You love being a clown. In fact, you love it so much that your old costume is just plain worn out. It's time to start checking out new clown costumes so you can continue delighting children and entertaining all of your friends without a lull in your clowning around. Luckily, Moon Costumes has exactly what you're looking for.
What Type Of Clown Are You?
If you're a master in the art of clowning, you know that there are all types of clowns out there. If you're a classic clown, you'll love our Big Top Clown Costume, which will give you the authentic look of a clown doing his act under the circus big top. However, if you're interested in changing your image a bit, or you just want to pick up some different types of clown costumes for those...special occasions, you should check out our Carver The Killer Clown and our Evil Clown costumes. They might not be for the kids, but the adults at your next Halloween party will applaud your efforts.
Don't Forget The Accessories
Everyone knows a great clown costume has to have the right accessories to pull it off. Maybe your big red nose is wearing out, or maybe you've been meaning to invest in a pair of big red clown shoes. We've got you covered. No worries.
Before you know it, Halloween will be here. But we can think of many reasons you need a great clown costume other than trick-or-treating and Halloween parties. Clowns are just fun, and we can help you look the part. Visit our online store for everything you need!

Summer is upon us, and for all of you cosplayers, you know that means it's time to prepare for this year's Renaissance fairs. Whether you're planning on traveling out of town for a fair this year, or you know of a Renaissance fair that's going to be coming close to home, you'll want to plan ahead to be sure you have the perfect medieval costumes. At Moon Costumes, we have exactly what you're looking for.
Play the Part of the Hero
Are you looking forward to showing your date the hero that lies inside of you at this year's Renaissance fair? If so, you'll love our Valiant Knight Adult costume. It's perfect for playing the part of the hero who's fresh from battle, or who just rescued a damsel in distress. If you're interested in a costume that's a little bit more "dangerous", we can help you with that too. Our Assassin costume is one of those medieval costumes that are always a big hit with the ladies.
Play on the Fun Side
If you're more of a jokester, and you don't want a serious costume, why not choose a costume that will bring out your fun personality? Our Kings Jester costume is perfect for you, if you're looking for something that's a little more laid back. After all, you want to be comfortable, and the best way to do that is to choose a costume that fits you to a tee.
If you're ready to find a great costume for this year's Renaissance fairs, we're ready to help you do it! Just visit our Moon Costumes online store for the best selection around.

After all, nothing says "Happy Easter" to your children like Mom or Dad dressed up in a bunny costume.

In 1953, a group of college students from Pomona College dressed in their togas and put ivy wreaths on their heads. With their dorm mattresses in tow, they gathered at the home of Mark Neuman, a freshman, who lived in Flintridge. In doing so, they participated in a party that would remain a time-honored tradition in colleges and universities for many decades to come. America had seen its first college toga party.
Toga parties have become a staple on college campuses. In fact, the largest toga party, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, happened in February 2012 in Australia. Over 3,700 participants joined together in Brisbane to enjoy good food, great drinks, and play Greek or Roman-themed games.
Join In On The Fun!
You don't have to be in college to enjoy a great toga party. In fact, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt held a toga party as a joke for those who referred to her husband as "Caesar". There's no reason why you can't have just as much fun!
At Moon Costumes, we've got a variety of toga adult costumes to make your toga party even better. Women will love their Greek transformation with our incredible Greek Goddess costume. Or if you're looking for something a little sexier, our short toga costume is perfect for an alluring look.
For all of you guys, we've got great toga adult costumes for you too! You can choose between our classic Julius Caesar look, or choose something like our Spartan costume, which ladies love.
Toga parties are a blast! And we're here to make sure you have the best time possible!

Much like traditional home designs, classic cars, or a clean cut collared shirt and jeans, some costumes will just never go out of style. Year after year, new costumes make the list for most popular costume of the season, but some staples just never change. Read about three of the most popular go-to Halloween costumes of all time below and consider making them your own this upcoming Halloween season! These classics are great go-to costumes even in a pinch.
Ghost Costume – Since Halloween does have its roots in “All Hallows Eve,” which was known as a “time of the wandering dead” a ghost costume is certainly appropriate for any Halloween celebration. Ghost costumes can vary widely! They can be as simple as a sheet with some holes cut out or as complex enough to involve expertly applied makeup and a custom costume.
Halloween Witch – This costume has been done some many ways throughout the years, and all are quite fun. Whether you want to be a serious and frightening witch or an adorable “good witch” like Glenda from Wizard of Oz, a witch costume always works
Vampire Costume – Vampire costumes have been popular throughout the years in sticking with the tradition of keeping Halloween a bit ominous and spooky! For a sexy vampire to a terrifying vampire, there is always a vampire costume you can pull off!
Remember, you can put your own twist on these classics. You can do so by picking out and adding unique costume accessories. At Moon Costumes we have hundreds of great wigs and costumes accessories to help you make a classic a new look all your own.
