Springtime is the Right Time…For Costumes!

After the winter thaw has passed, temperatures are on the rise, flowers begin to bloom and birds are chirping in the trees, we know that spring has arrived. Alongside these signs of new life in nature come some of the best Costume holidays of the year. St. Patrick’s Day is one day when it’s easy being Green. Anything with a Shamrock design is in fashion and Leprechauns are among the most popular character looks for adults or kids. Spread the luck of the Irish to friends and family on March 17th with St. Paddy’s Day Decorations or perhaps a bit of green food dye in a beverage or two. The Easter Bunny will be hopping around a little early in the season as egg hunts and assembling jellybean candy baskets are on the calendar for Sunday, March 31st. It’s a religious holiday so disguises of a Biblical Shepherd, Jesus and Mary are appropriate as well as the full Rabbit Mascot suits. With plenty of Party Supplies to choose from adorned with bunnies and tulips, this is a particularly colorful time to celebrate with loved ones. The very next day is April Fools’ Day and a funny costume or Jester outfit fits the bill for anyone who wants to incite laughter or just be silly in general. Earth Day falls on April 22nd so this is a holiday for Fairies, Mother Nature, the Jolly Green Giant and any recycling-friendly looks. The beginning of May is all about Cinco de Mayo so prepare for this festive occasion with a serape, sombrero, Mexican or Spanish outfits and corresponding chili pepper decorations. Combine these annual events with big upcoming movie releases like Jack The Giant Slayer, Oz The Great and Powerful, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Jurassic Park 3D, Evil Dead, Scary Movie 5 and Iron Man 3 and it’s clear that this spring is jam packed full of opportunities to dress up in costume!
