It’s November, and girls (and possibly even boys!) all over the country will soon be needing angel costumes for Christmas plays and pageants.
Of course, if your daughters are anything like mine, they don’t need any reason at all to wear a costume. I remember them dancing, running errands, or even just hanging around the house playing dressed as all kinds of things, from princesses to mermaids to Winnie-the-Pooh.
I did some poking around online and found these five angel costumes that I liked. I think the first one is my personal favorite. Between the fluffy wings, the sash, and the long skirt, it has a sort of “princess angel” to feel to it.
This costume lets tweens dress as a “dark angel” but have a pretty quality as well. It is made of polyester and needs to hand washed and line dried. It includes the dress, wings, halo, glovelettes, and fish net stockings.
Here’s another option for tween girls who want to rock the “dark angel look.” This one, in my opinion, has a little less of a “pretty” look and more of a “fantasy/middle earth” kind of look.
It includes a textured dress with a rope belt, wings, a pair of glovelettes, leggings, and a halo. Shoes are not included, but I personally really like the chunky black boots they have in the photo.
This lovely costume had a quilted bodice, full length skirt, and both wings and a halo that are feathered. Some reviewers commented that the wings kept closing, especially while trick-or-treating on a windy night, so it was suggested that you tape or velcro them to stay in an open position.
None of my babies would stand for being put it in costume, but if you have a baby who is more co-operative than mine were, baby costumes are just adorable. This polyester, hand wash angel costume includes dress, wings and a headband. This an easy costume to put on over regular clothing. Several reviewers commented that the wings were soft, yet sturdy.
The image shown here is of the toddler version of this costume, but it also comes in a size small and medium. It includes wings, tutu, halo, leotard and tights. The shoes are not included, but ballet slippers would work perfectly with this. The material in this costume is fairly thin, so it you plan to have it worn more than 2-3 times, this probably isn’t the best choice.
