Purple Butterfly Costumes and Wings

Purple butterfly costumes and wings are particularly ideal for Halloween because of the color. Purple is widely used at this time of year either on its own or combined along with other traditional colors for the season.

Butterflies make a great dressing up theme for costume occasions through the year. Young girls and even adult women can have lots of fun dressing up in a costume with wings.

You can opt for some ready made outfits and dresses which come with graceful wings as part of a set. Alternatively, buy some purple wing accessories and use those along with a dress or an outfit that you already have. You’ll find both options on this page.

This fun themed outfit is something that kids can enjoy dressing up in at home, for school, for birthday parties and just because. There’s no shortage of times where they will delight in putting on a fluttering, fairy inspired dress or set.

⭐ Like many young children, my daughter really loves the color purple and it is also a popular choice for those who have grown out of that pink stage. Purple butterfly outfits make a great costume for Halloween.

Sometimes buying a complete costume isn’t really necessary at all. I am always putting together new looks with items that we already have. Normally this is in a made dash to create something for a themed party or for something happening at school!

This beautiful looking set above is described as a flower fairy outfit but it looks absolutely ideal for the Purple butterfly costume look that we’re going for. Kids can opt to dress up like a little princess or a fairy instead.

Since this set has lots of separate parts, children can decide exactly which bits they want to wear which I think makes it all the more versatile. My own daughter sometimes just wants to wear her wings or she’ll wear a little tutu and headpiece for dancing in.

She loves dressing up sets which can easily be mixed and matched along with her ordinary clothes and we’ve had many an occasion where we have even gone shopping with her all dressed up.

I love the fun and modern look of this set which consists of a very cute looking little dress and a pair of pretty butterfly wings to match. Bang on trend, it also has a cute black polka dot accent design. This is a fantastic looking choice for a slightly older girls themed outfit and made in a popular styling too.

This simple set of vibrant and modern dress, wings and headband could do with the addition of a wand and some hair accessories like ribbons (not included) if it is going to be worn for Halloween.

Black tights or leggings would suit being worn with it to start with. The bodice of the dress is very striking with the lace up look and would look cute worn with some trendy lace-up shoes. It comes in a range of child sizes.

For women, it is not so easy to find good quality ready made purple butterfly costumes. You can also look for fairy costumes as well. However, consider whether you really need to buy a complete outfit or whether you would be better off with just buying a pair of purple wings, a matching tutu and a headpiece or wand.

Of course, with this costume, it’s all about the butterfly wings! These terrific looking costume accessories with glitter eyes are fabric and will either hang down the back or have finger holds so they can be stretched out so boys and girls can pretend to fly with them.

This is ideal, I believe, as part of a dance outfit or for a school production where they are less likely to tear than wired versions. I believe that makes these much more practical too.

Since the wings are based on the design of this beautiful insect, it looks cool to just wear a black top and pants or trousers with it just like the actual body of this flying creature. If you prefer a fairy butterfly look, add on a cute little tutu in purple or black to match. If you are jazzing up an old outfit with this theme, you’ll just need to buy a set of wings to add on with it and perhaps a headpiece too.

What finishes off an outfit like this perfectly has to be a very cool looking headband like this one shown here. This headband is very useful for dressing up as many insects including ladybugs and even bees so you can get a lot of usage from it and not just for this particular idea. And, of course, if you’re feeling crafty then you could even have a go at making one yourself.

There are lots of very cute choices for dresses and outfits in a range of purple shades from pale, floating lavender hues to dramatic deep plums and royal purples. For dressing up as pretty butterfly princess, fairy or insect all year round, look for black or purple attire, a pair of pretty wings and a wand or headpiece to create a really gorgeous look. Have fun with this look and good luck with it. I hope you can use these tips to get just the style of costume that you’re really looking for. Children can enjoy pretending to be able to fly as they run about with their arms outstretched.
