Box Costumes

Rubik's Cube Costume

I just saw this costume on the Today show and thought, wow — easy and fun!  You can create it using one box or three boxes askew, solved or unsolved, large or small, with arm holes or without.  Wear tights or black pants underneath.  You can get as fancy as you want.  If you have truly waited until the last minute — simply spray paint your boxes black with quick drying paint.  During the 15 minutes it takes for the paint to dry completely, cut out your  squares of colored paper.  Now glue or tape them to box(es) being sure to leave space between the squares so it appears they are outlined in black.   If you don't have boxes at home your local postal store or office supply store  generally stock boxes.   If you don't have a paper cutter or glue gun consider investing in one for the next time!

When we first saw this picture on Tiny Prints instagram, all we could think of is we need to share this modern take on a very classic party idea. Years ago, no self respecting hostess would consider throwing a party without having ordered personalized cocktail napkins.  We find it fascinating that all things from the 1970's are very much back in vogue this year including cocktail napkins. The only difference is that in the day, the graphic was design was usually minimal, maybe a small rose or leaf combined with the guest of honor's name in one of a half dozen or so typography choices. Today, we are privy to fabulous graphics and a whole slew of fonts from which to choose. Continue Reading →

Best Teen Costume – Sailor Moon!

Best Teen Costume – Sailor Moon!

The results are unanimous!  At least so far this year, Party Idea Pros favorite teen costumes are without a doubt these Sailor Moon Costumes. True to the appearance of the actual Sailor anime cartoon characters, these costumes are increasingly difficult to find so you will definitely not see them everywhere.  Additionally, they work perfectly for our theory that since most teenage girls travel in packs, their costumes must not only be cute and somewhat appropriate, they also need to be available in multiple colors and styles so all their girlfriends can coordinate.  This particular costume has the added advantage of having a guy version too!  In fact, these would make great couples costumes also!

So who exactly is Sailor Moon?  Sailor Moon, also known as Usagi Tsukino, is an underachieving schoolgirl who lives in Tokyo. She meets Luna who is searching for the Moon Princess. Luna discovers that she is destined to save Earth from the forces of evil and gives Usagi a brooch to transform into Sailor Moon, and asks her to form the Sailor Soldiers, find their princess and protect the “Legendary Silver Crystal.” As Usagi matures, she becomes one of the universe's powerful warriors and protects her adopted home planet, Earth, from villains who wish to harm it. Usagi is depicted as carefree and cheerful when at ease but quickly serious and strategic-minded when fighting.

So gals, as you hit the street together as superheroes Sailor Jupiter, Sailor, Mercury, Sailor Mars, and Sailor Moon this Halloween have fun and please be safe!
