Leprechauns have appeared in legends and fairytales for over a thousand years. Although some details have changed throughout the centuries, most of the world is familiar with the version that we know and love today. We usually picture miniature men wearing green suits, tall top hats, and shoes with gold buckles.
Whether you believe that stories about leprechauns are based on fact or fiction, you can’t deny that they’re certainly entertaining! These (allegedly) magical beings have become a symbol of the Emerald Isle and a trademark of St. Patrick’s Day. So, if you’re looking for something special to wear for this spring holiday, you should try a leprechaun costume! At the very least, it will reduce your chances of getting pinched!
Adult Leprechaun Costume
Just because you’re all grown up now doesn’t mean you can’t believe in magic! Perhaps you had great faith in Santa Claus as a child, and even if you’ve gotten wise to characters like him, you still like to think that the world is full of possibilities. Spread the magic to another holiday when you don a leprechaun costume for St. Patrick’s Day! Whether or not you think the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow exists, you’ll still have fun as one of these spunky icons from European folklore.
Women's Leprechaun Costume
Most legends that mention leprechauns always refer to them as “little men”, and never “little women”. But if you want to dress like the female version of these little sprites, we think this lack of lore might be to your advantage. It sounds to us like you don’t have to follow any rules! Write your own stories and create your own lore with a women’s leprechaun costume this St. Patrick’s Day. You can accessorize your outfit to match your unique taste and decide how your version of a lady leprechaun looks!
Sexy Leprechaun Costume
We firmly believe that there is a place in every holiday for sexy costumes. You should be able to strut your stuff any time of the year! You already know exactly how to work it in revealing Halloween costumes, and the sexy elf ensemble you showcased at Christmas is old news. But now it’s spring and you need to add an outfit to your wardrobe to bring you a little luck on St. Patrick’s Day. That’s where a sexy leprechaun costume like this one comes in handy! No matter how you decide to celebrate, you’ll feel like the luckiest leprechaun on the Emerald Isle when you don one of these costumes.
Deluxe Green Leprechaun Costume
Leprechauns are known for being mischievous, so it doesn’t surprise us to find them in the middle of a tradition involving pinching everyone not wearing green. If you want to be extra protected from painful pinches this St. Patrick’s Day, try something like this deluxe leprechaun suit! You’ll be able to avoid the panic of trying to find a speck of green on your outfit when you’re sporting the color head to toe! Besides, with an ensemble like this, you might be mistaken for one of the fairy folk themselves, and then you can be the one doing all the pinching!
Kids Leprechaun Costumes
There's something magical about holidays when you're a kid. The simplest Christmas gift can spark an unfathomable amount of joy. They anticipate Valentine's Day for weeks before it comes, and some plan their Halloween costumes months before the actual night of trick-or-treating. We think that magic should extend to all holidays, including St. Patrick's Day! One of the easiest ways to get into the spirit of the season is with a great holiday costume! So, check out our selection of kids’ leprechaun costumes and get your little one excited for spring!
Kids Leprechaun Suit
Halloween isn't the only holiday that your kid can celebrate with a costume! They might love to dress up as the Easter bunny in the spring or one of Santa's reindeer in the middle of winter. Now they can add another holiday costume to their repertoire with a kids leprechaun suit! And of course, they're not limited to wearing it just one day a year. This outfit doubles as a Halloween costume and could even be used for dress-up play in any season! Your child is sure to feel a little extra lucky no matter when or where they don a leprechaun costume.
Kids Charming Leprechaun Costume
If you have a little prankster on your hands, you have plenty of costume options for them! You might think they're a magician because of how much they can get away with when you're not looking. Or perhaps you think they could be a ghost because the only explanation of how they sneaked past you was by walking through walls. However, we think a great choice for your little trickster is a leprechaun costume! In Irish folklore, these fairy people were great at being sneaky and getting into plenty of shenanigans, just like your kiddo!
Toddler Leprechaun Costume
Many costumes help us look like something that is larger than life. When it comes to something like a T-Rex costume, the bigger it is, the better! But sometimes leaving things on the smaller side has its own advantages. Kids (and adults) of all ages can have a great time dressing up like a leprechaun. However, we think it's extra adorable when you put your toddler in one of these costumes because they're just the right size! A toddler leprechaun costume will be the perfect addition to your holiday celebration this year.
Infant Leprechaun Costume
Have you ever looked inside your wallet or purse and been a bit disappointed with how little cash you could find? Finding a pot of gold would sure solve some problems for a lot of us. No matter what you would use the money for, finding gold at the end of a rainbow would be a truly valuable discovery. But not as valuable as something you might already have! Show off your tiny treasure this St. Patrick’s Day with a leprechaun costume for babies. Your infant will be the cutest part of your little leprechaun family!
