Saint Patricks Day Costumes- Cool Alternative Options
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Saint Patrick's Day is just creeping around the corner and as I write this article in Ireland, I can feel the buzz around this town already gearing up. Saint Paddies day is an exciting time in Ireland, and of-course in other places around the world as celebrations explode all over the place, but in reality, to be in Dublin with a million people on March 17th is nuts and out there, energetic and very exciting.

Parades are held all over the country, and the main very large parade happens in Dublin. Nearly everbody dresses up, and tourists love nothing more than participating and wearing huge green hats with splashed on face paint and as it is the theme of the day, it is impossible to look stupid.

If you are planning to dress up yourself and celebrate Paddies Day, where ever you may be around the world, there are a ton of options you can choose, and most are very cheap and easy to obtain, but, as I have seen, a lot can look very tacky, cheaply made plastic and more than likely disposable.

It may be worth a little investment in to your Saint Patricks Day costume and also by researching online and finding an alternative one, you can stand out from the crowd and be very unique. There is another great flip side to doing this too, the fact that what ever sort of costume you find, you or your kids can use again at Halloween, getting the best value out of your costume investment.

What Alternatives?

This is the best part. Come Paddies day, most people will do the following and be vey predicatable making just a small bit of effort but ofcourse, still having fun. People will paint a shamrock on a face, wear a hat, wear a flag, wear something green, dye or spray their hair green, dress up as a Leprechaun and so on. Now these are all relatively fine, but if you want to go that extra mile and go for something completely unique and crazy, lets think about history.

Remember, Ireland is steeped in fantastic history from The Bronze Age, Iron Age, Celts, my favorite The Vikings, The Normans, The Middle Ages up until the rebels of the civil war, all of these catergories give way to some amazing costume ideas, and ones that truly speak Irish and fit perfectly in to the exciting parades bracing the land of Ireland.

Finding Celt and Viking costumes and so on is easy enough these days and the range is wonderful, striking and there are plenty for both adults and children all to be found online. Dressing up in an alternative Irish costume for Paddies day and staying away from the normal predictable costumes will have you the talk of any party be it Paddies day, Halloween or any fancy dress party.

Saint Patrick's Day is a wonderful day for everyone and to be celebrated by everyone. It is a chance to be Irish for the day if you are not Irish of course ha! And it is also a day to let the hair down, dress up, have a drink if you are old enough and just enjoy the craziness of the day. There are a lot of amazing alternative Paddies Day costumes and you can see some at my Irish Celtic Costumes site and enjoy these historical costumes and also fun costumes like the walking beer keg, need I say no more. Enjoy, and HAPPY ST PATRICKS DAY!
