1950s Halloween Costumes
Go back in time to one of the best eras for dancing and just jiving to the music with an awesome 1950s costume from Spirit Halloween. Be a pinup sweetie for a totally heart-stopping look. Throw it back as a diner guy straight out of a greasy spoon. Stop by the drive-in theatre and cuddle up with your best guy or girl and watch the new feature film on the big screen. This era of girl groups, all things pink for the ladies and dashing men lives on forever in these looks. Poodle skirts actually got started when a woman named Juli Lynn Charlot made one at home from felt. They quickly took off and became a 50s fashion trend that was totally in demand. We have these iconic looks in pale pink and black as well as a more daring fuchsia, including plus size 50s costumes. Accessorize with a doo wop wig or polka dot sunglasses and you’re all set to look like a classic blast from the past.
Elvis Presley not only gave us rock classics like “Don’t Be Cruel” and “All Shook Up,” he also gave us a stylish image of the King that’s permanently part of pop culture. If you’re more so into rock and roll, then an Elvis white jumpsuit costume with a high collar and belt will definitely get those hips shakin’ at the Halloween party. The whole family can go retro when you dress your baby in an Elvis costume in a mini version of the jumpsuit, complete with boots and hat that let everyone know they’re rock royalty.
