One thing I have learned as I have been to different states is you don’t have to be in Munich, Bavaria, Germany to celebrate Oktoberfest! The Oktoberfest celebrations are held throughout the world and generally last over a set weekend. You will find that this German festival offers plenty of German beer, bratwurst sausages, sauerkraut and pretzels. Oktoberfest generally offers live music, Bavarian beer garden for a beerfest and traditional Bavarian fun.

Are you ready for Oktoberfest 2010? Don’t wait until it is too late! Determine if you are going to dress-up in Oktoberfest fashion whether it be your Beer girl costume or the German Lederhosen costumes. Our selection of Oktoberfest costumes includes a fetching Fraulein, German girl, Bavarian beer guy, beer can, beer garden girl, Miss Oktoberfest, Hansel, Gretel, Gretchen, Alpine boy, lil’ Dutch girl, beer pong babe, funny ‘I Love Wieners’ dress and plenty of Lederhosen costumes to go around. The variety includes adult, kids, teen, toddler and plus sizing.

If you aren’t going to wear a full costume, have you considered costume accessories to look festive for the occasion? You can choose from fun Oktoberfest accessories such as a beer stein purse, beer mug glasses, beer mug hat, Oktoberfest clucker plush hat, beer mug costume jewelry, beer belly to fill up with drinks, a bra to fill up with wine, petticoats, costume tights and blonde costume wigs. Put your beer goggles on and enjoy the Bavarian fun sights!

Oktoberfest is a fun event that the entire family can participate in. Girls put on their apron dresses with peasant tops while men sport their lederhosen outfits. Enjoy the traditional German fare, music and festivities in true Bavarian fashion for 2010. It also adds to the photo opportunities and memories!

Spotlight: Speed Demon Sexy Racer Girl Costume

September 21, 2010

Built for Speed - Racer Girl Costume

 Character: Speed Demon Sexy Racer Costume
Accessories: Fishnet Pantyhose, Sexy Black Go-Go Boots 

Model: Allison Tan
Photographer: Tim Vo
Location: Asylum Motorcycles in La Puente, CA 

Gentlemen, start your engines! Things really revved up when Allison stepped foot in the garage wearing her sexy racer girl costume. She looked like she was suited up in the race track’s sexiest uniform. Not your typical biker babe, this woman is a true motorcycle girl with a need for speed. She owns a black Kawasaki Ninja 250 that she rides nearly everyday. When I asked her what she likes most about street bikes she responded, “They look sporty and are fun to ride. Good gas mileage, quicker than my truck and it gives me a sense of freedom.” 

For our Racer Girl Costume Photoshoot, we decided to spotlight the Speed Demon sexy racer costume. This 2-piece sexy racer girl costume included a black romper with checkerboard printed trim that run down the collar and long sleeves. A bright yellow stripe runs vertically on each side of the racer girl romper and comes complete with racing inspired badges around the piece. The plunging v-neck cut neckline of the sexy racer girl costume reveals the yellow triangle bikini top which you can display as much or as little as you want. “I loved the checkerboard details on the sleeves and the included faux belt,” Allison added.

Perfect for a costume party or a trip to the race track, the Speed Demon racer costume is fun to dress-up with added accessories. Allison recommended adding your favorite fishnet pantyhose followed by, “The fishnets looked hot!” For those worried about finding the right size, you will be happy to know that the fit of the curve-hugging costume was true to size! 

The racer girl photoshoot itself was epic and everyone had so much fun working together. Photographer Tim Vo’s favorite part of the shoot was the bikes. “The other thing I like photographing when I’m not shooting for TotallyCostumes.com is motorcycle or car racing action.” He has a need for speed, too! “Everything came together really well for this. Allison was a great to work with and, as usual, was absolutely fearless.” He added that the image ‘Built of Speed’ was his favorite. “Everything is so perfect – the lighting, her look, the pose.” 

You WISH you rode like a girl – Racer Costume

Tim Vo, Allison and all of us at TotallyCostumes.com are extremely thankful to Andy at Asylum Motorcycles for letting us use their facility and providing bikes and personnel. Tim Vo threw out a special thanks to Howard for assisting throughout the shoot. Allison added, “Howard at Asylum Motorcycles was helped me with my costume as well as demonstrated and helped me pose!” 

I would like to close this post with a mention that I am happy to see a growing number of women motorcycle riders. I think most everyone will agree that there is almost nothing better than seeing girls on motorcycles. Show your support for the sport at the next costume event or trip to the track by wearing a sexy racer girl costume. Our pick would be the speed demon due to its form fitting features, checkerboard details and the character it stands for.

Spotlight: Sexy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Costume

I Love Being A Turtle - TMNT Raphael Costume

Character: Raphael Sexy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Costume
Costume Accessories: Ninja Turtle Sais, Red Opaque Thigh High Stockings, Red Mary Jane Shoes, Curly Red Party Wig

I don’t live in the storm sewers of New York City, although I hear it is prime real estate, and I wasn’t trained by an anthropomorphic rat sensei, but I just had to try on the Sexy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Costume as soon as I saw it arrived. You have Leonardo the courageous leader, easy-going and free-spirited Michelangelo and Donatello the technological genius. BUT – my choice pick was Raphael the team’s bad boy. The intense and rebellious nature of this TMNT is always one to grab a girl’s attention. Raphael was always one to kick butt and take names later.

