Snow White Costume
A classic halloween costume choice for girls has always been the Snow White Costume. This is a fun girl costume. Even though it is a classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, and a Disney Princess, what makes it extra special is that there are two movie motion pictures in the works to bring Snow White to the big screen which means that this halloween costume is soon to become a very popular choice for girls! And it also means that you don’t have to go with the traditional “Snow White” look! Let’s take a look at what traditional Snow White costumes are out there and then we’ll take a look at the twists that you can put on this October choice!
Snow White Wig and Makeup
In the classic fairy tale, this princess is clearly described as being “the fairest in the land” by none other than the magic mirror! She is described as having “skin white as snow, lips red as blood, and hair black as ebony”. You’ll simply need a fair complexion, red lipstick, and a short-haired black wig (if you don’t have naturally black hair). Be sure to wear a red headband tied with a bow at the top to hold back your hair. Traditionally her hair should be bobbed and made to look as though it’s curling under, however wavy loose curls will also work equally nice. Bangs or no bangs work equally well as you can tell on the variety of wig choices that are available.
What the Snow White Dress Looks Like
Every little girl at some point wants to be this fairy tale princess – no exceptions. The traditional costume is very easy to distinguish. The basic pieces include a long yellow skirt that reaches to the ankles and blue short-sleeved bodice with a red cape attached to the back. Snow White is said to be the “fairest in the land” so this is a very neat, clean looking outfit.
Snow White Costume for Adults
This is also a great halloween outfit choice for the adult girls out there. It’s a very wholesome “good” character, so sticking with the traditional look works best. Long yellow skirt, short black haired bob with red headband and add a red cape and you’ll be a head-turning princess. If you did want to do a “sexy” spin on this princess halloween costume, you can still do it pretty easily by just shortening the skirt to mid thigh and adding some stockings.
If you have some friends that want to go dressed up as dwarves, this costume can become a great group choice!! The best thing of course would be to have seven friends so you could be “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves”!
What about a dog costume?
Yes! You can dress up your dog as this classic fairy tale princess too! You’ll find pre-made outfits at many dog clothing companies and stores. Don’t forget the red bow on the head! But please, only if it’s a girl dog. 🙂
Twists on the Classic Snow White Halloween Costume
As I mentioned, two movies are in the works remaking this classic fairy tale princess for the present – both take very different spins on the look for this character and modernize it quite a bit, taking Snow White in a very different direction.
One movie that is due to come out will be called “Snow White and the Huntsman” and will star Kristen Stewart (of Twilight fame) in the titular role. The movie promos give the princess a whole new – and very untraditional – look – one in which Snow White is dressed completely in armor including holding a shield and a sword! Notice her hair is dark, but not black and held back with a braid. A very modern look.
The other movie that is coming out that has yet another version of what they think Snow White should look like is the Brother’s Grimm: Snow White where Lily Collins plays the titular princess role. The costume that is worn in this movie is much more traditional looking, although the colors and pattern on the dress have been completely revamped and are very ornate and very beautiful.
