When it comes to creating a complete fancy dress outfit for your child, it’s not only the clothes that are important. Everything from tiaras and hats through to wands and swords can make a fancy dress outfit really come together and let’s be honest – how would you recognise Woody without his sheriff hat and badge or Bob Incredible without his eye mask? Even if your child just wants to have an accessory that resembles a character they love rather than transform themselves totally, you can put a simple piece of children’s jewellery on them or style their hair a certain way.
Take a look at our guide on to how to accessorise your child to ensure they look just like their favourite Disney
Hats play a big role for many Disney characters such as Woody the sheriff in Toy Story, Pinocchio,
Captain Hook and Little Red Riding Hood. If your child is going to a fancy dress party
, the hat can make or break their costume so make sure you think about the accessories as well as the actual clothes.
Every day accessories
If you are looking for an accessory that can be worn on an everyday basis, rather than something that is perfect for a party, then you should look into the shoes that your child’s
favourite Disney character likes to wear, such as Cinderella’s glass slipper that is easy to recreate with transparent plastic shoes.
As well as shoes, kids watches and sunglasses are also great and practical accessories that can be worn every day.
Tiaras & Wands
Some characters are famous for their magic accessories
, such as their wands, and if your child loves dressing up as a fairy princess this is the perfect accessory. A tiara is another great wardrobe addition
that can really make a difference to either a fancy dress outfit or a regular getup and they can transform into a princess
simply by wearing a pretty tiara with their regular clothes.
Disney characters are often famous for their hairstyles, from Snow White’s dark locks to Elsa and
Cinderella’s blonde tresses. You can buy fun clip-in extensions or wigs for your child to wear when they play dress-up with their friends and these can also be worn to children’s themed birthday parties.
Belts, Swords & Badges
Do you have a son or daughter who loves Edward from Enchanted, then why not buy them a toy sword or belt that matches their outfit? How about Woody’s Sheriff badge
in Toy Story or even just a badge that features an image from their favourite movie character, such as Sebastian the lobster from The Little Mermaid or Flynn Rider from Tangled? Disney-themed badges and belts can be worn every day with any outfit, while toy swords are best kept for fancy dress parties or dressing up times.
Accessories can transform an everyday outfit into something fun and exciting for your child to wear or they can be used to create a fancy dress uniform that can be worn to a birthday party and they cover everything from a magic wand for a princess to wear through to swords fit for a duelling prince.
