What was one of your favorite things to do as a kid when you were looking to get into a little mischief? If you were like many kids, you probably snicked into your parents' closet and started pulling out clothes to play dress up. Be honest. How many times were you caught trying to balance in your Mom's high heels?
Here at Moon Costumes, we'd like to help you keep the kids out of your closet! We have a great selection of kid’s costumes that are great to have on hand for when that creative, yet mischievous spirit sparks in your kids.
The Many Uses for Costumes
Let's say your kids enjoy pretending that they're animals in the zoo. Lots of kids play that game, but they seldom have the costumes to make it realistic. Why not pick up a few of our animal costumes to help them get their parts down right? Or, what if your kids love pretending to be superheroes? We have plenty of costumes to help them bring out the hero inside of them too.
Our costumes are great for dress up, but they're also high quality. That means your kids will have an easy time figuring out what they want to be for Halloween too.
Custom or Ready Made
If you haven't already, be sure to check out our great selection of costumes for kids. You can have your costumes custom made, or you can also choose some that are ready to go. The most important thing is that you're encouraging their imaginations, and that's one of the best parts of being a kid!

Final Fantasy has been a hit with everyone who loves role playing games for many years. It's hard to believe that it got its start in Japan in 1987. However, it's grown incredibly and will soon have 40 installments, which are more like volumes than sequels.
The Popularity of Final Fantasy
Every volume of Final Fantasy has a different storyline, with unique pieces that weave them all together. Final Fantasy players can play the game on almost any device, and some versions are even available on mobile phones. Of course, if you're a fan of Final Fantasy, it's difficult to argue that there's a more interesting character than Cloud Strife, who has appeared in several versions of Final Fantasy VII.
If you're hoping to pull off a unique character like Cloud Strife, here at Moon Costumes, we'd love to help you do it in style. Cloud's costume was made for fighting, and our custom-made cosplay costumes will ensure that we get the fit just right for you. However, you won't want to skimp on the other parts of his persona, which included his sword and his spiky blonde hair. If you're feeling adventurous, you might even want to try on a pair of bright blue contact lenses!
The popularity of Final Fantasy has grown throughout the years, and with so many different ways to enjoy it, it's not surprising. There have been movies made, video games, and many novels written around the many characters and storylines the role playing game has featured. If you're a fan, be sure to check out our online store for your costume today!

All around the world, people are getting excited about 2014's cosplay convention season. With so many cosplay costumes to choose from, it's difficult to make a decision; especially if you're hoping to "WOW" your friends with a different look this year. Here at Moon Costumes, we've got everything you could ask for, but we still say that Dragon Ball Z is never out of style when it comes to anime cosplay.
Why Dragon Ball Z?
You'd have to be hiding under a rock the last 20 years or so to not understand how much influence Dragon Ball Z has had in the anime culture. The show has affected every aspect of anime, and even those who don't consider themselves to be fans of anime have loved it. Is it because of the awesome fight scenes that seemed to last several episodes? Perhaps it was the theme of heroism that's been woven through the storyline. Either way, Dragon Ball Z is a classic, and we have the costumes to help you celebrate its success.
Anime Cosplay Costumes
What was your favorite character from Dragon Ball Z? Maybe you loved Chi-Chi, or perhaps you were a big fan of Goku Gi from the Dragon Ball Evolution movie. Our custom-made costumes will ensure that you look the part at every upcoming cosplay convention you plan on attending this year.
2014 is sure to be a great year for cosplayers all around the world. We always look forward to this time of year because Moon Costumes has everything you need to perfect your look. Check out our online store and place your order today!
Wednesday, January 22, 2014 0 CommentsNow that winter is here, and the holidays are over, it's natural for the "winter blues" to set in. Perhaps you're planning on attending a few cosplay conventions in the spring and summer, but they seem a long way off. Costume parties aren't just for Halloween, and the winter season is the perfect time to host your own costume party.
Themed Costume Parties
If you love cosplay, you probably have some cosplay costumes you can bring out a little bit early to wear at your costume party. You might even have a group of cosplayers who would love to have their own mini convention at your house. If not, why not choose another theme? If the "winter blues" are really getting you down, why not pick a tropical theme? If you want to encourage everyone to choose a humorous costume for a comical theme, that's a great idea too! The most important things are to have fun, and lift everyone's spirits.
Don't Forget the Details
No party is complete without the right favors and accessories. When you shop at Moon Costumes, you'll find everything you need. From the lighting to the decorations to complete the look of your home, why travel all around town looking for the right accessories when you can get everything easily, in one place?
Costume parties are fun any time of year. Why not get some friends together, and see if you can come up with a great theme that you can all really get into? Make sure you check out Moon Costume's online store for everything you'll need to make your party a great success!

