Woodland Fairy Costume using Dare to Wear Ophelia top in Envy

Flitting through the forest on gossamer wings, casting magical spells, righting wrongs... who wouldn't want to be a fairie? Well, at least you can dress up as one for Halloween! Here's an easy Woodland Fairie costume that uses our Dare to Wear Ophelia top in Envy and our Harmony Leggings in Black. All you need to do is add a green choker necklace, some green fairy wings and some fresh flowers for your hair.


Prefer to be a specific fairy? Or just really love Disney? You can easily adapt this to a Tinker Bell costume by swapping the leggings for a green tutu and adding a fairy wand. Sorry, we don't have an exact image of this costume, but it will look something like this:

Yes, we know that fairies and elves are VERY different creatures, but you can also use the Ophelia top in Envy as the base for an elf costume. One of our favorites is the FIERCE Tauriel, "Daughter of the Forest" from The Hobbit. Get a set of leather wrist cuffs to tuck the sleeves into, and make sure you watch this easy tutorial (by Silvousplaits;) on how to get the braids right.

Let's see, we've mentioned fairies and elves... which enchanted forest creatures are we forgetting? Oh yeah, gnomes! Believe it or not, you can use the Ophelia top in Envy to make a fun, sexy Gnome costume, too. In the photo below, Crissy, our Operations Manager, is dressed as a Lawn Gnome... in its natural habitat. Is there a difference between a Forest Gnome, a Lawn Gnome, and Garden Gnome? We don't gnome for sure. We ARE sure that Crissy did not buy her hat at Gnome Depot. She made it herself! Want to know how? Ask in the comments below!

Dear Dare,
Every year, my sweetie buys me stuff for Valentine's Day that I don't REALLY want or need. I don't really need any more stuffed animals - I'm not 12! And even though I LOVE chocolate, do I really NEED any more chocolate? OK, yeah, everyone needs more chocolate! But still, what I really want (and need!) is some new outfits 'cause fashion is my passion...

Size Guide

Relax. Don't worry. If you don’t like the way it fits, you can return it… no questions asked.  It’s important to us that you LOVE the way Dare Fashion makes you feel about yourself!

Among the images for each product listing is a style-specific size chart. For our tops and dresses, you can get your Dare size with ONLY ONE measurement of your bust!

Please use the size charts as a guideline. Our fashion is made to these specifications, but due to variations in the stretchiness of the fabric and how it is sewn, there may be some slight deviations from this chart. But please rest assured, all of our styles are designed to fit a range of body types, with features such as stretch fabrics, corset lace-ups,  and spaghetti ties in the back to customize the fit.

And did we mention... if it doesn’t fit, you can return it, no questions asked! So buy with confidence. And if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us - we're here to help!
