Fairy costumes have always been popular for Halloween parties. Go to any dress up party and you’re sure to find young girls and women (and men, particularly on the heels of Lord of the Rings elvish popularity) dressed as fairies.
The reason is easy to understand: fairies and elves have a classical and exotic look.
Moreover, the ample varieties in fairy costumes make it easy for women to dress uniquely, truly expressing their own fairy “flavor,” whether that’s sweet and winged, sexy, traditional, or kick-A, a la The Hobbit’s Tauriel.
And let’s not forget the accessories! (Can I get a “yes please”?) Awesome ears (see image at right), butterflies, flowers and more – you can do all of this and add your own special creativity to your gorgeous fairy costume.
If you are planning to attend a Halloween party this year, or host your own, choose one of the stylish designed fairy costumes and be truly magical. Here’s how.
Choose Your Fairy Style
There are many varieties of fairy costumes available in the market. But don’t stop there – you can craft one of your own.
Buy a basic skirt and tank top (try Etsy for cool selections) and add on whatever you’d like that’s truly magical.
You can opt for a classical gothic costume or a sensuous sexy fairy costume, or choose a famous fairy, such as Tinkerbell (aww!).
You can even be one of Sleeping Beauty’s protectors – remember the three fairies in the cottage? Or be a bippety-boppety-boo fairy godmother.
Glamming Things Up
Depending on what you choose, your costume should be elegantly designed and feature skirts, silk flowers, traditional pointed ears, wings and other matching decorations and accessories. You can also shop separately for accessories and add them to the costume to give you a unique fairy look.
Hint: You’ll find some COOL stuff at consignment and thrift shops, including filmy pieces of material and nifty shoes. And you’ll save beaucoup bucks!
Grab some cool ears, something filmy, and you’re good to go. After that, it’s all up to you and your imagination.
Now hurry and grab me a pumpkin – I’m late to the ball!
