everyone involved can look back with pride that they helped create such a memorable event!
Newbury, Berkshire (PRWEB UK) 10 October 2011
Victory cries rang out through the valleys of South Wales last night as a new Guinness World record was set by fancy dress supremo, Jokers' Masquerade. With the help of Swansea University students, Jokers' Masquerade has broken the previous record for the largest gathering of skeletons, ever!
At 11.30pm on Saturday 8th October, Jokers' Masquerade became the new holder of the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of skeletons with a staggering 2018, obliterating the previous record of 197, set by The Paul O'Grady Show in 2009.
The event was held at Swansea University Students Union, with entertainment provided by international rock band, Wheatus, and Radio 1 DJ, Matt Edmondson, and Jokers' Masquerade supplied all students with scary skeleton costumes to provide an optical delight!
Jokers' Masquerade is the holder of the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of Smurfs, and the total of 2,510 remains unbeaten to this day! Donna Houguez, Marketing Manager, explains: “Jokers' Masquerade thought it would be a great idea to replicate our previous world record success using Halloween costumes from this very topical time of year. As Jokers' Masquerade is a fancy dress company, we like to have a bit of fun and thought a room full of 2,000 dancing skeletons would make for a fantastic sight. It certainly did, and everyone involved can look back with pride that they helped create such a memorable event!”
Jokers' Masquerade, which is based in Newbury, is the UK's online fancy dress company, winning the Hitwise Best Fancy Dress Website Award and being awarded the Internet in Retail Media Group Gold Status in 2011 to date. Key to the success of the company is its ethos of exemplary customer service, biggest range and most competitive prices.
