Dress Up Games and Prom

Prom is just a few weeks away for many of us, and that means it’s time for some serious dress up games. When you’re playing dress up games for prom, why not spend some time actually thinking abut the sort of dresses you’re thinking about ahead of time. The dresses for prom are always featured online in picture studies as well as in catalogs and fashion plates. The dresses for prom are also featured in a spot you’ve probably never thought of – the online dress up games.

Online dress up games that deal with formal gowns make it possible for you to think about and see how the different styles of dresses fit. While the doll base online won’t be a perfect match for your own body, she will be able to at least wear a few different basic shapes so that you can narrow down your search when it comes time to actually hurry to the stores. Pull a look together online and you’ll have a much easier time pulling it together at the stores, too.

Dress Up Games for the Beach

As the weather warms up dramatically, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to be wearing on the beach this season. The beach is always an adventure in seeing how much you can get away with, but you don’t want to spend all of your energy worrying about how to keep the vital parts covered while exposing the rest of the skin on your body. It’s more important to think of ways to look adorable while staying appropriately attired to actually have fun.

Walking down the beach with your swimsuit barely holding on isn’t fun. Sure, you get lots of attention, but that’s not always the sort of attention you want from groups of people drinking on the beach. It’s far better to put on a cute swimsuit and comfortable cover so that you can actually move on the beach. Don’t you want to be able to walk down the beach and run and play? Pick up a game of volleyball when asked? Dress to be impressive – not just dressing to impress.

Dress Up Games and Easter

Easter may be the time of the egg-delivering bunny, but it’s also the time of Easter dresses and bonnets. Of course, in our modern time, we don’t do many bonnets anymore, although you’ll find pretty fabulous hats every now and again. When you’re playing dress up games for Easter, you can enjoy quite a section of outfits and styles designed to make you look light and pretty for the holiday.

Naturally, not all of us celebrate Easter with dress up games, but we don’t have to celebrate Easter to take advantage of the pretty floral dresses out there. Look in your favorite stores for the lines of clothing they have in their spring collections. You want clothing that looks beautiful and is also age appropriate. Older women shouldn’t be dressing like little girls and little girls shouldn’t be dressing like women heading out to a club, either. Find a pretty dress that really resonates with you and it can easily be the basis of entirely new dress up games.

Dress Up Games and St. Patrick’s Day

It’s funny how easily dress up games work into the major, and not so major holidays throughout the year. St. Patrick’s Day is a perfect example. The whole premise behind how we celebrate St. Patrick’s day in the United States is the clothing we wear. Okay, it’s also the beer we drink, but for those of us who aren’t into such things, we have to stick with the clothing option. St. Patrick’s Day celebrates the Irish patron, and what could be more Irish than a bunch of green!

Green beer, green rivers and green clothing are all part of the deal, but the dress up games deal with the green clothing. If you have to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day to avoid getting pinched, why not do it with style and finesse? There’s no rule stating that the green you wear has to be some random t-shirt with a slogan, although it’s always an option. Pull together a classy look with dark jeans, boots and a hip sweater. Simply grab a green t-shirt to put under the sweater and that peek of green at the neckline will be enough to make everyone happy and you’ll look great, too.

Dress Up Games and Dessert

There’s a strict correlation between how many dress up games I play and how much dessert I eat. It works something like this. When I want to play dress up games, I’m feeling slim and healthy. When I’m eating a huge amount of dessert I’m feeling anything but slim and healthy. It’s a paradox. When I play dress up games, my favorite thing in the world is to throw clothing aside as being too big for me now. I want to under grow my clothing.

I used to do it all the time, but now I only seem to outgrow them as my tummy enlarges with every bit of dessert I eat. It’s frankly quite disgusting, but even though I know the gross (but yummy!) foods I eat are causing the pudge my clothes are battling, I can’t seem to stop. I think what I need to do is start from the other direction. If I play dress up games now I’ll likely find some clothing that fits comfortable. If I see that I have clothing that fits and looks okay, I can start working my way down from there. Nobody wants to schlep around all of the time – least of all me.
