If you want to ensure that your costume doesn’t embarrass you, then you need to think about the practicality of the costume.
When purchasing a costume, there may be some things that you may not have anticipated that could embarrass you when you actually wear the costume at the event that you have in mind. A lot of times, a costume idea may look like a great idea on paper or in your mind but when it comes to the practical aspects of the costume, you may find that the costume falls short of what you may have expected or maybe there are some details that you may not have thought about, instead of letting these blunders embarrass you, it is a good idea to think about all the potential blunders before you can buy the costume. With this in mind, below are some of the things that you should certainly pay attention to if you want to make sure that the costume that you wear in not an embarrassment to you.
First and foremost, you need to have a costume in mind that is easy to pull off if you have never worn a costume to a party before. In essence, easing into the whole culture or process of purchasing a costume and wearing it to an event needs to be taken in baby steps so that you can have some awareness of what is required of you. Some of the best costumes are actually simple costumes that can not only be easily identified as being a costume of a certain character but that can also be easy to wear and move around in. If you can think of the typical 1920s costumes, almost anything that you choose to wear including a suit or a dress and the right shoes and hat will be a great costume that is not too far removed from what you would wear in this day and age. Costumes that you should certainly avoid will include e costumes of monsters or animals or mascots that do not have the typical human parts that allow for easy movement, breathing, and hearing. Of course if you are not able to move around comfortably nor see where you are going, you are bound to get embarrassed by something that you will be forced to do sooner or later.
If you do not choose a 1920s costumes for example and you decide to go for a generic costume instead, then you should make sure that you try and differentiate the costume as much as possible, but within reason, from other costumes of the same kind that other people are bound to wear. It can be quite embarrassing not to put any effort into choosing a costume and instead choose a costume that several other people may actually wear in the exact same way. One thing that you also have to remember when you wear a costume is that the makeup that you apply should be easy to reapply.
