Fairy Costume Ideas
The origin of fairies is shrouded in mystery. No one quite knows when the folklore of the mischievous creatures began, as plenty of cultures ended up creating every manner and sort of magical beings that became classified as fairies. Titania from William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Tinker Bell from Peter Pan, Zarina from Disney Fairies, and Navi from the video game The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time are all popular depictions of fairies in popular culture. Girls who grew up watching Tinker Bell might find themselves wishing to live out their childhood fantasy, while younger fans of fairies are already using their own imagination. That makes it a pretty easy choice when trying to select a Halloween costume and since costumes are sort of our thing, we’ve put together this easy guide to give you tips on how to transform yourself into a true fairy this year!
There are so many to choose from, aren’t there? You could dress up in a fairy godmother costume that emulates the classic film Cinderella, or maybe you add a little spice to your look with a sexy fairy costume. Or perhaps you have a little girl looking to dazzle her friends with something that’s both cute and cozy? There certainly is no limit to the different ideas you can use to inspire your costume this year. But don’t feel overwhelmed because we’ve divided up some of the best fairy costume looks right here. From a women’s fairy costume that will make you feel right at home at the Renaissance fair, to a Tinkerbell dress that will spark your child’s curiosity for an adventure with Peter Pan, you’ll find an outfit for everyone!
Fairy Costumes for Adults
No one said adult life would be ALL fun and games, but that doesn’t mean you ever have to grow out of using your imagination. You’re never too old to live out your childhood fantasy of turning into a magical woodland fairy! But which woodland fairy costume will help you live out your dreams? Do you want to frolic through the forest, or would you like something that will have you feeling ready for a night out on the town? Just take a look at some of the options you have waiting for you.
Woodland Fairy Costume
Many fairies flourish in the nourishing embrace of nature! So, what does a fanciful sprite who loves the wilderness look like? Well, just take a gander at this woodland fairy costume for women. The costume has natural greens mixed with lush purples for a look that’s as enchanting in the city as it is in the forest. You can wear this while you dance with your fairy friends in a field full of wildflowers, or you can head out to a dance club for a night of fairy mischief. That’s just how versatile this cute costume is, especially on the arm of someone in a woodland elf costume.
Looking for a more classic style? Something with vibrant purples and luscious pinks? Well then, look no further, since this sugar plum fairy costume brings you plenty of style in a fashion that’s both flattering and whimsical.

Renaissance Fairy Costume
What if you’re planning to head to a Renaissance festival, but knights, princesses, and dragons really aren’t your sort of thing? Well, you could just give up and play a riveting game of Pogs instead, but we think it’s probably better to wear one of our Renaissance fairy costumes to the fair! You see, it has that classic look that will make you feel just like Titania, the queen of all fairies. Just make sure to use a set of our fairy wings to complete the look (and no need to tell Oberon where you’re headed this time).
Sexy Fairy Costume
Of course, a large part of fairy mythology is about mischief. Sometimes it’s subtle and sometimes it’s not. This sexy fairy costume forgoes all subtlety and gives you a great look that’s sexy, confident, and completely regal! The costume brings together the look of a monarch butterfly with that of a beautiful fairy queen. When you wear this with a set of our black stockings, all the other sexy fairies in the land will bow down to your unstoppable look.
Tinker Bell Costumes
Back in 1904, J.M. Barrie created the character that would be an inspiration for generations and rejuvenate popular interest in fairies for a century to come! Tinker Bell wowed audiences during plays in 1904, and in 1953, Disney brought us the version of the little fairy that we all know and love today. She still captures the hearts of children and adults in her series Disney Fairies. If you are looking to dress up like a fairy this year, or you have a little girl looking to dress up like a fairy, then you’re probably looking to find the perfect Tinker Bell costume. We’ve got plenty of styles to choose from, but we’ve brought together some of our best below.

You may just feel like battling it out with Captain Hook and his crew of scurvy pirates when you dress up in this cute and classic Tinker Bell costume for adults.
Sexy Tinker Bell Costume

This sexy Tinker Bell costume is an option for women who want to cosplay as the lovable fairy, but also want to add a dash of sex appeal to their look.

Fairy Costumes for Kids
Kids have a wild imagination. In their minds, they get to have adventures in faraway lands, they get to have magical powers, and they can even find their way to Pixie Hollow! Well, with one of our fairy costumes for kids, you can help feed their imagination. Just take a look at a couple of our awesome choices of kids fairy costumes below.
Pirate Fairy Costume
Zarina, the feisty rogue fairy from Disney Fairies, isn’t quite like the other fairies. She’s not interested in hanging out in Pixie Hollow, especially when there’s a huge world out there to explore. That’s why she’s taken to the life of piracy! This pirate fairy costume brings together the whimsical look of a sprite, along with a daring adventurer style that will have your little girl ready to swashbuckler with bad guys as she searches for blue pixie dust. Just make sure to add one of our toy swords to the look!

Your baby definitely doesn’t want to be left out of all the fairy fun this year! We have plenty of fairy costumes that your infant can wear, but none are quite as colorful as this infant fairy costume. She’ll look like a little princess fairy straight from the pumpkin patch! Fairy dresses with cute little tutu skirts and a bright orange and green color scheme have never looked so adorable.
In this section, we’ll take a look at some of our fairy costumes that think outside the box a little bit. After all, there are a lot of fairies out there who aren’t named Tinker Bell, so don’t feel like you HAVE to dress up like the cute little green sprite from Peter Pan. Perhaps you want to be the infamous Tooth Fairy? She’s a fairy that every kid knows about! Or maybe, you’re a big fan of video games and you’d like to recount the adventure of Navi with a costume that’s based on Ocarina of Time? Well, here’s the place where you’ll find both of those kinds of styles. Check out these great fairy outfits below.
Tooth Fairy Costume
Really, when you stop to think about it, the Tooth Fairy is kind of strange. She’s a magical being who collects children’s discarded baby teeth. What exactly does she do with them? No one seems to care, since she always pays a pretty good price and she’s always wearing such benevolent-looking garments, like the gown included with this Tooth Fairy costume! It’s a classy and cute look for any woman trying to emulate the well-known fairy.
Fairy Godmother Costume
Remember the classic tale of Cinderella? The young girl turns from pauper to princess after stealing the heart of Prince Charming… but without the Fairy Godmother, the whole fairy tale never happens! That’s why we have to give some respect to her. She had the magic and the altruism to help out a girl in need! If that’s the kind of theme you’re going for this year, then perhaps you should try giving this Fairy Godmother costume a try or another one of our fairytale costumes.
Evil Fairy Costume
Not all fairies like light-hearted mischievous fun! Others like to make some REAL trouble and want to fly on the dark side. They delight in doing nefarious things and they should have an outfit that reflects their dark nature. This dark fairy costume brings you a look that’s sexy and a little bit evil. You definitely won’t be granting any wishes while you wear this slightly naughty little number.
Wood Elf Costume
Whoa! What’s Link from Ocarina of Time doing here? Well, let us explain. During his adventure with Navi, the two were nearly inseparable. This adult Link costume might not be an actual fairy costume, but it does provide a great couples costume idea for any woman looking to dress like a fairy this year. Just pair this costume with one of our many fairy Halloween costumes in this section and you can have a couple’s look that everyone will love.

Fairy Glitter Makeup
