Anime Character Costumes

Anime Character Costumes

As many of you already know, we are Yahoo news junkies and every once in a while, a story inspires us, appalls us, or simply makes us laugh.  This morning's story about a gal from Ukraine who spends hours each day transforming herself into a real life anime character got our creative juices flowing.  For months we have been contemplating how best to showcase the amazing custom anime character costumes but worried that they might not quite achieve the desired look on a real live human being.

Cosplay Air Gear Ringo Noyamano Costume

We were wrong – with a little make-up and great cosplay costume, just about anyone can transform themselves into a living anime character for not much more than an off the rack Halloween costume.  These high quality, custom designed cosplay anime character costumes look amazingly authentic and will definitely help you stand out from the pack this Halloween.  Cosplay costumes also work great as couples costumes and group costumes but it is essential that you plan ahead because they are special order and take a few extra days for delivery.

Here are a few videos showing you how2 create those amazingly large anime eyes fanboys adore.

OMG! At just $4.99 – that's 80% OFF, Izzy, the tutu queen, thinks these are the cutest tutus ever! She is already planning for next Halloween and is coaxing me to buy extras to stock up her costume box just in case one of the fraternities host a superhero party or just about any other theme party she can have an excuse to wear a red, blue or black tutu to. Plus, how cute would these wonder woman boy shorts be worn underneath the tutus (or just to feel strong, independent and powerful – perfect for exam days!)  These superheroine tutus would also make for an adorable group costume when 3 girlfriends want to coordinate their party look!

Top 3 Tory Burch Bikinis for Spring Break

Top 3 Tory Burch Bikinis for Spring Break

Spring Break is just around the corner and it is definitely not too early to begin thinking about what swimwear you plan on packing for your trip to Cabo or Daytona Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Springs, or wherever you and your friends have chosen as this year's beach destination.  Be sure to check both Hotels.com and Expedia.com for great Spring Break deals!

And to start you thinking we have selected our top 3 Tory Burch bikinis.  We especially love Tory Burch's Reversible Bikinis since you get 2 suits for the price of one!  And the fact that all of her suits are mix and match so you can choose different bottoms and tops, in whatever size fits best makes these bathing suits great for just about any body shape.

Get the School Spirit – Save on Fan Poms!

Whether you call them fan poms, spirit poms, or rooter poms, this staple of cheer and pom pom squads are typically used to encourage crowd participation and to build team spirit at high school and college sporting events.

Spiritline is now offering individuals, organizations, and fundraising groups a special discount on the bulk purchase of 50 or more spirit poms.   Sports fan poms do especially well in gift shops and concession stands because fans find them to be fun and affordable and can be ordered in most school color combinations.  Additionally fan poms can be used as a fundraising tool by selling advertising space on custom coupon handle poms.

But our absolute favorite use of spirit poms is to gather a few dozen together and place them in  inexpensive white (or any color) urns to create  festive, colorful, impressive table centerpieces!  Perfect for end of year banquets, award ceremonies, school fundraisers, graduation celebrations, and yes, even patriotic parties.  It may be worth hanging around after the game to gather the poms left by fans in the stands.  🙂

If you need fewer than 50 poms, check out Spiritline‘s sister company Shindigz whose minimum pom order is 12 each rather than 5o each.

Go Team! Party Hearty!

Christmas Party Invitations – Mirthful Moustache

Loving this new mustache  theme Christmas Party Invitation and matching holiday moustache postage.  How fun would it be to host a mustache theme party holiday party replete with Mustache Stache Bash Cupcakes and mustache theme holiday cookies.

perfect for  holiday party bachelor and fraternity parties, and both adult and children’s holiday  birthday parties.

Game Board Costumes for Couples

The couple who plays together stays together!

We happened upon these great new game board costumes for couples (or groups or singles!)  The gals costumes are all cute and sassy and the guys, well shall we say they are rather “goofy.” We particularly like the his & her Operation costumes – in fact they inspired this post.  We can absolutely see a group costume of 4 teenage girls arriving in style as a set of games, Scrabble, Monopoly, Twister, & Operations.  We can even imagine adding a fun costume element to your Game Night Party.

Do not worry – there is still plenty of time to order and receive your costumes in time for Halloween!

Party Hearty!

We have had so much interest in our Psy's Gangnam Style Costumes we thought it might be fun to do a follow-up in response to the many requests asking for additional Gangnam style  costume ideas for gals.

Our most asked question is how to create female versions of the male characters.   Here are a few of our favorite female Psy costumes.  One piece of  advice – don't dawdle.  Most pieces have limited availability and are flying off the shelves!

Psy’s Gangnam Style Costumes

Gangnam Style Halloween CostumesPsy's Gangnam Style was the first video to hit 1B YouTube views!  What better way to spend Halloween than riding an invisible horse in unison with the entire Gangnam Style entourage. The toughest decision you have is whether to be the awesomely hilarious elevator guy, yellow suited dance star, or Psy himself! We did our best to put together ensemble options but this unique style is selling out fast. We'll continue to update your wardrobe options as they become available and remember, the way to truly master the Gangnam Style is to perfect the horse riding dance while holding that serious look on your face!

Halloween Piñatas

Halloween piñatas

Halloween Piñatas

Kids love piñatas almost as much as they love candy.  So combining a piñata with Halloween trick or treating – how perfect is that!  We love these Halloween Piñatas – a scary black cat, a giant flying bat, a witch on a broomstick, an adorable Frankenstein, and a great carved pumpkin.

Halloween Piñatas are not only perfect additions to any party they may be a great alternative for those of you not so into trick or treating, begging for candy by knocking on strangers doors.  The fact is that some children really do find the holiday of Halloween scary and overwhelming so inviting a few friends over to your house for a costume party may be just the answer.  Send out Halloween invitations, serve Halloween theme food & drink, play Halloween games, offer cute Halloween party favors, have a costume fashion show, and end the festivities with breaking the piñata so everyone walks away with a bagful of candy.  This way you also have complete control over the candy and don't have to comb through pillow cases full of yucky unwrapped candy handed out by strangers.

Have a safe Halloween and party hearty!
