Finding Cute, Creative and Stylish Modest/Appropriate Women's Halloween Costumes

With all the skimpy Halloween costumes that keep coming out each year, finding modest Halloween costumes for women is not easy.

Sometimes it just seems like it is almost impossible. Especially if you want a cute, stylish, or unusual outfit.

Whether you want a modest costume for personal reasons or just one that you won't be embarrassed to wear. A decent outfit does not mean you have to wear something that is frumpy or unattractive. There are many costume ideas that are creative, cute or stylish.

You can choose an appropriate outfit that you can wear to a work party or your parents place.

Sometimes the best ideas are homemade, but if you are not going to be making your costume, here is a selection. We have chosen a broad range of looks, that should fit the tastes and preferences of nearly anyone.

And for those celebrate Purim, there are many outfits that would make excellent Purim costumes. Some are okay just as they are while some may need a few adjustments to fit better Purim themes.

Hope you like our choices, and at the very least have a few more modest Halloween costume ideas.

Sellecting the Correct Costume Size

One of the hardest things to gauge when buying Halloween costumes online is what size to get. Sizing is especially important to consider the closer you get to Halloween as you might not have enough time to exchange your costume for the right size.

These tips should help you get the right size the first time.

  1. Probably the one thing that will help you most are reviews. If there are any reviews, pay attention to any sizing issues.
  2. For online stores that have a lenient return policy, you may be able to order two different sizes, keep the that fits better, and return the other one.
  3. In general one can say that a lot of costumes seem to run small, so ordering up is usually safe. Hopefully even if the costume does end up being a bit too large, it is should be easy enough to rake it in.

Renaissance Women's Costumes

Rich and beautiful

These can sometimes have rather low or even risque necklines, but can easily be made more modest with an modesty panel or a lace scarf.

I like these costumes very much, but like anything else quality varies. I have tried only to show those that have good rating and consistent sizing. So even though many tend to be sized smaller than regular, we know which ones are which.

Most are reasonable quality, and at the very least the best quality for what you pay.

Prices range from around $30 to about $120.

Fun World Costumes Funworld Deluxe Renaissance Lady

The Deluxe Renaissance Lady is an excellent costume that does not only come in regular sizes, but also well fitting plus sizes as well.

The quality of the materials is good for the price. It hangs well, with no fuzz on the velvet, and all the stitching is neat and done well.

In terms of fit, this one fits true to size, and might be even a drop loose. So you should buy the size you would normally buy. According to one reviewer, the arms may be on the tight side if you have larger than average arms. So you should be aware if you have thicker than average arms.

At just under $30, this is a great costume at a great price.

Green Renaissance Lady Adult Costume

The Green Renaissance Lady Adult Costume is another very reasonable priced costume. The quality of the materials used, and the stitching are good, the style is faltering and the sizing is true to size.

Some advice in wearing this garment comfortably is to wear an undershirt under it. Also, it is a bit on the warm side. So if it is Halloween, or another time you want to wear a warmer costume, this costume is for you.

Price ranges around $40, depending on size.

Adult Colonial Lady Costumes and Pilgrim Woman Costumes

Are always elegant and can be a nice, patriotic choice!

Far from looking boring or frumpy, I think the colonial costumes are flattering to most women whatever their size.

These are probably the easiest costumes just to buy without having to make any modifications at all. They have high necklines and longer sleeves as well as not being too form fitting.

So if you want the least amount of fuss, and still have a stylish, appealing costume to wear these make an excellent choice.

Charades Women's Colonial Lady

The Charades Women's Colonial Lady above is a very faltering dress, made in a beautiful blue and pretty white accents.

The sizing is on the small side, so you may need to order a size larger than your normal size.

Should also work well if you need to wear it when it is hot, as the material is thin.

Forum Novelties Women's Prairie Lady Costume

The Women's Prairie Lady Costume is a well-made costume, with beautiful stitching and a fully lined skirt with thin crinoline. Though it only comes in one size, the white belt that goes around it makes it adjustable to any figure. The belt helps cinch any issues that may occur with the excess fabric.

