Little girls love having an excuse to dress up and Christmas is no exception. It's the perfect time of year to expand their collection of fancy dress costumes and add a festive twist. The schools will probably be holding nativity plays as the end of the school year approaches, so a costume will be necessary for this, too.
With the nativity play coming up, lots of little girls are going to be waiting to find out which part they got. It could be that they are playing Mary or they might be an angel. There are lots of different roles for girls to play in the nativity - but whatever the part, it will require a costume of some sort.
Sometimes the school will provide the costume, or at least part of it, but often the family will need to supplement it. Accessories are almost as important as the main costume so be prepared to get these and ensure the whole outfit comes together.
The nativity has a lot of different characters that little girls can dress up as, but there are a range of other costumes that will work well at Christmas time. A lot of little girls dress up as a queen at Christmas time, playing the part of King Herod's wife. Even though she isn't mentioned in the traditional story, there are often costumes available as it is an ideal way for schools to bring another character into the nativity play.
If your little girl wants to dress up as something else, there is the option of dressing up as the shining star or even as a snowflake. The weather can be notoriously unpredictable in the winter but the traditional white Christmas scene is still hoped for. Your little girl may love the idea of dressing up as a snow flake fairy in the hope that they can make the snow come in time for December 25th!
A lot of the outfits for little girls need the finishing touches to make them really work so make sure you don't forget about them. An angel needs to have her wings and a halo as well. If she doesn't have the halo, she may be mistaken for a fairy instead. Of course, if your little girl is dressing up as a fairy, you need to make sure she has her wand.
You can have a bit of fun with make up as well. If you're opting for the star outfit, you might want to add some glitter for that extra bit of sparkle. This can easily be put into hair or even on the cheeks and hands to create a fun effect. If you are going for an elf costume, don't forget to apply some red circles to the cheeks to complete this look.
You can be sure that all the outfits and costumes available are of a high quality and will last for years to come. They can be brought back out the following year or even used for other events in the future. Halloween is one option when kids love to dress up, as well as themed birthday parties. A lot of the costumes can easily be adapted to fit other themes, ensuring they get the maximum usage.
