When it comes time to wear costumes, many of us are drawn to law enforcement outfits. Maybe this is a result of all the detective shows we see on television or the fact that as kids, most of us had played cops and robbers. Back when we were children it is hard to find volunteers to play the part of robbers; we usually fantasized of being powerful policemen keeping the community safe.
The common fascination with crime fighting has made us idolize different forms of law enforcement people. Television shows showing detectives, crime scene investigators, special weapons and tactics (SWAT) teams give us plenty of reason to look up to these upholders of the law; the more action is involved, the more popular the leading characters become. It is understandable then that SWAT costumes are some of the most popular. They exude a kind of glamour that costumes for regular beat cops do not; besides, black is the in color these days.
As SWAT teams are composed of people of both sexes, SWAT costumes for men and women are in high demand for costume parties and especially for Halloween. The following are a few good sources of SWAT costumes for couples:
