Couples Masks for Valentine's Mardi Gras Fun


Continuing along on the theme of a "Valentine's Day Mardi Gras," since in 2010 Valentine's Day is its usual Feb 14, while Mardi Gras is Feb 16, we will investigate some nifty couples' masks for masquerading and mischief.

Whether you are a part of a couple or seeking to be (perhaps with the help of Cupid's arrow), couples' mask sets leave many opportunities for get-together games.

The obvious choice would be for a pair of lovers to show up together at an event - say, a Valentine's Day ball - in matching couples' masks. Or, perhaps the pair might even stay at home and wear their masks there, even so.

If a single is looking for his or her love on an evening out, he/she could wear one of the masks and carry the second to give to his/her mate or mate-to-be. Hide and seek type games or scavenger hunts for one or both of the masks are also possible games to play.

Maybe a single guy or gal who is pursued by many suitors will carry the mask that matches his/her own and then, with all competing suitors assembled, place that matching mask on the mate is his/her choice. Wow, now that sounds like something out of a fairy tale!

Let's have a look at some popular couple's masks...

There are the red feathered Mardi Gras couples masks with gold trim and dangling lace. There is the male masquerade mask version and the female masquerade mask version. There are headband masks.




There are also black feathered Mardi Gras couples masks of a similar style to the red one mentioned above, except that they have a bit more of an "elven" eyebrow shape and the "female" verison of the mask has glittery gems between the eyes. Both male and female versions of this mask have ribbons attached. They are also headband masks.



Then there are the deep maroon masquerade couples masks. These are simple yet regal, covered in velvet texture. The "female" version comes with feathers attached, while the "male" version maintains an even greater simplicity. These are another pair of headband masks.




Another version of the red couples masks come in devil-esque style. Both sport a similar base design, but the female red devil couples mask sprouts feathers while the Mardi Gras male red devil mask keeps a simpler style.




Transparent masks also make great options for couples. There are old man, old women, young man, and young woman style.




Actually, there are so many combinations for couples masks, I'm just going to have to open a separate blog entry to continue counting them off! Chew on these velvet ones and the transparent one for now!

Mardi Gras Valentine's for 2010

Mardi Gras is coming early in 2010! This coming year, Mardi Gras will be on Tuesday, February 16.

Whoa! So soon! And with Valentine's Day 2010 coming on its usual February 14, there is such great potential for a Mardi Gras style Valentine's Day. Here are a bunch of ideas so that you don't get caught off guard when these two very distinct holidays collide:

Masks are the Mardi Gras trade mark, and masks also make great mystery fun for love birds. Classic romance-style masks naturally suggest the color red, with lace, feathers, golden trim, and hearts. Imagine two secretly wooing love birds, one in a graceful red and gold masquerade Mardi Gras mask and the other in a classic black and gold venetian Mardi Gras mask. Or a regal masked princess wearing a golden Mardi Gras mask with ribbons and jewels listening to the love songs sung by a wooer in the mysterious midnight masquerade Mardi Gras mask.


Real Valentine's mystery can be had with full face masks of Mardi Gras flavor. Full face black and gold masquerade masks give a lover a spooky and serene look. And then there is the reveler-lover with the very potentially deceptive plain white full face masquerade mask.

This is definitely a festive idea that you can develop further and further. If your a lover of revels, it's actually very lucky to have Valentine's Day and Mardi Gras falling so near to each other for 2010!

New Years Eve 2010 - Celebrate in Style!

2010 is approaching, and we all want to celebrate in style for the marking of the start of a new decade.

New Year's Eve in New York City poses seemingly endless possibilities - Where to go? What to do? There are so many games in town, it's hard to choose... or even to know what's out there to choose from.

Luckily, New Year's Eve Central can offer you a clue into your New Years nightlife options in NYC. Premium parties, open bars, lounges, clubs, and a variety of celebrations can all be found in the New Year's Even Central directory. And from the looks of it, there will be parties almost everywhere to ring in 2010!

When the Elves Come Marching In

We talked quite a bit about Santa in the last blog entry, particularly because of the upcoming SantaCon. But what about the little guys who keep Mr. Kringle up and running?

Let's talk about elves, baby. In particular, let's talk about elf costumes and some great options for dressing the part of one of Santa's helpers.

For starters, there is the classic Red and Green Velvet Elf Costume, which makes a splendid stand-alone costume or a base for holiday elven attire. Slip on the velvet one-piece red and green tunic, wrap the golden cord belt around your waist, on with the included hat and shoes, and off you go! There are golden belts and pom poms attached to the garment as well.

