29th March 2011: Green Cross Code Man Fancy Dress Costume

29/3/2011 - Newbury, UK

Fancy Dress Warehouse is delighted to announce the launch of Orion Costume's brand new licensed costume line, the retro superhero, the Green Cross Code Man Costume.

The Green Cross Man was created in 1975 as part of the government's campaign to teach young children how to safely cross the road. British actor David Prowse MBE, a bodybuilder and former Mr. Universe who had, at the time just featured in Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange and later featured as Darth Vader in the Star Wars franchise, played the character in a well-known series of Public Information Films.

Beatrice Butler, Product Manager shared "Retro brands are back in a big way. Orion Costume's Green Cross Code Man is sure to appeal to kids of the 70s and 80s, most of whom are now amongst the most affluent of fancy dress buyers in the UK. This costume is thus an obvious choice for a key target market within the costume industry and marks an exciting step forward into the world of licensing for Orion Costumes."

Fancy Dress Warehouse have a 40,000 sq ft warehouse complex and orders placed before 12.00pm are shipped on the same day. They offer wholesale fancy dress with no minimum order quantity.
