Whether you’re going for a full costume or just want to do a cheeky little nod to the theme, Oktoberfest accessories are an essential part of any type of beer fest event. Luckily for you, CostumeBox has everything you need for the perfect head-to-toe costume from an excellent hat to Oktoberfest suspenders. Plus, we offer fast and free delivery for all orders over $99!
Get Ahead, Oktoberfest Style
The ultimate Oktoberfest costume accessory is an Oktoberfest hat, and at CostumeBox we have a huge range of different styles to suit any Wiesn costume. If you’re going for a traditional Oktoberfest costume with lederhosen and suspenders, you might want to choose an alpine-style Oktoberfest hat to complete the look. We've got heaps of colours to choose from, including ones featuring the iconic blue and white diamonds of the Bavarian flag.
While traditionally it was men that wore the iconic wool and felt Alpine hats with the natty little brims, they have become a lot more common for women as well, as they now come in many colours. Women’s hats are often a little narrower than the men’s and are often dressed up with a brooch or feather.
If you’re being more literal in your costuming, why not wear a beer hat? After all, nothing says Oktoberfest quite like an oversized stein perched on your head. Plus, it’s a lot easier than balancing an actual mug of beer on your head.
Ladies (or indeed gentlemen) might want to wear one of our amazing Oktoberfest wigs, so you can give yourself the full Heidi-of-the-hills braids experience. As well as the standard long, blonde plaits hanging over your shoulders, we have ones with wires that stand up, for a really hair-raising look.
Alternatively, opt for a headband with Oktoberfest icons on bouncy springs. You’ll get plenty of attention as your Märzen beers bounce around your bonce.
Of course, we reckon all our Oktoberfest hat options are good, except for the plush hot dog one, which is the wurst.
Aprons And Suspenders
At CostumeBox, all our lederhosen and dirndl packages come with perfectly matched suspenders and aprons included, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add extras to personalise your outfit. For example, you can switch out your traditional lederhosen suspenders for a novelty printed pair of Oktoberfest suspenders.
Be aware that legend says that the way you tie your apron at Oktoberfest signifies your marital status. Tie it on the right-hand sight to mean you’re taken, and on the left-hand side to show you’re single and ready to mingle. It may not be true, but just to be safe, you might want to be aware of what your accessories are saying about you. You may also want to add a traditional woollen vest to keep you warm during a long night of Oktoberfest-ing.
What Shoes To Wear For Oktoberfest?
You can get away with just about any black shoes or boots, but although Germans are famous for the socks and sandals look, you should wear closed-toed shoes for Oktoberfest. Beer steins hurt when they’re dropped on bare toes!
Socks can be loose and slouchy for men, and are sometimes paired with leg warmers. Women can wear little white ankle socks with a frill over their boots. Everyone can wear the most famous style of knee-high decorative knit socks, and we stock several options in different colours, so you can choose your favourite.
As an alternative to a full outfit, you can also put on an all in one costume over your regular clothes. Try a dirndl-print apron for a costume in a flash that you can wear again and again while perfecting your potato dumplings in the kitchen. Or get a laugh with the six-pack T-shirt and show off what you could have if you put down the Oktoberfest Märzen once in a while.
Other Oktoberfest Accessories: Necklaces And Glasses
These are a great last-minute addition to any costume - if you’re throwing an Oktoberfest party, keep a stash of them on hand for those guests who show up without an Oktoberfest outfit. Just pop one over the head of whoever walks through your door and they’re good to go. They also make good party favours or prizes for whatever games you’re playing.
As far as great Oktoberfest accessories go, novelty glasses are a fantastic way to get in theme or add a finishing touch to your costume. We have a variety of pairs featuring different beer vessels – why not start your festival with the beer goggles already in place?
