Obviously we don't ALWAYS require a Holiday Costume on Holidays. However, If you are one who enjoys getting suited-up for an Occasion, most party goers and Hosts/Hostesses will say it is fine... "The more in Costume... the more festive it will be." The proper thing to do, if Costumes are not required or requested, is to ask your Party Giver before-hand, JUST to be sure it's OK.
Halloween is the BIGGEST and most widespread "holiday" for donning your favorite Persona. That is why it has it's VERY OWN Category to the front of these Webpages... HOWEVER, There ARE other occasions when one may wish to don a Costume. In the Sub-Categories below I will talk about a few other occasions, Holidays, etc. and hopefully I can point you a way to find just what you're looking for in your Costume Needs.
I will also have a few pages for "Fantasy and Fictional Character Costumes"... since they are such widespread and constantly growing Categories that I will have my hands full trying to keep up with who the newest and grooviest Sci-Fi Hero is and what the ugliest villian under Chicago looks like! "EGADS Batman! Let me borrow your car would ya?"
So dive right in my friends. Find what your heart desires. If you don't find it through these pages please don't hesitate to let me know. Coletta [at] Costume-Works.com (don't forget the dash (-) after "costume".)
