Fancy dress costumes go hand-in-hand with accessories. In fact, there are some costumes that can’t be complete without the right accessories. The accessories complete the look and they even make it easier for people in the party to know which character you are playing. With so many options for accessories available today, there is a need to make sure that you get it right every time.
Shoes and feet – Some costumes come complete with shoes and footwear saving you the need to start looking for the right shoes and feet to work with the outfit. However, even when looking at what your costume has, you want to ensure that the feet and shoes are comfortable for you to wear through the party. The fact is that some can be too large or too tight, too hot or too high for your liking. In case you are not comfortable in the shoes or you don’t feel flexible enough in the feet, consider the options of replacing them with what you are more comfortable in. The fact is that it is hard for a costume to be broken meaning just because you made changes to the shoes or feet it initially came with.
Masks – Some of the costumes won’t work without a mask. A good example is the Zorro themed fancy dress costume which can lose its impact without the trademark mask. When choosing masks, be sure to consider your visibility behind it. The best mask should play its role, but still offer you good visibility. You also don’t want to keep removing the mask every time you want to talk or eat. It is advisable to select masks which offer a good allowance around the eyes, the nose and of course to the mouth. You should also make sure that it is not too tight or too hot, especially if you will be wearing it throughout the day.
Glitter and paint – They make amazing options for masks since they are easy to do and wear. When choosing, however, ensure that you get painted right to complete the look. You don’t want to end up looking like a dog when your intentions were to look like a cat for example. It is also important to choose paint and glitter that are safe to use on your skin. Always enquire about the ingredients they are made of and how safe, they are for your skin.
Wands and swords – They are some of the accessories that need to be held most part of the party. You however should consider how possible it is to stack them away when the need arises then retracting them later to hold. For instance, it can be hard to hold your party treats or food with a wand or a sword and a costume with a section where you can safely insert the wand or sword to give flexibility to your hands can be an amazing choice. Such a feature is not only convenient but also ensures your items remain safe with you.