Not in the market for velvet elvishness? There's also the simpler, matte style Red and Green Elf Tunic to serve as your base garment or stand-alone. This tunic comes with a hat, cord belt, and shoes, all in red and green alternating colors. There are no bells on this one, but there are certainly pom poms! Bells can be added on to the belt, hat, or shoes with a bit of do-it-yourself needle and thread work.

For elvish wear of a solid color, there's the Green Peter Pan Costume, which comes with a tunic, hat, and tights, all in green. And of course, since elves like cord belts (so it seems?!), there's a white cord belt included as well. This tunic has dagged edges on the hem and sleeves, as well as a folded collar and a lace-up neck.

An even simpler green elf can be created with the Simple Green Elf Costume. Really to the point: green pull-over tunic without sleeves, a black sash, and green hat.

Already got an elf costume base? Looking to accessorize, perhaps?

Though not technically an accessory, the green adult long-sleeved bodysuit adds form fitted style to an elf ensemble. Also in the form fitting vein, there are Red and Green parti-colored tights and children's seamless green tights.

More formally an accessory: Green plush elf shoes. And then there are green elf suspenders and red fuzzy Santa hats, for outfitting the mini helpers in the style of their boss man, Mr. Kringle. And for your bag of goodies, use a velvet Santa Sack. Red and gold, with a shoulder strap - perfect for hauling gifts for the big guy.

And these are only a few ideas for holiday elf attire. Go classic... or even go wild. Assemble a basic elf costume, and then add some punk rock accessories for a "hardcore" look, or a mardi gras mask for an even greater festive look, or maybe even some hippy accessories to send a Peace on Earth message all around!

SantaCon is coming to town. What to wear?!

SantaCon is coming to town, and sooner than you think! For this wild street-roving spectacle of Santas, what's a well-dressed Chris Kringle to wear?

The key to Santa style is, as with all splendid attire, the basics plus the right accessories. Basic Santa suits come in a variety of materials. For example, there are flannel Santa suits, plush Santa suits, velour Santas suits, and even velvet suits. All of these give you your basic color scheme and shape: red jacket and pants trimmed in white fur (most often faux fur), red hat trimmed in the white fur, and a nice wide belt. Some suits come with Santa boot tops as well, which is a plus.

For those of you Santas on a budget, consider the economical complete Santa suit made of felt. It makes a great low priced Santa suit option.

But where do you go from here? Accessorize!

What first? The beard! There's always the classic white Santa beard, which often comes with an accompanying white wig. But if you are looking for a Santa beard that only slightly defies the expected, there are Uncle Sam beards for a slightly pointier look and Super Deluxe Santa beards for a really full-coverage type mega beard effect. Then there economy Santa beards, often called the "Xtra Long Beard and Moustache," which give the basic Santa beard look.

To deviate a bit from the "classic" Santa beard, there are beards in colors other than white, of course! A slightly younger looking Santa might go for a Character Beard in light brown or grey, or even a blond full coverage beard. And a more WILD Santa would be well suited to have a spiky Caveman beard and wig! Furthermore, there are Abe Lincoln beards to consider, thick and curly black beards, and even pirate goatees and mustache sets, for a really non-traditional look.

Once you've got your Santa facial hair under control, you can look to other important accessories.

Gloves make a great addition. White polyester gloves provide one simple option, as do white nylon snap close gloves. There are also the classic black leather-looking gloves with cuffs. And for funkier Santas - whom we see especially during SantaCon! - there are black studded leather-looking gloves, Glow in the Dark Skeleton hand gloves, and even gloves that look like black hairy monster hands!

For reading those lists of wishes, Santa glasses come in handy. Ben Franklin glasses make great Santa glasses, with their golden square frames. Character glasses with round frames offer another basic option for Santa Claus attire. For the cool-kat Claus, there are funky sun glasses in any variety of shapes and sizes.

Other splendid accessories include boot tops, as mentioned above, for those Santas who don't have tall riding boots of their own. The belt is another biggy to consider, and not just because most Santas have considerably waist-lines! How big will your buckle be? And what color? Will it be a belt with the classic gold buckle? Or maybe a belt with the buckle in black? Or maybe you'll forgo the belt and jacket and go with Santa suspenders instead?

And the hat! You can't forget the classic Santa head covering red fur trimmed hat. There are basic Santa hats, for Santas on a budget, and there are fuzzy Santa hats in the same red and white color scheme. From there, there are Santa hats in colors other than red, ranging from blue to green, to camouflage even.

