Cinderella Costume
Total Time 1 to 2 hours Ages 13 to 17

Cinderella made from an old dress, things left around the house... oh and did I mention some bibbidy bobbidy boo from a Fairy Godmother?

You will be happy to know the dress now looks the same as it did on the wedding day (though I am thinking of being the White Witch from Narnia this year) and there really is a Happily Ever After!

What you'll need

  • A white formal dress
  • Gloves
  • Tiara
  • "Glass slippers" (clear plastic pumps)
  • Strip of black velvet for the neckband (with a velcro stick on closure)

How to make it

  1. Because I didn't want to permanantly change my dress, I used safety pins to add on what the mice in Cinderella sewed on. I used long white veil type material which I formed to make rounded tops which I attached with pins to the spaghetti straps of the dress. I used the same material to drape around my hips and the back, also attached with safety pins.

  2. I bought a strip of black velvet lace and stuck self sticking velcro squares to the ends for the neck decoration.

  3. Added tiara and white headband.

  4. Gloves can often be found cheaply at Halloween (I happened to have mine.... from my wedding).

  5. Shoes were popular at the time but a pair of white pumps would also work.
