Disney Dress Up – Peter Pan, Tinkerbell & Captain Hook Costumes
Who Are Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and Captain Hook?
Have you ever thought of dressing up as one of the characters from Disney's Peter Pan? Peter Pan is one of the most popular characters ever in children’s literature worldwide. Peter Pan was the creation of Scottish writer J M Barrie, and the play Peter Pan was first staged in 1904. The adventures of the little boy who never grew up and could fly proved to be hugely successful, and the Peter Pan play and books were adapted into other productions and made into films. And, of course, in the UK Peter Pan is one of our very favourite Christmas Pantomimes! So although Peter Pan never grew up, he did have a lot of friends to share his adventures with. He lives in Never Land with the other Lost Boys, and teaches Wendy and the other Darling children to fly and takes them to Never Land to join in his life of games and fun. But every literary character has his nemesis, and Peter Pan’s is the evil figure of the infamous pirate Captain Hook, who has had it in for Peter Pan ever since he cut his hand off in a duel. However, Peter Pan’s best friend is the fairy Tinkerbell, who flies around trailing clouds of pixie dust. She is very protective of Peter, and can be very jealous if he shows too much attention to any of the others.
Disney’s Peter Pan
Probably the best know version of Peter Pan is the animated Disney picture that was first released in 1953. J M Barrie had bequeathed the rights of the play to Great Ormond Street Hospital in London and it took Walt Disney four years before he could buy the film rights off them. The plot of the film brings Wendy and the Darling children to Never Land, where Captain Hook’s pirate ship has also anchored, as Captain Hook is plotting his revenge against Peter. Some of Captain Hook’s pirates kidnap Tiger Lily, the daughter of the Indian Chief, and Peter takes Wendy to see the Mermaids. Wendy persuades the Lost Boys to return to London with her and be adopted by her own parents, but they are all captured by Captain Hook as they are leaving. Captain Hook also put a time bomb into Peter Pan’s camp hoping that the explosion will kill him. The trusty Tinker Bell saves Peter Pan and they go off together to confront Captain Hook and rescue the children and the Lost Boys.
