Costume parties are indeed fun. But that’s not all there is to costume parties. It is everyone’s chance to dress up and become someone they’ve dreamed of or just someone they truly admire. Dressing up is fun. However, it is not going to be simple. It’s hard to find a costume that’s perfect for you. But costume parties are exciting. Dressing up as a flapper, nun and a belly dancer can make you look somebody else.
The Flapper, Nun and Belly Dancer Look
There are plenty of choices to choose from and so coming up with a unique outfit is no longer a dilemma. Shopping for outfits at local hobby or craft stores can really help. It’s also a good idea to look for costume patterns. This way, you’ll easily determine the necessary materials for your dream costume. If sewing is required, you can already prepare the things you need to create a flapper, nun or a belly dancer costume.
The flapper costume started out in the 1920s when females started becoming liberated. The flapper costume is manifested through small and straight dresses. Plus, any woman will look fashionable if it’s added with long beaded necklaces, headband, and some long gloves. A flapper costume is easy to come up with, right?
Compared to the flapper costume, the belly dancer costume needs your creative juices. It’s a good idea to find a pattern which you can use as reference for creating this type of costume. Looking more like a bra, the upper part of a belly dancer costume is embellished with a sequence. Wearing a little vest over the bra is also appropriate. The skirt should always be below the belly button. The skirt needs to flow naturally while a real belly dancer dances. So, to keep your skirt flowing, ensure that it has several layers on it. Placing a headband across the forehead will make this costume more stylish. If a headband won’t do, you can replace it with a scarf which you can place across the lower part of your face.
On the other hand, the nun costume is the simplest one to come up with as compared to the other costumes. The nun costume needs a single piece of tunic which is made up of black material. To create a head covering, make use of a black material with a white material and place it across the front of your forehead. Ensure that all of your hair is covered up. When you go to local hobby or craft stores, ask the personnel if they do have a pattern for this. If they do have one, then grab the opportunity so you can visualize how a nun costume looks like.
In costume parties, each costume that you come up with reflects your character. These three types of costumes, the flapper, nun and belly dancer costumes are fun and simple to create. These costumes are relaxing to wear and so you can really wear it again and again!
