Halloween is fast approaching, and I'm sure there will be lots of Disney characters and Princesses hitting the street. I'm hoping to see a few more of the more unusual ones, like the fiery and beautiful Esmeralda from one of my favorite 2D Disney movies ever, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. This is my guide for kids on how to pull off the perfect Esmeralda costume! If you are looking for a guide for adults, you can find one here.

The upper part of Esmeralda's outfit is a white puffy sleeved peasant-style shirt, which are quite common and available for a variety of ages and budgets. Above I've included two great ones that would look amazing as past of this costume, one for older girls and teens and another for toddlers and younger girls. Check them out!

Next up, we have Esmeralda's flowing and beautiful purple skirt. There are quite a few long purple skirts for kids out there that would work perfectly - my favorite is the ruffle edged skirt above, which adds a very unique flair to the look. For an authentic look, you'll want a dance skirt. On the right is such a skirt, that you can find in purple at the link. These are especially cool in how much volume you get when you spin around and dance!

Between the skirt and top Esmeralda wears a blue corset. Obviously they don't make those for kids, but a great alternative is to pick up a jangly blue belly dance hip scarf like the one on the left. Alternatively, you can buy some blue satin fabric and tie or stitch it around her waist to form a blue band similar to Esmeralda's corset.
Last but not least, you'll need to do up her hair! This is easy enough if she already has long black hair: if not, you can get a cute wig here. Esmeralda also wears a purple headband or scarf - you can pick up a similar one here.
So there you have it! That is my guide to dressing up as Disney's Esmeralda for kids. I hope you found everything you need and have a lot of fun at Halloween!
