2019 Oktoberfest Costume Ideas

Need another excuse to dress up? Well here’s a great one!

Every year thousands of Australians embrace the German tradition of Oktoberfest. And kicking off from Sept 16, this year is no exception. Oktoberfest, the world’s largest beer festival, is celebrated in Munich, Germany - but also around the world. In Australia Oktoberfest in the Gardens is celebrated Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide. And a little closer to home, the Wollongong Oktoberfest is the largest Regional Oktoberfest in Australia.

The festivals celebrate all that is great about german culture - the food, the beer and of course the traditional costumes. So whatever you have planned for Oktoberfest this year, Sydney Costume Shop has a huge range of German Oktoberfest Costumes and Accessories to have you looking the part. 

Ideas for Womens Oktoberfest Costumes

Dress up, literally! The dirndl is a ruffled apron dress worn by German women that consists of a bodice, or blouse, and a skirt. This dress was traditionally worn at celebrations, so fits right in with the celebration of Oktoberfest. 

Ideas for Mens Oktoberfest Costumes

Go with tradition! Lederhosen are the traditional short knee-length leather pants work by German men, and these were often teamed up with suspenders and long wool socks.

Add some Oktoberfest Accessories

With the original festival being held in Bavaria’s capital, the Oktoberfest theme is very much inspired from the Bavarian flag. So many blue and white accessories will have you right in the spirit of Oktoberfest.
