Do you plan to be naughty or nice? This coming Halloween, finding the perfect costume is a breeze if you plan to go as one of Disney’s princesses. Choosing the right character can be a tough one as Disney princesses are often associated with little girls. That said, many stores now do sell adult princess costumes so you only have to worry about which character to wear.
If you plan on playing it nice then the Princess Aurora, Cinderella or Snow White works best for you. The three are the original princesses by the company and they play the same “damsel in distress” role in their movies. Aside from that fact, these women have the characteristics of quiet elegance and inner strength that show their compassion and kindness throughout the movie. Cinderella is the ideal character as she remains kind to her stepmother and step siblings even if they had done horrible things to her.
On the other hand if you plan on portraying a naughty princess then – Ariel, Jasmine, Mulan and Rapunzel are your princesses. These four characters show cunningness in the way they solve their problems and even if they were afraid to do things, they were determined in reaching their goals. They also portray the changing roles of women in the society– from being submissive to taking up active roles either in the political arena or even in their own lives. Mulan is the perfect example as she hides her gender to enter the army and fight actively in the battlefield.
Beauty and Brains
Beauty and brains together? Belle, Pocahontas and Tiana are just three of the characters that you want to be associated with. Belle is not only beautiful and intelligent (helping her father by taking the beast’s punishment) but also compassionate (helping the beast out). Pocahontas, on the other hand, prevents bloodshed by acting as an ambassador for her father and thus hampers any complications between the tribe and the English settlers. Tiana is the epitome of the modern woman as she is independent (works in her own restaurant) and is determined to reach her goal. She is one of the princesses that do not rely on magic but works her way up through sheer determination.
These are just some of the Disney costumes that you might want to check out when you are looking for adult costumes that also represent an idea that you want to convey. What is great about these characters is that they have their princes so you can also get a couple costume that you and your hubby can wear.