One thing of note mentioned by many reviewers is that it may arrive wrinkled. You may find you need access to a steamer to iron out the wrinkles.

Beware polyester and can not be ironed the usual way with a normal iron.

Modest Victorian Costumes

Victorian costumes are another option that tend to be modest just as is, though some do need a bit of modification to make them acceptable, here again like the Renaissance costumes, adding a dikie, a high-necked t0shirt or scarf is usually all you need to make them modest enough for most of us.

AvaLolita Elegant Blue Long Princess Sleeves Gothic Victorian Dress

This is a dress that is made not only as a simple costume for Halloween, but is made to be used for Cosplay or in Theater productions.

The quality of the material and how it is made up is, is so that it should last as long as it is looked after reasonably well.

Modest Fairy Costume Ideas

There are really no modest fairy costumes available, unless you don't mind going in as one of the Cinderella's fairy godmothers, but you could buy one of the princess costumes, add a pair of wings and a matching/contrasting long sleeved crew neck t-shirt and your ready to go.

I came up with two ideas for a fairy costume, one for a yellow fairy and another for a purple fairy. Hope this gets you going.

_______________________________________________________________

Purple Fairy Costume

Mix and match a princess costume with wings to get a fairy costume

You can start with any princess dress of a color that you like. A good one is this Rapunzel costume in purple.

This dress happens to be a shorter dress, but there are even more princess dresses that are longer.

I think the thinner dresses work better than the more heavy velvet dresses, but even these will work as long as you choose the correct wings to go with it.


________________________________________________________________

After you have chosen the main dress you can add the next items.

To cover the cleavage you can either get a modesty panel or a thin t-shirt, for a dress with a wider neckline.

Next we can add a pair of wings for adults. You can select a similar color or go for a complimentary or neutral color that works well with the main costume dress.

There are many styles of wings, from those similar to the gossamer wings on the right to some that have a more feather look as well as satin or other material.

You can also make the wings if you like to sew or do DIY projects.

The colors are true to what you see and sizing is true to regular sizes.

There are quite a few made for Cosplay that are not only excellent quality, but are pretty true to the Disney story.

Here are some of the best examples you can find online.

For this costume, it does seem that eBay has some of the best examples that are faithful to the cartoon design in the movie.

_________________________________________________________________

Most of these costumes are from various Disney movie stories.

Snow White Disney Evil Queen Adult Costume

From the very first ever Disney film "snow White" we have the Evil Queen, Snow White's stepmother.

Like many of the most scary and villainous characters in Disney films, she is not ugly, which just makes her more sinister.

In her dress that covers her from heard to foot, this costume works well as a modest, but interesting costume.

Women's Lord of The Rings Costumes

One thing about the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit is that the clothes worn in the movies are pretty modest as Hollywood goes. Unfortunately there really aren't many women characters, but here are a couple of variations for Arwen's costumes, no costumes for Tauriel yet, probably will be here next year.

Women's Hobbit Costume

The Hobbit's are a pretty modest bunch, and their costumes are some of the best to dress in if you want an in character modest women's costume.

The hobbit women basically dress like renaissance or medieval peasants in earthy tones, including some brighter colors such as yellows, darker reds and greens,such as the ensemble on the right, with the addition of a cloak. They also tend towards curly hair, though this is not a must.

At the moment, before the release of The Hobbit movie release, there is no complete women's Hobbit costume, but you can rig up something for yourself either from things in your wardrobe, getting the separate pieces.

Gold Peasant Skirt

This is the basis for the costume, a plain peasant skirt works well for a Hobbit's women's outfit.

Rubies Lord of The Rings Hobbit Costume Feet

And don't forget the right footwear, or lack thereof, all hobbit have big hairy feet, and do not wear shoes.

Adding some curly fake hair to the feet on the left with glue and you should have some great looking hobbit feet.

      @TanoCalvenoa: It was very satisfying, and in the end there were quite a few costumes to choose from. With all the immodest costumes around it isn't always easy to see that there is quite a choice for those of us that would rather not show so much skin.

      These are great... my daughter went searching for a costume last year, and everything seemed too revealing for a 14 year old. (It must get cold trick -or-treating like that.)
