This is part four of seven days of beer-themed Halloween costumes. Today’s theme is German folk costumes. These are the Dirndls and Lederhosen usually associated with Oktoberfest in Munich. While we think of Oktoberfest as a beer festival, that’s not how the Germans see it. To them it’s a folk festival, and the Dirndl and Lederhosen (and Trachten) are traditional German dress. Not surprisingly, there are a great number of these costumes available, especially the Dirndls. In an effort to not be labeled a sexist by my feminist friends (and wife), I’ve tried to show nearly as many male as female costumes in this category. Enjoy

I love how all the guys are stupid-lookin’ and all the girls are hawt.
Whoa, whoa, Mark.
You think a guy with a Peter Pan hat, red suspenders and knee high white socks looks stupid?
