Why Costume Parties Are Fun

By: answerout


If you've ever gone to a costume party, then you know it's pretty much the best thing ever. You get to dress up as someone or something else and not have to worry about being judged by anyone. But why are costume parties so fun? They're fun because they give everyone the chance to be someone else for a night -- no matter what kind of person that might be. 

You don't want to just wear some random outfit; you want to become something new! That's what makes costume parties so special: They allow us all an opportunity to step into someone else's shoes (or paws or fur) and become something completely different from who we normally are.

Everybody loves a costume party.

Okay, maybe not everyone. Most people love costume parties, but some find it difficult to put together an outfit. A lot of men have this issue and end up wearing a suit, claiming to be a whole range of Spy characters, Men in Black or a top-notch lawyer. But if you really want to enjoy the costume party with everyone else, there are some fun mens costumes that you could try out.

You could wear a groovy Hippie costume, fully equipped with a wig and flared trousers. Or an authentic Western sheriff costume, ready to take on the bandits at high noon. Why not wear a costume that makes you look like a chicken is giving you a piggyback ride? Those options are more fun than your typical suit. It’s the reason why everyone loves a costume party.

In this day and age, it’s also pretty easy to get a fun costume. With online shops like Smiffys, you can choose from “all the themes that you would expect, from funny to outrageous and some sexy ones too.”

Step into someone else's shoes 

A costume party allows you to become someone else for a night. You can be a superhero, a character from your favorite book or movie, or an animal whose behavior and characteristics you admire. This can be fun both because it gives you the chance to try something new and because people will treat you differently when they see what kind of animal (or person) you are dressed as.

A great example of this is the case of Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With The Wind: when she dresses up as a soldier and goes into town on leave before going back home, everyone treats her with respect because they think she's brave enough to fight in World War I; however, if they knew that she was really just pretending then maybe they wouldn't have been so nice!

Costume parties are also fun outside of Halloween.

You can have costume parties for any occasion, from the most formal to the most casual. A Halloween party is fun, but so are other costume parties!

Consider a New Year's Eve party where everyone wears costumes that reflect their aspirations for the coming year. Or maybe you'd like a birthday party where all guests wear their favorite colors or themes from their childhoods—what fun! 

Consider having an office holiday party themed around your company's logo or mascot; who wouldn't want to dress up as their favorite animal? Or maybe you'd like a graduation celebration where each graduate creates and wears whatever outfit they imagined themselves wearing when they got their diploma!

The endless possibilities are only limited by your imagination (and budget).

Costumes are a great way to express yourself and have fun. They can be a way of turning your idea into reality or simply allowing you to explore different aspects of your personality. If you enjoy exploring new things and dressing up for Halloween, consider throwing an event where everybody dresses up in silly costumes!
