About Mrs Claus Costumes
A Mrs Claus Costume is a staple for any fancy dress party-goer. Ideal for the festive period or as one half of a couple (with Santa Claus as her other half), a Mrs Claus costume is a fun, timeless option for fancy dress. Regardless of the age of the wearer, this costume is always a popular option with a wide age range of customers. Whether you?re looking for a sexy outfit or a more demure option, there are a range of styles and hem lengths available.
Integral to the modern day Christmas story, Mrs Claus and Santa are the bringers of festive cheer, the centre to Christmas frivolities. The dress of a modern Santa and Mrs Claus has moved a long way from its origins as a Bishop?s outfit originating with the tradition of St Nicholas. Since then, Santa has been robed in green and more recently in the familiar bright red and white we see today that is especially cheerful in the dark days leading up to Christmas.
The cheery, bright red dress and hat with white trim and black detailing is perhaps the most recognisable of the Mrs Claus costumes, but not the only option. She is also depicted wearing a long jacket or cape with hood and in colours that vary through the red hues. The detailing to her outfit might include black buttons or a black belt with buckle and often the trim of her hat, cape or dress is in white fur. The female counterpart to Santa Claus, Mrs Claus? costume is typically matching in style and colour to that of a Santa suit.
