With Valentine’s Day only a couple weeks away, the holiday is in full swing with candy being bought, flowers being picked and love letters being written. While many couples are making reservations for two, more and more every year are instead attending, or planning, Valentine’s Day parties for couples. From a casual get together to an elaborate Valentine’s Day ball, couples are dressing up; not for dinner, but for a costume party!
Valentine’s Day costume parties, like other costume parties, usually follow a theme for invitations, decorations and, of course, costumes. While Valentine’s Day parties are not limited in the themes they use, many typically incorporate couples or sexy into the theme they select, sometimes both. This can make costume selection not just fun alone, but fun with your significant other.
When looking at couples costume for your Valentine’s Day party, try to find something which is fun for both you and your significant other. If you’re looking for ideas, why not try some classic Valentine’s Day couples costumes? There is the regal king and queen, the spooky vampire and vampira, the classic Adam and Eve or the hilarious Plug and Socket costume. Regardless of your selection, make sure to find a costume pair both you and your significant other will enjoy and fits the theme of the Valentine’s Day party.
For more mature and adult Valentine’s Day costume parties, sexy costumes can be fun and a great way to strut your stuff! Spanning a variety of genres and styles, a sexy costume can be found for any costume party theme and for either sex. For the women, consider being a naughty school girl, a sexy nurse, an innocent angel or a mischievous fairy. For the men, look at being a rough ridin’ cowboy, a mysterious magician, a lecherous devil or a playboy millionaire. No matter what your choice, choose a costume which you are comfortable in and let’s you have fun during Valentine’s Day.

With only a month until Mardi Gras, there isn’t much time left to get ready for the biggest party of the year! Originally a simple celebration the day before Lent, Mardi Gras has grown into a full blown extravaganza, complete with parades, parties, costumes, performers, masquerade balls and plenty of sweets. So, whether you’re headed to the New Orleans celebration, throwing a traditional King’s Cake party or attending a masquerade ball, Mardi Gras is a time to enjoy life to the fullest. For all those participating, here are some helpful tips on what to wear during Mardi Gras, so you can join in on the fun!
If you’re celebrating Mardi Gras on the street, either at home or afar, be prepared for a color explosion! Colorful and decorative costumes are the choice of the day, typically in the traditional colors of Mardi Gras (green, gold and purple). In addition to costumes, you’ll also find plenty of people just adding a few accessories to join in on the fun. Masks, beads, makeup and anything else appropriately colored will fit right in with the Mardi Gras theme. Just look at your local Halloween store for what they have, or check online. So live a little and add some flair to what you’re wearing for Mardi Gras!
Aside from the excitement and partying of Mardi Gras in the streets, this holiday is also known for it exquisite and extravagant masquerade balls. If you’re lucky enough to receive an invitation, or just happen to be throwing one, you’ll want to make sure you dress to impress. Masquerade balls are typically formal, black-tie affairs, but the real fun comes from the masks. A long standing, Mardi Gras tradition, masks are worn to conceal your identity so you aren’t restrained by who you are, but instead only by what you want to be. Masks come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and styles, each designed to conceal and decorate the person behind it. While many make their own Mardi Gras masks, those without time or artistic skill will find plenty of masks available for sale. Just check out your local Halloween store or shop online. Regardless of where you get a mask, be sure to find one you like and truly reflects your Mardi Gras spirit!

Hey Halloween fans! For those who haven’t heard, Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2 has just been released on Blu-Ray and DVD. Immediately following the events of the first movie, Michael Myers continues to chase after his little sister, Laurie Strode, killing anyone in his way. While not his best work, I think fans of Michael Myers and Rob Zombie will find this gritty, gory film well worth it. If nothing else, get ready to see brand new Michael Myers masks and costumes this Halloween, straight from the silver screen.

With the holidays behind us, and a whole new year beginning, we can finally take a moment to relax…and start working on this year’s Halloween costume! It’s never too early to start thinking of costume ideas and getting all the pieces together for something great. If you are looking to go as something classic this year, why not consider looking into Scary Clowns?
A staple costume in the Halloween world, Scary Clowns provide opportunity for endless variety. In addition, these costumes can be as simple or complicated as you like, while still looking the part of a Scary Clown. When tackling a costume like this, there are a few different avenues to take depending on the amount of time/effort you can spend, how much you money want to spend, the look you are going for and what’s available to you in your area.
The most important part of any Scary Clown costume is the face. While most costumes require some sort of elaborate clothing to pull off a look, Scary Clowns focus attention to the face, typically with make-up or some sort of mask. For those willing to experiment, and have the time to do so, make-up is the way to go. Before looking at what make-up you might need, always try to draw out the face you want or find a picture of a Scary Clown you want to recreate. From this you will know what colors you are looking for, as well as what you might need to apply it all. Regardless of what you decide on, you will always want to start with a Clown White Creme Foundation. You can apply it thick, to get a traditional clown look, or apply it thin so the make-up looks old, worn and cracked. With creme foundation in place, figure out a plan to apply your other colors and patterns. Use whatever make-up applicator you want, although foam wedges seem to work best for this sort of make-up work. If this is your first time trying this out, or if the Scary Clown face you want is particularly complicated, make sure to practice applying before Halloween. Make-up is a great tool to use, but can take some time getting used to. For those who do not have the time or desire to deal with make-up, a number of Scary Clown masks exist for your Halloween needs. Ranging from creepy to grotesque, Scary Clown masks can be found at brick and mortar stores, as well as online. Make sure to purchase early, especially if ordering online, to ensure the mask fits and looks the way you want. Nothing is worse than wearing a mask you cannot see or breathe well in.

Once in a while you hear of Halloween masks being used to disguise criminals in a robbery. Then I wonder if they used a mask they bought, or stole from us.
Here is a look at the robber clown mask used in the Dark Knight movie.
Some people may think it’s weird to get a tombstone for Christmas, but we know better. Over the years our hardcore Halloween customers are adding Halloween decorations, masks and costumes to their list for Santa. Imagine waking up Christmas morning and under the tree sits one of our ghoulish props staring back at you. Well that’s become a reality as more and more of our customers are ordering and getting Halloween decorations for Christmas.
I am proud to announce that FrightCatalog.com will be launching our own exclusive product line in 2010. Pictures of the first ghoul will be available soon. Hopefully we will get some of the pics up next week.
