Flapper dress costumes are smoking hot! They are always among the most sought after gangster outfits quite simply because they are graceful and elegance yet bold and beautiful. A woman cannot help but to feel sexy in a cute black fringe flapper outfit.

These costumes are designed to mimic the fashions of the roaring twenties; specifically the incredible flapper girls that ruled the night. Shimmering, sequined, or fringed mini dresses that are sleeveless and have a drop waist appearance dominated the 20s costume scene. A flapper girl wanted to stand out in a crowd; she wanted to be noticed and, in this hot looks that certainly won’t be a problem.

Toe Tappin' Flappa Adult Costume

This amazing outfit has just recently been released and is sure to be a huge hit at any Halloween or 1920s costume party.

The white microfiber strapless dress features the classic drop waist look and is dripping with brilliant sequin trim. This unique flapper outfit also features removable should straps for those who do not like straps, a sparkling sequin neck piece, matching sequined feathered headband, and a movie inspired cigarette holder.

This alluring look is made from a stretchy spandex/nylon blend to add to your comfort and is available in adult sizes from small to extra-large! Any shoes will work nicely with this outfit but some women will elect to add a cute pair of silver high heels and long white stretch gloves that each to the elbow!

Gatsby Girl Adult Costume

When most people think about what a flapper girl would have looked like during the roaring twenties and early thirties, they would probably think about an outfit similar to this Gatsby girl costume.

This delightfully charming, yet completely alluring flapper girl costume will have the guys lined up three deep just to get a chance to dance with you! The classically inspired black sequined flapper dress simply drips with fringe and casts sparkles all across the room as you move and groove to the sounds of jazz and the blues.

A matching headband and ultra-cool black fingerless gloves complete this enticing look spectacularly. If, however, you want to take this costume to the extreme you could add a 72” feathered boa rather inexpensively. Additionally, the skirt is rather short and many women elect to wear a pair of cute ruffled tanga shorts underneath for added precaution.

Flapper Elite Collection Adult Costume

If you are a bit on the daring side and want a costume that shows off all the hard work you did in the gym over the summer then this incredibly sexy flapper dress costume will certainly accentuate your ‘assets’.

This roaring twenties costume includes a red and black mini dress, a string of classy faux pearls, and an understated, yet extremely beautiful, feathered headpiece. This look would look amazing when paired with your favorite men’s gangster outfit.
Flapper girls of the 1920s ultimately changed the face of America forever. No longer satisfied with staying at home and taking care of the house, these bold young women craved excitement and attention. Square, almost boyish looking, dresses replaced tight fitting clothes as the trend away from conformity continued to spread to every speakeasy across the United States.

The raw sex appeal and coolness factor of this storied period of our history will also ensure that the flapper girl costume will always remain one of the most popular costume choices each and every year!

Best Lady Gaga Halloween Costume Ideas

Lady Gaga Halloween Costume Ideas

If you want to stand out from the rest of the skeletons this Halloween, why not take inspiration from this year's most shocking diva – Lady Gaga. Her outrageous outfits make fun and fabulous Lady Gaga Halloween costumes which will never be forgotten. So to help you stand out like Gaga this Halloween we’ve listed three of her most memorable outfits for you to choose from.

The Lady Gaga Meat Dress

 Arguably Lady Gaga's most famous outfit, the meat dress is a guaranteed to be a hit at the Halloween costume parties of 2011. Unfortunately, using real meat to re-create the outfit may be difficult to do (if not a little unhygienic). Therefore it may be better to create your own fake meat by pinning various strips of meat colored fabric (pink, red and brown would probably work best) to a basic undergarment. Gaga's dress was wrapped around her, and little longer at the sides than the front and back. She accessorised the outfit with a meat hat and meat covered shoes.

The Lady Gaga Egg Costume

Gaga caused controversy yet again when she arrived at this year's Grammys incubated inside a giant egg. This outfit would probably the most difficult to recreate but if you're up for the challenge then it's worth a shot!

