Adult Costumes, Sexy Adult Fancy Dress Costumes
Do Adult costumes go out of fashion? Once you’ve worn them to one party… do you just hang them up to be worn to another fancy dress costume party next year? Or do you chuck them straight in the bin and say you’ve done that one, thanks very much… next!
Adult costumes seem to sell quite well on the internet… and without too much fuss. Funnily enough, that’s where I bought my fabulous Darth Vader costume for last years Halloween party. It was a big hit because it was so authentic looking, almost a ‘real’ Darth Vader’s costume… if you can imagine such a thing. It had the breathing helmet thing going on as well, so I drew quite a crowd with other party-goers wanting to see how that worked. The question now though is: Do I wear this extremely popular adult costume again next year? Most of the same people will be there. And I don’t think I can possibly repeat the performance, and expect anywhere near as much of the same ‘wow’ factor as I got from the first time round wearing this superior adult costume.
Or being that adult costumes such as my Vader suit are a roaring success (and cost a small fortune); does that mean one should hang onto them regardless of whether or not they get worn again? Surely if that’s the rule, then one could end up with a wardrobe chocker block with fantastic ‘worn once’ adult costumes that are too good to throw away. Where do your normal clothes go? I mean, some adult costumes take up a lot of space. I once had a bumble bee suit (don’t ask) that was a real fat, furry little number and it took up about four hangers in my wardrobe… not counting shelf space for the wings!
Hiring your adult costume might work… all you need to do is return it to the shop the next day and walk away with minimum responsibility (assuming you don’t throw up on it). But, by the time you pay for the rental, and the seamstress who has to alter it (hired costumes never fit), it can cost about the same as if you had purchased it in the first place! Plus hire costumes can be stinky, have faulty zippers (just about guaranteed), or they look second hand (i.e. cheap). Who wants an adult costume that looks cheap?
Adult costumes and party outfits could be recycled, I guess. You could turn your Batman cape into a nice tablecloth… and rip the tights up into small strips for tying up your tomato plants. And you could team the utility belt up with your everyday casual wear – it could look quite nifty with a pair of jeans and a nice jumper… NOT!
