Halloween is coming and thanks to Disney’s new remake of Cinderella, everyone’s added the belle of the ball to their costume list. If you’re looking to complete the look, you of course are going to need glass slippers that won’t break the bank. (The new movie’s glass slippers were actually Swarvoski crystal and couldn’t be worn – and came in at £160,000 a pair!)
Of course, if Cinderella isn’t your dream princess and you’re looking for some Frozen Inspired footwear, all of these work as great shoes to compliment Elsa’s beautiful icy-blue gown.
Here are a few options for footwear you can dance the night away in!
Low, comfortable heel and enclosed heel and toe and subtle butterfly detail. Sizes 6,7,9,10,11.
2″ heel, clear lucite with peep toe and rhinestones. Sizes 6-12.
Ariel Clear Adult Shoes
Low 2” heel and enclosed toe with heart detail. Sizes 6-10.
3” heel with open toe and rhinestone detail. Sizes 5-8, 10-14.
4 1/2″ heel open toe d’orsay-style sandal with rhinestones and ankle strap. Sizes 5-12.
4 1/2″ heel, peep toe pump with rhinestone detail. Sizes 5-12.
But it’s not just the shoes that make a Princess Costume come to life! Cinderella and Elsa both shimmer and glitter in the light. If you need to add a bit more shine to your costume, consider adding rhinestones to your dress, makeup and hair!
You can glue your own rhinestones using Beacon’s Gem Tac onto fabric and shoes, and you can use skin safe adhesive (I suggest eyelash glue) to add rhinestones to your face.
Stones like the Preciosa Aqua Bohemica Aurora Borealis are a stunning light blue with a pink shimmer when turned in the light. Flat back rhinestones can be bought in almost any colour and size here.
If you’re working on a budget and want some sparkle, check out these low cost Czech rhinestones. Only available in clear crystal and AB and two sizes, but a great price for adding some glam to a corset or tulle petticoat.
Of course if you want to attach a lot of rhinestones, you may want to use a hotfix applicator and a selection of hotfix stones. These have their own glue the applicator activates – so simply pick up the rhinestone and set it where you want!
Last – but not least – is adding a bit of sparkle and shine to your makeup. These glitter options will give you the perfect Ballroom Look.
Graftobian’s Liquid Sparkle is a clear base you can use to turn any glitter into a liquid makeup that dries durable and long-lasting! Mix with your own glitter, makeup pigments, or either of the products below!
Glitter Dust! A polyester glitter that adds shimmer and sparkle to any look.
Shimmer and Glitz powders! Buildable colour to go from light shimmer to high-impact colour.
Of course you can always add a bit more glitter with hairspray, but some people might think that’s going too far. (I, of course, think the more glitter the better!)
Whether you’re this Halloween is all about Having Courage and Being Kind or learning to Let It Go, I hope these gave you some ideas to add some sparkle and shine to your costume this fall!
