Get Festive in Costume for Mardi Gras And St. Patrick’s Day

By January 4, 2011 In the News No Comments

Christmas and New Year’s have past. Now comes the long wait for more fun-filled costume wearing holidays, Mardi Gras and St. Patrick’s Day.  Mardi Gras 2014 is on March 4th so now is the time to shop for Mardi Gras Costumes.  And just a couple of weeks after that, we celebrate St. Patty’s Day. March is typically a ho-hum month weather-wise so 2 party weekends will really spice up an otherwise cold and rainy month. Two awesome costume holidays in one month is great news for the costume industry. Its a good thing we’ve got something to show for it. Here is a look at the best new costumes for Mardi Gras and St. Patrick’s Day.

Mardi Gras Costumes:

When it comes to Fat Tuesday, costumes are fun but accessories are king. High on the list are masks and beads because they are part of the holiday’s two biggest traditions. Masks are essential to masquerades parties which are a major part of Mardi Gras festivities and beads are the most popular and prized possessions collected at parades on Bourbon Street and elsewhere across the country.

St. Patty’s Day  Costumes

You get one week to recuperate before its time to enjoy the luck of the Irish. Hold on to any green beads you have left over from the week before. They’ll come in handy. St. Paddy’s costumes and accessories make everyone Irish for the day. Leprechauns and sexy Irish lasses will be lining the bar at your local pub this March 15th to raise a pint or a shot of whiskey and toast to brotherly love.

Getting dressed up for any holiday is fun, easy and inexpensive when you know where to shop. Costume SuperCenter has it all and more but order early because this cold and rainy March will be red hot in costume sales.
