Miley Cyrus may soon star in a movie based on a book called ‘Wings’, where she plays a modern-day fairy. The story is very similar to that of the ‘Twilight’ movies, where she will be torn between the world of the fairies like her or the human world in which she is raised; her Jacob and Edward will be a human boy and a fairy boy. So in honor of Miley Cyrus’ new movie (possibly “movies”), this is a look at some of the best movie fairies that may also give you some great Halloween costume ideas:
Tinkerbell in ‘Peter Pan’ – Tinkerbell is likely one of the first fairies you think of when you think of movies that prominently feature the tiny winged ones, and her little green dress and blonde ponytail make her simple style one of the most popular fairy Halloween costume ideas. Peter Pan’s pal makes flight possible, so you can sprinkle glitter (pixie dust) all over your friends in a gesture that would make Katy Perry proud.
Tinkerbell in ‘Hook’ – Julia Roberts’ take on Tinkerbell has her in a drab brown costume, but she’s just as sexy as ever despite her raggedy look. She takes a romantic interest in a grown-up Peter Pan in this movie about getting in touch with your inner child, but hopefully Miley Cyrus’ fairy fairs better in the relationship department than poor Tinkerbell. Look for pictures of her grubby outfit online if you want to go for one of the more unique fairy Halloween costume ideas, and think Tink with a pair of pointy ears.
Elinore in ‘Wizards’ – If you’re looking for sexy Halloween costume ideas, then this fairy from one of the best (but most overlooked) animated movies about a fairytale world has one of the skimpiest you’ll ever see. This movie about fairies has some adult themes and violent scenes, and this fairy-in-training isn’t always on the good guy’s side. So if you’re looking for an edgy fairy, then you’ll love her look and character.
Crysta in ‘FernGully: The Last Rainforest’ – Crysta is a great fairy to want to emulate since she stars in one of the few animated movies about saving the environment. Her skimpy costume composed of red rags is just as sexy as that of Elinore, and like hers, it’s also one of the best Halloween costume ideas for brunettes.
The fairies in ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ – The fairies in this dark fairytale don’t make the best Halloween costumes ideas, but they’re still fun to look at. They are the fairies that are least like humans on this list, being more like the gigantic bugs that they transform from. Be warned, however; this is one of the saddest fairy movies you’ll ever see.
The fairies in ‘Fantasia’ – These seasonal fairies make great Halloween costume ideas; they transform from the reds and oranges of fall into the blues of winter to the tune of some amazing music. ‘Fantasia’ is one of my all-time favorite animated movies, and it’s a great way to discover the power of artistic animation and classical music.
The blue fairy in ‘Pinocchio’ – The blue fairy is one of the best fairy Halloween costume ideas for those that are a little more conservative. The blue fairy is beautiful in a long blue gown with blonde hair, and she’s also extremely kind, granting Pinocchio’s wish to become a real boy. This is one of the best classic Disney movies, and it’s still just as fun to watch today.
The fairies of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ – This is another of the greatest classic Disney movies that stars a fairy. In fact, this one stars more than one. Hopefully Miley Cyrus won’t have to deal with an evil fairy like Maleficent in her new movie; but it would be pretty nice to have some fairy friends that could magically change your dress color. When it comes to fairy Halloween costume ideas, Maleficent is a much darker choice than many others on this list, and she is wingless (but she does have a pretty amazing hat that looks like gigantic horns).
The Fairy Godmother in ‘Cinderella’ – There sure are a lot of great classic Disney movies featuring fairies! If you’re looking for sexy fairy Halloween costume ideas, you might want to skip this one. But Cinderella’s singing fairy godmother is so kind and cute, I can’t put her down for not looking like Tinkerbell.
The Fairy Godmother in ‘Shrek 2’ – This is another fairy godmother, but she’s more like a purple-haired witch than a friendly fairy. However, her fun purple hair, long blue dress, and spectacles make her one of the more unique fairy Halloween costume ideas; just think of the fairy version of Sarah Palin with a way bigger Bumpits, and you’ll get the look down pat.
So while Miley Cyrus’ new movie takes on a different side of fairy life (being a teenager in love), there are plenty of other great movies about fairies that can provide some fun or sexy Halloween costume ideas to help you feel a bit magical yourself.
