Frazzled negligent mummy doing this the wrong way round. Dress has some gold on the bodice and could potentially cut off wings. Open to making other alternations/adding bits as long as I can amazon prime them before World Book Day on Thursday.

DD is 3 so might to get book today/tomorrow so she has at least read it and knows who she is supposed to be.

Any suggestions welcome!

The fairy godmother in Cinderella
One of the good fairies in Sleeping Beauty

Angel Gabriel from The Bible!

Look at the Flower Fairies Books to see which one is white or gold

Titania in a Midsummer Night's Dream (Your 3 year old is clearly G and T)

Good witch from Wizard of Oz? Just ignore the wings, don't chop them off.

Lucked · 27/02/2017 13:52

I was going to say Tatiana too with a <a class="break-all" href="//www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B01M0XWN3G/ref=mp_s_a_1_2_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1488203491&sr=8-2&keywords=floral%20head%20garland&tag=mumsnet&ascsubtag=mnforum-21" rel="nofollow noindex" target="_blank">floral garland

Could it become a Rapunzel costume without wings?

finova · 27/02/2017 13:54

Ladybird Rapunzel books have a white dress. Plait her hair.

AdaColeman · 27/02/2017 13:55

Tinkerbell from Peter Pan

minipie · 27/02/2017 14:13

Yes fairy godmother in Cinderella. There are lots of toddler friendly versions of Cinderella around.

honeysucklejasmine · 27/02/2017 14:18

Also going to suggest "that's not my angel"

AngelsWithSilverWings · 27/02/2017 14:25

Silky the Fairy from The Faraway Tree?

GrommitsEarsHurt · 27/02/2017 14:31

Definitely good witch Glinda from the Wizard of Oz, or that's not my fairy.

KanyeWesticle · 27/02/2017 14:34

Eleanor the snow white fairy, from the rainbow fairy books.

ScattyMummy01 · 27/02/2017 16:11

Thank you all! I will attempt to coerce her into being fairy godmother from Cinderella as she already knows the story. Maybe she could be Cinderella if I cut off the wings and buy a glass/clear plastic slipper??

She is very tomboyish though so this might not go down well at all... Any dressing up in the past has been dinosaurs/tigers etc and this dress was a Christmas present which has not seen the light of day since. I just do not have time to sort out anything and planning to put DS in her old dinosaur outfit… Zog for WBD purposes?

The princess in zog wears a white and gold dress at one point doesn't she?

ScattyMummy01 · 27/02/2017 16:14

Actually I feel terrible now – trying to force her into a girly outfit when she is clearly not interested!

OP posts:
ScattyMummy01 · 27/02/2017 16:14

Oh yes she loves Zog! And she is a doctor - she's very into playing doctor these days

OP posts:
ScattyMummy01 · 27/02/2017 16:16

They can go as a double act - Zog and doctor/princess... fingers crossed! I can still see it being a battle over who is Zog!

If she doesn't like it don't force it... get a book she likes, use Prime to get an accessory. Helps if it's a toy. E.g. Harry (normal clothes) and bucketful of dinosaur.

Myfanwyprice · 27/02/2017 16:18

I love it when my two go in coordinating dressing up outfits because I'm very sad

ParadiseCity · 27/02/2017 16:18

Or just go to Sainsburys and buy a doctor's outfit.

minipie · 27/02/2017 16:56

If she wants to be a doctor then could turn an old adult white shirt into a doctor coat with the application of a cross in red pen.

Need to think of a doctor book though!

finova · 28/02/2017 03:56

Magic porridge pot? Wear anything and buy a cauldron?

NightWanderer · 28/02/2017 04:14

What books does she like? I'm sure people can suggest an easy-to-make costume for you.
