It’s a Grinch-y Christmas!

We are in the middle of our Free Friday Giveaway Madness!

My Costume Wigs gave away a free Santa wig and beard set to one of our friends, Mindy Eyre! Winner!

Feeling left out? We’ve got more giveaways in store! This week, we are giving away one of our popular Grinch Christmas Wigs.

 This wig is based on the ever-popular, ever-classic  How the Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr. Seuss.

Written in rhymed verse with illustrations by the author, It was published in 1957. The book criticizes the commercialization of Christmas. A classic of all Christmas classic, It was one of the “Top 100 Picture Books” of all time.  If you haven’t heard of if, you are obviously from another planet.

While reading the book last night (one of our family’s Christmas traditions), I thought, what better place to wear The Grinch wig, yet another cool wig from My Costume Wigs, at your very own Grinch-y Themed Christmas party!

Cue the music:

Let’s start planning, shall we?

First, we need invitations. I am somewhat crafty, but my Pinterest board is filling up with all the projects I want to complete but never, ever have time to do! So, lately, I am all convenience, which, for me, is another word for “less stress”.

There are lots of fun invitation ideas out there. Most are digital files that you can purchase and can be created with your specific information and emailed to you for printing. (This one prints it for you! Yay!)

Invitations? Check! Let’s move on to decorations.

I LOVE this center piece, so Dr. Suess-like.

October at My Costume Wigs

Happy November?!

October was a whirlwind for our staff at My Costume Wigs! Thanks to you, we had a great month. For starters, we showcased our wigs on Utah’s Channel 4′s Good Things Utah and Channel 2′s Fresh Living. We demonstrated how to plan a child’s costume by using some old clothes found around the house. Can’t forget the wig – that’s what makes the costume! All of our ideas are a little too late to start planning your Halloween costume this year, but don’t worry – we will post those next year. Meanwhile, allow your creative juices to start flowing… :)

 

Plus we outfitted the hosts at Good Things Utah with some great Edward, Bella and Jacob Halloween wigs found at MyCostumeWigs.com.

Oh! And we survived a hurricane! Luckily, our staff and warehouse were safe and dry with minimal damage. Many thanks to those that patiently worked with us while your packages were held up. We love our customers!

We are now gearing up for the Holiday season. We don’t just sell Halloween wigs! We sell Santa Claus wigs, New Years wigs, Valentine’s Day wigs, Carnival wigs…you get the picture!  Now, go and add a picture of your wig to our Halloween Photo Contest!
