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.

Lady Gaga Costumes for Little Monster Fans

August 29, 2011

Lady Gaga costumes, wigs and accessories at TotallyCostumes.com

The latest line of officially licensed Lady Gaga costumes, wigs and accessories for 2011 have recently been introduced on TotallyCostumes.com. You will find a selection of the celebrity inspired outfit designs from the Judas and Born this Way music videos and live performances.

Lady Gaga continues to raise the bar and set new standards with her music and costumes. She has taken the music industry by storm with her ever-changing sense of style in music, fashion, performance and music videos. While pushing the boundaries with her eccentric fashion sense, Lady Gaga’s costumes have brought performance art into mainstream. Now with the new selection of Lady Gaga Costumes from TotallyCostumes.com, little monster fans can change the world one sequin at a time!

New for 2011, the Lady Gaga Skeleton Tuxedo Costume was designed after the outfit she wore during her Michael Jackson impression in the Born this Way music video. The Lady Gaga Skeleton Tuxedo Costume features a black jacket with strong power shoulders, white tuxedo shirt front, black bow tie and black trouser pants with flared leg. Designed to mimic the tuxedo outfit worn during the dancing skeleton scene of the provocative Born This Way music video, the Lady Gaga Tuxedo Costume is quickly proving to be a favorite.

The Lady Gaga 2011 Gold Grammy Costume includes a metallic gold fabric cropped top, matching long sheer chiffon jacket, mini skirt with long sheer chiffon overlay skirt and an oversized wide brim sun hat. It was designed after the 2011 Grammy Awards outfit that the pop princess wore when breaking out of an egg to perform Born This Way. The Lady Gaga 2011 Gold Grammy Costume is a sexy midriff bearing outfit that fans can use to show friends they were just ‘Born this Way’!

Our selection of Lady Gaga costumes continues to grow. A few of the other outfits include the Blue Swim Suit from Poker Face, American Flag Bikini outfit from Telephone, Black Sequin Asymmetrical Dress from her Fame Monster Tour performances, Prisoner Dress from Telephone and a 2-piece White Outfit from her VMA Awards Paparazzi performance. I believe we can only expect to add more Lady Gaga costumes to our selection with the continued success of Lady Gaga and her eccentric, jaw-dropping costumes.

There have been a variety of new Lady Gaga Wigs that have been released for 2011 as well. The hairstyles include those from performances, music videos and VMA Awards. I believe one of the most popular for 2011 will be the Lady Gaga Side Ponytail Wig from her skeleton dancing scene in the Born this Way music video. Other new styles include the Biker Wig with Bandana from the Judas video, Yellow Tour Wig and a two-tone black and blonde wig. These new Lady Gaga accessories have been added to our existing selection of officially licensed hair bow clips, lightning bolt make-up kit, wrist gloves, GAGA sunglasses and head scarves to enhance Lady Gaga costumes with all the small details.

With plenty of retro pin-up glamour, the Katy Perry California Gurl Cupcake Costume is fun and flirty.

The Katy Perry Whipped Cream Costume includes a cherry red bra top featuring attached and working whipped cream can dispensers and matching red sequin booty shorts with attached garter. The working whipped cream cans shoot silly string so you can make a big BANG at your next party!

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!
