It’s Cinderella Day

It’s Cinderella Day

It’s Cinderella day.

As you may have noticed, in the last few years, famous movie costumes have become a popular outfit for little ones to wear in society. The most appreciated fairytale costumes are those inspired from the famous stories which have made the winter nights warmer and have fascinated many generations of little girls: Snow White costumes, Cinderella costumes, The Sleeping Beauty costumes as well as many princess costumes.

As a result, getting through your child’s trick or treating years without Beauty and the Beast costumes is unlikely, therefore you might as well make the entire thing a special event and view the movie once again.

Given the success of this movie, along with all the merchandising and toys that were created as companion advertising pieces, it stands to reason that this movie might just inspire one of the more popular Disney Halloween costumes this year.

Additionally, every year Disney also re-releases many time honored favorites and classics that also get the kids – and many adults – excited about the multitude of possibilities for the Halloween season.  This year, today, is one of those days.  Cinderella.

Options of what to be. Alice in wonderland, a lady captain America, Disney Cinderella, Disney queen are all available costumes ladies could choose from.

Since Belle could win any knowledge bowl, you could play a trivia game about the United States or for younger kids you could ask simple questions about the movie Beauty and the Beast and the person who gets the most questions right gets a princess prize.

Costume Designer Sandy Powell was recently quoted that the film is quite the departure from her recent work with Martin Scorsese on ‘mans-man films’ and the new Cinderella adaptation is her own chance to present a look for a ‘girls-girl film’.

It is amazing what this make believe time can do for little minds as they grow and indeed a sad day when they no longer think it important and that Cinderella dress floats to the floor to be found years later tucked away and forgotten.

No children’s party is truly complete with kids dressed up in costumes of at least some Disney characters, as the opportunity to dress up like some of their favorite comic book and animation characters is simply irresistible for kids.

Leprechaun Halloween Costumes

The best part of St. Patrick’s Day is that you don’t have to be Irish to participate. Other examples of secular holidays or celebrations where fancy dress are commonly used to portray specific characters would include; Valentines Day (Cupid or Eros) and US Independence Day (Uncle Sam).  Today is nearing the last day to order your Leprechaun Halloween Costumes.  Okay, so it’s not really a Halloween costume.

Over the next thirty-five years, Irish patriotism among American immigrants flourished, prompting the rise of so-called “Irish Aid” societies, like the Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick and the Hibernian Society.

In 1948, President Truman attended New York City ‘s St. Patrick’s Day parade, a proud moment for the many Irish whose ancestors had to fight stereotypes and racial prejudice to find acceptance in America.

In fact, up until the 1970s, Irish laws mandated that pubs be closed on March 17. Beginning in 1995, however, the Irish government began a national campaign to use St. Patrick’s Day as an opportunity to drive tourism and showcase Ireland to the rest of the world.

In recent times, the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Dublin have been extended to a week-long event called St. Patrick’s Festival, encompassing a spectacular fireworks display (Skyfest), open-air music, street theater and the traditional parade.
