Do-It-Yourself Fairy Costume
If you want to be a fairy for Halloween, a masquerade, or a costume party, it might get expensive if you buy all of the props, makeup and costume at a high end costume shop. Instead, look for articles of clothing that you already have at home or buy props and makeup at a dollar store. Have a fantastic fairy costume despite the financial difficulties of these times.
If you already have a leotard, body suit, or solid tank top, you can use one of these for the top of your costume. If not, they can be bought somewhere inexpensive, such as Target or Walmart . It will be a much lesser cost than if you bought a costume online or in a shop.
If you have a ballerina Tu-Tu, a tulle skirt, or any flowy skirt, these will work. It can be long or short depending on your taste. Try to find a color that would complement your top.
Ballerina shoes, flats, or even metallic sandals will be the perfect foundation for your costume. Choose from your shoe collection or buy at a good price from a discount shoe store, such as Payless . Also, you can buy cheap flip flops and clue on gems to make them extra special!
Your costume can go without tights, but if you choose to wear them then you can use thick tights you are already own so you can keep warm. Also, you could choose stockings you already own or buy metallic threaded ones to look even more sparkly. These are usually used for prom or parties, but you can buy them for your fairy costume.
You don't have to buy a deluxe costume makeup kit in order to be a magical fairy. The dollar store provides great resources. Choose vibrant colors for the eyes, cheeks, and lips. Use your normal foundation except mix some of it with some glitter. This will give your face a fairy dust look. Buy exotic looking fake eyelashes. You can also purchase plastic gem stickers at Walmart or a dollar store to put beside each eye or wherever you want to add some pizazz. Just have fun with your makeup and don't forget to experiment with new things!
This is the most important part of your costume. You can purchase adult or kid-sized wings; either size will do. You can find these at Walmart or another discount store. If you are able to find all the other parts of the costume by using things that you already own then this will be your only cost! (If you want to make your own wings, check out some of the videos below for instructions.)
These include crowns, tiaras, wands, or jewelry.You can find these types of things in the toy sections of dollar stores or other discount stores. Also, of course, look in the costume section. Some pieces can be purchased separately from costumes.
Put all of these together and you will have a magical fairy ensemble perfect for any costume party, masquerade, or Halloween occasion!
