Dance in Leander: Turning Dance Costumes into Halloween Costumes

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!
