Girls Fancy Dress

There's a very broad range of outfits to choose from:

  • Fairies
  • Princesses
  • Witches
  • Pirates
  • Clowns
  • Ballet Dancers
  • Fairytale Characters
  • Cute Animals
  • Historical Faces
  • Hippies and Flower Power
  • Pop Stars and Groups
  • Cheerleaders
  • Cowgirls
  • High School Musical
  • And many more

A costume will make a wonderful gift, a birthday treat, a lovely surprise - just make sure that you buy the one she keeps asking for!

Indian Girls Fancy Dress

Do you need an Indian girls fancy dress? If your daughter loves Pocahontas or she's playing a native American in an up-coming school play, a girls Indian costume will make for the perfect outfit.

Also good for little girls that love Tiger Lily from the Peter Pan story, an Indian outfit will give her an authentic look - more so if you braid her hair and add a few accessories.

This particular style of fancy dress is especially popular and of course any Indian costume for girls can be stored in the dress-up box.

It can be hauled out for lots of imaginative role play or for another fancy dress event, such as Halloween.

Girls Fancy Dress Red Riding Hood

Perhaps girls fancy dress Red Riding Hood costumes will appeal?

It's certainly a classic story, and any little girl dressed up as the much loved character will be easily recognized once she dons this style of costume.

Add in some white ankle socks and a cute hand basket to complete the look.

The best selling Red Riding Hood costume is the California Costume Toddler - shown bottom right - which comes complete with a folding cardboard basket.

All you'll need is the wolf!

Girls Fancy Dress Animal Costumes

A cool and fun form of girls fancy dress is animal costumes.

Amazon have a nice selection available, starting from babies and toddler sizes and beyond.

You'll find adorable bunnies, cute cows, endearing teddy bears and quite a few other furry creatures to choose from.

An Easter party would be a great time to buy a bunny costume. If you've got a little tiger running round, how about the kids Tiger Costume?

If you're on a budget - consider buying just a mask and dressing your toddler or child up in appropriately colored clothing.

As an example, a mouse mask with a white tee and silver or grey pants.

Or a puppy mask and some black and white clothing - plus a tail fashioned out of some scraps of material, then attached onto the seat of the trousers.

You could do the same with any animal mask, just use your imagination!

Historical Fancy Dress

A popular costume idea is historical fancy dress. You can pick something recognizable, a costume that's popular from the American timeline.

Historical costumes are ever popular at Halloween parties, as well as being great for school plays.They're also another great costume idea for girls that can be used simply for dress up games, party or no party!

      What an interesting topic, froggie. Nice collection of costumes. But it does lack something.

      Where's the froggie costume? What happened to the piggie fancy dress? Where's the aardvark mask. OK, forget the aardvark mask.

      Liked the hub anyway.
