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!

Party Hearty!

Cute Costumes for Teenage Girls

Teen Costumes ! Looking for the perfect costume? A fashionable teen costume for Halloween, plays, parties or other events?  There are so many costumes from which to choose, Party Idea Pros is highlighting just a few of our favorites.

Most teenage girls we know travel in packs and love coordinating their costumes.  One year all the high school girls dressed as storybook characters.  Another year they all dressed in neon.  Not sure yet what this year will bring … crayons, candy, goth, witches, goddesses, sesame street, superheroes?   Whatever they choose, I have no doubt the teen costumes will be too short and too sexy for their parents' taste!

Click on the links or pictures for the teen costume for details but remember, the photos below just give you the overall look. Quite often you can choose from a variety of options ranging from almost dowdy to quite sexy, so be sure to click on the “see more” links option when you visit the costume site.  Many of these costumes are specially sized just for a teen but don't worry if they are not.  Most of the x-small or small adult costumes will fit just fine.   If they are cut a bit too low for your taste,  add a tank top underneath.  If they are too short … that's why leggings were invented.  🙂

Venetian Mask Halloween Costume – Unique & Elegant!

Venetian Mask Halloween Costume - Unique & Elegant!Every once in a while I come across a picture or a photo that inspires me.  This one popped up on my Facebook feed.  Admittedly, I am extremely biased but my niece's gorgeous piercing blue eyes staring out from behind that incredible  Venetian blue and gold mask made me wonder if this Halloween rather than donning the usual scary costume or sexy fantasy costume we might consider  more refined, almost elegant Halloween attire.  I must admit, after my truly scary Halloween experience being stalked by a crazy dressed  in a Clockwork Orange costume, I get a bit freaked out by Halloween.  Sometimes I believe Halloween is used as an excuse for people to “try on” behaviors and personae that are unacceptable in every day life.   But I digress.

Light Blue Venetian Mask

The point of this post is to suggest switching it up this Halloween – rather than spend a fortune on a one wear costume, raid your closet or better yet buy yourself that long coveted cocktail dress you can wear again and again and add a stunning  Venetian mask. You can even create a couples Venetian mask that is both easy and fabulous or join forces with your girlfriends and together make a jaw dropping entrance.  (This would make a great teen costume too especially if all of your friends wore different but coordinating masks!!) Elegance is forever chic and  always sexy!
