There is no better party than Carnivale and no better time to pull out all the stops and don your Mardi Gras finest. First we culled through hundreds of costumes to gather the best of the best Mardi Gras costumes and then we searched for great jester costumes, Voodoo costumes, and Masquerade costumes to make sure you had enough options. We particularly love the Voodoo Doctor and His Voodoo Dolls as a great group costume for both trick or treating teens or adult costume parties. And don't you think this beautiful watercolor card depicting a Venetian Masquerade party would make for wonderful inspiration for a visual twist on the standard Carnivale, Halloween, or Mardi Gras costume party?

With the vampire ripe holiday of Halloween quickly approaching, we have decided to throw back to one of our original parties, The Twilight Saga Party. Back in the day, ok 2009, we, and much of the country, were very, very into anything and everything Twilight, Bella, Edward and Jacob. Since the Twilight heyday has clearly come and gone and truthfully, there are not that many Twilight related products still available, we have decided to combine all our various Twilight Saga parties into a single post.

2015 has been quite the year. We were so inspired by this Great Gets post imagining Halloween costumes ripped from the headlines. Theme your Halloween and create a ripped from the headlines Halloween party! Tell your guests to arrive in costumes straight off the front page and the evening news — between politics, sports, and culture, there's plenty to choose from! These costumes are easy, fun, and add a touch of humor and pop culture knowledge to any Halloween party. And yes although some of the featured costumes are satirical and poke a bit of fun at politicians and other public figures, we have made a conscious decision not to feature costumes we deem disrespectful, or have the potential to incite violence or foster hatred and we implore you to do the same. Please no Caitlyn Jenner or Black Lives Matter costumes, and please, please stay away from anything and everything ISIS.
