Mardi Gras Costume Ideas

Mardi Gras is french for “Fat Tuesday” which is symbolic to events of Carnival celebration. It’s a big celebration in New Orleans with several parades. Dressing up in costumes and masks is the oldest Mardi Gras tradition, and lately Corsets have found their place in these costumes.

People use their creativity in designing their own costumes to be different from the others and incorporate corsets in them.

Sexy Dinosaur and Dragon

Sexy Dragon

 

By now you’ve pretty much seen a TON of DIY Halloween costume ideas from us, and believe me, they are so much more fun to make than buy readymade at the store! I truly believe that the most fun of Halloween is at the getting ready part! Some of the costumes we’ve put together have been fun, sexy, silly and like our last post, pretty hilarious. If you’ve learned anything by now, it’s that you can make anything sexy. You can even become a sexy Donut by wearing a pair of beige or brown leggings, a gold or yellow corset, and wrapping a pink chiffon scarf around your neck that you’ve bedecked with tube beads to look like sprinkles. Voila, sexy donut! And hilarity ensues!

This costume is one we haven’t yet come up with (don’t know how this one got missed!) but our Emerald Green Satin Corset can be paired with the popular “mermaid leggings” but instead of seashells in your hair, add a couple of spikes or dragon headband and boom you’re a dinosaur! Or lizard! Or dragon! Long nails, lizard-y earrings can complete the look. All you need is a green sequined embellished clutch and a pair of sequined black heels and BOOM you’re a magical reptile!
