If you need cheap gloves don’t bother going to the mall. Really, I was just at Macy’s and the cheapest pair of long gloves that were there were 30 dollars. I just found that absurd considering I know of identical pairs available for under 8 dollars. When you’re shopping for costume accessories you really shouldn’t be paying a ton of money. Why would you? You’re only going to wear the item one or two times, so why spend a ton of loot. I certainly wouldn’t. Anyway, costume gloves are good for many purposes. For use in groups costume gloves are great for matching costumes. If the gloves are flashy enough the audience’s eyes will go straight to them, instead of the off beat steps of the amateur dancers. Jazz hands have never looked as good. Take a look at the long gold gloves or the long silver gloves. They are fantastic choices for any performance as they shine brightly in the lights. The long silver gloves are good for retro space costumes for women too. A short silver dress, silver gloves and silver boots make an awesome 60s style go-go dancer space girl costume!
Costume gloves are cheap and versatile-like a good hooker! Sorry that statement popped into my mind and I simply couldn’t resist. I probably should take a writing course to brush up on technique, but that’s for another blog. Costume gloves are the type of thing that you may forget to order for costume, but don’t because they’re inexpensive attention grabbing accessories.
