When it comes to picking a costume for any occasion, have fun! Halloween is a terrific time to showcase your style and experiment with your look. Dressing up, styling clothing and dancewear pieces you love, and transforming through fashion are some of my favorite parts of this time of year. It’s all about channeling your creativity, and these looks are dancewear creations made for celebrating and dazzling on the dance floor.
The Powerpuff Girls
Gather your dance BFFs and bring the dance party! Girl power. Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles unite! This look is a fashionable (and danceable) twist on an iconic super trio.

To recreate the Powerpuff Girl’s looks, start with color. Pink, blue, and green are the key colors for these outfits. Beginning with dancewear in rainbow shades, my sisters and I layered vibrant velvet leotards with color-coordinated floral skirts and ballet tights. We accessorized with matching flower hair clips and shimmering lip gloss. This iconic pas de trois of superhero fashionistas makes for a fantastic group Halloween costume. Just add dance shoes!

Everyone’s favorite lady in polka dots, Minnie is a darling mouse with incredible style. For this costume, Minnie said it best, “Some days call for extra sparkle.” Creating her signature look is lots of fun, so put on your polka dots, and let’s dance!
To put this Minnie Mouse costume together, I started with the Royal Couture black velvet leotard and classical ballet tutu in black tulle. Once you find articles of dancewear to create a main starting point, layer your best polka-dot pieces of clothing. Then it’s all about the accessories. I added mouse ears (of course) and heart earrings. Don’t forget to make a statement with your shoes! Minnie wears heels, but I went with Swarovski jeweled red point shoes to match a sparkly red bow.

For makeup, you can create a Minnie look with classic rouge red lipstick, full lashes, and winged eyeliner. This goes perfectly with a slicked back hairstyle made for dancing all day long with Daisy and Mickey!

Just a basic, average girl, here to save the world. (With an outfit that is ON. POINTE.) Four seasons, and 87 episodes have firmly solidified Kim Possible as one of the coolest teen superheroes. This throwback to 2002 is very on-trend and the perfect fashion statement for Halloween.
To achieve Kim’s hop look, I started with the Royal Couture black velvet leotard paired with Kim’s iconic green cargo pants. This Kim Possible fit is a fierce look that can be styled for any dance class. Transform this costume for balled by adding a full-platter tutu. Style Kim for jazz, tap, or hip hop with her iconic green pants and the right dance shoes. For lyrical or contemporary, you can even pair this outfit with a green skirt. Don’t forget Kim’s classic side part hairstyle.
