If there's one thing that makes a great costume even better, it's costume accessories. With the right costume accessories, you can easily turn an "okay" costume into a memorable one that will be the talk of the party or convention. Without the right accessories, your costume probably won't make the impression you hope it will.
Without The Right Accessories...
Just imagine for a moment...Santa Claus without his beard. A clown that lacks a large red nose. A vampire with no fangs.
Get the picture?
You can improve the entire look of your costume with just the right accessories.
Think Outside the Box
What's your costume idea? We have some incredible accessories at Moon Costumes to give it those perfect finishing touches.
Undoubtedly, one of the most popular costumes of all time is Elvis Presley. And you don't have to visit Las Vegas to see a guy in an Elvis costume. Why not add even more authenticity to yours with a great pair of Elvis Presley glasses? Or maybe you're thinking ahead to New Year’s Eve and you'd like to do a little something different with your outfit this year.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a child whose face doesn't light up when the big, jolly guy walks into the room. Chances are, your children go to sleep every Christmas Eve, listening carefully for any sounds of reindeer hooves on the roof of your home, only to fall asleep dreaming of the goodies Santa will leave them on Christmas morning.
If this sounds familiar to you, why not start a new tradition for your family this year? Holiday costumes like our beautiful Santa Claus costume can bring even more joy to your family's Christmas morning.
Our holiday costumes are made to look as authentic as possible. So your younger children can stand amazed that this Christmas, Santa didn't just eat the cookies, drink the milk and take off in his sleigh. Your older children will be amused and delighted that you took the time to make their Christmas morning even more special.
And you? You'll have a great time playing the part of Kris Kringle! What could be better than that?
