Whether for Halloween or a costume party, coming up with something to wear can be a challenge. While many kids might choose to be popular Disney characters such as Snow White or Buzz Lightyear, adults also can get in on the fun of dressing up in Disney attire. Disney costumes are sold online or at most retail locations. Or, you can always be adventurous and make your own costume.
Costumes consisting of two adults are one of the easiest Disney ideas to put together. You can go the princess route and dress up as Ariel and Prince Eric from "The Little Mermaid" or as Snow White and Prince Charming from "Snow White." Or, you could try a more classic idea and dress up as Mickey and Minnie Mouse or Donald and Daisy Duck. If you're dressing as one gender, try dressing like Geppetto and Pinocchio or the two wicked stepsisters from "Cinderella."
For family-themed costumes, have everyone dress as a character from the same Disney movie. For example, everyone, including the adults, could make "101 Dalmatians" costumes by attaching spots to white clothing and making dog ears out of felt attached to headbands; the adults could be Pongo and Perdita and the kids could be the puppies. Or, families could dress up as characters from certain movies, such as those who have been put under a spell at the Beast's castle in "Beauty and the Beast." Adults could dress as Lumiere, Cogsworth or even Mrs. Potts.
Heroes and Villains
There are plenty of heroes in Disney movies. Choose a hero who is easy to imitate, and if you're making the costume yourself, something that's easy to put together. What's even more fun that dressing up like a hero is dressing up like a villain from one of the Disney movies, such as Maleficent from "Sleeping Beauty." Dress as a villain or hero who isn't as famous to keep people guessing.
Creativity has to come into play if you're going to use this idea. Pick anything from a Disney park in Florida or California and come up with a way to make it a costume. For example, if you've decided to be the Epcot ball, try and make it look more like the Epcot ball, and not a golf ball. Do this by attaching other items that can be found at the park to your body, such as signs for rides that appear at the park. Or, make a teacup costume. This can represent the teacup ride at the amusement parks or the teacups in the movie "Alice In Wonderland."
