We all know about Accessorizing. It's something we do in our daily lives. Whether it's with Jewelry or a cool Hat. We like to add just the right thing that goes with what we are wearing. Some Accessories, of course, are a must... One dare not leave the house without his/her Purse or Wallet. By the same token... Dracula dare not leave his cave without his Vampire Teeth, and Harry Potter should not leave his dorm room without his GLASSES.... or his Deluxe MAGICAL WAND (complete with light and sound). One thing I'm VERY sure of... Harry BEST not forget to put that SCAR on his forehead before going out. What WOULD people think? Below is a little Scar and Make-up kit. (Hint: The Scar on Harrys forehead is the ONE mark that absolutely identifies the boy as the infamous "Harry Potter" :-)
Accessories are the ADDED touches that are needed to complete any look or borrowed Identity. Be they Fairy Wings or a Fairy Godmothers Magic Wand... or if you need Benjamin Franklins Glasses... or A Civil War Soldiers Sword... Beaded Belts and Boots and Top Hats and Crowns or Tiaras. Hopefully, these pages will take you down the path to find exactly what you need to complete your costume.
I hope to provide a range of Accessories that go from the very "Play-like", to the very "Authentic" looking for those concerned with accuracy in their Costuming. It is to this point that I have provided yet two MORE "sub-categories". One category for Halloween Accessories... which shall be accessories more in the "Fantasy" or "Pretend" realm. The other category for Historical Accessories shall be things more "authentic" ...at least in the LOOK of them. Look for each category on the left menu under "Accessories".
When your look is completed, PLEASSSSSSE (but I won't beg :-) Send me a PICTURE for my Costume Photo Album here or enter one of our upcoming Contests for Best Homemade Costume. Share your artistic creativity with everybody here.
