Munich may have poured the last beer of Oktoberfest 2017, but that doesn’t mean the celebration has to be packed away for twelve long months. No, I’m not talking about wearing your lederhosen to the Christmas party or Maifest — that is rarely ever okay –I’m talking about the costume that’ll have you looking like you’re hitching a ride on the shoulders of your very own Oktoberfest mascot.
We’ve seen them before, usually in the form of a horse or other rideable creature, but this Oktoberfest edition might just be the greatest rendition yet, and the attention you’ll receive will surely be in the form of being a crowd pleasing hit.
Best of all, this German-themed costume is available in the U.S. and can be yours in time for this Halloween.
Put on a nice Bavarian checkered shirt, strap in your legs and off you go. And don’t forget the most important part to sell the look… a full liter of beer in a nice glass mug. Now you have Oktoberfest all year round, and since you’re technically not wearing your lederhosen, I suppose we can look the other way. Is it Christmas party approved though? Unless there’s an ugly sweater, the answer is a solid ‘no’.
