If you love playing paintball or airsoft, you know how important it is that you have the right outfit. Whether you love to play every weekend as a part of a league, or you enjoy it once in a while, these two sports require the right attire in order to help you play the game well, and remain safe as you play.
For the serious paintball and airsoft players, wearing sweats just won't do. You'll enjoy the game better if you invest in clothing that will bring you to a new level of excellence as you play. You'll also add value to yourself as a member of your team. Camouflage costumes like our Navy Seal Adult Costume are the best choice for paintball and airsoft because they help you remain stealthy as you play. A great camouflage costume can mean the difference between winning and losing.
Safety is vital when playing paintball or airsoft. The ammunition in these games (the paint and the pellets) can be rather painful when they strike the skin. So, it's important to wear clothing that will offer you as much protection as possible. Our U.S. Army Ranger costume offers you some protection in areas you'll need it the most, such as the knees and in the chest. Even though it's recommended that you wear additional layers beneath these costumes, you'll look the part of a great soldier and remain safe.
Do you have a paintball or airsoft game coming up? Be prepared with the right outfit. Visit our Costume Shop Online shop to see our incredible selection.

It's a common misconception that costumes have to be reserved for big cosplay events, costume parties or Halloween. In fact, at Moon Costumes, we think there's never a bad time to incorporate a costume into your life. We can think of a few ways you can put your love of a good costume to use that you might not have thought of before.
Whether you're employed as a nanny or you sometimes get stuck babysitting your niece on a Saturday night, a well-chosen costume can be the difference between boring and fun. If your babysitting charge has a favorite cartoon character, why not dress up as her hero one day as a surprise? You could even act out an entire little story together with you as the star. Mom and Dad would probably love to see a video of your creative production, too.
Adventurous Double Dates?
You can only go out to dinner and a movie so many times before it begins to get dull. Why not team up with another couple and wear one of our great couple’s costumes for your next night out? The four of you will have a great time, and if you're daring enough, you could even try going bowling or playing miniature golf dressed in your new costumes. You'll catch everyone's attention while you create amazing memories together.
Can you think of any more ways to creatively integrate costumes into your everyday life? At Moon Costumes, we love the art of dressing up and becoming someone else, even if it's only for a little while. Visit our online store to see our incredible collection!
