Monster High Draculaura Costume Ideas

Cool Girls Costume Idea – Draculaura from Monster High School!

draculaura costumeWhether your little girl wants to play dress ups or whether it’s Halloween there’s never a bad time to wear a Draculaura costume is there?   Draculaura is one of the cool students from Monster High and has a huge following among fans.

The daughter of Dracula she may be, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to look as good as any high school girl does.   She loves to brighten up her wardrobe with pink and we’ve managed to find a few of her costumes available for your little girl to wear too.

Let’s have a look at some of Draculaura’s cool costume ideas, although a word of warning if you don’t like pink you may not enjoy this page!

I’ve found a number of ready to wear costumes for sale which are perfect for playing dress up, attending a fancy dress party or just to dress up as your favorite vegetarian vampire this Halloween.   If you’d prefer to make your own Draculaura costume then you’ll find some great ideas here as well.

The first officially released Draculaura costume that was made available was the one I’ve featured in the introduction.  All you need to add to it is your very own Monster High Draculaura wig, add a little make up including her heart shaped birthmark and you’ll look fantastic!

Included in this costume is the shirt with attached vest and mesh sleeves along with the skirt and attached leggings.

As I said you will have to buy the wig separately and the costume also doesn’t include the boots which is a shame as I think they look awesome.

 

Draculaura’s Fear Squad Costume

Draculaura is a member of Monster High’s Fear Squad along with the captain Cleo and other friends including Frankie, Lagoona and Ghoulia.

If you don’t know much about Monster High School yourself the Fear Squad is their version of a Cheer Squad and Draculaura’s outfit is black with her favorite pink highlighting it (Frankie’s costume actually has a paler pink than Draculauras).

This outfit also comes complete with pom poms which look like they’re pink and black in the photos, but (I haven’t actually seen this outfit for myself) it’s been reported that they are actually red and white instead.

Draculaura Turns 1600

Is it Time for a Party?

With friends like Draculaura has the answer is a resounding yes!   Draculaura’s Sweet 1600 didn’t quite go according to plan, but it ended up being a great party with her friends and she even got to share it with best bud Frankie Stein who was celebrating her Sweet 16 – days that is!

Just because it’s Draculaura’s special birthday she got to wear a pretty dress and even had a pink tiara all of which you can get in costume form for any young Draculaura fan you may know.

This officially licensed Monster High costume also comes with the wig which makes it an ideal buy if you’re only looking for one Monster High costume to purchase as a lot of them are sold independently of the wigs.

The gorgeous dress is a replica of the one the doll wears and it has a zipper in the back instead of velcro, which I personally prefer. It also comes with a lace capelet which to be honest I wasn’t so impressed with, but I think the dress can be worn without it very easily.

The wig with the pink tiara really helps to add to the whole costume, now you just have to paint on a small pink heart under her left eye to replicate her birthmark and you’re ready to party like a vampire!

More Draculaura Costumes to Buy

There are a few other Draculaura costumes available on the market including a lovely dot dead gorgeous one, but for now I can only find this Scaris costume for you ….

Make Your Own Draculaura Costume

DIY Monster High Halloween Costume

If you want to dress up as Monster High’s own vegan/vegetarian vampire and you don’t want to buy any of the costumes above then you can choose to make your own costume from scratch or compile a few cool items to create your very own costume.

I’m not much of a sewer myself so I love the ‘compiling a costume’ idea, but I’ve found a great video for those of you who want to make your own outfit and I’m sure you’ll love it –

How to Compile Your Own Draculaura Costume

A Home Made Monster High Costume Idea

If you’ve decided to make your own costume then you need to think about who Draculaura is – firstly she’s 1600 years old and a vampire which means she does like some classic Gothic inspired things, although she does not like Victorian dresses despite her father buying them for her to wear to school!

Think of black with her trademark flashes of pink to add fun to this dark color, add a few classic touches like buttoned down blouses with ruffles or lace details. She does love lace, but one way in which she has modernized the ‘romantic’ fashion era is by injecting her own sense of fun and wearing lacy tutu/petti style skirts with fishnet tights.

Tall lace up boots are often a part of her costumes, these can be hard to find, but I do have instructions to make your own.

Draculaura’s Tutu Inspired Skirts

This are cute and gorgeous and are great to build your own costume around, simply add some black tights, white shirt and hot pink tank. Don’t forget her boots …… don’t worry I’m going to give you hints on creating these for yourself further down the page.

Another alternative if you have a plain white or black shirt or even t-shirt would be okay is to wear this shrug over the top of it.

Wear this over a flared pink, white or black skirt and fishnet stockings ……. or one of the tutu inspired skirts above would be perfect……. and you’ll have a lovely Draculaura costume idea.

Draculaura Boots

Now I haven’t found a pair of her boots that you can buy, but I do think that these would be cool and could work. I would change the laces over to black and I think it could work really well. If you’re not convinced then you’ll have to make your own boots instead which should be a lot of fun.

Make Up, Accessories & the Finishing Touches

The great thing about applying make up to look like Draculaura is that her make up is often smudged or doesn’t look that great because she doesn’t have a reflection when she looks in a mirror – always a relief when you’re trying to look like her!!

