Spotlight: Wicked Red Riding Hood Costume

January 25, 2011

Character: Wicked Red Riding Hood Sexy Costume
Accessories: Fishnet Thigh Highs with Backseam , Traditional Lace Petticoat

Model: Lillian Eakes
Photographer: Tim Vo
Location: Orange County, CA

With the release of the new live-action fairy tale Red Riding Hood on March 11, 2011, we decided it would be the perfect opportunity to share an exclusive photo shoot we did of our Wicked Red Riding Hood Costume from the sexy line of Be Wicked Costumes. Photographer Tim Vo and model Lillian Eakes brought a saucy new sex appeal to a fairytale classic character, Litte Red Riding Hood. Through our exclusive photo shoot collection it looks as though the not-so-innocent Lil Red is exploring the forest in search of the Big Bad Wolf. Temptation is at his door with this sexy Little Red Riding Hood costume.

Our sexy Red Riding Hood Costume from Be Wicked includes a stretch lycra mini dress, black waist cincher laced with red ribbon and a red hooded shoulder cape. The sexy Red Riding Hood dress features a sweetheart bust line and thin tank straps. The signature red hooded cape fastens in the front with a red ribbon. For costume accessories, Lillian added fishnet thigh high stockings, black heel pumps and our Traditional Lace White Petticoat.

The vibrant red colors of the Wicked Red Riding Hood costume contrast beautifully amongst the lavish, wooded landscape. Lil red seems to be watching and waiting. Perhaps even tempting the Big Bad Wolf in her sexy new costume. This caped cutie certainly doesn’t seem to be just on a journey to grandmother’s house. She looks perplexed, possibly about her intentions of wandering out into the woods again.

There has been a lot of hype about the gothic twist on the Brothers Grimm fairy tail, Red Riding Hood. Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company picked up the rights with “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke signing on to direct. Amanda Seyfried will don the cape for Red Riding Hood in this dark retelling of the famous children’s tale. As described in our previous post, the drama thriller Red Riding Hood is set in a medieval village that is haunted by a werewolf. Here is the second trailer that was released last Thursday for the Red Riding Hood movie starring Amanda Seyfried, Shiloh Fernandez and Gary Oldman.

Spotlight: Buccaneer Babe Sexy Pirate Costume

January 17, 2011

Character: Buccaneer Babe Sexy Pirate Costume
Accessories: Buccaneer Boot Top Covers, Jack Sparrow Pirate Sword Toy Weapon, Pirate Hat with Ribbons, Pirate Head Scarf

Model: Nikki Neither
Photographer: Tim Vo
Location: Long Beach, CA

It is snowing here in the Colorado Mountains and, although I enjoy a good snow storm, I started thinking about warm beaches and tropical scenery. So for those of us with spring fever, I wanted to share our most recent exclusive costume photo shoot. From the sandy beaches of Long Beach California, photographer Tim Vo captured the beauty of model Nikki Neither in our Buccaneer Babe sexy pirate costume from Leg Avenue! Nothing says fun and family friendly adventure like dress-up in a pirate Halloween costume!

The Buccaneer Babe sexy pirate costume from Leg Avenue includes a pirate dress featuring a sexy velvet waist coat corset-style bodice, attached red off-the-shoulder ruffled blouse with jagged cut sleeves, lurex ribbon trim, attached black waist sash with buckle detail and red and black striped skirt with a jagged cut hem. We accessorized this Leg Avenue sexy pirate costume with rustic looking pirate boot covers, a high-fashion pirate hat with matching gold trim and red ribbons and a toy pirate sword to ensure a swashbuckling good time! What we got was a scurvy speaking and sexy looking pirate lass ready for an adventure!

With pirate festivals growing in popularity in the recent years and the pirate-themed events at Renaissance Faires, a sexy pirate costume can be worn more than once after Halloween! Pirates from all over the gold coast are sure to appreciate the invasion of sexy pirate costumes to any of their events. Just because a lot of us are landlocked landlubbers doesn’t mean we don’t like to party like pirates on more than one occasion either. Nikki stated she plans on wearing the Buccaneer Babe sexy pirate costume to the next Renaissance Faire in October.

Nikki really loved the fit of the sexy pirate costume. She felt the ruffles in the blouse really complimented her bust and added that her favorite feature on the costume was the large waist sash that layered across the striped skirt because it added layers making it seem more complex and realistic. “The hat and boots absolutely completed this sexy pirate costume,” Nikki stated. So make sure you create your own unique buccaneer look by adding some pirate costume accessories for added character. “This pirate costume brought out a sexy pirate buccaneer mood. It was great! I felt sexy, fresh and tough… and fearless which was the best of all!”

I asked her if she struck fear into the hearts of the villagers in Long Beach, CA. She laughed in response and said that no one was afraid of her. Even all the little kids wanted their pictures done with her. “The funniest thing that happened on the set was the grins people kept making at me. Everyone who saw me wanted to get their picture taken next to me,” she said. And who could blame them? There was a real pirate on the beach and that is not something you get to see everyday!!

With the new Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides movie being released in May 2011, a pirate costume should be in order for your trip to the theater! Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and Barbossa embark on a quest to find the elusive fount of youth, only to discover that Blackbeard and his daughter are after it, too!  Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past. And who won’t enjoy the performance of Blackbeard’s daughter, Angelica, who is played by Penelope Cruz who wears a variety of sexy pirate costumes! Pirates of the Caribbean 4 has everything from pirates to zombies to mermaids! This will give all of us the opportunity to pair a Jack Sparrow costume with a sexy pirate costume for a great couple’s costume idea this Halloween!

So whether you are adventuring out to Pirate Festivals, dressing up at a Renaissance Faire or are simply dreaming of warmer climates, our selection of pirate costumes include styles for men, women, kids, toddlers and babies from petite to plus size.
