Warm Costumes for Street Festivals
Warm costumes are essential for outdoor festivities. In a lot of places Carnival falls smack dab in the middle of winter. Brrr! As qualified costume experts we’re familiar with this problem, so we’ve put together a few tips. You’ll see that there are plenty of warm Carnival costumes to keep you from freezing. We have warm costumes for adults, warm costumes for kids and nifty warm costume accessories.
Warm Costume Tips and the Right Clothing for Carnival
In order to keep from catching a cold at the street festival, keep these two rules in mind (regardless of what kind of Carnival costume you’re wearing):
1. Except for the face and hands, all body parts should be covered.
2. Wear layers! Think: onion. For women who want to show a little leg, pantyhose are an excellent choice.
Many costumes are wide enough to wear warming clothes underneath them. Highly popular on Carnival, clown costumes are roomy enough for several layers underneath. For less voluminous Carnival costumes, thermal underwear is your best bet. Hats, hoods and Carnival wigs keep your head warm.
Warm Carnival Costumes
Our CozySuits are fun warm costumes for an open air Carnival celebration. Super spacious, these animal costumes for men and women are comfortable one-piece jumpsuits with more than enough room to wear your street clothes underneath – just the right costume for a chilly (say it isn’t so!) freezing Carnival. A sassy hoodie dress is a great choice for women looking to get naughty at the party. With long sleeves and warming material, all you need is a pair of pantyhose to stay warm.
Hot Looks – Warm Costumes for Ladies
Now things are really heating up – with even less material. Carnival costumes with fake fur and fur costume accessories give Carnival costumes for ladies the right amount of warmth. Here hosiery, gloves or arm warmers are enough for the cold – as long as you’re not dealing with negative double digits. Our leg warmers & shoe tops promise even more leg warmth.
Warm Carnival Costumes for Kids
We’ve created a warming kids corner on our Warm Carnival Costumes for Kids page. There you’ll find the right warm costume for the Carnival parade, one that your little ones will like, too!
Morphsuits – Cool Costumes for Cold Weather
You don’t always have to wear something underneath to stay warm. With our skin-tight Morphsuits (there are Kids Morphsuits too) this is pretty tricky. They are very stretchy, allowing you to wear thermal underwear underneath without a problem. Instead of wearing your street clothes underneath, you can wear them over it! The effect is amazing and with a little creativity the sky’s the limit. Why not wear a color-tastic suit from the popular OppoSuits collection over your Morphsuit!? Whoooaaaaa.
Warm Carnival Accessories, Hats and Leg Warmers
As mentioned earlier, Carnival hats and Carnival wigs are fantastic for keeping your little party head warm in chilly Carnival weather, just as leg warmers and fluffies are great accessories for street festival costumes. And another public service announcement from us: if your fingers get cold easily, have a look at our gloves and arm warmers.
