Princess Halloween costumes come in a variety of shades, many of them lame. If your kid is vying to be a princess this year, a quick trip to your mediocre Halloween store will probably yield something like this in a bag for $19.99:

Those who aren’t necessarily Hallowen enthusiasts or who look for a low maintenance Halloween experience may be content with something so sad (and nothing really is sad like a SAD princess Halloween costume. I reckon it has something to do with a lackluster petticoat). But as a princess costume aficionado of many, many years, I say either go big or home. And “big” is not limited to nor defined as pricey or even extravagant. There are plenty of princess looks that stray from princess-ly conventions, either in execution or aesthetic. Here are an assortment of upscale, middle-scale, and DIY princess looks:
