Enchanted Fairy Halloween Costume Ideas
There is something about fairies that make them so special and intriguing. These mythical creatures are described as beautiful and clever. On top of that they have special outfit which makes them ideal for Halloween or any costume party.
The good news is that there are many different fairy characters found in books and movies that can serve as inspiration, however you should feel free to unleash your imagination and creativity and come up with your own unique fairy costume. The following is a short list of Halloween fairy costume ideas for girls.
Simple Fairy -Find a pretty and shiny dress or bodysuit. Create a crown (you can also make a tiara) with the help of a rhinestone necklace and wire or shiny pipe cleaners. Remember that shininess is crucial for every fairy costume.
The next important step is to create appropriate fairy wings. Place a piece of crepe paper on a cardboard. Take a craft glue and draw wing patterns directly on the fabric and sprinkle some glitter on it and leave the fabric until it is completely dry.
Use scissors to get the shape of wings that you want and keep in mind that the fabric will be placed at the wrists and at the back too.
In order to attach the wings to the costume, you can use diaper pins or needle and thread. If you are preparing this costume for your kid, check whether the wire you've used can cause them problems.
Evil Fairy - Yes, fairies can be evil if they want to. These scary characters are definitely suitable for Halloween costumes. The first step is to find a completely black dress that you can modify. Use scissors to cut the lower part of the dress in a similar way like Tinkerbelle's dress. In order to get Tutu effect, sew some scarves in this area. With the help of some glitter and fabric glue make swirly shapes on the upper part of the dress. Don't hold your imagination.
When it comes to the wings, you can buy them in a store and save some time. It is best to use dark or black fairy wings. Place the wings on a newspaper and glue the designs you've made – spider web or some similar designs that look scary. Glitter each of these items. Take some time to find the right spot for the rhinestones and glue them. It is also a good idea to use black nail polish, dark jewelry and make sure that your hair is a little bit wild and messy.
