The record for group Smurf dress-up has been smashed:
The Welsh city was turned blue as a group of 2,510 people, the majority of whom were students from the local university, crammed into the Oceana nightclub to almost double the previous record.
The event was organised by UK fancy dress costume seller Jokers’ Masquerade and was not verified until 1am as every “Smurf” had to be checked to make sure no natural skin was showing.
The record was previously held by the town of Castleblayney in County Monaghan, Ireland, which recorded 1,253 Smurfs gathered in the high street last year.
Rebecca Oatley, of Jokers’ Masquerade, said: “Smurf Guinness World Record holder has become an illustrious title.
“There have been five attempts over the last 18 months, with Swansea trumping Castleblayney’s 1,253 Smurfs recorded last year.