Funny Leprechaun Costumes
Leprechauns have a reputation for playing practical jokes on unsuspecting humans. They're rather mischievous and tricky creatures! If you consider yourself to be something of a clown, and you enjoy making other people laugh, you have plenty of funny costumes to choose from. But if you're looking for something specific to spring or you just like the aesthetic, perhaps a funny leprechaun costume is right for you! Whether you want something wacky for St. Patrick's Day or you're looking to make Halloween a bit greener, we have plenty of options for you. Of course, a regular leprechaun costume can be plenty of fun, but if you want something a little more unique, then you're looking in the right place!
We recently learned that the word "leprechaun" comes from old Irish words that mean "small body," which makes sense! Historic legends about leprechauns talk of small creatures that play pranks and generally outsmart humans who are after their gold. So why not turn tradition on its head and go big instead? An outfit like this leprechaun mascot costume will have you feeling larger than life! We also love mascot costumes because they're so versatile. You can wear them for holidays, costume parties, sporting events, or Halloween. We think you'll love wearing this hilarious costume in all seasons!
Leprechaun Dog Costume
What exactly is it about pet costumes that make us giggle so much? Perhaps it's how they wiggle when our pooch trots around the house wearing them, or how they turn even the fiercest looking dog into an adorable spectacle. If you want to get the family pet in on the fun this St. Patrick's Day, then you'll need a leprechaun dog costume for your special pup! We especially love dressing our dogs as leprechauns, since they're so short. They're just the right size to imitate these little fairies and might even help you picture exactly what you might run into on the Emerald Isle!
Leprechaun Piggyback Adult Costume
Sometimes, when you're looking to make the crowd laugh, you must be the one standing out from it! If you have the same costume as everyone else, it might not be quite as funny as you hoped. So if you're looking for some originality in your St. Patrick's Day getup, try a leprechaun piggyback costume! We're guessing that you won't find too many other people wearing one of these when you're out at the pub! You can even wear another leprechaun costume on top of this one for double the luck—and double the laughs. And of course, you don't have to limit yourself to a spring holiday. Break out a St. Patrick's Day costume like this one at Halloween to get some giggles!
Adult Rainbow Costume
There are plenty of places where you could wear a rainbow costume. It’s a colorful option for trick-or-treating, a pride event, or any regular costume party. But if you’re trying to stand out from the sea of green on St. Patrick’s Day, a rainbow costume might come in handy! After all, everyone knows that’s where a leprechaun keeps his pot of gold. A rainbow tunic is the perfect half of a St. Patrick’s Day couples’ costume or a vibrant addition to your group of leprechauns. Whether you decide to carry around a pot of gold or not, be prepared for people to come looking for one!
According to folk tales, leprechauns like to make shoes. While the right pair can make or break your costume, several other accessories can bring your leprechaun outfit from good to great. Add a pair of fun socks to make your outfit unique or add just the right hat to help you look the part. And of course, you don't have to stop there! Whether you want to wear some funky glasses, a vibrant wig, or any other extra decoration that will make you feel fabulous, we have options for you to choose from so you can build the perfect costume!
Of course, you don't need facial hair to dress like a leprechaun, but it certainly helps you look the part! Red or orange is the most popular choice, although some stories depict them as older gentlemen who sport grey or white instead. So if you don't have the capability or desire to grow your own goatee, you'll need a leprechaun beard like this one! Add some bushy eyebrows and a buckled hat and you'll be ready to guard your pot of gold and play mischievous tricks on unsuspecting humans!
Did you know that originally, leprechauns didn't have red hair? In fact, they were usually described as old men with white or grey beards and hair. However, once the stories about them left Ireland and started to be spread around the world, people attributed Irish stereotypes to the leprechauns themselves. Now, we would hardly recognize a leprechaun without fiery hair! So if you want to make sure all the pieces of your St. Patrick's Day costume are perfect, you'll definitely need an orange wig!
The way we picture leprechauns has changed over the years. The earliest versions of their folklore describe them as wearing red, not green! In our day and age, perhaps one of the most recognizable parts of a leprechaun’s ensemble is a tall green hat. Sometimes they have a buckle, and sometimes they don’t, but either way, a leprechaun hat like this one is just what you need to complete your St. Patrick’s Day costume! Whether you're wearing a suit, a dress, or just something green to avoid getting pinched, it's the perfect accessory to top things off.
Mini Leprechaun Hat
It’s St. Patrick’s Day, and you are ready to party! You’re dressed in your favorite green outfit, your makeup is impeccable, your green shoes are the perfect combination of cute and comfy, and just one finishing detail is missing. You need a hat! However, you just spent three hours creating the perfect hairstyle and you really want to show it off! What do you do? You wear a mini leprechaun hat, of course! It’s the perfect way to preserve your styled locks and still look festive from (literally) head to toe!