You could possibly buy a readymade egg outfit online, but most of these are in the form of a fried or 'deviled' egg. Therefore for a more authentic Gaga look you would be better creating the outfit yourself.

 One way to do this is to attach fabric to a hula hoop in order to create the round shape of the egg. You can then team this with a shocking blonde wig and over the top makeup to recreate the authentic Gaga look.

Lady Gaga Nun Costume

Lady Gaga liked the nun outfit so much she recreated it twice in her own unique and outrageous way.  Both outfits are quite controversial so only wear if you dare!

For the first outfit Gaga daringly teamed a white habit with a see through rubber dress. She had a cross of white tape covering each of her nipples and the monster claw (made famous by the Monster Ball tour) on her left hand.

However if you want an outfit that is a bit more conservative then you could try the second version of the costume. This costume is also a lot easier to create as Gaga simply wore a black habit with a white circular.

If you'd like to see some of Lady Gaga's Halloween outfits  in more detail then there are plenty of pictures of  Lady Gaga's costumes online.

Harry Potter Halloween Costumes for Muggles

There is a great choice of Harry Potter costumes available. A defining series of books for our generation, Harry Potter

Harry Potter Gryffindor Robe

has found a loving and dedicated audience through numerous books, movies and games, and has always been a staple of the cosplay circuit and Halloween costumes. While the last installment was back in 2009, the promise of two movies for the final installment prove that Harry Potter is still popular, and no doubt will be next year and beyond. It’s good, then, that there are so many Harry Potter costumes on offer both official and unofficial.

Harry Potter Costume Ideas

There are countless different Harry Potter Costume Ideas available from the varied and imaginative universe J.K.Rowling created, however all us Muggles tend to long to be wizard students at heart, and so the most popular are the school uniforms, specifically the Gryffindor robe. For example, the Harry Potter Deluxe Adult Robe replicates the film with long black length, red lining and the Gryffindor seal on the chest. The same is present in the children’s options, allowing a whole family to be part of the famous Hogwarts House.

If, however, you want to avoid the cliché, one way to show Hogwarts pride while also showing originality is to come dressed up as a Quidditch player. Once again the Gryffindor team is the most popular, with the distinctive long red robes with inclusive hood and front lacing, Gryffindor crest and golden racing stripes. Complete with Quidditch child’s helmet and goggles and a broom, you’re set to catch that Snitch!

For more villainous character such as the death eaters for the Dementors or even You Know Who himself (Voldemort), you should stick to dark robes. The Officially licensed Death Eater costume comes complete with tatty black robes and frightening skeletal ribs and mask for both adults and children. A black robe plus a terrifying mask, or the complete officially licensed costumes for adults and children will complete the snake-faced Voldemort, and the elaborately masked followers of Voldemort – the Death Eaters- and brilliantly shown through such costumes as the Female Death Eater Bellatrix Child Costume. You can truly bring the scary spirit of Halloween alive with these evil costumes!

Harry Potter Costume Accessories

The list of Harry Potter Accessories is almost endless, but here are a few that you might want to get your hands on this Halloween:

-Quidditch: For Quidditch fans there is the child’s Quidditch helmet, goggles, Harry Potter Quidditch Kit (which includes shin and forearm protectors), Harry Potter Broom, and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Golden Snitch.
- Hogwarts Students: For those dressed to attend Hogwarts there are numerous magic wands available, Harry Potter Glasses, a Gryffindor tie, Gryffindor scarf, pointy wizard’s hat, lantern, and even Hermionie Granger’s wig!

Getting creative

Of course, it’s easy to also make your own costumes for Harry Potter this Halloween. A black robe and a patch of your chosen house make the school robes, and a scarf with the school colors can be made by anyone with some basic knowhow of knitting. If you choose to be other characters, such as Hagrid or the teachers, different colored robes, and accessories such as fake beards can truly give them a unique and authentic look. Experiment and see what you come up with – that’s half the fun!
