The value of Fancy Dress costumes for the children

If you want to participate in Halloween, then you are supposed to wear a good costume. The selection of the costume is all about your thoughts and your personality. For kids, especially girls, they usually like a fancy costume, no matter what kind of event you are hosting. The fancy costumes are available all over the world. Even people that spend their days lifting concrete will partake in the festivities of Halloween. And if they are a father or mother, they will undoubtedly dress their kids up to participate as well. Not only in the traditional market, but the online market is also full of fancy costumes and dresses for the children. Giving a custom costume to your children is the better way by which you can reward your children and make them happy. For the children, these costumes are the symbol of emotional and social happiness. The value of the fancy dress costumes for the children is as under:

  • These costumes are always fun and exciting to wear. It shows the simple way by which you can change your girl to a fair doll or any other character.
  • Costumes can be a source of entertainment for the children for more than 3 to 4 hours, especially when the children are playing by their own.
  • Buying the best costume for your children strengthen your relationship. It is also a best way by which you can make your kid confident. For an example, if you have a shy kid, then you can encourage him to speak or act confidently behind the costume. By doing so, you will be encouraging your kid to be brave and confident.
  • Costumes help the children to forgot about their own personality and they tend to act like what costume they are wearing like if a girl is wearing costume of Cinderella, then she will act like shy doll. So the children start featuring them as the costume character.
  • If many children wear related costumes or make a theme then you can also make a play while wearing costumes. In some cases, some children love to have their birthday parties with a special theme. For this, all the children have to wear special, but similar costumes.


Costumes show the creativity of the person wearing it. For an example, if you have an artistic personality then it will be the best way to express your ideas and emotions too.

Kids love costumes

Costumes are great and can serve as an avenue for children to investigate and role-play. For example, children may dress up like certain characters from history or movies, like pirates, princesses or superheroes. They may also dress in uniforms worn in everyday jobs, like a police officers or nurse, or as a zoo or farm animal. Generally, young boys tend to lean towards costumes that backup stereotypical beliefs of being male and young girls are more apt to like costumes that back up stereotypical beliefs of being female.

It’s a well known fact that kids simply love costumes. I think it’s just the idea of being able to play dress up, be creative and pretend you’re something else that attracts them. Beneath the cowboy hat and princess crown, we have some very serious business going on and your children are learning skills that they will keep with them for their entire life.

I have heard of children as young as 2 being replaced by certain animals, princesses and superhero’s. Louise Bates Ames, who in an amazing pioneering child psychologist explains that when it comes to dress-up children’s first love and there “very favorite object,” is shoes. But why is that you might ask? It is because kids feel grown-up and important when they put shoes on and they can be slipped on an off in a matter of seconds. What convenience! Shoes also have so much variety such as laces and bows etc. and I think that’s also a draw for kids.

Children gain so much valuable experience when they play dress-up and pretend to walk in other people’s shoes. Recent studies have actually shown that children who participated in role-play actually had more empathy then kids who never played dress-up growing up.

My little sister who is now twelve still decks herself up and parades around the house in the biggest hats and dresses she can possibly find. I even still like to dress-up. I actually think all of us do. We need to give into the kid in us sometimes and don a new identity even if it’s only for one night.
