Father Ted Crilly

How to Create a Father Ted Fancy Dress Costume

There's no doubt that Father Ted was one of the finest comedies to come out of the 90s. For this post, I'm going to show you how to put together a Father Ted Crilly outfit. He was, of course, played by the late Dermot Morgan.

Mens Cheap Black Suit for Father Ted Costume

Black Suit

In the series, Crilly rarely wore a full priest robe and was often dressed in a dark suit with the collar and shirt worn underneath. So, if you have a dark grey or black suit then you're already halfway to completing your look! If not, then this black suit by You Look Ugly Today (charming name!) is the cheapest I could find for fancy dress purposes.


Priest Shirt and Collar

Buying an authentic priest shirt and collar is pretty expensive (around £30). However, thankfully, a fancy dress version is available from Bristol Novelties on Amazon for less than a third of the price.
