The Oscars Party Costumes, Formal Wear & Party Supplies

2017 gave us some great costume worthy movies. Think La La Land, Fences, Hidden Figures, and Hell or High Water. We searched through various halloween costume sites and were disappointed to find most 2017 hit movie characters’ costumes failed to make it into warehouses. But don’t worry! We have combed through hundreds of products and have gathered various combinations to fit the costumes of some of our favorite movie characters and would make perfect Oscars party costumes. 

One more thing >> if you continue scrolling down we have included movie inspired costumes from past years including the always popular Lobby Boy Costume from the Grand Budapest Hotel.

Halloween Piñatas

Halloween Piñatas

Kids love piñatas almost as much as they love candy.  So combining a piñata with Halloween trick or treating – how perfect is that!  We love these Halloween Piñatas – a scary black cat, a giant flying bat, a witch on a broomstick, an adorable Frankenstein, and a great carved pumpkin.

Halloween Piñatas are not only perfect additions to any party they may be a great alternative for those of you not so into trick or treating, begging for candy by knocking on strangers doors.  The fact is that some children really do find the holiday of Halloween scary and overwhelming so inviting a few friends over to your house for a costume party may be just the answer.  Send out Halloween invitations, serve Halloween theme food & drink, play Halloween games, offer cute Halloween party favors, have a costume fashion show, and end the festivities with breaking the piñata so everyone walks away with a bagful of candy.  This way you also have complete control over the candy and don’t have to comb through pillow cases full of yucky unwrapped candy handed out by strangers.

Have a safe Halloween and party hearty!

Box Costumes

Rubik’s Cube Costume

I just saw this costume on the Today show and thought, wow — easy and fun!  You can create it using one box or three boxes askew, solved or unsolved, large or small, with arm holes or without.  Wear tights or black pants underneath.  You can get as fancy as you want.  If you have truly waited until the last minute — simply spray paint your boxes black with quick drying paint.  During the 15 minutes it takes for the paint to dry completely, cut out your  squares of colored paper.  Now glue or tape them to box(es) being sure to leave space between the squares so it appears they are outlined in black.   If you don’t have boxes at home your local postal store or office supply store  generally stock boxes.   If you don’t have a paper cutter or glue gun consider investing in one for the next time!
