Easter Bunny Costumes

The really nice party costumes have been designed for the bonsai population – yes, the children. Do something extra special by sending out anonymous greetings to your well wishers as well an individual you wouldn’t otherwise talk to. You could also send out Easter greetings to soldiers, religious heads, or even someone in nursing homes.  Easter Bunny costumes can be part of this.

We were smart kids – we recognized them in costume, but we loved that they were playing make believe with us. We also enjoyed the fact that they would give us delightful chocolate Easter bunnies when they were in costume!

The exact origins of the Easter Bunny aka Peter Cottontail, are buried in obscurity but the connection to the Easter holiday appears to lie in the fact that the rabbit is an ancient symbol of fertility and the creation of life.

The best thing about Easter is that one minute your kids can be cuddling up with the Easter Bunny and another minute your wife can be thrown on the floor and held in a choke hold (in a bad way) – all on sacred mall grounds.

There have been a few strange incidents involving the Easter as well as the pleasantries.   At a mall, Bunny Frechette punched a gentleman by the name of Johansson in the face which then prompted McClure, the Easter Bunny (“you might know me from mall fights as…”), to take off his Easter Bunny head (the Easter Bunny decapitated himself kids!) and sock it to Johansson himself.

And another….Luckily for the bank, and unfortunately for our costumed friends, the staff members at the office were able to activate a security door and block the guys from entry all while the blue bunny robber had to stand there in his bunny costume, waiting to be arrested for a robbery that ended way before it began.

K-mart visitors in Manhattan were given a treat  when 28-year-old Amy Hamilton-Thibert dressed up as an Easter Bunny while protesting the military-themed Easter baskets sold at the chain store because in this economy, not everyone has a job.

She stood inside the store wearing a lilac sweater with cellophane grass, white pants, plush slippers, a stuffed cottontail and white rabbit ears, all while carrying a sign that read “Someone’s in my Easter basket…and it’s G.I. Joe!!” She explained to children who approached her that, “Guns are for war and killing people.

Leprechaun Halloween Costumes

The best part of St. Patrick’s Day is that you don’t have to be Irish to participate. Other examples of secular holidays or celebrations where fancy dress are commonly used to portray specific characters would include; Valentines Day (Cupid or Eros) and US Independence Day (Uncle Sam).  Today is nearing the last day to order your Leprechaun Halloween Costumes.  Okay, so it’s not really a Halloween costume.

On the other hand, while local retailers will have a good basic selection of costumes, accessories and a few props, they just can’t compete with the vast selection you’ll get with online costumes shops.

Although there are a handful of Irish fancy gown costumes that can be worn at Halloween, it is typically the form of costume that we would affiliate with the 17th March, in the kind of the St. Patrick’s Day outfit.

The classic Leprechaun costume clearly make a excellent St. Patrick’s Day outfit, but if you are seeking for a more sinister searching outfit for Halloween, then you can not get considerably greater than the Leprechaun outfit based mostly all around the character from the 1983 horror movie, Leprechaun.

Over the next thirty-five years, Irish patriotism among American immigrants flourished, prompting the rise of so-called “Irish Aid” societies, like the Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick and the Hibernian Society.

In 1948, President Truman attended New York City ‘s St. Patrick’s Day parade, a proud moment for the many Irish whose ancestors had to fight stereotypes and racial prejudice to find acceptance in America.

In fact, up until the 1970s, Irish laws mandated that pubs be closed on March 17. Beginning in 1995, however, the Irish government began a national campaign to use St. Patrick’s Day as an opportunity to drive tourism and showcase Ireland to the rest of the world.

In recent times, the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Dublin have been extended to a week-long event called St. Patrick’s Festival, encompassing a spectacular fireworks display (Skyfest), open-air music, street theater and the traditional parade.

It’s Cinderella Day

Today is the opening of Disney’s Cinderella.  It’s Cinderella day.

As you may have noticed, in the last few years, famous movie costumes have become a popular outfit for little ones to wear in society. The most appreciated fairytale costumes are those inspired from the famous stories which have made the winter nights warmer and have fascinated many generations of little girls: Snow White costumes, Cinderella costumes, The Sleeping Beauty costumes as well as many princess costumes.

As a result, getting through your child’s trick or treating years without Beauty and the Beast costumes is unlikely, therefore you might as well make the entire thing a special event and view the movie once again.

Given the success of this movie, along with all the merchandising and toys that were created as companion advertising pieces, it stands to reason that this movie might just inspire one of the more popular Disney Halloween costumes this year.

Since Belle could win any knowledge bowl, you could play a trivia game about France or for younger kids you could ask simple questions about the movie Beauty and the Beast and the person who gets the most questions right gets a princess prize.

Costume Designer Sandy Powell was recently quoted that the film is quite the departure from her recent work with Martin Scorsese on ‘mans-man films’ and the new Cinderella adaptation is her own chance to present a look for a ‘girls-girl film’.

It is amazing what this make believe time can do for little minds as they grow and indeed a sad day when they no longer think it important and that Cinderella dress floats to the floor to be found years later tucked away and forgotten.

No children’s party is truly complete with kids dressed up in costumes of at least some Disney characters, as the opportunity to dress up like some of their favorite comic book and animation characters is simply irresistible for kids.
