Costume Spotlight: Hot Rod Pin-Up Girl Photos

July 19, 2011

Character: Velvet Cheetah Costume
Accessories: Net Backseamed Pantyhose, Auburn Red Pin-Up Girl Wig

Model: Nova
Location: Rob’s Hot Rod Garage

Take a flash back with us to the 1940s and 1950s when fashion was an art form and the silhouette was the hourglass. The 40s and 50s pinup models were known for their tasteful yet alluring outfits with an aesthetic that embodied style and sophistication. Also known as cheesecake girls, they were both sexually alluring and slightly innocent and coquettish. Modern pinup girls continue to be immensely popular with hot rods and custom cars so we decided to spotlight vintage inspired fashion alongside some freaking awesome cars. Lucky for us, we had the opportunity to drool over some beautiful lines in Rob’s Hot Rod Garage – a 1933 Plymouth Coupe and a 1929 Ford Model A Roadster.

We chose the sexy Velvet Cheetah Pin-Up Costume from our new 2011 costume collection. This seductive and sexy Velvet Cheetah costume proved to be the cat’s meow for our hot rod pin-up girl theme. The Velvet Cheetah Pin-Up Costume includes a velveteen leopard print mini dress with an attached cat tail and belt with round jeweled buckle, elbow-length glovelettes and a headband with ears. It really brings out the wild animal within so I was able to let my feline prowess shine next to those sweet hot rods! This sexy pin-up girl costume combines the sweet with the sultry in leopard print and stretches to hug all your curves. I loved how it combined the 1950s pinup with a modern twist. The deep-V gathered bodice compliments any bust size for an unapologetic femme fatale.

The essence of the hot rod pin-up girls was captured nicely by our photographer in the photoshoot. “The sexy backseam pantyhose following those long legs, the curve hugging leopard print dress, the perfect seducing face of the model with those hotrod red lips that scream pin-up, the flirting position of the poses on the hot rod car, that hand resting on those sexy hips… the pictures really capture what modern pin-up is all about,” our photographer exclaimed after the pin-up girl photoshoot with the hot rod cars. She added, “My favorite feature on the pin-up girl costume was the plunging V-neck with a halter strap that flirts with the neck and the ruched front. I also love the BOLD leopard print!”

Pin-up girls and custom hot rod cars go together like yen and yang. This is probably because it is all about the curves. The curves of the pin-up girl compliment the curves on the car. The attitude a pin-up girl has with the car can really convey a true scene. And I admit, I really felt the attitude of the 1933 Plymouth Coupe and the 1929 Ford Model A Roadster in that garage. Those hot rods really set the vintage pin-up mood on fire for both myself and the photographer. With a wicked cool backdrop and the vintage inspired Velvet Cheetah Costume, I am happy to share with you our hot rod pin-up girl photos from the shoot!

Spotlight: Sexy French Maid Costume

July 9, 2011

Character: French Kiss Maid Costume

Model: Heather
Photographer: Janae Peterson
Location: The Pridy House

Bonjour! We decided to spotlight a sexy ensemble that is timeless in the world of dress-up! So without further ado, I am happy to spotlight our sexy French maid costume photoshoot. The Deluxe French Kiss Maid Costume by California Costume is part of the Eye Candy collection and certainly ranks up there with the best of sexy Halloween costumes. Janae stated that not only was the model so much fun to work with and the setting of the Pridy House so beautiful, but that the sexy French Maid costume was great to work with.

The sexy French Kiss Maid Costume includes a black mini dress with an attached off-the-shoulder ruffled sleeves, attached white apron with black lace overlaid white bows and a matching black and white French Maid headpiece. The sexy French Maid dress features a white insert over the torso with a black lace overlay, three crystallized-looking black buttons and a black bow over the chest. The sexy French Maid costume gives plenty of attitude with the wide shoulder straps and attached off-the-shoulder puff sleeves. The puff sleeves feature a white lace overlay and the elastic armbands offer a nice fit for different sized arms. The attached white apron ties into a large bow in the back and ruched sections on both sides give it the ultimate French Maid look.

Heather mentioned that it was comfortable to wear and easy to slip on since there is no zipping or buttoning required. She added, “It looks very sexy and you will definitely make your ‘monsieur’ a happy one!”

