Step 1: Choose a dress Decide on a dress that will be the foundation of your costume. Old bridesmaid's dresses, flowing party dresses with lots of fabric, and flower-girl frocks each make an excellent starting point. Step 2: Dress up your dress If the dress is plain, enhance it by sewing lace and ribbons to the waistline, sleeves, or hem. If you don't sew, use safety pins to hold the trimming in place. Add sparkle by gluing on craft jewels. Step 3: Add a cape Buy a cape or capelet, and decorate it with jewels if you like. Or, if you sew, make your own cape using a sumptuous fabric like velvet. Step 4: Crown yourself Buy a crown, or make your own from scratch by shaping craft wire around the costume wearer's head, and then attaching additional smaller pieces of wire, building a series of triangles around the crown. The tip of each triangle should point upward. Tip Make sure you use spray paint in a well-ventilated area. Step 5: Add a scepter Buy a scepter in a costume store and decorate it, or make your own from scratch by painting a plastic or wooden rod gold or silver. When the rod dries, crumple a few pieces of aluminum foil over one end to create the tip of the scepter. Glue a few jewels onto the foil end. Step 6: Show it off Put on the dress, don the crown, pick up the scepter -- and find your prince! Did You Know? Real-life princesses are not necessarily the daughters of kings and queens -- they can be the daughters or wives of any royal sovereign, including dukes, czars, or princes.
