Thanksgiving Costumes: Traditions with a Fun, Festive Twist

November 9, 2011

Thanksgiving is around the corner and families will continue old traditions and begin new ones. Some of the favorite Thanksgiving traditions include eating of Thanksgiving Feast, participating in breaking the turkey’s wishbone and giving thanks around the table. Sports fans usually enjoy an eventful game of football, too! Make this year one to remember by spicing up your old Thanksgiving traditions with a new twist. Thanksgiving costumes can really bring a festive feel to your dinner table while bringing the holiday’s beginnings to the present. The entire family can dress in an assortment of traditional Pilgrim costumes and Native American Indian costumes to bring the first Thanksgiving Day to life.

Our selection of Pilgrim costumes is available for men, women, boys and girls. Inspired by colonial wardrobe styles of the 17th century, early American settler costumes for males will include a brown, gray or black long-sleeved top with white cuffs, white round collar, cropped pants and a belt. The colonial pilgrim costumes for females will generally include a long sleeved black, brown or gray dress with white cuffs, long white apron, round white collar and a classic prairie bonnet. It brings an authentic pioneer appearance to bring the harvest season to life. For the crafty ladies looking for a DIY Pilgrim Costume, try out our Women’s Pilgrim Costume Kit. It includes the white prairie bonnet, apron, wrist cuffs and white round collar.

Be sure that part of the family also dresses in Native American Indian costumes to complete the scene. With so many different styles, there is something for everyone in the family. Men and boys can choose from Indian Warrior, Native American Brave, Tribe Chief and Cherokee Warrior costumes. They generally include a faux suede or faux buckskin top and pants with fringe accents. Other Native American Indian accessories can enhance a costume such as a long black wig, feather headdress, tomahawk, bow with arrows and moccasins. Women and girls can choose from a variety of Indian Princess, Native American Girl and Tiger Lily costume styles.

If you are looking to bring a more comical presence to your Thanksgiving celebration, try a turkey costume. We carry a few different Turkey Costumes for adults and kids. The Turkey Costume is easily recognizable with its brown, soft fleece jumpsuit, yellow beak with red gizzard, and the colorful turkey tail feathers. Start out the festivities with your best ‘Gobble, gobble!’

If you aren’t looking to don the full Thanksgiving costume as a turkey, pilgrim or Native American Indian, enhance your everyday wear with a festive costume accessory. We carry a large selection of more traditional Thanksgiving costume accessories such as the Native American Indian Headdress, deluxe pilgrim hat, Indian headband with braids, colonial bonnet, pilgrim costume kits, Native American costume jewelry, pilgrim shoe covers and moccasins to name a few. To bring more humor to the table, try our fun and festive Turkey Gobbler Hat, Plush Turkey Puppet Hat, Turkey Neck Tie, Drumstick Bopper headband, Stuffed Turkey Mask Hat, Pilgrim Turkey Headband or a Turkey Costume Purse. You can be as creative and festive as you like when enhancing your everyday wardrobe with Thanksgiving flare.

Spotlight: Sexy Aphrodite Greek Goddess Costume

February 11, 2011

Character: Sexy Aphrodite Greek Goddess Costume
Accessories: Lady Roman Sandals , Gold Laurel Wreath , Gold Roman Arm Cuff

Model: Ashley Roa
Photographer: Tim Vo
Location: Fullerton, CA

The Ides of March comes around every year on the 15th of March in the Roman calendar. It was a festive day full of celebration dedicated to the god Mars. But today it is better known as the date that Julius Caesar was killed by the Roman Senate. March 15th was a bad day for Julius Caesar, but a great way for us to have fun in costume at a Toga Party! Guests come to party dressed in Roman toga costumes to become citizens of Rome for an evening whether it is of the Animal House variety or a more classical “Hail Caesar” style.

With the growing popularity of Roman toga costumes and Greek costumes, I wanted to spotlight one of our sexy Greek Goddess costumes. Photographer Tim Vo and model Ashley Roa captured Grecian beauty in our Sexy Aphrodite Greek Goddess Costume. Mythology has never looked so good. Our sexy Greek Goddess costume is sure to get you in the mood for love or lust at the next Toga party. It includes a white ruffle-hem mini dress trimmed in metallic ribbon and chain detail with tiered skirt and delicate chiffon sleevelets. Both Tim and Ashley agree that you are sure to make an entrance in this sexy Greek Goddess costume.

The sexy Greek Goddess costume really came together with the Greek goddess costume accessories. We added our Lady Roman Sandals, Gold Laurel Wreath headpiece and a Gold Roman Arm Cuff to achieve a goddess appearance worth of Ancient Greece. Greek goddesses are fun to accessorize with the gold contrasting the pure white Greek costumes and the strappy sandals wrapping up the calves.

The Greek costumes are generally white gowns or toga robes wrapped around the body in either a classic style or in a modern twist. The accessories for a Greek goddess or Roman toga costume should be gold in color to accent the costume in a more traditional manner. Doing a little research into the history of your Roman citizen or Greek Goddess for the Toga costume party makes the process more fun and gives you a great conversation piece. Grecian women most commonly have wavy, brunette hair making a Costume Wig another great addition to really complete your costume.
