Disney Princess Costume Ideas

I absolutely love disney princesses and I am giddy with excitement each year when it's time to dress up for a story book character or for Halloween. So here are some ideas that are easy for you to put together and a great way to save money. I've tried to include each disney princess, I hope these help! J
Just a side note, I'm going to be minnie mouse this year. I know it's not a disney princess, but I just had to. I purchased a fifties style red and white polka dot dress, found a petticoat to make it poof up and put my mustard colored flats with it. Oh, and don't forget the ears I created myself with some black felt and an old headband I wasn't using. It's that simple.

With all of the ideas below, you can simply use clothes you may possibly already own or you can add to your wardrobe and still wear the clothing throughout the school year!

Simple and to the point. I would definitely go with flats unless you like to live on the wild side.

Love and so simple!

I'd go with a longer bottom here, but aren't those yellow converse just the cutest?

I'd go with a longer dress, but love the pinks!

Love this one, but a longer dress is important when teaching unless you don't bend over all day. 

Here's an entire page of outfit ideas for each princess!!!

I'll be adding to my list of disney princess costumes/outfit ideas for teachers!! I hope you all enjoy the ideas I gathered for you!

Have a great Halloween at your school!!!
