While Mulan has so many great looks throughout the movie, we’re going to go with her training costume because it’s the easiest to recreate and, let’s be honest, it’s pretty badass. All you need for this one is a pair of gray leggings, some white knee-high socks and a pair of black flats (all probably in your closet). Then, get a mint green robeand some dark green fabric. Tie some of the fabric around your waist and use more around your bun. Now you’re ready to save your father.
Grab your bestie, because this one is a two person costume! Let’s start with Anna. Grab a collared light blue shirt and throw a black vest on top. Finish off the look with a blue skirt, black boots and a pink cardigan to drape over your shoulder. And, of course, the braids! For Elsa, you need the gorgeous blue dress! Layer is over a mesh long-sleeved body suitto really complete the look and finish off the costume with a ice blonde wigand lots of shimmering highlighter. You’ll be so ready to build a snowman.
Princess Tiana’s gown look is so gorgeously intricate that a DIY costume just wouldn’t do it justice.

All you need for this look is a colored yellow dress and a white apron (and PLEASE don’t forget the donuts).
A Cinderella DIY costume is actually a lot easier than one might think. It’s all about that perfect blue dress for the base. Pick a dress that has a fuller skirt so that it resembles a ballgown. Add a large white beltaround the waist for a modern take on the princess’ waist detailing. Now it’s time to accessorize. You’ll need a blue headband, large white earrings, white gloves and a black choker. To fake the whole glass slipper thing, opt for some clear heels. No one will know the difference. Complete the look with a top knot you’re ready for the ball!
Once again, we’re going to go for the more casual look with this one because no one wants to be freezing on halloween in a shell bra.

Tinkerbell might not be a princess, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t a big part of the Disney family! Dress up like her for Halloween and you will definitely add some magic to the holiday. The look is super easy. Start with a strapless mint green dress. Buy some green flats and glue large white pom poms on them. Finish off the look with a pair of fairy wings. Go with simple shimmery makeup and a tight bun on top of your head and you’re ready to go.
Like the Cinderella costume, it’s important to get a super cute yellow dress for the base of this costume. Go for an off-the-shoulder dress, if you can find one, in order to mimic the look of Belle’s. The rest is in the details, and they should all be yellow! Shoes, earrings and a hair piece to clip around your top bun. Then, grab a rose (fake or real) and you’re trick-or-treat ready.

For Sleeping Beauty, we’re going to once again go for the more casual look. Start with a white collared shirt. If you can find one with flowy sleeves, bonus points! Layer on a tube top that laces up the front so it resembles a corset. Finish with a flowing gray skirt. Add a black headband and gray shawl to complete the look. Woodland creatures are optional.