The sexy Halloween costume doesn’t stop there! Janae added the White Traditional Lace Petticoat byLeg Avenuefor a more frilly and full skirt appearance. She said it certainly wouldn’t look complete without it! The black Net Backseamed Pantyhose byLeg Avenue was used for the hosiery choice. Made of lycra industrial net, the stretchy fishnet pantyhose with backseam really sets the sizzling hot French Maid costume on fire! Of course, Janae topped it all off with a French Maid Feather Duster accessory prop!

Dust away the competition at any party with our sexy French Kiss Maid costume.

Spotlight: Little Pig Infant Costume

July 2, 2011

Character: Baby Pig Costume

Model: Eli
Photographer: Janae Peterson
Location: MontroseCO

That little piggie went to the market, but this little piggie stayed home and enjoyed dress-up play! And he enjoyed it just as much as we did! As we all know, dress-up role play is a great method of encouraging imaginative play with your child. And what better way to do it than with vibrant colors and farm animals?

We decided to do our next costume photoshoot with a farm animal costume since it is summer and spending a day on the farm sounded like fun. Eli was dressed in our Little Pig Infant Costume from Charades while photographer Janae Peterson worked her magic. We both agree that this is one of the cutest kids’ Halloween costumes we have seen in a while and those pudgy baby cheeks inside of it made it all the more charming.

The baby pig costume is made of pink micro fiber and was easy for Eli to move around in since the material was thin. It didn’t frustrate him like the fluffier and thick baby Halloween costumes have in the past. There was nothing to irritate the skin on the inside since the fabric was so extremely soft. There were plastic snap buttons on the inner legs to make for convenient diaper changes. A pair of footsies are included that are designed to look like cloven pig hoofs.

When asking Janae about her favorite part of the baby pig costume, she thought it was the amount of detail mentioning that the costume flaunted a curly pig tail and that the pig hood couldn’t get any cuter with the pink leather-like patches inside the ears, googly eyes that move, soft plush pig snout and a secure fit with neck tie closures. She suggests wearing clothes underneath for colder Halloween nights since the material of the baby pig costume is thinner and won’t keep your infant warm as it is for dress-up.

We enjoyed watching Eli play in the baby pig Halloween costume photoshoot and we know you will, too! The nice think about this farm animal costume is that you don’t have to have a farm or a ranch to enjoy this adorable piglet! Go hog wild this Halloween and enjoy dress-up play with your infant through the magic of costume!

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.

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. Shop our selection of pirate costumes, sexy pirate costumes, pirate costume wigs and pirate costume accessories.

Season’s Greetings from all of us at TotallyCostumes.com! I simply love the holidays and all that it brings! The smell of hot apple cider, the warmth of the fireplace, a view of my mountain town covered in a blanket of snow and the sight of a decorated Christmas tree! I decided it was necessary for us to share a holiday photoshoot with everyone so you can feel the warmth of the holiday spirit! We have so many Christmas costumes here at TotallyCostumes.com that it was hard for me to choose just one, but with too many clicks to mention I decided on a very sexy Christmas tree costume. Of course, Orange County photographer Tim Vo and model Melissa really pulled this one off!

The Oh XXXMas Tree costume is a sexy Christmas and holiday dress that really will add an extra spark to your winter season. It is a high quality panne velvet halter style mini dress featuring a Velcro neck with removable tinsel and ornaments. The Christmas tree inspired hemline is trimmed in colored lights and present prints. This sexy Christmas tree dress is the perfect costume for holiday parties or Christmas night. We accessorized the sexy Christmas tree costume with a pair of white opaque thigh high stockings and dazzling red high heels.

Melissa wore the sexy Christmas tree costume extremely well. I love how edgy she looks in it. Sharp! I asked Tim Vo what he was trying to capture in this holiday picture shoot and he responded, “A bit of sexy, mischievous and fun because that is how the holidays should be!” I certainly couldn’t agree more! Click here to view his favorite picture from the Christmas costume shoot. He loves how beautiful the Christmas tree looks in this shot.

What is your favorite part about the holidays? Aside from snow and fireplaces, I really love the chance of eating a wonderful Christmas dinner with a large table of family. Tim Vo shares his is “Getting gifts for all the kids and seeing their joy when they open them.” Yeah, way to one-up me, Tim!  😉