Now that the holidays are over, cosplayers all over the world are getting ready for the next season of cosplay events. With so many cosplay costumes to choose from, it's important to make the right selection to be sure you stand out from the crowd this year.
Custom Made Cosplay Costumes
Cosplay is more than just dressing up like your favorite character. True cosplayers understand that it's an art form, and choosing a costume isn't something that should be taken lightly. If you want to really make a great impression at your upcoming cosplay conventions, why not have a cosplay costume custom made for you? Our custom made cosplay costumes are as authentic as they come, and you'll be thrilled with the results.
Choosing Your Character
What's the best way to choose a character if you're getting a custom made costume? The good news is that these costumes aren't pricey at all. So, if you have a few different characters in mind, you can have both of them made for you, and still save a lot of money. If you decide to only have one costume made for the year, there's no need to worry about whether or not it will last. Our designs are made to stand the test of time.
Are you ready for cosplay season? If you need help making a decision, we'd love to hear from you! Be sure to check out our great selection of costumes, and to make sure yours is truly unique, please take advantage of our custom made costumes, for a cosplay costume that will be the best one you've ever owned.

Saturday, December 28, 2013 0 CommentsWith Christmas right around the corner, you're probably busy making all of your family's holiday plans, shopping for those all-important must-have gifts on everyone's list, and thinking about the delicious treats you'll be baking. However, in all of your festivities, it's important to remember your family pet this time of year.
Nothing says "Merry Christmas" like a Santa Claus costume, or another holiday costume creation. Our Reindeer Dog Antlers are the perfect gift for your favorite pooch to help him get into the Christmas spirit, right along with the rest of the family. The kids will be excited to see your pet sporting his new antlers, and he'll love feeling so special, and helping your family celebrate this important holiday.
While your dog might wear his antlers at home, and even to some family parties, it's a lot of fun to take him other places too. Many dog owners look forward to being able to take their pets for a visit to see Santa Claus, and many veterinarians or animal shelters hold events for animals to visit with St. Nick just for that purpose. You'll get some incredible pictures, and your dog will love spreading some holiday cheer.
Here at Moon Costumes, we think that this is such a special time of year, and costumes can make Christmas even more special. We love opportunities like this one, when the entire family can get in on the fun. Make sure to pick up your dog's Reindeer Antlers, and check out our selection for everything you'll need to make this year's Christmas truly special. Merry Christmas!

Tuesday, December 10, 2013 0 CommentsWhat are your plans for the fast-approaching Christmas season this year? Perhaps you're having a family dinner party to celebrate before the holidays, or maybe you're traveling out of town on a well-deserved Christmas vacation. Either way or even if your plans include something else entirely, Christmas costumes are a great way to bring your celebrations to life this year.
Entertain the Kids
When you're planning a big, family get together, you're probably going to have a gift exchange of some kind. Nothing makes gift exchanges better than when Santa Claus himself or one of his elf helpers gives out the gifts. Our Santa and Elf costumes are perfect for the holidays. They're very realistic too, and a great way to entertain the kids at any party. You may even want to break the costume out again as a memorable way to hand out gifts on Christmas morning.
Festive Office Parties
In the past, you probably looked forward to office parties mainly as a way to take a break from the day to day grind. They're not usually all that fun, but at least the food is good and you get to get out of the house for a night without the kids. Why not approach your boss to discuss a different approach to this year's party by adding a visit from Santa? Costumes make any holiday get together a lot more fun, and you might even be asked to dress up every year from now on.
Whatever your holiday costume needs are Moon Costumes is there to supply all of them. Relax, dress up, and enjoy a wonderful holiday!
