A pictorial of various female character costumes and designs.

Dressing up in fancy costumes has always been a fun activity to do – especially on holidays – such as Valentine’s, Christmas and of course, Halloween. We women in particular like to dress up, dressed to the nines and having a good time. Whether its for a costume party down the block, cosplaying (costume playing) at a promotional event or for romantic role-playing in the bedroom, there isn’t a shortage of ideas.

Here is a pictorial of costumes from various video games, manga, anime, comics and film as well as original designs for your viewing pleasure. They range from simple and cute to extravagant and over the top. Some are overflowing with fabric and accessories while others leave little to the imagination. Hope these various concepts and themes give you ideas on what character archetypes you would want to dress up as or even inspire you to create your own unique costumes and designs. It’s all about having fun with what you are comfortable with and expressing yourself. Be safe and go costume play!

    I think the first costume is the best because it has the least to get in the wearer’s way–although the skirt may be too long to dance in.
