Of course they're cute, beautiful too!


Yes, fairies are really cute. They have those gorgeous butterfly wings, they fly, they are pretty, they wear flowers in their hair, and they're petite. What's not to love!

What little girl (or bigger one) hasn't wanted a fairy costume at least once in their life? So here's a selection of the cutest ones.

Every girl knows that Ariel, the Little Mermaid, is cute. But there were mermaids before Ariel, and many of them are pretty cute too.

Of course a mermaid costume is cute - there's that tail for one thing! But be careful with the tail, mermaid tails have been known to trip up their wearers.

What little girl doesn't want to be the Little Mermaid! And this costume is very cute.

Costume includes Dress and Headband - Seaweed Boa sold separately.

I love unicorns, they are really one of my favorite mythical creatures.

Unicorns are special creatures - gorgeous white horses with that single spiral horn. They are reputed to be good and virtuous, healing the innocent with their horn (although evil-doers want to steer clear of it!), and representing purity.

And what could be cuter than a unicorn foal!

Unicorn costumes!

This brightly colored unicorn costume for little kids is just adorable!

The cuddly white jumpsuit has a rainbow-striped belly patch, tail, and furry unicorn ears atop the hood. And on the hood is the magical unicorn horn, in sparkling colors. There are also fun athletic-inspired cuffs in matching rainbow stripes.  

Cuter and Cuter!

How perfect is this for a cute infant costume!

This costume is a bodysuit with skid-resistant feet, and a hood that has ears and a golden horn.


There are many kinds of elves - some are rather mysterious like those in The Lord of the Rings, and there are the small elves, like these ones, who just seem to want to have fun.

There are also Christmas elves who help Santa. Then there's Buddy, who thought he was an elf!

Elf Costumes

Pretty good looking LOTR elf!

This costume includes cloak, tunic, belt and boot tops. Costume bow and arrow, brooch and wig offered separately.


Lady Christmas Elf?


She's rather cute (quite modest too!)

This costume includes tunic, belt, shoe covers, tights, and hat.



Gnomes are a strange bunch! There are the little guys with beards that live underground (kind of like dwarves).

And then there are garden gnomes - I'm not usually such a fan of them, but some are really delightful, and they do tend to be cuter than the other kind!

Gnome Costumes


Garden gnomes for little kids - very cute!

This costume includes shirt, pants, hat, and beard.

Comes in several sizes.

This one's for toddler girls

Also super cute!

This costume Includes dress, matching hat, and booties.

Unfortunately only comes in small sizes.

Travelocity Roaming Gnome!

Garden gnomes and roaming gnomes - they're all cute!

This Travelocity Roaming Gnome costume includes tunic, belt, and oversized gnome hat with an attached character mask.

Wear your own pants and shoes.

 know I'm probably prejudiced because I'm a dragon lover, but I've always thought dragons are more cute than ugly (ugly is reserved for trolls, usually!).

And for sure, little dragons are very cute. Who can argue that this little purple "Valentine Dragon" isn't the cutest?

Baby dragon costumes!

It's a purple baby dragon - how cute is that!

Jumpsuit has hook & loop fastener at center back and foam-backed wings attach to back of suit.

Another cute dragon costume.

This jumpsuit is made of light plush and has gloves and feet.

The whole costume is screen printed.


Well, that's unexpected!

Have to admit I always thought of trolls as big, ugly (yes, trolls are usually ugly!), dangerous, and often stupid. But not cute and happy like these guys!

Of course, now that I think of it, there are also those cute troll dolls with standing up colored hair. Now those are cute!

See, isn't that cute?

This costume includes dress, wig, and black shoe covers.

Troll Doll


Here's an example of the cute troll dolls, with the wild hair. This one's a musician (that's why I like him!) - see he's got a trumpet. Of course there are many, many other kinds available.

This Lucky Troll doll by Russ Berrie has a trumpet and is approximately 6 inches tall.

Oh indeed, some of them are so cute they're perfect for young children!

These are less scary than most, so young children may well accept them.
