Halloween Costume Ideas - Cheerleader Fancy Dress

Updated on April 12, 2011

Wearing cheerleader fancy dress to a Halloween costume party is a sure fire way to make a great entrance – not to mention a statement. 

If you’re intending to shake your pom-poms with wild abandon, as well and various other body parts, then you’ve come to the right place.

Or if you fancy something a little less wild but equally American, you could always opt for a Disney fancy dress night instead.

Otherewise, you can choose from a broad array of Halloween cheerleader costumes and get set for an entertaining night out!


Cheerleader Fancy Dress

If you fancy wearing cheerleader fancy dress – good on you. A night out shaking your pom-poms never did do a girl any harm.

And for one night only – you get to shake some real pom-poms ... and all without a linebacker in site (hopefully)!

A cheerleader costume pretty much boils down to a short tush-revealing skirt, skin-tight sports top, ankle socks and sneakers.

You can throw in pom poms, a baton twirler or a dance ribbon. If you’re really daring, bare your belly ... and really shake your thang in an ultra revealing cropped top.

If you’re an ex-cheerleader, you could always throw out few sporty moves on the dance floor. And if you’re not – I’d advise you to keep to some hip-shaking.

Usually looks just as good and certainly won’t hurt like a drunken attempt at the side ways splits will.

Remember – enjoying yourself whilst dressed in a cheerleader costume doesn’t actually mean you are one.

Avoid the need for sitting down for a few days – don the look, have a wild night, but don’t go too far!


American Cheerleader Fancy Dress

Maybe you want some all american cheerleader fancy dress?

If that’s the case, gimme a D ... gimme an A ... gimme an etc and ... gooooooooooooooooo Dallas Cowboys!

Ok that wasn’t great but you get the idea. Why not sport the colors of your favorite team?

There’s a few different costumes to choose from, as well as one or two that just scream ‘all american’ sports fan/cheerleader/hometown girl (or boy).

Why not strut your stuff is an outfit that declares who you are – a daring, fun lovin’ American girl that’s out for a great night and knows how to have one?!


Children Cheerleader Fancy Dress

The range of children cheerleader fancy dress is pretty extensive.

If your little girl has a costume themed birthday party or celebration, there’s plenty to choose from.

Barbie cheerleader costumes are popular, as are the High School Musical costumes.

Most come with the accessories, though you can still choose additional extras if need be.

A hair style in bunches, with a few sparkly hair accessories, some bobby socks and sneakers will complete the look.

There are lots of little girls that aspire to become a cheerleader when they’re older, so why not treat them to being a cheerleader for the day?

With lots of styles, colors and accessories to choose from, they’ll be the smartest cheerleader in town.


Dead Cheerleader Fancy Dress

Halloween calls for dead cheerleader fancy dress costumes. And why not?

A zombie type costume will help you achieve the ghoulish look - in order for you to fit right in with all the other horrors and spooks at the party.

The costume will look great with some additional zombie make-up – pale face, dark eyes, maybe even a scar or too – and you’re ready for some frightening fun.



Fancy Dress Pom Poms

Fancy dress pom poms allow you to shake more than just your ass.

Frivolous and full of fun, a pair of pom poms will enhance your cheerleader fancy dress outfit no end.

Choose from a range of colors and designs, none of which are hugely expensive.



Fancy Dress Wigs

Using fancy dress wigs will take your outfit even further.

Add a blonde wig in bunches for that extra touch - and complete the cheerleader look.

What's more, a wig will allow you the freedom to let your hair down - literally.

Using a wig means that you won't have to bother fussing with how your own hair looks - all you've got to do is tuck it up and pull the wig on over the top.

Great ... keep your hair on, whilst keeping your own undercover for the night!


Male Cheerleader Fancy Dress

Ok – male cheerleader fancy dress. For the boys that like to dress up as a woman for the night.

Or perhaps you guys just love to parody us girls?

Either way, there are a couple of cool costumes for you to choose from. And in case you're wondering why there is little choice - think about it.

Male cheerleaders are a little thin on the ground. Last time I looked anyway.

Still - what man doesn't enjoy spending the night dress up as a parody of a woman? We know you love nothing more than to let it all hang out from time to time. Oh and one last thing ...

... don’t forget the lipstick ...


American Cheerleader Fancy Dress

Cheerleader Fancy Dress Hen Nights

Getting married? Cheerleader fancy dress hen nights are extremely popular.

Don't miss out on one of the coolest ways to enjoy one of your last nights of freedom!

Your girlfriends and you can spend the night painting the town red, or at a specific venue, dressed in matching cheerleader outfits.

Or go daring - opt for some of the more hot and sassy costumes instead.

After all ... your hen night is all about having fun and waving goodbye to singledom.

Why not make the night a raucous, fun-filled evening ... whilst you still can!

      cosette - thenkyou :) Not being American, I'm more likely to get dressed up as a Queen Elizabeth the first or someone silly, like Rumplestiltskin. Cheerleader fancy dress doesn't work quite as well over here!

      drbj - you know what? I forget. I settled on topics to write about then hopped from one to another. The frog one isn't to do with fancy dress - that's related to a froggie theme. It will make sense - eventually :)

      Froggy - I'm waiting with bated breath, whatever that is, to see what costume you feature next. This one had everything a cheer leader wannabe could desire. Nice.
