Wearing an Angel costume can transform almost any woman into an elegant being that is known for innocence and beauty. Angels are universally loved and honored, and creating the perfect angel costume is simple. All you need to be an angel is a pair of feathery wings, a white dress, and a halo. Some angels wear robes and some wear gold jewelry to accentuate their richness and simple beauty. Angels are often regarded as messengers from God, so angel costumes should convey a sense of ethereal perfection.
Angels always wear wings because they need their wings for transportation between heaven and Earth. Most angel wings are large enough to look like they could hold up an angel and are made of feathers to help the angel fly. Angels usually wear white because it is the color of purity and innocence. Their angel costumes or robes are often made with layers of flowing fabric to give the angel a soft look. Many angel costumes are made of chenille or another light fabric that moves easily. Dressing like an angel should be comfortable and allow for almost any movement.
Most angels wear their hair down and many people who wear angel costumes curl their hair into beautiful ringlets. Angels are supposed to represent beauty and perfection, so their hair should be styled carefully and not messy. Angels also wear little makeup, only enough to accentuate their natural features. Some angels wear ballet type slippers with ribbons that wrap around their legs, while others wear glittery heels or plain black shoes. Angel jewelry is usually simple, such as a single golden cross necklace and small gold earrings. Many angels have golden accents to adorn their white gowns or robes.
One of the most important accessories for angel costumes is a halo. Most halos are golden and they may be made of metal or plastic. Creative women may want to make their own halo using tin foil and wire. Gold foil may also be used for this purpose. Some people believe that a halo represents God, and it is round because God has no end. It is important for a halo to be lightweight so that it doesn’t give the angel a headache if she wears it for several hours. The halo should also be strong enough to avoid breaking if it accidentally falls or is damaged while being worn.
Angel Costumes represent beauty and elegance, innocence and sophistication all in one package. They can be worn by both adults and children and will always look stunning.
