Costume Characters Abound as National Unicorn Day Approaches

All hail the millennials and their never-ending obsession with all things nostalgic. Ya know, 17 million Americans can’t be wrong when it comes to the celebration of a magical, mythical creature associated with happiness, rainbows and sunshine. I mean… who doesn’t need a sprinkle of that in their Tuesday?

It’s that ache and longing for the simplicity of life before the world of tech took over, that drives our beloved Millennials to cling to their days gone by. Back when My Little Pony, the Funshine Care Bear and a rainbow-clad Trapper Keeper was standard issue. Add in the chaos of our current climate and the complexity of adult-ing in general, well, it’s no wonder that a fabled beast has become our obsession.

A quick google search offers up a plethora of possibilities when it comes to celebrating National Unicorn Day. From theme parties to one-horned happy hours, the options are endless and donning a magical mane is in order, no matter how you intend to celebrate. It’s no secret that Millennials embrace costuming - more than a third dress for Halloween (after all, that’s their favorite holiday!) “Unicorns are the zeitgeist character of this era, permeating all elements of pop culture from stationary to table decor to travel cushions and of course costumes,” said Gregor Lawson, CEO of Morphsuits.

So, for those with the legitimate concern regarding “what to wear” on National Unicorn Day, the Halloween & Costume Association has some spellbinding suggestions to pony up to.
