Fancy Dress Costumes for Halloween

Disney Fancy Dress Costumes

Disney princesses are famous for their extravagant gowns, the envy of young girls everywhere (okay, some older girls like them too). These dresses do double duty, as they can be used to imitate a specific Disney character, or as a nice dress for any occasion. When selecting a Disney princess fancy dress costume, your main concern should be the color. For example, Belle’s dress is bright yellow, while Cinderella’s dress is powder blue. Most of the Disney princesses are associated with a color, and that color will help you stand out if you’re planning a specific costume.
