Costume Accessories

Sometimes the accessories make the costume.

Can you imagine Thor without his hammer? Santa Claus without his fluffy white beard? Or Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz without her red ruby slippers? These characters — and many others — rely on accessories to tell their unique and entertaining stories.

No one wants Halloween day to roll around and have no one recognize their costume because they failed to use all the right parts. However, it’s also disappointing to buy an item that you can only use one time.

In order to make the most of your Halloween costume accessories, try going for options that you can wear with other costumes, outfits, and a variety of year-round events. The following infographic outlines 10 different types of accessories that you can take advantage of all year long.

Our Costumes Featured on True Blood!

by on Monday, July 9th, 2012

Costume Craze costumes were featured on last night’s True Blood! Yes, in the fifth episode of Season 5, our Deluxe Obama Masks made an appearance during the show.

True Blood’s production team purchased several Obama masks from us earlier this year, and we’ve been waiting in suspense for them to appear. We wondered why True Blood would need Obama masks… Would it be for a scene with a political rally or protest? It is an election year, after all.

Nope! It turns out these masks were for bad guys. The kind of bad guys who shoot guns from the back of a pickup truck and record video of their crimes. It was a pretty scary scene, but I won’t give away spoilers.


This isn’t the first time our costumes have appeared on True Blood. Last year, during the finale of Season 4, we see the character Holly wearing our Deluxe Fairy Costume. She looks very beautiful!

It’s so great to be a part of such a popular and exciting show!

True Blood airs Sunday nights on HBO.
