Clown Logo of Karnival Costumes your Halloween specialists for Fancy Dress and Costume Accessories
Firefighter costumes for both adults and children have been a long-time Halloween favourite dress-up costume. Whether you’re young or old, anyone who’s seen a fireman or woman instinctively recognises their heroism. And at some point, haven’t we all wanted to emulate them and be just like our heroes? So it’s no real surprise then that fire fighter costumes are so popular during the fancy dress season with lots being seen out and about during trick-or-treat.
But why should they be limited so much towards Halloween? Firefighter costumes give all ages a smart instantly recognised look. And they’re inspirational too providing the wearer a reason to select one of these outfits and wear it with pride as we do our bit to salute their gallantry – all year round!
Share this article on FacebookHere are some of the other times for wearing a firefighter costume, so even after you’ve packed all of the scarecrows, ghosts and other props away in storage for another year and you eaten the last of the tricks you collected, there are plenty of times for getting that costume out of the dressing up box.
Everyone looks forward to that special day and the lucky ones are those who get both presents and a costume party! And can you think of a better theme for the party and the present? That’s right, a Fireman or Firewoman costume or fire fighting costume accessories make great presents and the fire fighter theme has to be one of the most popular.
International Firefighters' Day
Did you know that many people celebrate International Firefighters' Day on May 4? Traditionally, the day was celebrated as Saint Florian’s Day, the patron saint of firefighters. According to legend, Florian, a general in the Roman Army, rescued a whole village from fire by using a single bucket of water to put the flames out. Thanks to the efforts of an Australian named JJ Edmondson, May 4 is now a global celebration of the dedicated heroes who risk their lives every day to protect us from harm. Okay; in Australia they have the Red Balloon Day as their celebration as well, but can we celebrate these heroes too much?
On International Firefighters’ Day, people commonly wear a special red and blue ribbon and these colours are perfect to be used in any party decoration theme. The red symbolises fire and the blue symbolises water. It doesn’t matter where you use the colours it’s just enough that you’re showing the world’s firefighters your support.
And as firefighters exist around the world, after all it’s not called International Firefighters’ Day for nothing, so why not search out a firefighter costume in the style of your own firemen and women? After all, bravery wears many different uniforms and it doesn’t matter where in the world you are, fire fighters are heroes in any language.
So when you're taking off your fire fighter costumes after the fun of Halloween it doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t be wearing it for another year as there will be many opportunities to wear it again during the rest of the year, so take advantage of them and let’s show these brave heroes that they’re really appreciated.
