Celebrate Mother’s Day with the Top 5 Costumes for Moms

Share This!
Facebook Twitter

I’m a mom so naturally I love Mother’s Day. Even though I consider it a Hallmark holiday, I still like to be recognized for trying my best. As every mom knows, being a mother is the world’s hardest job short of Bering Sea crab fisherman.

To mark the holiday, here are my Top 5 costumes that all mom’s will appreciate:

1. Wonder Woman – She is the keeper of peace, has amazing strength and she has a golden lasso of truth. If she wants to spy, her invisible airplane allows her to gather surveillance unnoticed.  In a way, every mom is Wonder Woman. I just wish I looked as good as she does in that outfit.

2. Mrs Incredible – Mrs. Incredible’s ability to stretch in super human ways is very similar to our ability to catch a wandering toddler while simultaneous cooking dinner, helping with homework, getting the dog out of the trash and talking to our boss on the phone.

3, Mother Nature – She is the mother of us all. To harness her power would be beyond compare. Without Mother Nature, there would be no life on Earth and without us moms, there would be no inhabitants.

4. Carol Brady – We should envy Mrs. Brady. Not only did she get to stay home but she had hired help to do all the work. I wonder what she did all day while the kids were at school? I know what I’d do. Then, with all those kids, she and Mr. Brady still had plenty of energy at the end of the day to get frisky.

5. 50’s Mom – She may be very far from the norm today but the 50’s mom, in a way, is what we with we could be. She always looked perfect; never left the house with out her hair done and fully made up. When her hubby got home, the house was spotless, the kids were quietly occupying themselves and a gourmet dinner was on the table.

To all the moms out there, Costume SuperCenter wished you the most wonderful and special Mother’s Day yet

Two Snow White Movies With Very Different Costumes

Share This!
Facebook Twitter

There are two Snow White movies premiering within two months of each other. Mirror Mirror comes out on March 30 and stars Lily Collins as Snow White and Julia Roberts as The Queen. On June first, Snow White and the Huntsman will premiere starring Kristen Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as Queen Ravena.

Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman

While each has a very different spin on the story, equally different are the costumes for Snow White. Kristen Stewarts’ Snow White costume closely matches the familiar yellow, blue and red dress from the Disney classic. In addition, Snow White is seen like never before…in armor! Taking her queue from the huntsman, Snow White trains to be a warrior, and they form an alliance to overthrow the queen. On the other end of the spectrum, the much lighter and brighter Lilly Collins’ Snow White costume is quite beautiful in blue and white.  I find it refreshing to see Lily Collins’ Snow White in this new costume. In my opinion, she is the most fair of the two.

Lilly Collins in Mirror Mirror

Unfortunately, there are no costume vendors with the license for Mirror Mirror versions of Snow White and the queen as of yet. Such a shame. However, we can still look forward to officially licensed Snow White and The Huntsman costumes for Halloween 2012. Here is your sneak peak. We will also sell the Huntsman costume, coming soon. What do you think of the new Snow White costumes. Which is your favorite?

White House Denies Existence of Aliens – But Do They Exist?

Share This!
Facebook Twitter

Do you believe that alien life exists beyond our planet? Better yet, do you believe the government knows something about life in outer space that they are not telling us?  This week, the White House responded to two official petitions demanding the acknowledgment that 1) aliens actually exist, with evidence that they have engaged the human race and 2) the US government has communicated with alien beings.

While the government denied any knowledge of extra terrestrial aliens, they did offer the names of special programs that are looking into the possibility. They are:

  1. SETI—the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence—originally started with help from NASA, it is now privately funded. Their project is to point special telescopes toward space to listen for signals from alien worlds.
  2. Kepler is a NASA spacecraft in orbit that’s main goal is to search for Earth-like planets. Its mission is to the Milky Way galaxy for similar sized plants to ours tht are within an inhabitable distance from the sun.
  3. The Mars Science Laboratory, Curiosity, is an automobile-sized rover that NASA is launching soon. The rover’s onboard laboratory will study rocks, soils, and other geology in an effort to detect the chemical building blocks of life (e.g., forms of carbon) on Mars and will assess what the Martian environment was like in the past to see if it could have harbored life.

