Masquerade Prom is HOT in New York City this year!

Article submitted by the Masquerade Costumes Store / Halloween Adventure Times Square:

We here at Halloween Adventure 43rd Street have made one BIG observation this past week:

Masquerade masks are definitely IN with the high school and teenage crowd here in the Times Square area. Masquerade Prom, masquerade school cruises, masquerade Sweet Sixteens (and Fifteens). That means it's been a very busy week for us here at Masquerade Costumes!

Floor managers Gabby and Oriana report that at least 3 schools in the area are having masquerade themed proms (junior and/or senior proms), according to information they've gathered from teenage shoppers this week. Oriana says that masks are being bought by both male and female students. "It's not just the girls," said Oriana, "but the females have been more into feathers."

When asked what sort of masks the teens have been buying most, store manager Stella reports "Mardi Gras, definitely." She goes on, "I've been getting groups of kids in here all day buying Mardi Gras masks. Definitely." Stella said she would certainly call this a feeding frenzy.

Gabby spoke a bit about the development of the masquerade mask popularity among the teenagers. She said the mad dash for masks this week started with a small burst of student shopper activity on Monday, and by Thursday the rush was in full swing.

Gabby also added that she has noticed the masquerade mask popularity gradually increasing with young people since New Years this year.

The masquerade rush has been keeping the Masquerade staff on their toes this prom season, and Stella and crew have been in top form throughout it all!

The Iron Man Cometh!

With the coming of Iron Man 2 to theaters this week (Friday, May 7), so too have come a great selection of Iron Man costumes to New York Costumes!

For adult Iron Man fans and character portrayals, we have both Iron Man and War Machine costumes.

The Adult Deluxe Iron Man Mark VI costume includes a strikingly realistic color and shading style to represent the Iron Man body armor, as well as a muscled chest and shoulders (for extra buffness!), a glowing reflector chest icon, and a mask in the style of Iron Man's helmet.

The Adult Deluxe War Machine costume includes a muscled jumpsuit, much like Iron Man's though colored and styled in steely grey and mechanical fashion of War Machine. It also includes a character mask.

For children, we have a variety of styles of Iron Man costumes. These include Iron Man Mark III and Mark VI versions: the Iron Man Mark III Classic, Iron Man Mark III Muscle, Iron Man Mark VI Classic, and the Iron Man Mark VI Muscle, as well as the children's War Machine Muscle Costume.

Come and check 'um out at New York Costumes at 104 4th Ave in New York City. And remember that you can see the new Iron Man 2 movie in "Regal Premium Experience" at the Friday, May 7 debut, at the Regal E-Walk Stadium 13, 247 W 42nd street, New York City.
