Dressing for Oktoberfest

While many people choose to dress up for Halloween, there is another celebration in October that is more than worthy of dressing up for. Oktoberfest, as the name suggests, is celebrated in October – and while the world’s most famous Oktoberfest celebration is held in Munich, it is also widely celebrated throughout Australia. What exactly is Oktoberfest about then? For many people, Oktoberfest is about beer and food, dancing and having a good time – and for some, dressing up.

For anyone thinking of dressing up for this year’s Oktoberfest – whether in Munich or anywhere else in the world – there is a variety of Oktoberfest costumes for both men and women. For men, the traditional choice is lederhosen, while for women, it’s the dirndl. These German dresses range from the more traditional options, to those that are designed to create a somewhat different effect.

Dressing Like A Fraulein

Looking for a dirndl? With a huge range of costumes and costume accessories on offer, eBay is the perfect place to shop for Oktoberfest costumes for women. Find everything from lovely lederhosen to daring dirndls, from well-known costume brands such as Smiffy’s and Rubie’s. What to look for when choosing Oktoberfest costumes for women? Well, one of the most important things to look for is size. As it’s being purchased online, make sure the costume will fit correctly, by checking for sizing and measurement info on the seller’s description.

While it may not be of the utmost concern for some fancy-dressers, quality is another thing to look out for. Seriously cheap costumes may be cheap for a reason – but, if the costume is simply to wear for a few hours at a party, then cheap and cheerful may be the way to go. Check the seller’s photographs and look at the type of material the costume is made from if quality is important, and bear in mind that the cheapest option may not be the best option on this occasion.