You’ll have to decide for yourself. I can tell you aliens exist all over my company in the form of alien costumes, and questionably, some of our employees (just kidding….or am I?)

Just day prior to this news release from the White House,  I saw the IMAX movie Hubble and after seeing the amazing images of our endless outer space it is hard to believe that we are alone in a universe of billions of galaxies. Yet when you say it out loud, it sounds really silly. I’ll live a long, happy life if the closest I ever come to an ET is meeting Katy Perry.

Evil Clown Costumes a Cause of Coulrophobia

Share This!
Facebook Twitter

Coulrophobia is the medical term for an insane fear of clowns. The evil clown costume plays off this fear, making it the ideal Halloween costume. Many people are creeped out by clowns but a small population is abnormally terrified. Even the happy circus type will elicit terror.

Clowns have given us many reasons to be scared. Take John Wayne Gacy for example. By day, he entertained at kids’ parties as Pogo the Clown and by night, he was a demented torturer, rapist and murderer. Executed in 1994, now we only have his evil zombie clown to deal with. Between serial killers and horror films its no wonder people suffer from clown phobia.

Many celebrities have admitted to being afraid of clowns too. Sean “P. Diddy” Combs has a “no clown” clause in his concert contracts. Actor, Johnny Depp was quoted in 1999 saying, “Something about the painted face, the fake smile. There always seemed to be a darkness lurking just under the surface, a potential for real evil”  Even Daniele Radcliffe, aka Harry Potter, comedienne Carol Burnett and chef Anthony Bourdain suffer from coulrophobia. I feel bad for them because chances are high that they will encounter someone in an Evil Jester Costumes one of these Halloweens.

Bands like Insane Clown Posse have taken this fear to a completely new level, revolving their sound, lyrics and costumes around a “Dark Carnival” theme called horrocore. With album names like Carnival of Carnage and a tour called House of Horror, the duo also known as Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J wear “insane” black and white clown makeup. Costume SuperCenter will offer their newly licensed Insane Clown Posse masks on their website this Halloween.

Coulrophobia is very real! Halloween is when all of our deepest darkest fears come to life. Evil Clown costumes will give even the mildly frightened a full blown cased of coulrophobia.

May 14th is Dance Like A Chicken Day

Share This!
Facebook Twitter

Put on your Chicken suits everyone because Dance Like a Chicken Day is coming on May 14th.  That’s right folks. There are many reasons to pay homage to our feathered friend through dance.

This feathered foul is very important. Thanks to them, we have some of the best jokes around. Here are my top 5:

  1. Why did the rubber chicken cross the road? To stretch her legs.
  2. Why did the chicken cross the road, roll in the mud and cross the road again ? Because he was a dirty double-crosser
  3. What happens when a hen eats gunpowder? She lays hand gren-eggs!
  4. What do you get when a chicken lays an egg on top of a barn? An eggroll!
  5. See the image below. It is just for grown ups but its OK for kids to see because they won’t get it.

And wonderful recipes too. Give this one a try for Oven Baked Fried Chicken:

Marinate 4 bone-in chicken breasts in buttermilk with a pinch of salt, pepper and Cheyenne pepper for at least 4 hours or overnight. Pat dry. Dredge in flour, dunk back in the buttermilk and roll in crushed but still crunchy Corn Flakes. Bake on a wire rack at 350 until done. Yum.

Here is a video of three people in chicken suits dancing to The Chicken Dance song as well as Aerosmith, The Village People and even Michael Jackson’s Thriller. What better way to celebrate Dance like a Chicken Day than to jam-out to such a rocking variety of music.

So put on your chicken suit costume and have a ball. To all of you I say CLUCK YOU and have a funky Dance Like a Chicken Day!

Don’t Miss Katy Perry’s ET Costume On American Idol Tonight

Share This!
Facebook Twitter

Katy Perry is one of the queens of performing in costume. I just found out that she will be on American Idol tonight (4/21/2011) doing a very special one-time-only live performance of her hit ET. Why one-time, you ask? Well, apparently they costumes are so elaborate and the choreography so tricky that it would be too much of a production to do on tour. Very exciting!  The dancers will be doing a form of contortionists dancing called “bone-breaking” while dressed in very sexy alien costumes. Although Katy Perry wears several inter-galactic outfits in the ET music video, I don’t think any will be quite like what she wears tonight. You can see a sketch of it as well as sneak peaks of the dancer’s ET costumes in the video.

