Hello. My name is Ivana and I-vana serve you a beer.
Ha ha ha! I love this costume from Costume Super Center! I recently went on a costume-shopping rampage after throwing back to back themed parties for my friends and family. I was really happy to see that they offer costumes for adults, in addition to all of their great kid's costumes.
The Brauhaus Babe costume for women is a classic Bavarian girl costume - it's perfect for a themed party (Octoberfest, anyone?), just for fun or for a costume party event like upcoming Fantasy Fest! The Brauhaus Babe costume includes a dress with peasant top with a lace-up corset and a black skirt with a built-in white lace petticoat as well as a blue apron with lace trim. The corset, skirt and apron are trimmed in a Bavarian floral print.
The Women's Brauhaus Babe costume is cute and sassy all on it's own, and doesn't really need any accessories, but they offer a few for those that really love to go all out with their costumes!
The photo above is their stock photo from the website...and here it the costume actually on me...
Excuse my bare feet and the puppy lurking in the doorway - despite the fact that it's almost 2 pm, my daughter is still asleep and I had to do a self portrait in the mirror in our spare bedroom. Not the ideal photography studio, but I made it work! Also? Disregard my knobby knees!
I received the size large, which is said to fit a woman's size 10-12. I am a size 6 or 8, depending, and it fit me just fine. It was a little loose but not baggy or anything like that. I could actually breathe in it, and if I gain a few pounds, it will still fit nicely.
I have to tell you, I was really surprised at the quality of the costume. I've purchased costumes from storefronts in the past and they either fell apart after I wore them once, or were see thru and cheaply made. Not this one! The Woman's Brauhaus Babe Costume is really nicely made. The material is a great consistency, so that it's not too heavy, but definitely isn't see through at all. The apron is just adorable and even has a really nice length to the ties so that I was able to tie it into a really pretty bow in the back!
I just love how this costume is sexy, but still completely tasteful. It is short and sassy, but not too short that I have to wear shorts underneath it. It's fitted and gives me a great waistline, but it isn't low cut, so I am not uncomfortable.I think that I may end up wearing this costume to Fantasy Fest this year...or to our local OctoberFest festival!
