IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic Special Costumes Questions and Answers
Do you like to wear special costumes?
Yes, I like wearing special costumes. They are worn by people either during an event or a themed occasion such as Halloween parties. I put on such special attires only during the Halloween season, and I must say that it’s one of the best times to see people showing off their extraordinary creativity by wearing such costumes.
Did you try any special costumes when you were young?
Oh, yes, I remember that my school organised fancy dress competitions where everyone had to dress differently. So, my ingenious mother dressed me as a Chocolate bar using aluminium foil covers and colour papers. It was an amazing costume that all my friends loved. The reason behind me dressing as a chocolate bar was because I was extremely fond of them.
When was the last time you wore special costumes?
Well, I recently attended one of my closest friend’s birthday party, which was themed on the Marvel movie, Avengers. So, I decided to become Captain America, and wore a costume with a long-sleeved blue & red t-shirt and blue pants, sewed with duct tape. However, I bought the fake vibranium shield online. I got a superhero feeling once I put on the costume.
Do you ever buy special costumes?
No. I don’t spend money buying special costumes, as they are worn occasionally. Rather, I create my own costumes, by purchasing the materials from the local shop that is required and then sew them together. This way, I’m able to exhibit my creativity.
