I know Halloween is a few months away, but many of our customers order their costumes months in advance, and I'd like to help them get ready now so they're not scrambling for ideas at the last minute

The CEO of online costume website SexyWearAvenue.com, Arsen Janikyan, is helping customers to personalize their costumes by providing them with advice on accessorizing some of the website’s bestselling costumes.
“I know Halloween is a few months away, but many of our customers order their costumes months in advance, and I’d like to help them get ready now so they’re not scrambling for ideas at the last minute,” Janikyan said. “There are also many occasions besides Halloween where our customers wear these costumes, such as theme parties, costume parties and bachelor parties.”
Janikyan is now providing costume accessory advice for many of their most popular costumes. “Many of these costumes come with accessories, but customers also often like to provide their own accessories to provide that personal touch, and really make the costume their own,” he said.
1.) The Sexy Nurse Costume is always one of their best sellers, and can be dressed up with a number of accessories. Stockings, shoes, gloves, and nurse caps that are traditionally associated with a sexy nurse’s outfit really make the uniform complete. Stockings can be thigh highs or garters, and can be solid, fishnet, or patterned. Some of them come with small red bows or red crosses on them, to play up the medical aspect of the nurse’s costume.
“Many people like to add a stethoscope, a medical kit, a fake plastic syringe, or a fake bottle of prescription pills, to complete the outfit,” Janikyan said. “A medical kit with a red cross on it can also be used as a purse, or to hold candy while trick or treating.”
The Sexy Angel Costumes are another costume site favorite. Of course no angel costume is complete without a halo and feathery wings, but how to dress them up further?
“A toy harp is a popular accessory for the Angel costume, because angels are frequently pictured playing the harp,” explains Janikyan.
White stockings are an excellent compliment to the popular white angel costumes. Of course not all angel costumes are white; these days, the naughty angel costumes, which come in black, are popular as well. There are dark angel costumes and Gothic angel costumes as well. Black fishnet stockings or black thigh high boots dress up and accent those costumes beautifully.
The Sexy Pirate Costume comes with all kinds of accessory possibilities. “There are numerous ways to dress these costumes up and make them your own,” Janikyan said. Pirates traditionally are pictured wearing some kind of head kerchief, which can be in a wide range of colors and designs. Of course the pirate is almost always pictured with an eye patch. A plastic hook is a frequently used accessory. A toy parrot - or for that matter a real parrot - often accompanies pirate costumes. A plastic treasure chest, or treasure maps are also excellent accessories. As for the pirate weapons of choice - an old fashioned musket or a scimitar (a curved sword) are among the most common.
For those who like the thrill of playing a “bad guy”, sexy gangster costumes are an excellent choice. To make the costumes even more fun, they can be dressed up further with the customer’s accessories, or with accessories that come with the outfit.
A fedora is often seen with gangster costumes, with its traditional wide brim and a decorative band accenting it. The stockings accompanying the gangster costume may be pinstriped to match a pinstriped suit, or they may be black. Many gangster suits come with a tie, which can be in a wide range of colors.
As for weapons, the infamous Tommy gun would be the most popular choice - in plastic, of course. A bag of fake cash can also add to the gangster effect.
Sexy Army Costumes, usually in green, khaki or camouflage, can be decorated with medals, stars, and dangling dog tag necklaces. A gun-belt and an ammo belt are excellent accessories for an army costume. If the costume is a dress, then fishnets, matching camouflage stockings, green stockings, or black stockings are quite attractive. An army cap is frequently worn, and if a gun belt is not added, a regular belt can complete the look.
“These are just a few of the ways that customers can dress up these costumes and make them uniquely their own creation,” according to Janikyan.
