    Re: dress up

    Hi cenerentola

    1. What are you going to dress up as for the carnival parade?

    2. How are you going to dress up for the carnival parade?

    Note, not How...dress up as for, but How ... dress up for.

    As written, No.1 is correct.

    However, you can say; 'how are you going to dress for the carnival parade ?'.
