Bazar Mask – Geisha Costume Review

BAZAR Costumes, Masks & Props is a family owned and operated business in Evansville, IN. It is an online store that offers a vast selection of high quality products for different budgets and a friendly staff that is knowledgeable about their products offered. They also specialize in creating, designing and fabricating their own line of Hollywood quality deluxe latex masks and props (in limited quantities).

Thanks to Bazar Mask, I was able to do review their Geisha Costume. If you hadn’t noticed, I love geishas, cherry blossom trees and many things about Japan. I’ve always wanted to dress up as a geisha, so this was the perfect opportunity to do so without having to spend hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on a real geisha costume.

The geisha costume includes a beautiful red oriental pattern kimono, red slip dress, obi belt, decorative fan and a black wig.

The red slip dress, kimono and obi were all wrinkled when I took them out of the package. I hung it up to let it de-wrinkle but that didn’t work too well. So, I cool ironed it (very carefully) to smooth it out. It does seem to run a bit small though, so you might want to order a size larger (I find this to be true on quite a few costumes though).

The black wig was okay, but really made me realize I don’t want to dye my hair black ever. It does look really good with the costume though. The fan also adds a very nice touch to the costume. It doesn’t include shoes, but white socks are really all you need – and if you have wooden flip flop sandals that will work great too.

Overall, I really like the costume and will most likely be wearing it for Halloween or a Halloween party (if I can get people to dress up for it). Pictures will be posted if I do so check back on that!

I wore a geisha costume once to my friend's geisha themed party ( seriously so hilarious! ). You should try wearing this, Sheri. Must be very pretty and unique :)

Oh, I like geisha costumes, too. I wonder if Andhari has some pics of her wearing the costume, hehe.

I find the geisha culture interesting. I've been inspired by their kimono for ideas before. Good choice on a costume.
