January and February are both big months for football, and with Superbowl XLVI (46) in just a few weeks there is still plenty of time to put together a sports costume for the big day. While many people opt to dress in the jersey of their favorite team, what are you to do if you’re team isn’t in the Superbowl this year? You could hang on to your pride and wear your jersey anyway, or you could surprise everyone on game day by showing up in funny, sexy or classic football costume.
One only needs to have a look at the likes of LA Raiders fans, affectionately known as Raider Nation, or the well know Cheese Heads in Green Bay to understand that dressing up in wild sports costumes is a widely accepted and even integral part of a team’s fan base. Besides, people love a reason to dress up, and sporting events in general are a great opportunity to have some fun with creative costume ideas.
If football isn’t your thing then there’s still a pretty good chance you’ll be able to find a costume that matches your preferred sport. There’s a big selection of great sports costumes out there for practically every sporting event, and even after the season is over and we wait patiently for the next year, you’ll probably find another reason to put that sports costumes on between now and the next championship game.
