Using Cinderella as your starting point, the options for costumes are endless. The characters and personalities in the popular movie allow for plenty of wardrobe options, including the fair maiden herself. Wherever your personality best fits, be it Prince Charming or an evil stepsister, there is a costume for you.
For the Princess
Cinderella may have looked plain in her everyday clothes, but dress her up for a party and a transformation takes place. Give your Cinderella a shiny, flowing blue dress with the classic "glass" slippers (use shiny plastic slippers instead), long, white gloves, a classic black choker and a sparkly tiara. At the end of her evening, she will be more than fit to be swept away by her prince.
For the Prince
Prince Charming must be strapping enough to carry home his fair maiden. Give his costume plenty of royal trimmings, like crisp brown pants with a thin, yellow strip down the outside of each pant leg, shiny black shoes with a large, square buckle on top and a pristine light blue jacket with a medal of bravery pinned to his chest. Don't forget to add the yellow belt over the top of his jacket. This is where the prince must hang his honorable possessions, like a long, plastic sword.
For the Evil Stepsister
Cinderella would not be so lovable had it not been for her wretched stepsisters. If your daughter has decided Cinderella is too prissy for her taste and wants to be a bit of a troublemaker instead, dress her up as Drizella. Find a shiny, green dress with puffy sleeves and lots of volume around the skirt. You cannot forget to give her the classic blue hair bow and finish her pout with a dab of red lipstick. She will be ready to paint the town with her mischief and ill will.
