in order to dress up and meet with other people who are dressed up, especially if you already know them. What exactly does this help with?

Am I the only person who can't see it?

Dressing nicely is a way of showing respect to the other people around you.

Well, I'd rather show my respect by actually showing my respect, not through fancy unpractical costumes I'm supposed to wear. And if people are bothered by that and need me to run around in outfit #7, they don't really deserve said respect ;)

Yeah it's a general pain in the ass, but really no one is FORCING you to do it. It's just that you'll stand out like a sore thumb and probably receive negative criticism from others if you don't dress up.

I hate dressing up but I did for my sister's wedding because it was a major occasion with photos and everything and if I dressed like a normally do (goth/punk/metal), I know I'd NEVER hear the end of it. I decided one day of dress beats a lifetime of hearing about how I was a jerk for not doing it.

Now if it's not something major like say a siblings wedding then I say just dress however the fuck you want but depending on the event YMMV.

Nope I fucking hate it, I don't find it 'fun' in the slightest, waste of money, waste of time, what's the fun in looking like a twat for a night.

I personally love it. I canít wait for an excuse to. I adore gentlemenís style of yesteryear, particularly suits and shoes. But I also need F U elements like long hair and beard.

I've been to two fancy dress parties in the last few years. One was a superhero theme and I went as Sherlock Holmes because I already had a deerstalker and a tweed jacket (don't ask). The other was a 'come dressed as a song' party. I wore combats and my camo jacket, pinned seven different flags to my sleeves and went as Seven Nation Army by the White Stripes.

You don't have to spend money, just use your imagination. People who go overboard with it usually end up looking like twats anyway.

And remember, you can always go as a psychopathic serial killer. THEY LOOK JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE.

I think a few of us posters are confused, I know I certainly am. Does the OP mean dressing up as super heroes etc, or is he referring to dressing up for formal functions? I have no interest in the former.

fancy dress (super hero, costume stuff etc) as opposed to formal dress (and looking stylish etc).

Yeah, I guess Iím not fanatical enough about anything to go that far.