The following video comes courtesy of PerezHilton.com

Leave it to The California Girl to do something over the top. Honestly, I like her music and style better than Lady Gaga so I’m really happy that we will be adding a collection of official Katy Perry costumes to our Halloween costume line this year. They will be available in the next few months. In the meantime, don’t miss her performance tonight on American Idol.

April 1st is So Much More Than April Fools Day

Share This!
Facebook Twitter

Congratulations! By opening this blog you are now the winner of a BRAND NEW CAR!!  Not! Happy April Fools Day everybody! This rite of spring began way back in 1760. Every April 1st we look forward to playing a good trick on our friends and family but did you know that April First is so much more than a day for practical jokes? It is actually full of celebrations. Here is a list of all the wonderfully inconsequential things we can celebrate on this day:

  • National Fun Day – Like we need an excuse or a special day to have fun??
  • St. Stupid’s Day – This is celebrated in San Francisco, featuring the annual St. Stupid’s Day Parade. I bet this parade is loaded with people in ridiculous and humorous costumes
  • Boomer Bonus Day – this is a holiday for baby boomers over 50 who don’t like to celebrate birthdays anymore. If you have an AARP card, this is your day!
  • National Sourdough Bread Day – YUMS!
  • National Sorry Charlie Day – the perfect day if you happen to find yourself SOL. If you have even been rejected and lived to tell about it, Happy Sorry Charlie Day to you!
  • It is also the first day of National Pooper Scooper week so get out there and clear your yard of doggie landmines and pick up after your adorable pet because its messes are not so cute.

If you are the recipient of a practical joke today I hope you take in with the humor in which is was intended and if you play an April Fools joke I hope it’s a darn good one. But after all the fools are played, celebrate one of these other fun, offbeat holidays

Food Costumes Have Invaded My Dreams

Share This!
Facebook Twitter

You’ve go to hear my bizarre dream about Food costumes.  So I’ve been on a diet for about a month now and the urge to resist junk food has become overwhelming. As I eat my celery sticks and prepare my special food, the memory of potato chips and Snickers haunt me, but not as much as the Pizza Man in my dreams. I don’t mean a cute guy carrying a large pie with extra cheese, I’m taking a man in a Pizza Slice Costume, chasing me while yelling “eat me, eat me!”

The dream played out like a football game. No doubt my husband was watching sports highlights as I was dozing off. So, Pizza Man is chasing me and my escape depends on my speed along with an offensive line of assorted vegetables and fruits (yes, with legs too) blocking the pizza.   But in the blink of an eye, Raman Noodles, Twix and a Taco join Pizza. I’m getting breathless and feel me will power weakening. Halfway down the field, Orange got squeeze and Broccoli, well he just plain stinks. Just when I though all hope was lost, Banana gave them the slip and the junk food was laying on the field like a pile of garbage.  In case you are wondering, yes, this was an actual dream. When you are surrounded by Halloween costumes for a living, this is what happens).

Nevertheless, I woke up this morning victorious and 2 pounds lighter. Food costumes have helped me face my demons and stick to my weight loss GOAL!

Men in Bear Costumes Free Baby Panda – What’s Next?

Share This!
Facebook Twitter

In China, conservationists dressed  in panda bear costumes to minimize the human impact while releasing pandas to a a nature preserve. Although this may have been a necessary consideration,  it is still amusing and definitely not something you see everyday. I love animals just as much as the next person so it got me thinking about other situations in which large animal costumes could be worn for the consideration of the real animals and animal conservation.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Men can wear Turkey costumes and chicken suits to minimize the trauma of human interference while the poultry make their way from the farm to the dinner table.
  • A cowboy can put on a horse costume and wear a saddle while another cowboy rides him to show wild horses how much fun it is to be broken and tamed.
  • Rock climbers can wear Eagle costumes while scaling mountain sides so they don’t disturb the natural scenery or frighten the wildlife.

Can you think of any others…perhaps about a monkey suit, lion, tiger or even a raccoon? If so, drop us a comment and let us know. In the meantime, you can find all kinds of animal costumes for men,women and children at Costume SuperCenter.
