It’s almost the 4th of July! Watermelon, fireworks, ice cream… I know you all want to pull out your stars-and-stripes, but there are other ways to dress for the 4th of July, for less. That’s why we went to HalloweenCostumes.com, because it’s not just about Halloween there, but about costumes for every occasion (plus, they are doing a great deal for free shipping with the code FREESHIP65).
Here are a few easy ways to get festive:
All Versions of Uncle Sam
Many of us who have lived in small towns know how easy it is to grab a spot on a local business’s float or throw candy to the kids at the town’s independence jamboree. The easiest costume to put together is an Uncle Sam getup, with striped pants, the hat, and the very necessary beard.
Statue of Liberty
Let’s say you’re running out of time and need something that will wow your neighbors and friends. Drape yourself in a green toga and top it off with a headpiece, and fashion a fire-free torch if you can spare the time. Or, alternately, you can buy the whole thing right here.
Maybe you aren’t a huge fan of the overtly political costumes, or you need something a little less irreverent, and a little more on the silly side. We recommend the eagle theme -- it’s cute, and those shoes alone make for some great photo ops.
Not a costume person? This straddles the line between full-on fancy dress (founding father costume, anyone?) and slick party gear. A printed suit with a matching tie will balance the festiveness of a red, white, and blue theme. It’s party time.
Matching Costumes for the Family
So let’s say you choose an eagle costume… but what about the kids? A lot of the costumes at HalloweenCostumes.com have matching little versions to go with the big ones! In addition to the too-cute Baby Bald Eagle getup, there is a miniature colonial outfit for both girls and boys, colonial general ensembles, and even matching Benjamin Franklin outfits.
This category is slightly random, but it fits right along with the “Novelty Printed Clothes” theme. Plus, flapper ensembles bridge the gap between out-there costumes and bold daytime dresses.
Are you on a serious budget? We recommend getting the Mount Rushmore costume to save oodles of cash (while also looking awesome).
