The plethora of fairy dress-up items available makes this a piece of cake. You’ll need a pink or purple dress, a tiara, a wand, wings, sparkly necklaces and matching ballet flats.
Take a white dress with sleeves and tie a silver ribbon or rope around their waist. Throw their hair up into side buns and give them a black blaster gun to transform them into the Star Wars heroine.
You’ll need a black dress, tights and shoes and white golf shirt to create the collar. Add a black wig and part the hair into braids. Make their face pale with white face paint or make-up.
You’ll need olive cargo pants, black boots and a black T-shirt and hoodie. Pull their hair into a side braid and pop on a chunky pendant. The key ingredient for this Hunger Games beauty is finding a plastic bow and arrow set.
