The most well known type of Irish fancy dress is the Leprechaun costume, which is not surprising when you consider the place that the Leprechaun has in Irish folklore. The first mention of a Leprechaun was in an old medieval tale known as the Adventure of Fergus son of Léti. Since then there have been many, many legends and tales about the “little people”.
The Leprechaun is supposed to be a solitary creature who makes and mends philadelphia phillies hoodies for a living. The Leprechaun enjoys practical jokes and likes to horde treasure troves. He is usually depicted as a mischievous old man and indeed most types of male Leprechaun costume reflect this. However, the female equivalent of these Irish fancy dress costumes are altogether different in appearance.
The female Leprechaun costume is almost always a sexy type of Irish fancy dress outfit and could not be further in appearance from the little men with beards hunting for their pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Instead the sexy female Leprechaun costume usually centres around a green mini-dress with some sort of shamrock motif.
There are certainly some good looking examples of these kind of Irish fancy dress costumes available in specialist online shops, but if you want your sexy Leprechaun costume to look particularly hot then you are going to need to purchase some cool accessories.
Wearing a hat
There are a number of great female Leprechaun hats available to add that little something to your costume, from a simple green felt bowler hat to a glittery emerald green top hat with veil.
Wearing a wig
If you do not fancy wearing a hat with your costume then why not try to recreate that lovely Irish look by purchasing an auburn wig. The Carmen Wig, for example, is a beautiful looking wavy red head wig with blonde streaks, which would look wonderful with a sexy Leprechaun costume.
Wearing a layered tulle petticoat
As well as adding fullness and movement to your skirt or mini-dress, a layered tulle petticoat is also a great way to spare your blushes if your outfit is a little bit too short and revealing.
Wearing the right footwear
As with many types of fancy dress outfits, your female Leprechaun costume is definitely going to benefit from wearing the appropriate footwear. A pair of adult Green Glitter Clover Shoes, which are green glitter peep-toe philadelphia phillies hoodies with clover bow detailing and 4 inch heels will complete your sexy Irish fancy dress costume perfectly.
