Forum Circus Sweeties Tickles The Clown Dress plus Accessories

To complete the costume above here are the items you will need, you could change out the wig, tights and shoes for your own unique look.

Apart from the wig, all the other pieces are pretty good quality products that should look good and are not just made for dress up times like a fancy dress party or Halloween.

Just the right look for Sweeties Lollypop Lilly, but the quality might not be the best.

Funtasma by Pleaser Women's Maryjane-50X Pump,White Patent,8 M US
If you don't already have a nice pair of platform pumps, these ones from Funtasma are adorable.
A quality shoe that you can wear on other occasions as well, not just for dressup.

Smiffys Women's Circus Party Clown Costume plus Accessories

The Smiffy's Women's Circus Party Clown comes with most of the components,but even though you do get:
  • The dress with hoop skirt to keep the skirt standing away from the body
  • A bolero jacket
  • The bow tie
  • The stripey tights
  • And the jaunty pink hat
While this takes care of most of the accessories, but you will still need buy a few more things to complete the look, this includes the wig and the shoes.
You will still need to get a red Afro type wig, I like this one from Amazon

This great red clown wig that is both comfortable and has a great Afro look. The quality is pretty good for the price.

You will also need to add a pair or red platform Mary Jane's. This nice red platform shoes will round up this look just right.

And of course a nice red round nose.

If you want an exact copy of the look above, these pink/black striped tights are nice and opaque -- pretty good quality too.

Just so you know, those black shorts on top is not included.

Modest Minnie Mouse Costume

Who doesn't love Minnie Mouse? I think she make an excellent idea for dress up?

But is you are looking for a Halloween Minnie Mouse costume, you will notice that though there are many very cute costumes to buy, every one of them is very skimpy.

To get around this problem, you could make the costume yourself. Alternatively you could buy each piece separately, doing this makes it easy to end up with a reasonably good quality outfit that can be used for more than one year.

You should also be able to use some of the items separately or as part of a different costume.

Here are the Pieces That Make The Costume
Forum Housewife Costume, Red, Standard 

This beautiful dress works well for a modest Minnie Mouse costume, but could also be used for a 50's costume as well.
You can now add the accessories to complete the costume.

Mary Poppins Costumes

A natural costume for anyone who is a fan of Mary Poppins.

I think these costumes are fun to wear, look cute and are flattering yet still modest.

Through out the Mary Poppins film, we see Mary Poppins in many get ups, first in the never to be forgotten scene coming down from the clods with her umbrella opened out, her magic carpet bag, her feet sticking out sideways, wearing a warm coat and scarf.

Later we still see her still dressed formally but always some bright and fun touch (like the red bow-tie). But in the park adventure she goes all out in a totally frivolous white summer dress with a red band in the middle and a white hat and parasol.
