Christmas parties are set this week and if you are still wondering what costume or fun Christmas outfit to wear that are easy to prepare, maybe you can find some ideas in the previous Christmas costumes that I and my friends wore in our parties.
For Character or Anime or Popular TV series or Movie theme, you may dress the Simpsons family. The hairdresses and eyes are made of foam materials, the necklaces are made of styrofoams. For the three Lisa Simpson’s outfits, we simply bought our red dresses except for the Lisa in the middle who went to the tailor for her yellow and red dress. We bought yellow face paint from National Bookstore to achieve the yellow Simpsons look.
For Latin America theme, we were dressed in Peruvian costumes. We chose Peruvians as their traditional costumes are colorful and fun to make. For my hat, I simply bought a 50-peso standard Rizal-like-black-hat from the public market and adorned it with a piece of the same cloth I used for my shawl scarf. My wonderful dressmaker made my shawl-scarf and my lovely skirt, the fabric of which I bought from the public market. My black blouse and belt are simply from my closet while my pair of slippers came from the ukay ukay (thrift shop) for only 30 pesos.
For Intergalactic or Stargazing or Space theme, this costume is an almost total DIY (do-it-yourself) concept. The blouses and shoes are fro my closet. The headdress and necklace are made from scrap cartons which we sprinkled with gold glitters. The base of the headdress is a headband.
For Rave or Disco or Cosplay theme, this is a simple and easy to throw together look. Headband is only 20 pesos and was bought in the public market. The hot pink hair wig with neon green highlight is from Divisoria and was bought at 3oo++ pesos. The neon pink tee shirt is from a thrift shop bought at 150 pesos. I partnered the shirt with denim mini skirt and kicks from Converse.
What is more important in choosing your Christmas costume or outfits is that you are comfortable and you feel good with what you are wearing so you can enjoy the rest of the party night. 🙂
