Is Snow White your favorite princess? Are you planning a royal Disney Halloween theme? Then I’ve got the best costume to pair with your Snow White, her prince. This Snow White Prince Costume is much easier to make than my other prince costumes!
Snow White Prince Costume
After the success of our DIY Prince Charming costume last year, I was itching to try another royal creation. I almost recreated my Prince Charming costume in blue and silver, like the prince in the new Cinderella movie.
Instead, I opted to make a totally different prince costume, an Easy DIY Snow White prince costume just in time for the release of Snow White on Blu-ray. Who says princesses have all the fun?!?
This is another costume that utilized a lot of material/pieces we already had on hand. In fact, just like our Jake & the Neverland Pirate costumes, I upcycled a blue Amazon gift bag for part of this costume. If you don’t hoard weird things like me, then you’ll have to substitute navy blue material of some sort.
DIY Snow White Prince Costume Materials
- Royal blue pants
- White button down shirt
- 1 yard of dark red fleece
- Brown/gold cord or ribbon
- 2 small button pins
- Navy blue material (I upcycled an Amazon gift bag for this part)
- Gold duct tape
- Brown leather belt
- Short “knightly” sword
With a base of blue pants, a white shirt, a brown belt and boots, there are only 2 key pieces you need to make: the red cloak and blue tunic with gold trim.
No-Sew Tunic for Snow White Prince Costume
I turned the extra large, blue Amazon gift bag into the Snow White Prince tunic. I didn’t have a pattern so I just used one of Elliot’s vest, to roughly cut out the shape.
Make sure you fold your fabric in half, so you only have to cut out the shape once. After having him try it on, I trimmed it to the right length.
I finished the edges of the tunic with gold duct tape. I tried to keep the width of the trim consistent as I went along the edge.
The curved edges will require smaller sections of gold tape as you try and angle the tape to match the curve.
No-Sew Cloak for Snow White Prince Costume
Snow White’s prince wears a red cloak, not a cape. A cloak is a much fuller garment. My satiny no-sew superhero cape wouldn’t really look right so I hunted around online for another idea.
I found this awesome video with an easy technique for creating a no-sew cloak out of fleece. Basically, once you have the fleece cut to length you fold over the top edge about 1 inch or so and cut small slits along the edge every 1 inch. Then weave your cord through the slits and the material will gather at the neck when you pull the cord.
The prince has a pendant of sorts on his cloak, I tried to mimic it using a couple of random button pins I had and gold duct tape. I started by covering two old buttons with gold duct tape.
After determining a good length of cloak cord, I knotted the cord to the pin of one of the buttons. I placed the other button on the back side, sandwiching the end of the cord inside. A thin strip of gold tape then finished off the edge of the pendant.
That’s it! After snapping a few
hundred pictures, 😉 Elliot asked if he could play outside in the costume. That defines a win for me, an adorable costume that he also wants to play in!
Go ahead and Pin this now, you know you want to! 🙂
About Walt Disney’s Snow White
Most people don’t know this but the prince in Snow White is named Prince Florian which is why I just call him Snow White Prince.
Snow White was released in theaters in 1937 and one of Disneyland’s famous dark rides, Snow White’s Scary Adventures is based on that movie. The ride has been updated with some theme changes and is now called Snow White’s Enchanted Wish.
Snow White is a prime example of early Disney movies and some people have a major issue with how things are portrayed. Basically there are plenty of old fashioned ideas that don’t work in today’s world, problematic scenes like true love’s kiss where consent isn’t given.
I don’t think the spirit of the movie is bad, and watching scenes like that gives parents the opportunity to discuss it with your kids.
