Some may say that Disney costumes are just for kids, but we firmly believe that there's no age limit when it comes to dressing up as a Disney character. Especially during Halloween, it's the perfect time to channel all your favorite princesses, villains, and side-kicks (and watch all of the movies, too). Whether you're looking to go the classic princess route like Cinderella, or embrace the dark side as Maleficent, we've found everything you'll need to create a ~*magical*~ costume, and maybe you can convince your friends to go the group route and dress up as the whole cast.
Is there anything more classic than the original Disney princess? Snow White made her debut in 1937, and you can rock your own interpretation of her iconic look in 2020. If you don’t want to go the full gown route, you can opt for a shorter version, or grab some of the pieces below that you can dress up or down even after Oct. 31.
Tiana, the powerhouse princess of The Princess and the Frog fame, is the perfect idea for your next costume. From her gorgeous green gown to her silky satin gloves, this look can be extremely elegant from head to toe. If you want to embrace the cartoon side of the character, you can carry around a toy frog for photo opportunities. Pro tip: Since Tiana likes to bake, you can bring some beignets for trick-or-treaters.
Alice in Wonderland
Because we're all a little mad here, why not embrace the chaos as Alice from Alice in Wonderland? Create her signature look by pairing a blue-and-white dress with a large black bow, white tights, and black Mary Jane pumps.
Ariel from The Little Mermaid
While summer may be gone, there's never a bad time to embrace your inner mermaid. To pull off this Ariel costume, you'll first need a mermaid tail-style skirt, like this sparkly green one. Pair it with a purple top and red wig for a look that's unmistakably Ariel, and then add some trendy seashell jewelry to take it to the next level.
Belle from Beauty and the Beast
There are two ways to channel Belle from Beauty and the Beast: In her blue work dress, or her iconic yellow gown. If you want to go for the latter, then we suggest accessorizing this ready-to-go dress with yellow gloves, a half-up-half-down hairstyle, and a hand mirror that'll look cute on your vanity post-Halloween.
You don't need a Prince Charming to live your best princess life as Cinderella. Go as the character who has the best glow-up by rocking a blue gown, black choker necklace, and on-trend clear shoes. She might not wear a tiara in the animated Disney movie, but we suggest adding one just because.
Elsa and Anna from Frozen
All about the ice-queen vibes? Grab your bestie for this costume idea straight out of Frozen! All it takes is a sparkly blue gown and a blonde braid for Elsa's signature look. For Anna, pair this green coronation dress from the movie with her too-cute braided hairstyle.
Princess Jasmine from Aladdin
With Disney's live-action version of Aladdin being one of the biggest movie releases of 2019, it's no surprise that Princess Jasmine might top your list of costume ideas this year. This three-piece set has almost everything you'll need, and then you can really amp-up the look with accessories like a magic lamp. (Genie not included.)
Not all Disney costumes are sunshine and tiaras. Make your bid for fairest of them all with this Maleficent costume that's both terrifying and chic. You'll just need to pair any black dress with a cape, a bold red lip, and most importantly, a signature horned headpiece.
No matter if you're team Julie Andrews or Emily Blunt, we can all agree that Mary Poppins is an adorable costume idea. The best part about this outfit is that you likely already own one or more of the pieces. Just don't forget the umbrella!
Winnie the Pooh
We can relate to Winnie the Pooh because we also love honey. Go as the lovable teddy bear by pairing a red top with a yellow skirt and an ear headband. This honey jar-themed handbag we found will bring you compliments all night!
If you love attention and never want to grow up, then Tinkerbell might just be your Halloween patronus. Grab some wings, a green dress, and some glitter makeup for this sassy fairy costume. You can also opt for a blonde wig if your top-knot game isn't on point.
There's no Disney costume more classic than Minnie or Mickey. You'll make the cutest mouse in this red polka-dot skirt that'll go with any black top you own. Plus, those ears will come in handy for any future trips to a Disney theme park.
