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 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.