Once you've got your basic suit and accessories taken care of, you can take your Santa Claus even further, if you like. Biker Santas, plumber Santas, pirate Santas, and even gorilla Santas are all entirely possible to help make your SantaCon crawl into an even greater spectacle. The sky's the limit, so get on your sleigh and get out there to see what kind of Chris Kringle costume you can put together for this year's festivities!

Moustache Party? All the Rage!

Whether you call it a moustache or a mustache or perhaps even a mini beard, one thing is for sure - the Moustache Party is a theme event that's slowly taking the party scene by storm!

It seems that many people have more fun at parties where everyone has a "party moustache" (or "party mustache," depending on how you prefer to spell it!). But...

What if you can't just grow a moustache in time for the party?!
Moustache party supplies, of course! What kind of facial hair is out there?

Well, Character Moustaches provide one possible, realistic solution. These types of fake facial hair stick on to your upper lip with spirit gum or double sided tap (such as Topstick or Toupee Tape). These are made with real human hair and come in Black, Blonde, Dark Grey, Light Brown, Light Grey, Medium Brown. The Rubie's Character Moustaches are probably one of the most realistic looking costume moustaches you will find.

Then there's the European style Moustache, the Handlebar Moustache, the Mandarin Moustache, the Winchester Moustache, and the Zapata Moustache, all from the Rubie's line. But, what if you have MULTIPLE moustache parties coming up? What if you need a different moustached look for each of the thrilling facial hair festivities? There's always the very versatile 6-Way Moustache that clips to your nose. It's specifically billed as a "party moustache," in fact, and you can "shape it any way you like."

And if your moustache party happens to require that you go that extra yard, there are always fake sideburns to stick on with spirit gum or double stick tape, and fake goatees to give you that extra-dashing look.

We've been seeing moustache party-goers increasing in numbers. Why, just this morning, someone came into New York Costumes to purchase 200 moustaches! It's wild.

So, are you getting your moustache party groove on?

Why turn to modern day heroes when it come to your costumes? How about going back in time and celebrating the figures and folks who've made our world what it is today?
Let’s do the Time Warp Again: Costumes from all ages!
This Halloween, try something different! Instead of playing a character, play an age! You’ve been Sexy French Maid and Wonder Woman, Fairy Queen and Wicked Witch of the West. Maybe it’s time to step out of those thickly drawn lines and try something a bit more experimental.
Might as well face it you’re addicted to love: the 80s may not have been that long ago, but they had styles like no other decade. Maybe you’ll rock the side ponytail and the wacky makeup; maybe shoulder pads will be your thing. Maybe you have a leotard you’ve been dying to wear to work. Well, work might not be an appropriate venue, but Halloween is coming! If you’re looking to love the 80s hair on Halloween night, check out our 80s offerings.
Hippie Hippie Shake Shake: Peace, love and rock and roll man! You’ve always wished you could live in the 60s. Might as well live out that dream for a night. While we know the 60s was all about free love and a little bit of nudity, we’d recommend you keep your clothes on for Halloween night. Wouldn’t want to embarrass yourself. We’ve got plenty of accoutrements to keep your sassy sixties-self happy, from peace sign necklaces to bell-bottoms and tie-dye. Let your inner hippie shake shake shake the night away!
Way back when: Perhaps you’re feeling goddess like. Athena’s calling to you. You’ve been getting a bit sick of this world and are thinking of taking a trip backwards to the Grecian era when all was beautiful and togas were the name of the game. If so, check out our Grecian Princess costume.
1920s glamazon: Maybe flapper girl is the look of the evening. If you’re feeling glamour gal, check out our selection of 1930s costumes. Look no further than our flapper girl series. You’ll never want to go back to the year 2000.
With all these ideas, you’re certain to rock the ages this Halloween. Get into character and imagine yourself into a different time. There’s no time like the present to “do the time warp again!”

Animal Costumes at HA NYC!







