People are far more relaxed and generally have more fun, when they are in costume. They are more likely to let their hair down and cut loose. (Of course alcoholic beverages can have the same effect, so...) For your next family reunion, consider making a real party out of it by designating it a costume party.
The Hits Just Keep On Comin’
So many relatives – so many costumes. So many costumes – so little time. Not exactly positive as to how to stand out amongst all those other relatives? By logging on to an Internet costume shop you can view fancy dress ideas, retro costumes, inexpensive costumes, plus size costumes costumes for couples, costumes for boys or for girls, costumes for men or for women, baby halloween costumes
and costumes for your toddler... and of course good old-fashioned Halloween themed costumes if that’s what you’re really looking for. (Yawn.)
No reason to be boring however, when there are so many choices. Under the theme retro alone costumes can include any of the following: Burlesque, steampunk, Victorian, Renaissance, Western, colonial, medieval, biblical or some other timepiece having to do with the recent 90s, the amazing 80s, the rebellious 70s, hippies and the 60s, rock and rolls 50s and of course the roaring 20s complete with gangsters and flappers.
Make Your Choices Easier
The above listed choices are more than just costumes... they are themes
. And themes can take your average party and really kick it up a notch. Every listing under ‘retro’ alone could be the theme for your costume party. Additionally you could use a circus, hair bands, Sherlock Holmes mysteries, a hospital, catholic/private school (with uniforms), old military/WW ll, new age military, the Civil War, firefighters and paramedics, construction... as you can see, the possibilities are endless.
Even more complicated but entertaining themes take a little more imagination, but are well worth the effort. Here are a couple: come as the person you most admire; come as the person you’re really glad you’re not; couples can dress up like each other; dress up as your favorite celebrity (movie, TV, music, etc.); or dress up as your favorite superhero (or create one of your own).
All you have to do now is set the date and round up the whole family.