I grabbed the red mask and wielded a pair of Sais for my moment in ninja turtle glory! The glossy, metallic green material really made this costume an eye-catcher for me.

Beware of Ninja Kick - Sexy Ninja Turtle Costume

The Sexy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Costume includes a curve-hugging mini halter dress featuring a red ninja belt sash, turtle graphic detailing along the torso and a layered ruffle skirt. A matching turtle shell backpack, wrist bands and red eye mask complete this martial arts super hero ensemble!

Because the model advertising the costume wore thigh high red boots, I decided to try something a bit different. I added our red opaque thigh high stockings and red Mary Jane shoes to create a similar look and topped it off with a curly red wig for a fun twist.

So if you are looking for a comic book super hero favorite this Halloween, try on this sexy Ninja Turtle costume for the ladies! Remember the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series in the late 1980s and early 1990s? I’ve just learned that a third animated series will be released by Nickelodeon in a television show that will premiere in 2012. A new feature film is also in the works in a co-production between Paramount and Nickelodeon. So we can enjoy more crime fighting adventures of our TMNT heroes in the near future.

Let’s break for some pizza! Mmm…. KOWABUNGA!!

Spotlight: Sexy Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts Costume

September 1, 2010

Off With Your Head! - Mad Hatter & Queen of Hearts Costume

Character: Enchanting Queen of Hearts Adult Costume
Accessories Shown: Queen of Hearts Cuffs, Gold & Red Mardi Gras Fan Mask, Red Mary Jane Shoes, Red Queen Velvet Lady Wig, Fishnet Backseam Pantyhose

Character: Sexy Tea Party Tease Adult Costume
Accessories Shown: Tea Party Tease boot tops, sexy black pirate boots, mad hatter madness wig, teardrop petticoat

Once upon a time in the world of Wonderland….  Actually, let’s start this over. Deep in the heart of Underland lives plenty of peculiar characters. This place is a whimsical world of nonsense where your journey will continue to get curiouser and curiouser with each passing moment. You will encounter a short-tempered and tyrannical queen trying to rule such an uncontrollable place. You are sure to run into the emotionally unstable and hyper-nutty Mad Hatter who keeps things light-hearted and unexpected. Other inhabitants include the two identical little fat men Tweedledee and Tweedledum who finish eachother’s sentences in rhymes. Chessur the Cheshire Cat is sure to shape-shift into sight to show his seductive tabby grin and leave you alone after he evaporates into the dark.

Mad as a Hatter - Tea Party Tease Costume

Okay, enough with the word play. I had some cosplay fun this past weekend with our Alice in Wonderland costumes walking in the shoes (or should I say boots) of the maddest of hatters. To top things off, I was in the company of the most regal of queens in red. My Tea Party Tease costume let me take on the appearance of a sexy female version of the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland accompanied by the elegance of a regal woman in the Enchanting Queen of Hearts costume. Both high quality Alice in Wonderland costume sets are from Roma costumes and perfect for you next party and Halloween event.

The Tea Party Tease costume I wore consisted of a beautiful crop jacket, black velvet mini skirt, bow tie choker and a matching Mad Hatter style top hat. The black satin torso had a front hook and eye closure and puffy shoulder sleeves. This sexy Mad Hatter costume was such high quality and surpassed my expectations when I first saw it. Just seeing the Tea Party Tease Mad Hatter costume at a glance in the packaging you are able to see that this is one nice costume. I added a teardrop petticoat to add some fluff and frills to the skirt. I think the sexy black pirate boots with the matching Tea Party Tease boot covers really added to the costume. And the mad hatter madness wig from Forever Young was the icing on the cake. That wig truly finished the costume.

Her Majesty of Underland - Red Queen Wig

The Enchanting Queen of Hearts costume exceeded my expectations in quality, material and fit. You will fall in love the high quality look of the black velvet halter top and skirt trimmed with a white quilted material. Three large hearts span vertically up the torso for a signature heart breaking look for the Red Queen. This is a great look for a Valentine’s Day, a regal queen or an Alice in Wonderland queen of hearts costume. The costume accessories offered endless options for this Alice in Wonderland classic character. We decided on the Queen of Hearts Cuffs to wear as bracelets around the wrists, red Mary Jane style shoes, fishnet pantyhose and a beautiful Red Queen Velvet Lady Wig. Let me stop to comment on this Forever Young wig for a quick second. The bright red curls, design, shape and quality of this wig is also out of this world. I highly recommend this Red Queen wig for any Queen of Hearts costume looking for fashionably modern and stylish direction. Forever Young wigs have out-done themselves with this one! We ended the photoshoot with trying on the Gold & Red Mardi Gras Fan Mask. Wow! This really drew attention to the face and helped give the larger-than-life appearance to the Red Queen costume for a 2010 Alice in Wonderland character straight out of the Tim Burton film.

A mix between the classic storybook fairy tale, timeless characters and the new 2010 film by Tim Burton, Alice in Wonderland costumes are sure to be one of my favorite themes for this year’s Halloween parties. A whole crew of new friends and revamps of Alice Kingsley, the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen (Queen of Hearts), her sister the White Queen,  Chessur the grey and blue Cheshire Cat, Tweedle Dee and Dum, Absolum the Caterpillar make up the wondrous world of Wonderland. Take a look at all of our Alice in Wonderland costumes from both the Disney classic cartoon and the new Tim Burton movie.
