Fairytale & Storybook Costumes for Women
Fairytales have been around for thousands of years. Although many of these stories have been eventually printed into books, most of them are action packed tales and folklore that have been passed on from generation to generation, eventually becoming a part of our cultural fabric. Fairytales are thus named because they are often fanciful stories that involve a measure of enchantment, as well as a tale that is a bit far fetched. No one knows the exact date or historic period any particular fairy tale took place in, aside from “once upon a time”, which vaguely makes reference to some mysterious time period very long ago.
Since fairytales have been around for such a long time, they are literally a part of everyone’s childhood at one point or another. For hundreds of years, kids have been hearing these fictional stories involving a variety of heroines and villains as well as the ever-foreboding threat of various acts of violence. In spite of the potential for bad things to happen in these children’s tales, inevitably, most end with a near disaster and a convenient happy ending. The term “fairytale ending” refers to the simple fact that nearly all fairy tales do indeed end with amazingly good results.
