It’s Never Too Late to be in the Mardi Gras Spirit


Traditionally, Mardi Gras (which is actually French for "Fat Tuesday"), refers to the day before Ash Wednesday.  It's a time when people celebrate by indulging in everything they'll be giving up for the season of Lent, leading up to Easter.  Depending on where you live, Mardi Gras celebrations can extend for months.  For example, in Mobile, Alabama, the festivities kick in during the month of November.  There are countless social events and parades to attend, and the party continues up until Ash Wednesday.  In other parts of the country, Mardi Gras is a three-day celebration leading up to Lent.

Regardless of what the customs are where you live, it's never too late to have a party celebrating Mardi Gras.  At Moon Costumes, we have just what you need to have a great Mardi Gras party.  Costumes are an essential part of this unique celebration, so feel free to go a little crazy with your attire.  You can never go wrong with bright colors.  Why not choose an exquisite
mask to match your favorite glittery dress?

Regardless of what you wear, accessories are a must to create the perfect "Fat Tuesday" look.  You'll find a great selection of
beads in our costume shop to highlight anything you wear.  Feathers can bring even more sparkle to your look.

At Moon Costumes, you'll find everything you need to have a great Mardi Gras party.  Whether you're attending a celebration at a friend's house, or you're planning to hold your own "Fat Tuesday" bash at your home, we can help you
celebrate it in style.  After all, you only live once, right?

Masks and Hats and Wigs Oh My

Sometimes all you need is a mask, hat or wig to make a great costume while wearing whatever you feel most comfortable in. Other times, they’re the finishing touch that makes a good costume into a great one.

Under our Masks, Hats and Wigs section, you’ll also find categories like “Fun and Funky” and “Wacky and Wild”, which include items from all the categories, sometimes in combination!

For example, in Fun and Funky, you’ll find things like the Sorceress Deluxe Theatre Headwear--a gorgeous mask with glitter detailing and a matching glamour style wig.

In Wacky and Wild you can find, among other things, the very strange Little Brother Wig that will have people saying to you “No wonder you have a splitting headache—there is a freakish little guy growing out of your head.” It’s an eye-catching, conversation-starting piece that allows you to wear whatever you want.

Of our various Hat sub-sections, we’ve got Hats from around the world, Crowns and Tiaras (and who needs to wait for a reason to wear those?), Top Hats and Derbys, Witches and Wizards, TV/Movie Hats, and also career hats, historical hats, holiday-related hats, and hats for kids.

If you’re looking for a mask, you’ll find feather masks and half masks along with masks of aliens, animals, elderly people and skulls, along with horror, humorous or political masks, or masks from TV & Movies.

And wigs include Moustaches and Beards, Hair Pieces and Bald caps, Sideburns, Goatees and chest hair, TV & Movie wigs and wigs for kids, men, women, or unisex wigs.

So basically, we’ve got you covered…at least your head.

More Ways to Celebrate Independence

Just to squeeze in a little bit more 4th of July fun, here are some other ideas to use costumes to make Independence Day more enjoyable!

Check out our Historical Hats in our Masks, Hats and Wigs section and you can tip your hat to different periods of American history this 4th of July:

  • Honor the original Americans by wearing a Native American-style headdress…
  • A Coonskin Cap can evoke Davy Crockett, the king of the wild frontier….
  • A Pioneer Bonnet reminds us of the time before we were settled, though it might make you long for Thanksgiving, as will the Puritan hats for men and women and a whole Pilgrim costume for ladies….
  • A Colonial Hat fits right in with the period of struggle for independence…
  • A Civil War hat could help you say that independence is worth fighting for… In blue or gray, and we’ve got baseball caps too….
  • We can help you become a president too: a stovepipe hat could be part of an Abraham Lincoln costume with our Lincoln half-mask and Amish beard...
Or check out our Political Masks section to find an elephant or donkey patriot hat, a Reagan or Obama mask, or Hillary, George W., Bill Clinton, Gov. Schwarzenegger, or George Washington …

Our Beards & Mustaches section can help you look like Mark Twain with just a wig and a mustache though people might think you’re the colonel from Kentucky Friend Chicken if you’re not careful… Or wear your own jeans, denim shirt and cowboy hat, and then use a western mustache to finish out the look.

Finally, in our Team Mascots section, you can dress as the American Bald Eagle! We’ve got four different costumes!
