Christmas Goes to the Dogs

December 8, 2011

Strings of lights are shining bright this time of the year, songs of carolers fill the air, stockings are hung, trees are decorated and Santa Claus is visiting a mall near you to learn what kids want for Christmas. Recently, I was admiring our lighted Christmas tree in the dark with the fluffy Corgi members of the family cuddled at my feet. The thought occurred to me that our furry friends needed to feel apart of the festivities this season. So the next day I was off to find some Christmas dog costumes for our Corgi mascots, Jaina and Kira.

It doesn’t matter that your pet doesn’t realize it is Christmas. They are certain to notice their new Santa squeak toys, candy shaped treats and the jingle bells fastened to their collar. Add to the fun by keeping your pet warm, fashionable and festive in dog Christmas costumes, too! Christmas costumes for dogs is great for bringing additional holiday spirit into your home this season. Your dog’s festive Christmas outfit is sure to bring a smile to your family’s face and begin more than one jolly conversation at that holiday party that you are hosting.

We carry a few great Christmas costumes for dogs. They are sized from Small to X-large so that they can fit every breed from a Maltese or Papillon to a Labrador or Golden Retriever. One of my favorite outfits is the dog Elf Costume. It transforms your pet into Santa’s little helper with the help of a green tunic with red pom-pom trim, matching green elf hat and ankle cuffs trimmed with plush red pom-poms. If your pooch isn’t a big fan of wearing christmas dog clothes, then you can choose something less invasive like an accessory. Our Reindeer antlers, jingle bell collar and mini Santa Claus hat are a few examples of what you could dress-up your pup with instead!

I guarantee you will have a paws-itively great time with your pet dressed up for the holidays. After all, our Corgis were all smiles as are everyone who visits our home.

Deck the halls with plenty of sex appeal in our new collection of J. Valentine Christmas costumes. This 2011 collection of sexy Christmas costumes is ready to bring the holly jolly spirit of the holidays to the streets! J. Valentine is referring to it as the biggest party of the year and has created beautifully festive designs for you to strut your stuff through the streets. I have to agree that the right Christmas costume can really infuse one with the holiday spirit as well as make the event so much more fun!

The sexy Christmas costumes by designer J. Valentine feature a collection of Santa-inspired dresses, coordinating bikini sets, skirt ensembles and furry leg warmers with pom-pom ties. Flaunting around in any one of these sexy Christmas costumes is sure to put you on Santa Claus’ naughty list. The clubwear-inspired designs will have you looking like a hit at the holiday party or at the club. I am going to introduce you to some of my favorites (not listed in any specific order)!

1. Sexy Santa Corset & Skirt Costume – It includes a red stretch velvet corset featuring black lace-up torso, side zipper and sweetheart neckline trimmed in white faux fur and a matching mini skirt with deluxe faux fur hem. This flirty and festive Mrs. Claus costume is sure to heat things up at any holiday event, Christmas party or to fa-la-la your special muse. I would recommend adding a Santa hat and petticoat (sold separately) to complete it!

2. Sexy Santa Hooded Mini Dress with Thick Trim– Made of high quality red stretch velvet and deluxe white faux fur, this hooded mini dress features long sleeves, thick black grommet buckle belt and a flirty zipper front that extends to the mid-section for that extra low cut! What really sets this sexy Santa dress apart from the rest is the extra thick

Sexy Santa Corset & Skirt Costume

faux fur that trims the hem, cuffs and hood which really demands attention. I like that it can be worn as regular holiday attire anywhere you go or to a Christmas party. If you aren’t looking to show off so much leg in your winter wonderland, just add some black leggings! Also check out the version with black faux fur trim for a more sultry appearance!

3. Anything with the J. Valentine Furry Legwarmers! I am a big fan of the faux fur leg warmers with pom-pom ties. The opportunities are endless as you can wear then over your bare legs, hosiery or leggings! They have become extremely popular as clubwear, but make for a festive accessory with your everyday wear over leggings or with a Christmas costume. The Christmas collection from J. Valentine includes the Holiday Striped Fur Legwarmers, Jingle Bell Legwarmers, Sexy Santa Pom-Pom Legwarmers, Pink Holiday Pom-Pom Legwarmers, Gold Holiday Pom-Pom Legwarmers, Silver Holiday Pom-Pom Legwarmers and the Metallic Silver Striped Furry Legwarmers.

