Chickens, bunnies and hula music? What you can find at The Costumer

Easter is a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. While it is a Christian holiday, it has roots in both Pagan and Hebrew traditions celebrating the Vernal Equinox and the arrival of spring. The Costumer has a full supply of fun items for your church’s Easter pageant to your personal Easter Party. Fill out our plot plan and check out the Easter party. The Costumer's  generic Easter plot includes biblical costumes from the era of Roman prefect Pontius Pilatus.

Every party needs an Easter bunny or a fancy chicken. Or maybe it needs something different?

Easter is March 31st, but on April 1, 2013, the 135th annual White House Easter Egg Roll will be held with a new theme. This year the theme will be “Be healthy, be active, and be you” First dog 'Bo' will be staring in the Easter Egg Hunt.  They are inviting followers on Twitter and Facebook ages 5-13 to join the fun on the South Lawn and of course let everyone know from their experience.

Are you thinking of having an Easter egg hunt? Everyone loves a ‘hunt’ no matter what it is.

I never realized how many calories the Easter candy had. Those Peeps looked harmless to me.

I think for you and me; we should skip the Peeps. You don’t need many of the Peeps to knock your diet out for weeks.  Although they are fat free, they’re loaded with sugar. About a row of four bunnies and you’re at 130 calories 8 grams of sugars, which means 32 grams in a serving of four.

You’re better off with those jelly beans. Each bean is about 6 calories—35 bean serving is about 140 calories and 37 grams of sugar. If you eat too many, it will mean a lot of gym time.

Let’s not forget the Cadbury Cream Egg with 170 calories each.

If you’re planning on overindulging, maybe you should do it while attending a spin class. I just found out the seven ounce hollow chocolate bunny has 1,250 calories. How depressing! I’m not going to look any further.

How about filling the Easter baskets with some things that might be healthy and long term will make everyone happy?

Summer is coming. Who wouldn’t love a new pair of flip-flops painted in a bright color? Bubbles are fun; add some jump ropes, lip balm, sunscreen, balls, stickers and coloring books. Water guns can be fun as long as the weather is good.

If you want to keep the healthy thing going, how about making a carrot cake, there are lots of low-calorie recipes and why not add some zucchini to increase the roughage? You can create your own low calorie chocolate candy with dark cocoa, a little butter and honey. Next add dry fruit and nuts and you’ll have an amazing treat.

Want to play? How about Hula Hoops for everyone, including the adults? We don't have the hoops for you but buy some and  add them to our  Hula Party CD? With lots of great moves, you're bound to keep down the chocolate bunny calories.

Hooping is a high-quality work out which will improve core strengths, tone your stomach and let's not forget your butt. This high energy workout burns about 400-600 an hour. It's right up there with Zumba.

Hooping can also improve your balance and posture and make you more coordinated. It might even bring back some great memories.

The hoop is also considered the ancient symbol for gnosis, (knowledge with wisdom). It is the perfect symbol of infiniture, the snake that eats its own tail, the cycle of death and rebirth, and the change within the whole.

Costumes always make a party more fun; get to us early and get your favorite Easter outfit or Hula CD.

Have some fun, make the party different; just get moving.
