All Star cheerleading outfits
Cheerleader costumes that will give you something to cheer about
Go team! The cheerleader is as American as apple pie. For decades, all across the USA, young women have been putting on their cheer leading outfits and picking up their pom poms to cheer on athletes in a variety of sports. For Australians, we stock heaps of different cheerleader outfits that you`ll love.
What makes a great cheerleader costume?
There are certain recognisable features that a women`s cheerleader costume simply needs to have: pom poms, a cute skirt (usually pleated) and a matching top are all very important.
The pom poms need to be big and bouncy, to get the attention of spectators sitting far away. For the outfit itself, it needs to allow for maximum movement, facilitating all of the exciting moves and flips that cheerleaders are so well known for.
Different colours and sizes of cheerleader costumes
It is vital is that your cheerleader outfit has the right colours — otherwise people might think you`re cheering for the wrong team! We stock a variety of different coloured cheerleader outfits, so you can pick the one that supports your specific team (or, if you`re wearing the cheerleader costume to a fancy dress party, you can just pick one that looks especially great on you).
At Blossom Costumes, we sell cheerleader outfits in a range of sizes, too. You can get a great cheerleader outfits for little girls, teenagers, and women of all shapes and sizes.
Cheerleading costumes for men
When one thinks `cheerleader`, the stereotypical image that most people bring to mind is a woman. But in recent years, a few men have even joined cheer squads — it`s true! In fact, there is a long, mostly unknown history of male cheerleaders.
Did you know that the first cheerleader was a man? It was a University of Minnesota student, Johnny Cambell, who first directed a crowd to cheer in 1898. Before then, spectators had been comparatively quiet and respectful while watching organised sport. But after Mr. Cambell, there was no going back.
Cheerleader costumes in Australia
Cheersquads are everywhere in the United States, but they have never taken off in the same way in Australia. Oh, to be sure, the NRL give it a go, but it just isn`t quite the same. Maybe it`s because we`re a less `cheery` country, and tall poppy syndrome forbids too much encouragement of our sporting heroes. We tend to be more at home sledging the opposition than cheering on our own team.
But that doesn`t mean we don`t like dressing up as cheerleaders. Despite the paucity of cheersquads in our highschools, universities, and professional competitions, cheerleader costumes are still extraordinarily popular in Australia.
