Christmas in July Mrs Claus outfit-- HELP!

Recommended Posts

Bestemor Claus

we have been asked to do a Christmas in July for a local restaurant/ hotel. They are asking people to bring donations of gifts that we can distribute to our veterans at the VA Hospital or the children at the Ronald McDonald House (both places we visit every season). We're excited. I have seen ideas for  Santa but not Mrs Claus. Any suggestions on what Mrs Claus should wear? It's hot and very humid here in July, but I don't think Mrs Claus should wear shorts. Opinions welcome please. thanks

What will Mr. Claus be wearing?

 

I agree with you on the shorts but how about a coordinating Aloha shirt & Muumuu?

I think Mrs. Claus would look great in a short dirndl.

That is the 1 thing that is nice about the Mrs. C gear...there is no set uniform or outfit that she is expected to be in  - she is just supposed to look like Mrs. Claus.

A coordinating shorts Hawaiian shirt or polo type shirt for instance will be great, as well as the the dress type pictured above or the more Scandinavian Bunad which are typically a bit longer in the skirt.

Saw these while pursing ebay...there appear to be others in various sizes and colors and the are a bit more "covered up" shall we say, on the top portion of the dress.

Bestemor - being in Florida I see older women wearing pedal pusher pants and light cotton blouses all summer. These in a red and white combo paired with red flats and embellishments for the blouse just might work and still look stately enough for a woman of Mrs. Claus' stature. I like the dress shown above but this other look might work if a dress is too much.

Hey I am ALL for the red/white shorts, sundresses, capris, or skirt with a cute casual top too!

Maybe something with some cute embroidery on it to give it some flare, style and cuteness...like I said before, Mrs. C., especially as a casual Mrs. C., pretty much has it wide open in the what to wear department!

I love the ideas from everyone. :Rudolph: When I go out as Mrs C in casual wear I sometimes wear red pants and a christmas print top.

Hi, 

What about a nice suit, with a pair of pretty Red & White capri pants, and white blouse? You could have red or white sandals to complete outfit. 

Just a thought. Or, if you like Green better, that would be good too. As long as you are cool and comfortable, you can have fun in the sun, being Mrs Claus, for Christmas in July.

Holly

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

    • Seeking recognition
      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Infringement? Make up your own mind.
      In the last couple of days, on several different social media and bidding sites, an item has been offered for sale that in my opinion is cause for suspicion.  I would like to bring that product to your attention.

      There is some disagreement over whether or not it is an infringement or not.  I believe it is close enough to be considered as an infringement, but that is not the only the reason behind my post.

      Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas

      Christmas is going to be a little different this year for families whose traditions include visiting Santa at Bass Pro Shops. Paul Davis, who spent the last nine years as the Bass Pro Santa in Ashland, will not be there anymore.
