Fairy (or sometimes spelled faerie) costumes are what every little girl (and big girl) dreams of being for halloween. They are typically very girly costumes with lots of whispy fun fabrics. Another great thing about being a fairy is that they are very easy do-it-yourself halloween costumes that anyone can make from home! Every fairy looks different an interpretations are limitless! If you’re trying to find the ultimate magical costume of fairies, here are some ideas to get you started…
#1 Get a Fairy Wand…
No matter what your faerie costume looks like, one nice accessory is the wand! Fairies are typically (though not always) magical creatures…adding a wand to the look reinforces this idea (and also give you something to hold…) take a look at the fairy photos below to get an idea of wands…(add a star or poofball to the end of the wand for a nice touch!
Woodland Fairy Costume
If you’re wanting to be a particular type of fairy, you might consider the woodland fairy costume. These creatures are from the woods or “woodland” so your outfit should have green and brown tones to it. A few leaves as a head band or in the skirt add a very nice touch to this type of outfit. Also, consider a twig wand.
Fairy Wings on the Goth Fairy!
One aspect of this costume which is fun to play with are the wings. They can come in different styles from full butterfly-stle to smaller bat style wings. Either way they should be made out of a gossamer, see-through style fabric. Goth wings are nice and easy to make because they typically have jagged wings and are black! Check out the photos below…
Be a Butterfly
Fairies are very similar to butterflies in that they live in nature and buzz around and are considered very pretty fragile creatures. If you’re making your own costume at home, be sure to have the double wings!
Finaly there are plenty of fun things that you can do to be an adult fairie. Just think short skirts (ala tinkerbell), gold or silvery fabric is a nice touch. Finish the look with some gold dust on your face to give yourself some extra sparkle!
