My name is Carol Hughes. I've owned Custom Costumes of Rochester for 25 years now. Today, I'm going to demonstrate some basics of costuming to you. How to dress for a Hawaiian theme. Well, for the ladies you'd dress in a grass skirt. I like to take a lei and sew it around the top of the grass skirt and you can use a coconut bra, a leaf bra, a shell bra even a bikini top. If you're really shy, I suppose you could use a one piece swimsuit. And then you would add a lei around the neck, a flower in your hair. If you don't have black hair, you'd probably want to do a long slightly wavy wig. For a Hawaiian man, you would wear possibly a grass skirt, shorts or long pants, a brightly colored Hawaiian shirt, a lei around the neck. If you wanted a straw hat you could add that too. Sunglasses are always good for a man too. To find these things you can find the leis, bras, grass skirts all at those party stores. It would be pretty dubious that you'd find them at the used stores or the thrift stores. And this is how you dress for a Hawaiian theme.