This Halloween, pay homage to the other half of our species. No, we don’t mean men; we mean animals! Some we think of as pets, some we see in zoos, some we see as food, but let’s face it, all of them make great costumes!
Buggin’ out? Women can rock our Lady Bug Adult Classic Costume. This costume is as adorable as can be, with a short red mini dress with black spots, black and red wings and a little hat with antennae. It even comes with black gloves!
Go sexy with our Peacock Animal Costume. This costume includes a fabulous striped dress with blues, greens and gold. It comes with a giant peacock tail that fans out behind you, and a feathered headpiece. Peacocks aren’t a usual costume choice, so you can be sure you’ll be the only girl around with this baby on!
Men and women alike can rock our Penguin Adult Costume. This costume is funny and cute at the same time. Grab a bunch of them and make like March of the Penguins! Another funny option (though along a different vein) is our Pigs in a Blanket Adult Costume. If penguins aren’t your thing, maybe pigs are! Oink oink!
Teens can rock our Cat’s Meow Teen Costume. Costume includes a full out spotted body suit with attached tail, a headband with adorable ears and glovelets. Meeeowww, girl!
Make some moooo-sic with our Comical Cow Costume. Costume includes black & white cow print jumpsuit, headpiece with attached horns & ears and of course the udder. It’s sure to get some laughs out of even the most sour of partygoers.
Get things buzzin’ in our Fly Girl Adult Costume. This one’s got a double meaning, giving a shout out to old school Fly Girls like JLO and a shout out to our least favorite bugs. Flies might not be well liked, but you will be, because this costume is great! It includes a black dress with blue “FLY GIRL” writing, realistic looking wings, and a little hat with antennae. Buzz buzz buzz!
For more animal costumes, visit Halloween Adventures!

Get Your Fairy Costumes in NYC!








In female-land, Halloween is the only day of the year on which you can dress however you'd like and no one can say a thing. It might not be right, it might not be a redeeming female thought, but hey, it’s the truth, so you might as well embrace it and enjoy! After all, who doesn’t want to just go a little crazy every once and a while?
What better way to take on sexy than to go the sexy fairy tale route? We’ll start with the Black Fairy Velvet Costume, a confection complete with belt, shoulder pieces and wings. Who said fairies have to be all sugar and no spice? This costume allows you to be as bad as you’d like to be as you dance through the music of the night. Take it one step further and add some sass with our long black wig.
If black’s a bit too dark for you, try our Night Bloom Fairy Costume. This purple getup comes complete with sheer purple wings with glitter accents, as well as a matching choker, hair scrunchie and purple shimmer belt. It’s sexy with just a dash of sweet and plenty of mystery.
If you want to go totally girly, you’ve got to get your hands on our Pink Sexy Fairy costume! This outfit is pink prissy perfection! A brocade and panne dress with devours inserts and matching sleeves, it’s a cross between Good Witch Glinda and gorgeous ballerina. Comes with pink sheer wings. Up, up and away you go!
For something in between, check out our Twilight Fairy Fantasy Costume. This costume is pretty at its best, a delicate lavender dress with multi-colored sequin trim and matching choker. A delightfully candy-colored confection, it comes with gorgeous sheer wings with pink, white and gold sparkly accents. Sexy, and beautiful!
For more sexy accents, check out our selection of tiaras, wigs, and wings! Decorate your face with our wide range of glitter, colorful, gorgeous makeup!

Get Your Gothic Goddess Costumes Here in New York!









The Goths. You know, those kids in high school who wore all black and probably had a lot of piercings and listened to music so loud you could swear it would break their eardrums into millions of tiny electrified pieces. Well, this Halloween, pay them some homage. They were different. They were badass. They had attitude. Halloween Adventures has costumes for every type of Goth enthusiast, from those who just want a tiny bit of sass to those who want to paint it black.
Men will love our Gothic Count Costume. This outfit includes a totally bad oversized black velvet hooded cloak reminiscent of vampires and ghouls with silver medallions. Paint your face white, pile on the black eyeliner, maybe even go crazy with some black lipstick and you’ve got yourself one Gothic costume.
Ladies will rock our Gothic Girlie Adult Costume. This outfit includes a sassy sheer black dress and fabulous hair scrunchies. Put your hair into pigtails, or if you’ve got short hair, snag one of our Witch Wigs to complete the look.
Go back to high school (no, we don’t mean like Drew Barrymore in Never Been Kissed) in our Gothic High Prom Queen Costume. This costume includes a Black dress with Red dots, winner sash, fishnet-stocking gloves, woven tiara and skull scepter. Winner sash differs from shown. Sash reads "Hell High Prom Queen.”
Go all the way with our Gothic Lace Vampiress Adult Costume. Costume includes: Long Black gown with stand up gothic collar & choker, Burgundy gothic lace sleeves with tassels and tassel tie belt. This costume looks great with a large amount of black eyeliner as well as some black lipstick.
Those who love the vampire look will also adore our Gothic Maiden Plus Size Costume. This gothic maiden includes a black velveteen hooded dress with burgundy lace sleeves and hood, and a rope waist tie. This dress is big, bad and beautiful!
Those who still want some sexy with their Goth should snag our Graveyard Fairy Adult Costume.
