We’ll start with fairy costumes for girls. You could see these as fairy Halloween costumes, but really, most kids will wear fairy and princess costumes every day of the year! You can find classic garden fairy costumes in green and purple, and also costumes that look like butterflies like the monarch. Of course, there are also Tinker Bell costumes for fans of Peter Pan and Disney Faeries!

All of our fairy costumes for kids include fairy or angel wings, but you’ll definitely want to add some accessories! These costumes look great with Tinker Bell wands and classy gloves. If your kid won’t put up with a wig, consider some purple hair spray that comes out after a shampoo or two. Then there’s ballet shoes, which come in bright, sparkly colors or flat black.

There are also sexy fairy costumes and Fairy Godmother costumes with a range of coverage. All of these costumes include wings, but you’ll definitely want to add accessories to complete your look.
