Halloween Costumes for Valentine’s Day 

Although many of the sexier plus size Halloween costumes would make a good choice (especially since they are usually at a very good price after Halloween) these companies also release new designs that are more romantic than sexy and are new designs just for this February holiday. Imagine you tell the love of your life that you would like to tease their senses with a fantasy costume, whether it is a tight catsuit with a sheer bodystocking clinging to every sexy curve, or a schoolgirls uniform that includes the traditional short skirt, sexy fishnet stockings and high heels.

Unlike couples that have been with their partners for years, many single men and women that are not searching for a serious relationship, and just want to express their sexy and erotic personality, the naughty side in you can easily test your new partner by arousing them on your Valentine’s date with exotic costumes!

Depending on how well you know the person you’re spending Valentine’s Day with, or how much you are willing to spend, you will pleased to know that many online costume suppliers offer a wide variety of sexy costumes suited to your budget and needs.

It’s fun to browse the many costume sites online in the privacy of your home, and you will enjoy the convenience of viewing a wide selection of costumes that are specifically tailored for Valentine’s.

Valentine’s has been around a long time, and while costumes might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the lovey-dovey holiday, perhaps our costume guide will inspire you to throw your own party on February 14th!

We love it when people get inspired by history for their costumes, and even though Valentine’s isn’t known as a dress up holiday, we’d like to show you just a few reasons why it SHOULD be. Throw that Valentine’s Day party for coupled and single friends both by using these ideas of famous lovers… who knows, you just might kick start a new, legendary romance at your party.

Maybe your man always fantasized about strippers, and nothing for them would be more appealing then for you to slip on that see-through full piece bodystocking and those sexy boots with high heels, and you offered him a seductive dance.

Mardi Gras Costume Party?

Get your beads and your crazy costumes and head down to New Orleans, its Mardi Gras time. Apart from the scheduled events, everyone wears fancy costumes or at least a mask, and dresses in the Mardi Gras colors of purple (symbolizes justice), green (symbolizes faith), and gold (symbolizes power).

Picking just the right Mardi Gras clothes, means that first of all you need to decide what you want to express with them., Whether or not you want conservative or something wild or in between means that you have to make a few choices prior to beginning to collect the clothing or to make what you want.

Lake Charles is also the only place in the state where the public is invited to see the ornate costumes the royal courts from all local krewes in one place, both at the Twelfth Night evening, usually held on January 6 each year, as well as the Royal Gala, held the evening before Mardi Gras day.  Ideas galore for you.

Stage Makeup – Starter Course

This is a starter Stage Makeup Course.  More to follow.  I noticed Revlon being one of the brands being used in this discussion.  My suggestion is to go to a theatrical costume shop (maybe even try Amazon in the red banner at the top of the screen.  No not there….WAY at the top of the screen) and look for brands like Mehron or Ben Nye.  For more on costumes and stage makeup, visit us at CLICK HERE

Stage Makeup

Stage Makeup

Beginning tomorrow, and for a few weeks, we will start a series of videos on stage / theatrical makeup from the very basics to more sophisticated character makeup using prosthetics, liquid latexes, crepe hair,etal.  These videos may or may not be an any special order, but you might, at least,  get the idea of what stage makeup is and does.

Blue Grease Makeup

BTW, stage makeup is not street makeup applied more heavily, although some of the same makeup techniqes are used. It is a specially formulated makeup that helps an actor appear to have natural color (for the character he’s playing) from both a distance and under intense stage lighting.  It generally is not found at your local drug store or  even cosmetic counter at a department store.  For best results, check with your local costume shop (not of the seasonal Halloween variety).  If you can’t find one locally, contact www.costumers.org for the closest one in your state.

BTW, we may even get into cuts bruises, scars and ugly monster makeup this month…or not.  Who knows?
