Need help with your costume this year? Not interested in buying an expensive but cheaply made costume you’ll only wear once? Chicastic has all kinds of great ideas and tips so you can have the best costume whether you’re going as a super hero, a legion of the un-dead or anything in between, with items you can wear well after October 31st!
After years of being considered just a “geek thing,” Star Wars is now hotter than ever with the highly anticipated opening of “The Force Awakens.” Han Solo, the Millennium Falcon’s resident hero and bad boy is a simple costume to construct. Start with our open front cardigan in navy blue. It mimics Solo’s vest in a more feminine way.Pair with dark pants and and an off white top and you’re pretty much set. Create you own Princess Leia using our chiffon skirt in white and a flowy white top, instead of the cheap costume store version.
Are Zombies more your thing? Fan of the Walking Dead? If you’re crafty, add a pair of Angel wings to this top in black, for a zombie slaying Daryl Dixon look. If you are more interested in being a Zombie, make your own fake blood by adding a few drops of red food coloring and one drop of blue to corn syrup and stir (add more color if needed). Once you apply it to the areas of the skin desired, gore it up by adding coffee grounds to those areas.
Storybook characters are always a great choice for costumes. Because they so are recognizable while also having many different interpretations over the years, you can easily put your own spin on them while still being recognized. Looking to do a sexy version of any of these characters? Then our corsets are right for you! You can be Tinkerbell OR Peter Pan in our new emerald green satin corset. Or try the same style but in light pink for Glinda from the Wizard of Oz, or in silver grey for the Tin Man.
