Valentine's Day Costumes & Accessories: T-Shirts, Headbands, Heart Glasses & More
"Who bothers to dress for Valentine's Day?" you might ask.
To which we answer, "Everyone. Everyone dresses, but not everyone really dresses." A select few people – that special breed of party animals who celebrate every holiday big and small – go all out for Valentine's Day with t-shirts, leggings, headbands – the works. Also, the sentimentalist who values Valentine's Day to such a degree that every pair of sunglasses must be heart-shaped, every pair of socks must be plastered with hearts, and even boxer shorts must bear an enduring message of love. The sentimentalist can often be seen in heart-themed attire, regardless of the occasion, even on Easter or Christmas, which is an illustration of just how deep the attachment to Valentine's Day runs.
Party animal and sentimentalist, we salute you. This page was meant for you.
You've been waiting all year – ALL YEAR – to break those heart glasses out of the box, dust off the trusty red sequined head bopper, and purchase a few choice items to further enhance your annual DIY Valentine's Day outfit. Maybe it will be a heart necklace, maybe a new headband, and maybe something more daring, like a novelty t-shirt with a saucy headline. Take it a step further and modify that t-shirt into a crop top, if the mood of daring rushes over you like a tidal wave.
There are a million and one ways to assemble your DIY ensemble. Here, we're guessing of course – we haven't hired a mathematician to work out the exact numbers for us – but given the quantity of Valentine's Day costume accessories available in this section of the Party City site, we feel it's a reasonable figure. Your task, should you decide to accept, is to purchase every pair of heart glasses, every heart headband, and every Valentine's Day t-shirt available on PartyCity.com, and coordinate these accessories into every possible permutation of DIY costume. Then please let us know the total number of DIY costumes you've created. Send us a photo of each outfit so that we can independently verify the results. For your efforts, we'll be deeply grateful. A Valentine's Day exchange card is on its way.
Valentine's Day Costume Accessories: Components of the DIY Outfit
Valentine's Day T-Shirts: You've seen ‘em, the shirts with somewhat outrageous sayings like "I tolerate you." Yes, we carry them. Not too outrageous now, because Party City is a family-friendly brand. But we try to be cool, like the uncool kid who wants to be like the Fonz.
Heart Glasses: Everything looks different through a pair of heart glasses. Rosier, somehow. You can opt for novelty glasses shaped like a heart – these are purely decorative of course – or functioning sunglasses in a plastic heart frame. The sunglasses are mildly protective against the blinding glare of your beloved's aura.
Heart Headbands: The cornerstone of a great Valentine's Day costume, headbands and head boppers feature bouncing red heads, Cupid's arrows, red sequin bows, and other holiday icons.
Valentine's Day Socks: Often overlooked in any holiday ensemble are the feet. They needn't be, with over a dozen holiday socks to embellish your lower extremities.
Valentine's Day Photo Booth Props: The only thing better than a DIY Valentine's Day costume is a group photo of all the DIY outfits at the party. Silly photo booth props help to make the moment just a little sillier, or to cover for the one or two party goers who forget to dress up.
Heart-Themed Jewelry: Do you wear your heart on your sleeve? Then how about around your neck? A light-up heart necklace will do the trick, plus it will serve as beacon to anyone looking for you in a crowd of headbands, t-shirts, and heart glasses.
