If your little girl likes to dress up like a pretty ballerina then the Angelina Ballerina Halloween Costume is the perfect choice as a fancy dress costume. Your little one can look just like the little dancer from the pretty picture books in the Angelina Ballerina collection.
Who Is Angelina Ballerina?
The character of Angelina Ballerina is an adorably cute little mouse who lives in a village in England called Chipping Cheddar. She dreams of becoming a ballerina and loves to wear everything that a real life ballerina would wear.
What Makes Up The Angelina Ballerina Halloween Costume?
If your daughter attends regular ballet lessons, you may already have most of the items that are needed in order to create this fancy dress costume. If you do not then it is very easy to pick up all the things you need.
You can choose to order the official Angelina Ballerina costume which is available from many online stores, or you can source the individual pieces and bring the whole look together yourself.
The Ballerina Leotard and Tutu
To look like a ballerina, all little girls know that the most important part of the costume is the leotard and the tutu. Angelina loves all things pink so her leotard is a soft pastel pink colour with a pink tutu that is made from layers of chiffon material.
The Ballerina Shoes
On her feet your little ballerina will need cute ballet shoes. Some places will sell these shoes with the ribbon ties already attached, however it is quite normal for these to be sold separately.
This is not a problem as it is very easy to stitch a length of ribbon to the side of each shoe. To make your little girl look just like a real dancer, make sure to tie the ribbon in a criss cross fashion and secure them at the back.
Angelina Ballerina Mouse Ears
Angelina is a mouse so part of the costume has to feature little mouse ears. The perfect Angelina Ballerina ears consist of a pale pink or white headband with ears attached to the top.
You can make your own or purchase a set made from a soft pink fabric with a pink ribbon bow in the centre.
The Angelina Ballerina Book & DVD Collection
The inspiration for this costume comes from the book collection. These would make a wonderful gift for any budding dancer.
