Some kids wish that Christmas was everyday, and while adults are glad that it’s not (because holiday shopping should only come once a year), it is possible to bring a little bit of Christmas to Halloween with Christmas costumes. Of course Christmas costumes could be worn on Christmas too, for school plays or just good ol’ fashioned holiday cheer.
Other than of course Santa Claus, one of the most popular x-mas costumes is Christmas elf costumes, for kids and adults. Elf costumes are usually pretty funny thanks to big curly shoes, silly long ears and funny hats. While Christmas elf costumes look adorable on children, they’re hilarious on adults. Reindeer costumes are also very popular, especially for pets. Dog reindeer costumes are cute and easy, since they just require an antler headband. Naughty Christmas costumes for women are very popular for ladies. Christmas costumes for women might include elves, reindeer or Mrs Claus, or even a sexy Santa costume.
If you’re looking for cheap Christmas costumes you could always make one out of spare fabric. You could add some white trim to a red jumpsuit to make a Santa costume… and of course stuff a pillow under your shirt for a big round belly. Or sometimes you can buy them fairly cheap during off season times of year when Christmas costumes are for sale.
Christmas costume ideas don’t just involve Santa and his elves, but could include Christmas tree costumes, ornament costumes or costumes based on Christmas movies. A Christmas Story can inspire a lot of great costumes from Ralphie in a bunny suit to a leg lamp costume. Of course A Christmas Carol is another great source of inspiration for X-mas costumes with characters like Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Future. No matter what your source for a Christmas costume idea, it’s fun to get festive around the holidays.
