Vintage Halloween Costumes in Las Vegas
We have a huge assortment at American Costumes of vintage Halloween costumes for women from the forties on up.. A great touch is all the accessories that go with the costumes such as wigs, hats, fans, gloves, jewelry, ties, belts and shoes.
We specialize and get a lot of requests for vintage halloween costumes from the sixties and seventies. The women’s costumes, include the go go boots with the short polyester dresses and the men’s vintage Halloween costumes include the leisure and polyester suits with the big shirt collars.
We can make you look so real the guests at your party will swear that you actually own the ensemble and that you had it all these years in your closet.
We love putting people in the platform shoes and boots..they instantly look like they have lost 20 pounds being four inches taller and the shag wigs make them look like they are ten years younger. All in all it is a great time for vintage and everybody loves it.
It may not be exactly vintage but we have original Batman Joker and Penguin costumes from the early Michael Keaton, Jack Nicholson movie. I guess it’s more of a collectors item than vintage. This is from 1989.
And also some of our masks are definitely fall under the category of Vintage Halloween costume accessories.
It’s superhero time..We at American Costumes have been catering to children’s costumes based on book reports and history reports for school. It seems like a lot of the costumes are historical and the students become living statues. For instance, they choose a historical character like Abraham Lincoln, dress up like him, and deliver his words and things about him when the spectators pass by. We at American Costumes get such a kick out of dressing the young students as Harriet Tubman, Ben Franklin, Washington, Florence Nightingale, Daniel Boone, Lewis and Clark and getting back reports as they return their costumes, how they received an “A.’
After we dress them in the costumes in the store while their parents are with them, the kids usually do their act for us ,which is so cool. But for Halloween we get a lot of superhero requests and of course Disney requests for children. It seems like the children can’t wait to be Spiderman, Batman, Catgirl, Wonder Woman and Little Mermaid and when they trick or treat with their parents, American Costumes can surely accommodate the grown ups as superheros as well.

Men are very interesting creatures when it comes to dressing up in Halloween costumes. At American Costumes of Las Vegas, we find that men for the most part just want to be comfortable or loud or not recognized. They either want to hide in a bear costume, wear some kind of a loud blazer with psychedelic prints on it, or suits like dumb and dumber, Or do something simple like a prisoner suit, which to their liking throw over their own clothes and have their keys and wallets not left behind. Whatever the costume most men want to make sure they can eat and drink without any difficulty. It’s no wonder that after 42 years of catering to men we can accommodate them totally at American Costumes.
When we put the bald men in wigs, their wives laugh hysterically and when the wives laugh hysterically it’s an automatic sale, especially when we do Elvis for them.

History of Halloween costumes in our store
We at American Costumes have been in business since 1978. Our history goes back over forty years and we have evolved along with our History of Halloween Costumes, which to no surprise follows the movie and television industries. We remember how people back 40 years ago wanted to be Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Interesting how it changed to Snow White, Evil Queen and the Huntsman. So what is going on with these old characters such as Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella? Well they are now today, along with the original versions, having the new sexy versions. The conservative costumes have become, over the years, the new sexy versions especially for women. Now here is something that we would not have guessed forty years ago that mens costumes and men’s characters would now have a woman’s version such as female Ninja Turtles, female Ghostbusters, female Zorro, female Edward Scissorhands, female Freddy Krueger, let’s not forget female Elvis.
Forty years ago the usual request for a renaissance king would be some famous king like Henry the Eighth or some knight like Sir Lancelot. Today the urge to be great king or knight has transformed into just medieval garb that looks like more every day period clothing- example what’s in Game of Thrones – more leathery and studded than velvets and jeweled.
One of the biggest expansion is the theme of Superheroes ….It was just Superman and Batman, but over the last 40 years it’s every kind of man– Ant man, Iron Man, Black Panther, Storm, Daredevil, Green Lantern, Deadpool, Black Widow, Wolverine,etc.
We noticed that Space became a very big theme with the advent of Star Wars and Star Trek movies..Even aliens became more prominent. There also is a trend of couples costumes. His and her matching ensembles.People are not wanting to be just in the same theme, they want the colors to match as well — like costumes for the Seventies. He wears black bell bottoms with a leopard print shirt and she wears a leopard print dress with black platforms.
Last but certainly not least, the biggest historical change is the internet. Years ago people would have to come down to the store to see what they wanted to buy, or to get ideas or to see what was available. NO MORE! Today you must have an internet presence. Your store today needs to be on line. Nobody wants to come down to the store at first. If they see it on your website, they call to make sure you have it . If you have it and they can’t see it on line they want you to send them a picture of it. Between the cell phone and the internet the history of selecting and purchasing costumes is turning the page.