One of my favorite parts about the J. Valentine Christmas costumes is that you can purchase each piece separately to create a unique ensemble using the mix-and-match method. A great example is the White Holiday Hooded Fur Jacket can be paired with any of their dress, bikini or skirt sets. Are the faux fur trimmed mini skirts too short for your liking? No problems – just add some fun holiday leggings, petticoat or pantyhose. And those fun, furry legwarmers go right over your leggings and shoes for a playful finish. At the end, you have a one-of-a-kind Christmas costume that is all of your own creation.

November 23, 2011

It is that time of the year when we reflect on all the highs and lows of life. We all made it through another year to realize that it is time to celebrate and give thanks for all of our blessings. I took a second to look around and remind myself of all the things that I have to be thankful for. It is a very enlightening and warming experience that I recommend to all of our readers.

There are different triumphs and challenges that we have all experienced for 2011 and can be thankful for some many different things – friends, family, accomplishments, health or new events to name a few. So snap some pictures this holiday season and take everything in to create more memories to treasure and be thankful for. When you are gathered around friends and family for the Thanksgiving feast, be sure to kiss your muse, hold your kids and hug your friends – yes, even the jolly drunk ones! And remember … those homemade pies are calorie free this time of the year so take that extra piece of goodness!

Epic Greek Costumes Coming to a Theater Near You

November 11, 2011

A 3D fantasy adventure film from the directors of 300 is releasing to theaters today, 11-11-11, under the title Immortals. It is loosely based on the Greek myths of Theseus and the Minotaur and the Titanomachy. Theseus (Henry Cavill of Superman: Man of Steel), is a mortal man chosen by Zeus to lead the fight against his ruthless nemesis King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke), who is on a rampage across ancient Greece to obtain a weapon that can destroy humanity.

The costume epics and the CGI are being talked about in the reviews and by critics. Brian Gallagher of MovieWeb.com reports as being really taken by the Greek costumes and commented that they were ‘just amazing.” In his interview with Isabel Lucas who portrays Athena the Goddess of War, she describes her character’s outfits as unbelievable, beautiful, gruesome and so creative. Although she stated it was very physically impractical to wear (with the corsets and chain-link skirt weighing nearly 44 pounds), the costume encouraged her to embody her character while feeling very regal on the movie set.

Freida Pinto, who stars as the Oracle priestess Phaedra, agreed that she also got to wear some beautiful costumes. One of her Greek style costumes in Tarsem Singh’s Greek epic fantasy Immortals included a tight corset. “As beautiful as the costume was, it was a challenge learning to deal with it,” she shared during an interview. TheHollywood, Bollywood personality admitted that it was a challenge breathing in it.

Recent films telling the tales of Ancient Greece mythology hasn’t disappointed the critics with their beautifully designed costumes. 300, Clash of the Titans,Troyand Gladiator are other examples of ancientGreecemythology movies that feature epic Greek costume designs. Gerard Butler as King Leonidas in his Spartan Warrior costume and Lena Headey portraying Queen Gorgo in her sexy white toga remain among the favorites.

Become your own mythological legend at your next costume party or movie event. Our selection of Greek costumes is sized for men, women, teens, boys and girls. Whether you choose to be a Spartan warrior, Greek myth, Goddess, sexy siren or a Grecian in a toga, you will find what you are looking for within our selection of Greek costumes.

Celebrity Costumes and Celebrities in Costume

November 4, 2011

Celebrities were on parade in costumes over the Halloween weekend. Both celebrities dressed in costume and everday people dressed in costume as celebrities. Seeing the large variety of 2011 costumes in the spotlight over the internet was entertaining to look through. From Heidi Klum’s Invisible Woman to Kim Kardashian’s Poison Ivy, the costumes were fun and creative.

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi dressed in the Frisky Leopard Costume by J Valentine. Dressed in this sexy ensemble complete with scarlet red hair extensions and white feline contacts, Snooki hosted a spine-chilling Halloween bash at the Pure Nightclub at Caesars Palace. She even enhanced to sexy Leopard Costume with leopard spots bodypaint, black lip liner, long fingernails and thigh high boots.

Not the only celebrity donning a J Valentine costume, Laura J. Croft sported the Happy Kitty Costume. Resembling the Hello Kitty Costume, this Happy Kitty Costume included the track-style jacket dress, hood with pom-pom ties and a plush backpack. Laura J Croft was all smiles in her Hello Kitty Costume by J Valentine.

One of our favorite shots was a group dressed as President Obama and Mr. T with a dead Osama Bin Laden corpse in a Navy Seal box. This duo was very creative and took first prize in their costume contest. Mr. T was dressed in an army camoflauge jumpsuit with strands of gold beads and a mohawk. President Obama wore our Obama mask and was dressed in a suit. The Navy Seal box contained our Osama Bin Laden costume and was complete with comical US Navy Seals stickers.
