Do’s and Don’ts of Wearing a Costume to a Dance:
Always wear something underneath.
Don’t wear a mask to dance, or you will look ridiculous.
Do wear a helmet to protect your head if you get into serious trouble.
Always dress well with your costume on. It is a lot to take in, but don’t wear silly clothes.
Do not wear any makeup on your face. It might look cool, but it won’t give you the confidence you need to move freely.
Do not wear any costume jewelry.
Do wear shoes with heels. When walking around with a pair of boots or bare feet, have a friend pick them up so you don’t put your feet to the metal.
Do wear some form of wetsuit to keep you cool when it gets chilly outside. You don’t want to spend the entire show soaked in sweat on a wet floor.
Do not make the dance floor too hot with costumes.
Do not wear a bra underneath or you will be exposing yourself to the elements.
Do not wear a mask or gloves on your hands.
Do not wear any type of high heels. When dancing on the floor you have zero control over how you move.
Do not wear high heels to class. We all have to wear comfortable shoes that we can also dance to.
Do not wear heels into the gym. It is just not worth it in a room full of guys.
Do not wear shoes from Nike or athletic footwear. They are too high and too restrictive.
How to Wear a Costume Costume to a Dance:
It is important that as many people as possible know your costume, dress appropriately, and act in a way that makes you feel comfortable. Always be mindful of your body in relation to others. Be aware of the fact that dancing without proper form can make people feel uncomfortable.
Don’t worry about what your body size is. Everyone is different. The easiest way to determine your size is to take a ruler and measure yourself at the fullest part of your hips (the most visible part of your body). You can also measure the size of your waist.
If you’re smaller than average for your height, you will probably want to measure your hip height. Check out this chart for reference.
