Fancy dress (or Fancy dress party) involves people dressing up in costume to resemble someone or something else. As a plot device it can be used to hide the identity of the culprit, or make it appear that someone else is the culprit. An elaborate costume can also be used to either hide a weapon, or give someone a reason to carry a weapon.
