Children Fairytale and Storybook Halloween Costumes
Some of the most beloved characters known to both adults and children are those that have come from childhood stories and fairy tales. Fairy tales, although duly named, do not necessarily require fairies to be in them. Some of the stories do have fairies, however, in addition to gnomes, elves, trolls, giants and dwarves! The folkloric characters that come from Fairy tales may actually be legends that have developed through time. Very superstitious people that lived in ancient days believed in witches and demons and had difficulty differentiating between what was tall tale and legend. Stories got repeated over many generations, and eventually the narrator often told the story as if it were based on historical facts.
Fairy Tales usually begin with “Once Upon a Time,” leaving the time and place of the story somewhat of an ambiguous mystery. Sometimes the tales tell of graphic, almost potentially violent or frightening events. Although it’s not always the case, the storybook tales tend to end with a typical fairy tale, or happy ending, which always brings peaceful closure to the reader.
Your child will love recreating any number of Fairy Tale or Storybook characters for everyday dress up or they also make a classically cute Halloween costume choice.
