The culture of the Costumes

Though costumes are usually clothes that reflect movie characters, hilarious objects or intensely sex-ed up wardrobe, a good majority of them represent a certain cultures traditional clothes. Our generation loves to learn and discover different cultures that have deep traditional rituals like food, design and dress. For example, most Americans love Japan’s traditional style as the Geisha Gal Adult, Geisha Kimono Deluxe Adult, Japanese Geisha Adult, Lotus Flower Geisha Adult, Red Kimono Geisha Plus Size Adult, Sexy Adult Geisha, Sexy Dragon Geisha, and the Sexy Enchanting Geisha. Of course these are America’s take on what traditional Japanese style would be so they are not 100% accurate. Another traditional culture that is very popular is the Swedish/German style with the Sexy Gretchen Adult, Sexy Heidi Adult, Sexy Serving Wench or even the Dutch Girl Adult. Some other misc. popular cultures include the Cleo Queen Adult, Deluxe Greek Goddess Adult, Deluxe Harem Princess Adult, Luscious Leprechaun Adult, Native Princess Adult, Sexy Can-Can Girl Adult and the Sexy England Flag Mini Dress Adult.

Movie Mise-en-sine

A movie is not a movie if it doesn’t have a style. And what is the main component of a movie that gives it a style. The costumes of course! Film makers young and old know the way to visually enhance a story is to have successful costumes that help construct your story. You can’t shoot the movie “Robin Hood” without having the Robin Hood Adult, Maid Marian Adult, Braiden Maiden Burgundy, Feathered Prince Hat Green, Lady in Waiting Renaissance Adult, Monk Brown Plus Size, and the Medieval Valiant Knight Plus Size. You couldn’t make “Pirates of the Caribbean” without Cap’n Cutthroat Adult Plus Size, Captain Jack Sparrow Prestige Adult, Davey Jones Deluxe Adult, Maccus Sharkman Adult, Elizabeth Pirate Deluxe Adult, and the Elizabeth Empress Deluxe Child. For any movie, costumes move the story forward.

Plus size

We live in a time where our tolerance towards other people’s differences is the largest ever. But one thing our American culture has not been so progressive about is body image. American media has always strongly convinced people to look a certain way in order to be considered beautiful. Many people are not born to fit into a size 2 pants and they shouldn’t have to feel bad about it. Our store has over 200 plus size costumes that are exactly the same as the smaller size costumes, just fit to a different size.

For women, there are such costumes as the 7 PC Penal Code Penny, Black Playboy Bunny Adult Plus Size, Eskimo Cutie Adult Plus Size, French Maid Adult Plus Size, Rhinestone Cowgirl Plus Size Adult, Sexy Prep School Delinquent Plus Size, Sexy Swashbuckler Adult Plus Size, and the Sexy Varsity Cheerleader Plus Size. For men, there is the Deluxe Robin Hood Adult Plus Size, Ghostbusters Adult Plus Size, Beer Man Adult Plus Size, Big Daddy Plus Size, Deluxe Pirate Adult Plus Size, Elvis Rock Legend Big and Tall, Hercules Costume Plus Size, and the PJ Jammies Blue Plus Size. Anybody can be anyone they want to be for Halloween, no waist size required.

When I was younger, for some reason I always dressed up like a cat for Halloween. I don’t know why, but I loved putting on the ears, tail, and whiskers

masks, Masks, MASKS!

One great thing about purchasing a mask for Halloween is you don’t have to really work hard on finding the rest of the costume to wear. If you have a really great mask, nobody will even notice that you’re wearing your regular clothes. Lets say you decide to wear the Homer Simpson Mask Oversized. You only have to wear blue jeans, a white shirt and the mask! There are a lot of masks you can wear this way like the Bart Simpson Mask Adult, Cartman Vinyl Mask Adult, Eminem Mask Adult, Govenator Mask, the Geico Caveman Latex Mask and many more! Even though many masks make it easy to dress up, some make it really, really difficult. Masks like the

Happy Valentines Day

Its Valentines Day which is all about love and appreciation. What would be cuter on a holiday like this than dressing up for the theme? Costumes are truly the number one way to show appreciation because of the dedication put into dressing up. If your a little girl and want to surprise your folks in the morning, you could pop into their room wearing the Heart Princess Toddler, Sweetheart Fairy Child, with the Pink Heart Purse, or the Velvet Red Heart Purse. For the older crowd, I suggest the Cupid Adult, Deluxe Queen of Hearts Adult Plus Size, Queen of Hearts Deluxe Adult, the Sexy Queen of Hearts Adult, and the Sexy Queen of Hearts Off the Shoulder Dress Adult. Some costumes that are a bit more personal for Valentine sweety are the Super Sexy Queen of Hearts Adult, the Heart On Adult,

Sleepover!

When I was in elementary school, I loved to go to and have slumber parties. Theres nothing better than having a group full of little girls running around the house, watching cheesy love story movies and feeding off of each others crazy energy. One activity I always loved the most was dress-up. I don’t know why, but I thought it was so fun to wear outfits like the Barbie Blushing Bride, Barbie Fairy Elina Prestige, Barbie Deluxe Genevieve, and the Barbie Deluxe Princess Rosella. I have to say, the Barbie corporation really knows how to appeal to little girls. They don’t stop with just the typical bride, fairy or princess theme at all. Their inventory also includes Angel Barbie Child, Barbie Diva Costume, Barbie Magical Sorceress, Barbie Prima Ballerina, Barbie Team Spirit Cheerleader, Barbie Varsity Cheerleader, Cowgirl Barbie Child, and the Sweet Sorceress Barbie. So many outfits for so many adventures!

Costume Barbeque

Me and my friends will find any reason to throw a party, so we decided to spice things up a bit this time. We’re having a summer barbeque couples costume party! You don’t necessarily have to be dating or married to the person you pair up with but the idea is that you have to match someone else. We also decided that 4 people can dress together as well, as long as it is divisible by two. Since it’s my friends party he’s going to dress up as The Bun Maker Costume

Superhero celebration!

I just recently watched a movie called “Mystery Men” starring Ben Stiller, and it was so hilarious! One scene that popped into my mind afterwards was their superhero try-outs party (Dane Cook actually plays one of the phony superheros named “The Waffler”…wow). I was thinking how funny it would be to throw a superhero party where people dress like actual superheros like the Batman Deluxe Muscle Chest Adult, the Captain America Muscle Adult, the Collectors Batgirl Adult, the Collectors Superman Adult, the Deluxe Hellboy Adult, the Deluxe Wolverine Muscle Adult, the Full Figured Wonder Woman Adult, the Iron Man Muscle Adult, the Mr. Incredible Deluxe Adult, the Spiderman Adult Costume, and many MANY more! In addition to all these fantastic classic superhero costumes, other people can come as made up superheros like the Super Sperm Superhero, the Sexy Mystery Hero Adult, the Spider Hero Adult, Beer Man Adult, Captain Condom Adult, Mr. BBQ Man, Remote Control Crusader, Super 6 Pack Man, and of course Tooth Fairy Adult!!!
