Firstly, may I welcome you to the website and thank you for taking the time to visit us. Abbafancydress.co.uk is a UK-based website dedicated to finding you the best ABBA costumes.
My name is Mark Nobes, and I am the website owner. I am 51 years old and grew up listening to my Mum's ABBA records and tapes back in the 1970s. Inevitably, I became a big fan of the band, went to see ABBA: The Movie, and listened to their songs on a daily basis. At the time, it was pretty uncool for a schoolboy to be listening to the band, and I learned to keep my love for their music to myself to avoid being picked on in the school playground!
However, at some point in the last 15 years, it actually started to become cool to listen to ABBA. Secret fans across the globe started to reveal their guilty pleasure, which includes Liam Gallagher and Jarvis Cocker! But it's not only the music people love, it's the fashion, too. Now people want to dress-up as Agnetha, Anni-Frid, Benny and Bjorn, and pretend they're back in the 70s once more. ABBA costumes are the coolest choice for a fancy dress party, and using this site you can quickly choose the right outfit for you, and enjoy pretending you're back in a time when Disco music and flares were king.
So which is your favourite song? My personal favourite is "Knowing Me, Knowing You", and the band's Arrival album is a firm favourite. My Mum bought the album on cassette, and I remember playing it countless times on her Philips Music Centre, which had a glass top. I also adore the track "Tiger", particularly the lyrics "I am behind you, I'll always find you, I am the tiger!". However, the first ABBA song I listened to on vinyl was "Dancing Queen" which had "That's Me" as the B-side.
Well, as you can tell by now, I am a huge fan! But I will end it here and say that I hope you really enjoy visiting the site.
