About Oktoberfest Costumes
The 16-day Oktoberfest celebration in Munich, Bavaria, Germany is imitated in many other cities around the world so the fun is coming to you, but you still need an Oktoberfest costume to dress up. Will you dress up as a modest German maid with a corset-style bodice and long sleeves that hang off the shoulders? Maybe you want something a bit more exciting so you choose the short skirt, knee-high socks, and fancy garter around your neck. Men?you must don some brown lederhosen trousers complete with the traditional shoulder straps. You definitely do not have to dress up to party at the festival, but a costume makes the experience much more fun. Find those that come with fun accessories, such as a scarf or Bavarian-style hat for men. Order a fake beer glass to carry around with you or find a pair of Bavarian slip-ons to complete the outfit. You can get it all on eBay. On to the festival.
