American Spirit

It is really great when people dress up in the spirit of the country they live in, be it America, Scotland, Mexico or wherever. During the day of their independence , they can dress up to represent the pride in their country. For America’s 4th of july, people dress up in the Babe Uncle Sam, the Army Uniform Child, and the Ms. Liberty. People even choose to re-enact the story of America’s independence with the Colonial Boy Child, the Colonial Girl Child, the Pilgrim Boy Child, and the Pilgrim Girl Child. Besides that, people love to dress up like the Army, Navy and Air force to show that they support them. They dress in the Air Force Falcon Headpiece Adult, the Army Mule Headpiece Adult, or the Marine Bulldog Adult. All these costumes have significant meanings to them and even though some might think these people are crazy for dressing up, they do it because they are free to do what they choose. And I guess thats what America is all...

Excited for 2008

I’m really excited to see all the new styles for the 2008 Halloween costumes that retailers and designing right now. There are so many different themes and fashions that the companies try to cover and it amazes me to see the various kinds. If you have a little girl who loves faiytales she could wear the Aurora Child, Belle Child, or the Cinderella Deluxe Child. If there is a rebellious teenager who doesn’t want to dress provocatively like the other girls in her high school class, she can wear such think like the Banana Teen, Lilith Goth Fairy Teen, or even the Raphael Muscle Child. The great thing about our generation is that girls can wear guy costumes and not be criticized or judged. Guys can wear girls costumes but it is usually with a humor intent, but the point is costumes are becomming available for anybody to wear. Even the dogs can wear whatever they want with their Batman Dog Pet, Heidi Puppy Pet, and Hot Dog Pet...

Costumes for 1920’s Indie Film Part II

Finding mens costumes for my 1920’s setting was not going to be easy or cheap. But thanks to Costume Kingdom I was able to pull it off and stay within my budget. The costume that I purchased the most of was the Black and White Zoot Suit Costume for Adults. Some of the men were heavier than others so thank goodness I was also able to buy the Plus Size Zoot Suit Costume that was also black and white. Since I did like the style of this Zoot Suit I also got the Yellow and Black Zoot Suit for Adults and of course the Plus Size Gold and Black Zoot Suit Costume. I bought about a doze of the Costume Polka Dot Tie accessory to go with all of the costumes. Another costume that I found that worked perfectly was the White Pinstripe Zoot Suit Costume that came with a hat and went perfectly with any of the girl costumes to match. I also bought the Turquoise Pinstripe Zoot Suite Costume just because I thought it would really make my main characters really stand out in their scenes. It also came with a snazzy hat and suspenders! Hopefully my film will be able to go to Sundance...
