The Queen of Halloween has no problem digging beneath the surface to access her inner child or her inner superhero, bad girl or even vampire. Some people might need a little more help to get into her other persona- which is where the fantasy costume comes in. Once you wriggle into the skintight leather of a Catwoman outfit or donned the Supergirl cape, you just feel more heroic. If you want to feel like another person, it starts with looking like your own best version of them but adding your own twists and flavor while you are at it.
Fantasy costumes are perfect for a party, an event or even for a night in with your special someone. There are very few rules to follow when it comes to the fantasy that you create or the fantasy costume that you wear to make it perfect. It starts with something you have conjured in your head, a glittering taste of magic that you want to set free and share with your partner- and how hard you work to bring that fantasy to life is entirely up to you.
Fantasy Costume: Rule One
Shakespeare told us, “to thine ownself be true”. If hubby or boyfriend has been begging you to don a dominatrix costume and call him a bad poodle boy, you have to think carefully. Do you really have that role in you? Do you really want to wear anything leather and a little scary? Are you a softer, silkier kind of gal, inside and out? Do not wear a fantasy costume that does not fit your sense of self or makes you uncomfortable. If you are wearing the costume outside of the home, keep the whips and chains inside of it.
Fantasy Costume: Rule Two
Wear what fits and is comfortable. If you oof and pant because you are not breathing, if you have not bent over for fear that you will split your seams or worse, because you literally cannot, your costume is too small. If you are tripping over hems and hiking up your pants every two seconds, your costume is too large. Either way, the costume does not fit and remember, there is no fantasy that starts with the need for a large pair of scissors and an oxygen mask.
Fantasy Costume: Rule Three
There is no rule that both people have to be in costume at the same time for a party for two, nor do the two have to match at a party for more. So, my fantasy is for my guy to dress as Darius Kasprititus- but I want to be ME for that one. His fantasy is for me to be a medieval village girl that he (dressed as a highway man) rescues. I think I can accommodate him on that one.
