If you have a child who loves dance, you probably have a closet full of costumes. You can re-purpose those old dance costumes into Halloween costumes pretty easily. Here are some easy ways to do just that.
Do you happen to have a yellow, blue, or purple ballet costume? You can add a simple crown to become a beautiful Disney princess. In our pictures below, these two sweet girls can become Belle and Cinderella by adding a crown.
Another easy way to turn your ballet costume into a Halloween costume is by adding fairy or butterfly wings. You could also add a halo of flowers as a headpiece. Any ballet costume with a floral design is a great start in becoming a flower fairy.
Sometimes, you don’t have to add anything at all to the dance costume as it is already designed to represent a character. In this case, all you need to do is dig out that old dance costume, and you are ready for trick-or-treating! Below we have a Rosie the Riveter, flapper, and diner girls. Most dancers probably have one or two character dance costumes in their closets.
Several dance costumes are designed to depict a certain era. These are great if you want to go as a 1930s, 40s, 50s, etc. kid.
These are just a few suggestions and ideas of how to use a dance costume as a Halloween costume. With a little creativity, you can probably turn almost any dance costume into a Halloween costume. We hope you all have a safe and fun Halloween!
