Haven’t figured out your Heroes outfit yet? We’ve got you covered with our last minute guide

Denizen Heroes is exactly a week away. So for those of you who haven’t any clue what you’re wearing yet (join the club), that’s seven days to organise an outfit and all the necessary accoutrements to boot.

Despite us all suffering intermittent episodes of mild panic over the last few days, we decided to knuckle down and turn to the people and places in Auckland that have always seen us through our sartorial woes, discovering that really, this city’s offerings mean we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to event dressing. So, in a bid to help you lock down a last minute outfit that doesn’t actually look last minute, we rounded up some of the dresses, shoes and accessories you can source locally to have you looking and feeling like a hero yourself on the night.
