The noble prince is a classic costume idea, right up there with (and a highly suitable partner for) the fairy tale princess outfit. While the traditional Prince Charming look is highly viable, there are a few other looks that work if you want to dress like a prince, but also want to mix things up. Many prince costume ideas are inspired by movies, celebrities and even folklore.
Prince Naveen is the central character from the Disney movie "The Princess and the Frog." A gentleman from the French Quarter of 1920s New Orleans, Naveen is smartly dressed. This kind of outfit involves a white button-up shirt and khaki trousers. In terms of footwear, a Naveen costume includes brown-and-white saddle shoes, and the look is completed by donning a beret. A vest and tie are useful accessories to this costume, too.
This costume is modeled on the titular character from the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced movie, "The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time." The base of the outfit is a sleeveless, leather piece of armor which covers the torso, accessorized by multiple gold and bronze belts strapped across the stomach. The costume includes two additional pieces of armor which are worn on the lower arm, alongside brown or tan trousers. Round off the outfit by buying or making two large swords out of plastic or foam.
The classic Prince Charming look is based around the noble prince from Disney movies and fairy tales such as "Sleeping Beauty" and "Snow White." To start with, grab some maroon-colored trousers -- with a gold stripe along the side, too, if possible -- and a white button-up shirt to serve as the basis of the costume. You will need a jacket without a collar, preferably equipped with golden epaulets. This jacket may be black, navy blue or even white. Medallions, rings and other jewelry are a suitable accompaniment.
A prince transforming into a frog and back again is something of a recurring theme in fairy tales involving royals. Dress literally as a frog prince by wearing a green body suit which covers you from head to toe. You will need space for your face to peek out, but add frog eyes, made from rubber or glass, to the top to make your head look more frog-like. Add a gold crown constructed from plastic or even paper to get the regal look.