One thing you want to get right is her little pink heart shaped birthmark which is what I would always add last.   I would use a lip pencil to draw on the heart and then fill in with either face paint or even lipstick – the lip pencil will just prevent any ‘bleeding’ from the heart.

When it comes to the actual make up you have to remember that she’s a vampire who can’t be in the sun and is also a vegetarian (sometimes even vegan) and this means that she has very pale skin.   I’ve found a great make-up tutorial that is aimed at adults, but can easily be adapted for a child –

When it comes to jewelry I think the best thing you can do (if you have pierced ears that is) is to get two large safety pins and glue them shut.   Next put a stud ear-ring through the hole on the safety pin and put the stud in your ear.   This will create Draculaura’s favorite ear ring look without having to actually put safety pins through your ears.

Another thing that you should think about adding to your costume is an umbrella to keep the sun off of you and an extra little thing would be a small bat to masquerade as Draculaura’s pet, Count Fabulous.

Pirate Costumes for Children

Children Love Dressing Up As Pirates!

Great collection of pirate costume ideas for children as fancy dress outfits or dress up costumes.What could be better than to dress up as a pirate? Whether it’s for Halloween, a fancy dress party or just for play Pirate costumes are fun! I used to love playing pirates when I was younger and my daughter loves it now so buying some kid’s pirate costumes makes great sense. Old fashioned piracy fires up a child’s imagination…….it can also teach them skills such as map reading.

As my daughter has gotten older we’ve moved from the ‘treasure maps’ of the back garden to showing her our map book and getting her to find our route to wherever we’re going on the weekend.

Playing pirates can also foster a love for geography as my daughter loves her globe and atlas and even has a world map on her wall. She plots sailing journeys on them and when she sees a little island or country that sounds interesting we look it up and find out a little bit about it. Playing pirates has never been so educational!!

 

Pirates of the Seven Seas Dress Up Chest

pirate dress up chestNo Longer Available

As every wannabe pirate knows you keep your treasure in a chest so where better to stow your pirate costume and accessories than in a pirate’s treasure chest?

Set includes: Hat, headpiece, vest, belt, eye patch, play pistol, fake teeth, expandable telescope, 2 earrings, hook hand, 3 tattoos, sword, 12 play gold coins, coin pouch, treasure map and treasure chest.

Everything in this set is all that your child will need to dress up as a pirate anytime they want, which will probably include when you want them to go shopping with you!!

Having a complete set means that you have your eye patch, treasure map and telescope all of which are essential for pirates, now you can just wear your jeans or trousers and add these accessories, but there’s just something about the old buccaneer type of pirate that looks so ‘real.’ Let’s have a look at some of the amazing child’s pirate costumes that are on offer.

I hate that this dress up chest is no longer available, but I’ve kept it on this page as it’s a great idea and one that you could compile for yourself as an awesome gift idea for a pirate loving child.   Find a treasure chest you like and add all of the things listed above in it, or make up your own pirate dress up needs.

Anything boys can do girls can do too, grrrrrrhhhh!!

It’s not just boys who dream of being pirates, many girls do too! My dd wanted to have a pirate party when she was 4, despite the fact that most of her (girl) friends at that time were still having princess parties……she liked princesses and dolls, but being a pirate was cool because ‘… pirates get to see the whole world mummy – do you know how awesome that is?’

As far as parents go, who can resist some of these cute pirate costumes for girls and as they get older they can try on a gothic take on pirates in some of the ‘older’ pirate costumes for girls.

Ghost Costumes for Children

ghost costumes for kidsI think that a ghost costume is a great fancy dress outfit for a child, especially on Halloween.

Let’s face it what child hasn’t wanted to ‘play’ at being a ghost at one time or another – sneaking up on mom or dad with a sheet or towel over themselves and saying ‘boo!’ I can remember using my Nan’s spare sheets on many occasion and pretending to be Casper or some other ghost, my brother and I were always pulling her laundry cupboard apart – if not for use as a costume those sheets also made great forts when draped over chairs inside or between a tree and gooseberry bush outside!

There are several ways in which you can ‘become a ghost’. You can use a sheet as I’ve mentioned about (see also the Ghost Costumes home page), you can get mom to make you your very own ghost costume, or you can purchase one of the ‘very fancy’ looking ghost costumes for children that I’ve showcased here.

I have always thought that Casper was a very cute looking ghost and proof that you didn’t have to look terrifying to pull off a ghost costume effectively. These children’s ghost costumes prove that you really can add cute and ghost into the same outfit really well – don’t you just want to go ‘aaaahhhhh’?

If all ghosts looked this cute I’d be signing up as a ghost hunter!

I think this Baby Mermaid Costume is absolutely adorable. The legs have ample room to move in the ‘bunting’ part of the costume while the ‘fin’ part of the ‘fish tail’ is on the bottom.

The costume also comes with a cute headpiece, although depending on your baby this may or may not stay in place! A gorgeous costume in my opinion.The costume also comes with a cute headpiece, although depending on your baby this may or may not stay in place! A gorgeous costume in my opinion.
