The holiday season brings with it a lot of joyful and fun activities like getting to spend time with family and friends, decorating the house and the yard and of course, eating good food. For many people, the season kicks off with Halloween and lasts right up to the last grunting, too full groan on New Year’s Day. And, for many of those people, dressing up in various costumes and outfits is just as much a part of their traditions as anything else is. If you are new to the dressing up idea or a seasoned pro, you are likely looking for the top adult mens costumes for this year, as well as the best prices on perennial favorites.
Halloween and Fall Festival Costumes
Halloween is just as much a celebration for adults as it is for the children. Many men and women like to have costumed parties, giving out prizes for the most inventive, the scariest and the sexiest costumes there. This is also the time of the year when some communities have their fall festivals, celebrating the harvest of the crop the area is best known for. If you are attending one of these festivals or better, participating in one, you might want to have a great fall themed costume. Think Jack o’Lanterns, witches, goblins and ghouls as well as the vampire and werewolves which have made a major comeback in recent years.
Some fall festivals celebrate by having a Renaissance Faire which would allow you to dress as King Henry or one of his many, ill-fated brides. Fall costumes might also celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with depictions of turkeys and pilgrims at family gatherings. Choose these costumes carefully. After all, what little child wants to frolic with Uncle Dave the Turkey only to find out an hour later that turkey is the main course!
The Winter Holidays
Christmas and other winter fun can be celebrated with costumes as well. Many families have one person who dresses as Santa Claus for their yearly family gathering. They might have others helping to pass out the goodies to the children, with their wife playing Mrs. Claus and their own kids playing elves. There might even be a reindeer or two that shows up at the fun. Other costume choices includes Frosty the Snowman and Jack Frost.
No matter which holiday you are representing and what costume you choose to wear, there are some tips to making it the best that it could possibly be. Adult costumes tend to be pricey so if you are only going to wear it the one time, rent rather than buy. If you do choose to purchase, make sure that you are storing it correctly, including all of the accessories that make it extra special. Place the costume in an airtight bag that will protect it from moths and water damage, especially if you are storing it in a garage or shed for the off season. Always try on costumes before you buy them and again before the day of the event to be sure that you will have an attractive but comfortable fit.
