Role play is a core part of BDSM and fetish for a lot of people, and what is role play without costumes? While you could think of the kind of fetish wear people often wear out to clubs and parties as a 'costume', that's not usually what people mean by the term; they're generally referring to a schoolgirl, secretary, pet play or other overtly fetishised outfit designed to help the wearer embody a particular role that is not quite their usual selves. Dressing up like this is a lot of fun, and can really help people get into the headspaces they're looking to explore.
A lot of kink and fetish play is about getting into the right headspace. A good way to prepare and set the scene for some kinky fun is to get dressed up! Sliding into latex or becoming a French maid, it takes you out of your usual mind set and gets you ready for sexy fun.
What are the best kinky homemade costumes?
Not many people have a little rubber dress hanging around or a gimp suit, but that doesn’t mean you can’t join in the dress up and cosplay fun. A plain skirt and white shirt with a tie makes a school girl outfit and pull on a suit to be a teacher, Boss or business man. An apron or overall makes you the cleaner and a pretty dress of any kind can make you prom queen. You don’t need to spend a fortune to role play.
Do you need a costume to role play?
Not necessarily, after all being naked can work for all kinds of role play fun. However, some role play is more fun with costumes and props. Playing doctor for example has more gravitas when you have a white coat. A cheerleader might not need pom poms but they certainly add to the experience. If you want to role play but don’t want to spend a fortune, pick key components from the role you want to take on and invest in just those.
Are costumes just for Halloween?
Not at all, dressing up to have fun in and out of the bedroom is good all year round. Maybe you want to dress up to go to an event or to get into character when you visit your local BDSM dungeon. Costumes can be used any time of the year and they don’t have to be scary.
