What Costumes Teach Us About Style

Halloween is coming soon. With only a few weeks left to prepare, it’s normal to start thinking about fancy dressing and fun treats. While Halloween is generally perceived as an American celebration, it has long spread across the world. Some European countries run Halloween-related commercial actions and events. While the traditional trick or treat runs organized by and for kids remain mostly a US-based event, you can find some neighborhoods all around the world, creating mini versions of it. 

What does Halloween have to do with Thailand? Well, it’s simple: The best parties are in Thailand. If you are looking for an unforgettable Halloween dress-up party, you can be sure that Bangkok is the place where it’ll happen. So, you can expect a mind-blowingly awesome safe party, especially at a time where we all need to clear our minds from the worries of a global pandemic. 

As shop offers for Halloween costumes are multiplying, now’s the time to consider how dressing up affects our everyday style. Did you know that your party costume can also change the way you experience fashion in your day-to-day routine? Here why:

Glasses showcase your personality

Adding a pair of glasses can completely change your face. It’s the preferred Halloween props and the easiest costume accessory to manage. But the same principle applies to your everyday life. A pair of glasses can turn you into a fashion idol, a serious business person, or a romantic geek, to name but a few. The shape and color of your frames add a playful dimension to your outfit. So why limit yourself to fun glasses one night a year when you can have fun everyday? Admittedly, it’s worth pointing out that the typically plastic fake glasses you wear at Halloween may not be suited for day wear. But they can let you experiment to find your style.

Wigs can transform your look

Are you turning yourself into a vampire? You need a long dark wig for the show! 

Do you prefer to dress up as your favorite cosplay character? A wig is an essential part of your gear! 

The bottom line: Wigs are not only fun to wear, but they are a safe way of changing your hairstyle. But you can also invest in a quality wig to wear on special occasions. Many artists around the world have a number of wigs they use to change their looks overnight. If you don’t want to damage your hair with excessive bleaching, a wig is the ideal solution to transform your appearance. 

Playful colors

One of the preferred costumes for Halloween is the creepy clown. It’s full of bright colors, and at the same time, there’s a scary edge to it. While you may not want to wear a colorful clown costume every day, you can learn from your costume choice. If you are naturally attracted by vibrant and bright dressing up outfits, why not inject a little more colors to your everyday wardrobe? 

It’s silly to assume that Halloween costumes are something that you wear only one night during the year. They are filled with stylish tips and cues to define your style. If you gravitate naturally towards wigs, why not try one to change your hairstyle? Do you always buy a bright costume? Perhaps your wardrobe needs more colors. There’s so much to learn about yourself when you think about your favorite dressing up outfits!

Two Fun Ways to Wear Wigs: Find Out for Yourselves

Wigs are covering for the head made from either artificial or real hair. Wigs have certainly evolved in terms of use and the people who use them. From England judges and barristers of law, wigs have found their ways to the masses. Many people use them for various reasons; people in the fashion industry frequently change hairstyles like they change their clothes. They are able to do this by using wigs. We’ve seen Kim Kardashians, Kylie Jenner, and Gwen Stefanie go from long, straight, jet-black hair one day, and then to short, curly, blond hair the next day. Insane, right! But, yes, they are able re-invent themselves in a blink of an eye, by using wigs. Some use it to cover baldness, while others to give their natural hair time to rejuvenate. Aside from these, there are other fun ways to wear wigs. They’re no longer just for the famous. And one doesn’t need to have a reason to justify wearing a wig. Nowadays, whenever people feel it, they wear it. Below are two fun ways to wear wigs.

Some Fun Ways to Wear Wigs

  1. Parades. Institutions and organizations hold annual parades whether to mark a special event, or a part of a holiday tradition, or for everyone to see a special person. During these time, people going in the parade would surely want to glam up. They would want to show their best self to the onlookers. In Thailand, this is a sure thing. Paraders always look their best. They get up so early in the morning to get their make up done and their hair styled. Most often than not, wigs are used to get that updo hairstyle, that curly hair, that human hair weave, or human hair weave bundles with closure. Adults and children alike look forward to special events because they love glamming up. Moms who are into wigs have so many to choose from. There are even human hair wigs for black women.

2. Cosplays. Cosplay is a thing of today. With the popularity of Japanese anime comes cosplay, and it has rocked the entire world. Cosplay is the practice of dressing up as a character from a movie, book, or video game, especially one from the Japanese genres of manga and anime. Here dressing up is a totally new, whole different level. It doesn’t detail the costume alone, but with it comes the make up, the props, and of course the hairstyle. Cosplayers, most of the time, use wigs to achieve the look.

5 Reasons Moms Should Wig It Out

Why not,  right?

A wig should be a must in any Mom’s wardrobe.  We’re not talking about clown-like wigs. We’re talking about wigs that actually look and feel like they’re your own hair. Yep they have gotten so advanced these days, thanks to modern technology. These beautiful,  fashionable accessory is popular among top Hollywood celebrities like Gwen Stefani,  Beyonce,  Kylie Jenner,  and of course Lady Gaga. It’s nothing new for fashion models  as well. Coco Rocha, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid are just few of them.

Now Mommies, here are reasons why we need this in our wardrobe.

Protection for our natural locks.  As hair is definitely our crowning glory,  keeping it healthy is important. So protect them from all sorts of chemicals and stress. Whenever a need arises to get your hair done, and especially if it involves putting on hairsprays, styling gel, or whatnot, pause and get that crowning glory in a box instead.

Let’s give our natural hair a break.  Is there a mom here who has not had hair waxing,  hair rebonding,  hair curling, hair stretching, hair oil treatment,or even a simple trip to the salon to get her hair done in one point in her life?  Probably, none.  I had been blessed with strong,  thick,  jet black hair but with all those fuss about hair-rebonding and waxing,  well,  I gave in and had them once.  My hair has never been the same again.  And aside from this, age,  stress,  and neglect have taken its toll. If you and I are on the same boat, subjecting our hair to further stress is way too much.  Let it rest and rejuvenate,  and wig it out instead.

They’re easy and affordable.  Putting on a wig is easy peazy.  While it takes hours to go to the salon (well because of terrible traffic), and another few hours of excessive shampooing and conditioning,  and chemical-inundated hairstyling, it only takes minutes to put on a wig.  So you’d still have more time to do some other important Mommy stuff.  And also,  wigs are affordable,  some are even cheap.  That one time hair rebonding I had cost me $60, while wig online although some could cost you over a $100 there are many which costs as low as $10 only, and mind you these can be worn again and again whenever you feel like it.

Luxury of choosing the perfect style.  One issue I oftentimes encounter in the salon is the incompetence of some hairstylists to get it done accordingly and properly.  On the other hand, wigs are perfectly cut, colored,  or styled.  So, wigging it is the perfect solution.

Lastly, Moms can be fashionable too.  The taboo on wearing wigs is simply gone,  gone for good. Individuals of all walks of life are into wigs.  The reasons for wearing could vary but whatever the reasons are,  wearing a wig is just simply the new in thing nowadays.  If they are in, why can’t we?

Love this!

..and this.

This is one fashion trend that Moms ought to have.  It is safe,  saves us time,  and could boosts our confidence without hurting our hair and our pockets.
