Appear as a classic firefighter and you will need to start putting out the fires of desire and watch out for smoldering embers. A firefighter costume for Halloween is sure to be a steamy idea and is sure to get all of the ladies around all hot and bothered. Everyone loves a hero and all Firefighters are heroes. In this article we will give you some helpful hints and tips on adopting a new persona for the night.
A fireman is one of the classic fantasies for women linked with acts of heroism and the mystery of a handsome dark stranger capable of carrying to safety any woman they want to. Most women would admit to having fantasised about being carried to safety from a blazing fire over the shoulder of a strapping fireman. As a man attending a fancy dress party this is almost a sure winner of a costume.
A fireman costume is both easy to wear and this makes it comfortable, the only issue may come from it becoming hot, but hey a fireman striped with glistening bare chest MUST be an even bigger winner. It’s that simple! Most internet fancy dress costume retailers will have a range of firefighter costume styles available.
Having the right costume is all well and good but there are some basic rules for playing the role of firefighter successfully. No woman will fall for that ‘straight out of the box’ costume. You will need to really look the part. Firstly you will need a couple of accessories. Tall leather boots or boot covers – look in the pirate section for these. If you have good quality black gumboots, polish these up and add a yellow toe-cap for the truly authentic look.
If you want to make a memorable entrance you could select a fireman’s helmet with a flashing blue light. These have a switch which allows the lights to be turned on and off. With lights flashing, a small ladder or length of garden hose you will certainly take centre of stage.
To achieve maximum effect you could adopt the ‘sorry I’m late, I’ve just been to a fire’ look. Using dark make-up smear some dark marks on your face and dirty your hands. This is better and more realistically achieved with real charcoal and ash which can also be used to ‘age’ and add extra realism to your costume. A dirty breathing mask (from your local DIY store) really makes it look like you’ve put your life at risk; a must for those extra hero’s points.
And as an act of equality, there are now a number of firefighter costumes for women too! These are aimed at being scorching hot and wear one of these and you will be setting off fire-alarms all over the place. Most of these costumes come with boot tops but if yours doesn’t team it will long sexy black boots (red if you have them), create your sexiest makeup to look your sexiest best. Complete the look with one of the novelty handbags shaped like a fire extinguisher and you will be the hottest thing at the party.
