Buying a New Santa Costume?

Buying a New Santa Costume?

It’s early, I know.  

But it might be time to start thinking about your new SANTA COSTUME. The old one is getting frayed at the edges and it’s obviously seen way too many chimneys. Hmmm…is that a crumb? And what about that stain? Are they the remains of a cookie and spilled milk from a Christmas past?

All new Santa outfits should include a jacket, pants, and a hat; as well as a belt and boot tops (fake boots ala boot covers).  A wig and beard may or may not be included with the costume.

Santa costumes are available at our AMAZON COSTUME STORE (click tab below banner)

The cost of the suits will vary considerably due to the quality of the fabric and trimming.  If a wig and beard are included, that too will be a factor.  Cloth suits are usually quite inexpensive, and of course, the plush suits are quite pricey, comparatively speaking. The quality of the white trim around the collar, down the front and on the bottom of the sleeves will also help dictate the price. 

You’re on a budget, you say?   As a lifetime professional costumer, I suggest that you buy the absolute best quality Santa beard and wig that you can afford, and the least priced suit; if money is an issue.  A good Santa wig and beard will enhance a lesser quality suit; while a cheap wig and beard will substantially diminish the appearance of a good suit.  You can always upgrade the suit in a number of ways at a later time.

Children will be looking at the hair and beard, not the suit; if they are looking at all. What are the attributes of a good Santa outfit and Santa beard and wig? Stay tuned, boys and girls.   

More to Follow!!

Note that Santa suits usually DO NOT include the wig and beard nor other accessories like glasses, gloves, etc.  These suits are in the middle of the price scale….while others are higher and still others are less.

Thanksgiving Day Costumes

Thanksgiving Day Costumes

Pilgrim costumes are important to Americans, as they were the clothing worn by our ancestors when they participated in the first Thanksgiving celebration with the Native Americans in the region they settled. My wife always wears a sexy pilgrim costume for me when we heat up left-overs. She also wears this outfit on other occasions as well not to be mentioned here. Having some sexy costumes on hand make a dull occasion, a fun occasion. 

Women’s Pilgrim Costumes are true to the authentic style of Pilgrim clothing. The ladies pilgrim dresses featured a long black dress with long wide sleeves. It may be simple, but the look of it instantly puts you in the mood for turkey.

Men’s Pilgrim Costumes are also an accurate example of early settler’s wardrobe. The men’s costume features a black jacket with a white collar and cuffs, black pants, white socks and a pilgrim hat.

 

The most obvious and most popular Thanksgiving costume for adults is the turkey Thanksgiving costume and this will certainly get the party going and spice up the dinner table atmosphere if you dress up in one of these!

There are also a selection of Thanksgiving costumes for kids that reflect the history of the reason for the Thanksgiving celebrations; and Thanksgiving outfits for toddlers that are really cute.

Pilgrim Costumes for Thanksgiving 

Pilgrim costumes are essential for every school’s Thanksgiving celebration and reenactment. Baby thanksgiving costumes are cute and fun. Around the holiday season, I notice so many babies that are dressed up in holiday costumes.

Women’s Pilgrim Costumes are true to the authentic style of Pilgrim clothing. The ladies pilgrim dresses featured a long black dress with long wide sleeves. It may be simple but the look of it instantly puts you in the mood for turkey.

Men’s Pilgrim Costumes are also an accurate example of early settler’s wardrobe. The men’s costume features a black jacket with a white collar and cuffs, black pants, white socks and a pilgrim hat. Most Pilgrim costumes come with everything except the shoes which are sold separately. Whether worn by adults or children, Pilgrim costumes can make Thanksgiving a whole new experience.

Last Thanksgiving I saw babies dressed up as fruits and vegetables at the mall. Given the traditional focus of Thanksgiving, there are always costumes available online that you can purchase. I selected a few of the cutest costumes available to help make your decision a lot easier. There are a few classic costumes that I think are worth considering for your babyâs thanksgiving costume. I do have to admit those babies did look cute. It was a few days before Thanksgiving but the babies were still dressed up in their attire. As we all know, babies have a mind of their own. All the costumes on this page are cute but some of them seem a little more comfortable than others. Baby costumes are usually made with comfort in mind. The designers know that babies often move around so they build the costumes to provide plenty of wiggle room.

Thanksgiving Costume Party?

If you are thinking of injecting some fun into your thanksgiving celebrations, then what better way than to have some or all of your guests dress up – or maybe just the host to dress up in a Thanksgiving Costume! Baby costumes are usually made with comfort in mind. The designers know that babies often move around so they build the costumes to provide plenty of wiggle room. The turkey is so crucial to Thanksgiving that I would be remiss if I did not feature at least one costume with iconic bird. Plus, the little arms of the outfit make it look like the baby has wings with orange feathers! This turkey is my favorite Thanksgiving costume because it is so vivid.

By dressing up to the festivity one gives importance to the history of the land and it insures that the custom lives on. You have on both traditional Thanksgiving costumes or the well-known among kids’ turkey dresses – the only way to live up to the Holiday spirit is by celebrating it by wearing the appropriate costume. Pilgrim Costume Dress for Ladies.

You can just purchase or make a plain black dress or pants and a shirt for your pilgrim costume. Perfect attire for the pilgrim colonial look.

Stage and Theatre Makeup! For Christmas and All Year Round!

Stage and Theatre Makeup!  For Christmas and All Year Round!

Stage makeup is more than lathering on a heavy layer of grease paint or pancake; or applying your mascara on heavier than usual, so that you aren’t washed out looking under the bright lights on stage.

Stage makeup might include making a ‘Rudolph’ nose out of nose putty or adding prosthetic ears for one of Santa’s elves, or anything else that might be ‘face-altering’ so as to achieve a specific look. 

Some brands of stage makeup are better than others.  Most stage makeup is Hypo-Allergenic (but check the label to be certain).  In our former life in the brick and mortar costume retail business, we sold ‘Mehron’ and ‘Ben Nye’ brands, along with a couple that no longer exist.

For a general makeup book, you might want to review ‘Stage Makeup’ by Richard Corson.  Hopefully you can find it at your local library, as it is a little pricey.
