One of the most popular costumes for girls of all ages is also one of the easiest to assemble: the fairy costume. Fairy costumes are distinctly feminine and can be uniquely customized in the style and color of your choice. Of course, you’ll want to stand out and be remembered for your outfit, so here are several options to consider when deciding on a fairy costume
Good and Evil
Decide on your preference between a good or evil fairy. Differently colored wings help to distinguish between the two, as does your fairy dress. If you can’t choose one, don’t be afraid to create a hybrid fairy of with helpful and mischievous tendencies. After all, even the most innocent fairies can be tempted by dark powers.
Generic vs. Specific
Think about the variety of fairies seen on the big screen and popular television like Tinker Bell from Peter Pan or the Fairy Godmother from Cinderella. There are also generic fairies and pixies, as seen in artwork and comic books. Specific fairies may require extra planning because in order to create an accurate Tinker Bell disguise, you’ll need to find an authentic-looking Tinker Bell outfit and wand. Ultimately, however, Tinker Bell is simply a fairy dressed in all green with blond hair while the generic fairy version has so much more potential, limited only by your imagination. Other specific fairy characters like the Tooth Fairy are still generic enough that you can generally dress however you see fit.
One thing to always keep in mind is that you do not need to limit your fairy attributes to just a fairy costume. It’s safe to say that, in general, everything can be a fairy as long as it is somewhat feminine and has wings. Therefore, you can take a non-fairy costume, add wings, and suddenly you are the fairy version of the same costume. Example: If you are an adult, you can get an Oktoberfest Beer Garden Girl costume, add wings and instantly transform into the Beer Fairy. Or, if you like, put on a baseball outfit and you can be the Fairy of Foul Balls, aka the Fair Ball Fairy. Similarly, for girls you could find a popular princess outfit and transform your daughter into a fairy princess without difficulty. As you can see, there are an endless number of costume permutations that would work for a dress-up event.
The ease of dressing up as a fairy is also its primary benefit and by injecting a little creativity you’ll see it’s not that challenging to augment the outfit, creating a unique fairy costume that was effortlessly quick to develop and incredibly fun to wear.
