Pin Up Costumes
Pin up costumes are a popular choice for women who have an affinity with the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s eras. Pin up costumes can be worn for a variety of events including costume parties, burlesque performances, or even a night on the town if you’re looking to go for an innocent yet classic look with a hint of seduction.
Pin up costumes are typically inspired by iconic “pin up” stars. They consist of basic pin up styles from icons such as Marilyn Monroe or Bettie Page, while others take a more burlesque or rockabilly approach, similar to that of Katy Perry or Dita Von Teese. These women give a modern, fierce touch to the classic pin up costumes and outfits.
With the wide variety of online boutiques specializing in pin up costumes, clothing, shoes and accessories, it is easy to channel the look of these women. If you love the style of Katy Perry but don’t know where to find such spectacular duds, check out Pin Up Girl Clothing or Miss Hussy Clothing. These stores offer an array of pin up, retro and vintage styles that can transform your day look and give it a pin up feel, or create a full blown pin up costume with a sexy halter or corset top, elegant flowing skirt, back-seamed pantyhose, and sky-high stilettos. Other popular pin up costume boutiques include Starlets & Harlets, Dismantled Fashions, and Whirling Turban. If you’re looking for a military-inspired pin up costume, check out Pony Maedchen, an adorable pin up boutique with navy, army and anchor-themed pin up costumes and outfits.
The perfect pin up costume is not complete without the confidence and attitude of a true, classic pin up girl. It takes a woman who adores and is confident with her body, whether she’s an XS or XXL. The beauty of pin up costumes and fashion is that they are designed to embrace women of all ages, shapes and sizes. There is no “one size fits all” associated with pin up couture. Lastly, complete your outfit with some dashing red lipstick, a swipe of black cat-eye liner, and elegantly curl and volumize your hair.
