Classic Valentines Costume Ideas
When you hear 'Valentine's Day' you might think of bright reds, soft pinks, and a mountain of candy hearts with silly phrases on them. You might even think about cherubs, Cupids, and even a hot devil or two. Valentine's has been around a long time, and while costumes might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the lovey-dovey holiday, perhaps our costume guide will inspire you to throw your own party on February 14th! What can we say? Love is in the air!
Cupid and Devil Costumes
Cupid here is seen with her legendary bow and arrows, and our Devil is obviously smitten. Would you believe he's actually wearing one of our vampire costumes? They work really well as devils, especially when you add a pair of horns. Cupid is wearing our women's Hermes costume to get that classic Greek style, along with a pair of feather wings. Together you've got an adorable couple representing both good and evil. We like to think, though polar opposites, they've really found a romantic harmony.

Angel and Devil Costumes
We've switched around from our first image of this pairing, so that the woman is now the demon, and the man is Cupid! That's a fun little twisty-twist. She is one seductive devil, using our devil tail whip to really sell that whole look. Our Cupid is wearing our toga, the same feather wings, and also an intimidated face as he tries to defend himself. Don't even try, dude! Sometimes, the "bad" side has to win.
There's been some legendary, fantastic, mysterious, beautiful, and tragic romances throughout human history. Some of them really happened, and others turned into myths, plays, and novels. We love it when people get inspired by history for their costumes, and even though Valentine's isn't known as a dress up holiday, we'd like to show you just a few reasons why it SHOULD be. Throw that Valentine's Day party for coupled and single friends both by using these ideas of famous lovers... who knows, you just might kick start a new, legendary romance at your party.
Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn
Okay, while these two certainly didn't have a blissful marriage, they are still a fantastic example of a legendary romance, despite the way it ended. Henry VIII loved Anne Boleyn so much (or was attracted to her so much) that he actually separated from the Roman Catholic Church to get a divorce from his first wife, and then started his OWN church, of which, he was the leader. Of course, Anne ended up losing her head years later, but at the time, their romance was the talk of England.
Antony and Cleopatra
Yes, Antony and Cleopatra were real people, but the fiction about them has, perhaps, taken hold as legend. William Shakespeare himself wrote an entire play about their love affair, and many centuries later Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton portrayed them on film to critical acclaim. The story, sadly, ends tragically, but they were one of the world's original power couples, and are a blast to portray for a night.
Marilyn and Joe DiMaggio
You might not have known, but Joe Dimaggio and Marilyn Monroe were married! They were quite the famous couple in their time, and an early favorite of celebrity gossip as we know it today. They couldn't make it work, unfortunately, but they left plenty of black and white photographs of them looking very happy together for all of us to enjoy even decades later.
Hef and Bunny
Despite his fondness for being a perpetual boat captain here in the twenty-first century, when Hugh Hefner got his start 60 years ago, he was quite the media mogul! Playboy has now become infamous through its magazine, and perhaps more so through its "lifestyle" which had a certain resurgence with shows like Mad Men. No matter how you feel about the whole swingin' bachelor thing, the Playboy Bunny and Hef himself are an iconic duo.
Accessories of Love
You've decided that you've got to have a Valentine's Day costume party, you even got your own costume picked out, but now, how to accessorize? We've got this handy guide to show you some of our favorite items! Wings, hearts, and red, of course, are prominent! We hope our accessories of love inspire you to really make this February a passionate one.
You've got to keep all of your belongings secure, but you don't want to just carry around your normal handbag and ruin your theme... get our heart purse! It's bright red, and in the shape of a classic Valentine's heart.
