Dressing up in Christmas party can be less expensive than you think

‘Tis the season to be merry, and part of the fun this Christmas season is attending Christmas parties, be it office parties or those with friends and family. What makes parties and gatherings extra special is the effort that people put into preparing for them—and dressing up in Christmas garb is no exception.

If you are one of those people who feel that celebrating Christmas would not be complete without going all out on their party costumes, this guide is for you. In today’s world where every centavo counts and nothing beats being practical, this guide will help you put together a Christmas costume that is reflective of the season’s cheer and merriment without necessarily breaking the bank.

Assemble and Accessorize

If you are in a pinch, because you do neither have the resources to buy or rent a complete costume or have the time to order online, the best option is for you to assemble your own! Basic pieces such as a plain T-shirt and leggings or pants are all you need. Just accessorize with Christmas pieces to complete the Christmas look.

Simple accessories can complete your Christmas look

For women and older girls. A white shirt or blouse can be paired off with red leggings or pants. Accessories for this set can be a wide red or black belt and a Santa hat. Another option would be a red shirt or blouse, with red leggings or pants and a wide white belt. A Santa hat would work with this ensemble as well.

For men. Go for a red polo-shirt or a long-sleeved buttoned shirt, black jeans, and a Santa hat. Kids and kids-at-heart can get a hold of those Christmas-themed headbands with various designs, like reindeer horns, Santa, candy cane, and the like.

You don’t have to buy a new shirt or blouse if you have the right colors in your closet. Just grab your favorite red or white top and you’re good. The same goes for the leggings and the pants.

Santa Suits for Adults and Kids

What is Christmas without Santa Claus? Most parties usually have this common theme come Christmas time, and that is to dress up in Santa suits. Nowadays, it is not just the men who can dress up like Santa. Even the kids and women can be little and Mrs. Santas with the many available costume options to choose from.

DIY by checking your kid's closet.

For the kids. Costumes come with a little more variety than those for the adults. They can be more colourful and go beyond the usual red and white combination. Even babies have special Christmas-themed costumes available for them.

For adults. A Santa suit usually comes with the red-and-white fuzzy hat and suit. A beard may accompany the costume. Women wearers, on the other hand, can opt for the sexy version of the suit, which can have a mid-length or short-length skirt.

Tips for Shoppers!

Alex and Alexa Costume Boutique (@alexandalexaconstumes) can be found on Facebook and has a long list of costumes for rent for men and women. Costumes are categorized according to themes and gender.

If it’s really a costume party you’re attending, you’ll be happy to know that they also have superheroes and villains costumes for men and women, which include even the latest ones that appeared in the big screen. They have Deadpool, Wonder Woman 2016, Ironman deluxe and jumpsuit (plus Iron Girl dress and jumpsuit for the ladies), and Spiderman and Spiderman Jumpsuit (plus Spidergirl jumpsuit for the gals), just to name a few. The rest of the categories are Movies & TV, Disney, Video Games/Anime/Cosplay, Uniforms/Occupation, Famous People, Halloween & Scary, and Plus Size.

Did not find the right category for you? Well, actually they still have these types of costumes that are kind of a mix of everything else: Historical, Greek & Romans, Renaissance, Masquerade, Animals, Book Characters, Decades, and Blast from the Past. And that rounds up all the costumes they have for adults.

Price inquiries can be made through the online shops’ Facebook pages.

There you have it. If you have a tight budget this Christmas but would like to join in the fun of coming to your holiday party in a Christmas costume, you still can do it! Only, you have to start reserving that costume you’re renting or rummaging through your closet as early as now. December has kicked in and you have not much time—whether you’re renting or putting together your own costume—because, hey, it’s almost Christmas!
