Disney has a long history of princess characters, but the official Disney Franchise hadn’t started until 2000. It came about when Andy Mooney, the newly appointed chairman of The Walt Disney Company’s consumer products division attended his first Disney on Ice show. Mooney noticed that several young girls attending the show were dressed in princess attire that were not authentic Disney products, and has actually customised Halloween costumes for it.
Female Disney Princesses
Here is a list of some of the most famous female Disney characters and what you’ll represent if you dress up as them.
Elsa has become a huge firm favourite in the past few years with young girls. She is introduced in Frozen as the princess of the fictional Scandinavian kingdom of Arendelle. Elsa has the magical ability to create and manipulate ice and snow.
Because of this her costumes are often of the style where there is an icy blue dress with sliver see through sleeves. There are official costumes for sale from Disney.
Snow White is the first and original Disney Princess where she debuted in her own film in 1937. She is described as a beautiful young princess, described by her evil stepmother’s Magic Mirror as having “hair as black as ebony, lips as red as the rose, skin as white as snow”. She is forced to seek refuge in the home of the seven dwarfs.
There are many variations in this Disney Princess fancy dress idea. There are long and short dresses available from unofficial and official stockists of the brand, so there is plenty of choice for you to choose from.
Cinderella was originally released in 1950. Forced into servitude by her evil stepmother and her two cruel stepsisters, Cinderella dreams of going to the ball. When all seems lost, her fairy godmother allows her to attend.
Cinderella has two key outfits that she wears during the portion of the movie, her ball gown (with the iconic glass slippers) and her servant dress which looks to be made of rags. The earlier outfit is available from Disney for children, whereas the rags outfit might be better off to make at home.
