So you want to Dress up as Esmeralda?
You can also click here for more up-to-dat options for buying pieces for Esmeralda’s Costume.
Esmeralda is a great choice for a Halloween costume. It’s fun and being a Disney character’s costume it’s identifiable (which means more candy ). Plus you can wear the piece in your day-to-day life. Or you can buy a Pre-made Esmeralda Costume that are morelike generic Gypsies costumes.
The great thing about the costume is that you can buy all components that you need. So it’s an easy DIY costume.
Here what you need; A white peasant blouse, purple skirt, darker purple hip scarf, blue waist cincher or corset, a pink headband or scarf, and her jewelry.
so here are some items you can buy to make her costume or a costume inspired by here’s. (I’ll list three or so for each remember you can also check my Esmeralda Lens for more )
Comes in Blue
My sister just declared her intention to be Disney Esmeralda for Halloween this year, and immediately I directed her to your Squidoo lense (before you even made this post). Unfortunately, I suspect her lack of funds and dedication will make the costume a flop. I’m probably more excited about the costume than she is (susprise, susprise).
My plans to be Clopin this year also fell through, so we’re telling each other that NEXT year we’ll appear together as Clopin and Esme. I’ll keep you posted on whether we’re successful.
Aww, Thank you for liking on my lens. Good luck with your costumes, I hope you and your sister are successful ^_^
The site I’ll most likely be ordering from is HolyClothing.com I finally decided to go with the three piece concept; peasant blouse, skirt and corset. That way I can re-wear the items separately later on…now I just need to figure out which colors I want to go with.
As much of a French nerd as I am, I don’t care much for red…probably because during my teen years I would wear only red and black. And I cannot stand blue or brown because I used to work for Wal*Mart and I wore those colors 5 days a week for almost 2yrs.
I will E-Mail pics.
I found another site. Some of the dresses look more along the lines of the one Helen Segara wore in the musical. There are also some dresses which could allow someone to go as Fleur-De-Lys if they chose to.
I’m still in the planning stages of my costume…not sure whether or not I want to wear a dress and corset or skirt, top and corset or what colors I’d wear. But right now I’m looking for a way to do it cheaply.
I have seen an Italian site that sells Notre Dame de Paris costumes. Fleur de Lys’ costume would be easy to pull of. Esmeralda’s prison dress would easier to make than her green dress.
I tried to make a Notre Dame de Paris Esmeralda costume in 2010 and it end in failure . I hope try again someday. Godd luck on your costume ^^
