Tips For Making Her Halloween Princess Costume Safe Warm And Fun!

As I’m sure most of you parents are aware, typically a disconnect exists between making your children safe on Halloween night and having the most fun on the planet. If you live in the colder climates, for example, you think your young superman or Little Bo Peep should wear a coat to keep warm, but that can ruin the whole effect of the costume for our little ones. Those beautiful glittery shoes are traded in for the more practical sneakers on the big night. What’s fun and magical about that?

If your little girl is planning on dressing up as a princess for Halloween this year, there are many ways to make her both safe as well as happy on that spooky night. You shouldn’t have to choose safety and warmth over fun. All you need to do is take some time in advance planning how to accomplish all of these objectives which will ultimately result in your little princess being the fairest one of them all.

When selecting a tiara or wand for trick-or-treating, you should consider options that light up. Not only do light up accessories make for extra fun for your little princess, but they will improve her safety as well. Now how magical will that wand or tiara be on Halloween night? If you plan on using a light up tiara or wand for trick-or-treating, you might want to consider purchasing a new one and setting it aside until Halloween since you don’t want the battery to run out in the middle of the evening when it’s needed most.

In perusing the costume catalogs in the mail, you might be attracted to those long gowns that reach the floor. While these dresses are most definitely beautiful in the catalog pictures, try picturing your little girl running through the streets wearing this dress on Halloween. Not only will the dress get filthy, but more importantly, it is very likely that your little princess could stumble in this dress when running from house to house gathering her loot. Don’t be disheartened. Many very lovely princess dresses are available with hem lines that land mid-calf.

As we all know, wearing a coat over a Halloween costume is always frowned upon by our kids. So think ahead and make her costume fitting for the cold weather. If your child plans on wearing her princess costume in a parade or trick-or-treating when the weather is somewhat chilly, we recommend buying a cape or cloak to help keep her warm. These princess cloaks are offered in a variety of colors and styles and you’re sure to find one that matches her attire and meets your girl’s royal expectations. Another option to consider is choosing a princess gown with long sleeves. In most instances she can wear another long sleeve shirt under the costume making it doubly warm.

Her princess ensemble is only complete once she slips into those glitterly shoes. Unfortunately, the majority of princess shoes are not truly appropriate for Halloween. If you are contemplating sparkly princess footwear, just make sure to have her “break in” the shoes prior to the big night, because a princess with blisters is just not fun. Whatever type of shoes she chooses, just make sure that they fit securely on her feet. No slides with a heel because those will just result in a sprained ankle when running from house to house collecting princess treasures. A good dress up shoe option might be ballet slippers since those will surely stay “put.” However, they will not function well if the ground is the least bit damp. You could always choose to lug your princess around in her own carriage. Just transform the household wagon into a beautiful Cinderella carriage with streamers and pretty painted cardboard and voila you have the perfect royal vehicle.

So with just a little for-thought and some imagination, your little girl’s princess costume will be magical on Halloween. Only smiles, warmth, safety and lots of candy of course and her night will be a dream come true.
