Carnival is upon us: here are 10 ideas for Carnival clothes for children of all ages, with a look at the news for Carnival 2020
10 ideas for Carnival clothes for children of all ages
Just before Carnival and our children have certainly already been invited to some fancy dress party. How do they want to dress up? Here are 10 Carnival outfit ideas for kids of all ages.
Buying a Carnival dress can be simple and immediate if the child has clear ideas and for weeks has been afflicting you by asking for the ninja turtle dress, but when you arrive in specialized stores or in those of toys you will find yourself in front of dozens of clothes of all prices.
The important thing is to find an agreement and mediate: you cannot spend sixty euros for a Carnival costume, the dress must be well finished (often from the envelope only a long piece that is difficult to adapt comes out), pay attention to the size, better take a larger one also because the dress will probably be worn over the usual clothes.
Having said that, here are some suggestions to please the children and the wallet and make the right choice.
If you have imagination, a sewing machine and a bit of dexterity this year try making a DIY carnival dress. On the net there are many ideas, tutorials and patterns to make easy and more complex disguises.
Sometimes one is enough tulle skirt or a superhero cape to make children happy. The tulle skirt is combined with a matching t-shirt to get a fairy, butterfly, princess or ballerina dress. It all integrates with accessories, such as butterfly wings, a special headband and fabulous shoes.
The cape is made simply with a light fabric, is applied over the crest of the favorite superhero and the disguise is completed by black, red or light blue clothes and a handmade mask.
Used carnival clothes for children
The Carnival dress will probably only be used a couple of times and next year tastes and ages will have changed and you will be forced to buy a new one. So why not buy a used disguise?
Baby Bazar is a chain of shops located throughout Italy where you can buy and sell used clothes and baby items. Carnival clothes are also found.
The For Sale portal offers many second-hand items, even Carnival clothes: there are corsair, Darth Veder, princess dresses and many others.
It is also worth taking a look on Ebay because there are always interesting auctions and the same dress can be found at different prices, both new and used.
There are many and for all tastes. On the Disney Store website, you can buy your favorite costume online (or get an idea to make one at home).
For girls, the costume of Elsa, the protagonist of the film Frozen 2. But there are so many other alternatives, from Rapunzel to Cinderella, from Tinker Bell to Minnie. You are spoiled for choice.
Even for boys, the choice is wide: from Captain America to baby mouse.
