At MOM COSTUMES, all our mom costumes are guaranteed to help you seamlessly blend in your environs, should your GPS fail and you find yourself out of your usual mom element, a suburban soccer mom at the downtown farmer's market where there is a drum circle and tribal dancing, for example.
Here are some of our current offerings. Of course, you can mix and match, as will sometimes be necessary, for instance, at a PTA fundraiser for your child's Glee Club.
