What you need to know about wearing a dated costume
If you want to choose a great costume, there are certain things that you should definitely consider that could not only make your life a lot easier but that will also ensure that you have a great experience wearing your costume. When choosing a stylish costume it is easy to lean on the creativity of the costume to the point that you quite easily forget a lot of the other important requirements that you may be looking for in a costume. For example, in as much as your costume should be creative, you don’t want it to be too creative to the point that no one knows what your costume is all about let alone remember what the costume was about after you told them just a few minutes ago. This is just one of the things that you want to avoid if you want to have a great costume for whichever event you have in mind. For a more elaborate explanation on this and some of the other things that you should also keep in mind, keep reading.
As mentioned above, creativity is important when choosing a costume but it is not everything. In as much as you would want to have a costume that draws some attention, and probablyeven sparks conversation and therefore breaks the ice for you and for other people, you want to have this done in a appositive way. The last thing that you would want to have is a costume that probably polarises you and other people at the costume party or worse yet is just not recognisable to the point that you do not look like you are in touch with everyone else around you. In short, you need to make a judgement call for the costume that you want based on the crowd that will attend the party that you want to attend. In most cases it is better to go with a costume that is easily recognisable such as an elegant 1920s costume.
Whether you choose a 1920s costume or a more creative or modern costume for that matter, one thing that you definitely want to avoid is a costume that is generic. In short, the opposite of choosing a costume that is too creative is choosing a costume that lacks any creativity whatsoever. This is just as bad and should definitely be avoided. There are lots of great costumes that you can choose from if you put in just a little bit if effort and if you have run out of idea, you could always ask for help either from your friends and family or from the store advisors or internet enthusiasts with similar interests as you do.
