Halloween parties, birthday parties, costume parties, school parties, reunions—you name it, there is always that occasion when you need to have a costume. The celebration can never be complete without the fun of portraying different characters just by means of using costume ideas that make everything worthwhile. Who said costumes are only meant for kids? Whether it is your kids who need to dress up with fancy costumes or it is you who will be joining a party, it is just the right thing to have a costume that can reveal the true character in you.
One great costume idea that you can have is an Aladdin costume. Remember that Disney character who is greatly associated to a magic carpet, a magic lamp, a genie, and a princess named Jasmine? You got it right! That very Aladdin is someone you can portray for your party. Renting or buying your own costume for the party may not be your thing especially if you want to be as thrifty as possible. There is nothing to be ashamed of because you have all the power to make your own Aladdin costume and save a great deal of money. Learn how to make your own Aladdin costume and see for yourself how everybody will appreciate your efforts on creating your very own costume.
- First of all, you need a simple top and pants for your own Aladdin costume. You can have a white long sleeved shirt for the upper part of your costume. For the pants, you can have a pair of white sweat pants. It would be best to have a bright-colored vest that you can put on top of the shirt. If you think you can handle the temperature of the place where the party is set to be hold, then you can eliminate the need for an undershirt. A plum vest is all you need, and needless to say, that little skin that can be displayed to the public.
- Use a colorful rectangular shawl for the belt of your Aladdin costume. Fold the shawl into three parts lengthwise and then wrap the shawl around your waist. Do not forget to tie the two ends of the shawl on the front side to form a knot.
- For the hat of your Aladdin costume, you can simply have an empty plastic bowl or you can choose to wrap your head with a white cloth. Decorate your hat the way you desire. It would be better if you can have a scarf that has a turban style.
- You can accessorize your costumes by means of using some props to make your portrayal more realistic. There are lamp toys that you can use to beckon the genie (of course, this is based on the tale of Aladdin). You can also have a sword toy to create a sense of bravery and strength.
Do not be afraid to be creative when it comes to making your own Aladdin costume. But then again, stick with the basics of an Aladdin costume so that other people will not have you for a mistaken character. Enjoy your party with the confidence of having a creative approach on wearing a character costume.
