Never Grow Up With This DIY Peter Pan and Tinkerbell Couples Costume
The older I get, the more I appreciate the idea of Neverland. First of all, you never grow up, which in itself is pretty awesome, and second of all, there’s a rainbow in the sky that never fades! Plus you’d get to hang out with Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, two of the most iconic Disney characters there are.
How cute would it be if you and your S.O. showed up to your next Halloween party dressed as Peter Pan and Tinkerbell? Okay, I know that Peter and Tink aren’t a romantic couple, but they’re best friends and they stick together for better or for worse. If that doesn’t sound like a great relationship, I don’t know what does. One nice thing about being in a relationship is that you and your boo can tag team Halloween costumes. I teamed up with Beauty Editor, Misty, to put together this simple and adorable couples costume.
What are we waiting for? Here we gooooo! Off to Neverland!
For Tink’s little green ensemble, I added DIY elements to items I purchased. I cut points into the hemline and cut a sweetheart neckline into a green short-sleeve dress I bought. I also bought green glittery shoes to which I glued white pom poms. Tink’s wings were fashioned out of wire and iridescent cellophane. I added translucent glittery ribbon on the wings as backpack straps and sewed some more ribbon on the neckline to hold the dress up. For a more detailed look on how I made Tink’s costume, click here.
Like Tink’s, Peter’s handsome outfit is really easy to put together! I bought an oversized green polo and cut points into the sleeves and hemline. Sean, our Channel Marketing Associate, brought his own brown moccasins and his excellent modelling skills. I made Peter’s classic hat by sewing together two felt triangles and gluing on a feather I cut from felt. I also tied a fake rubber knife around his hips with some brown webbing ribbon.
Ladies, be nice to your BFs and don’t force them to wear tights. While some guys may be game, I would say the vast majority would prefer to wear pants. I found some skinny green pants from Abercrombie & Fitch, and they worked perfectly to complete the outfit. You can get a full tutorial on how I made this Peter Pan costume here.
Second star to the right and straight on ‘til morning!
Yay! Tink to the rescue!
All you need is faith, trust and pixie dust.
Always the sassy one, that Tink.
