1. Queen Esther: One of the central figures of the Purim story, Queen Esther, makes an excellent costume choice for little girls. Dressing up as Queen Esther allows them to embody the bravery and strength of this legendary heroine. A regal gown, adorned with jewels and a crown, completes the look. We suggest our Deluxe Beauty and the Beast Inspired Ball Gown or Sparkle Costume Dress for a royal golden appearance that reminders her of another noble character.

2. Mordecai: For a unique twist on traditional Purim costumes, consider dressing your daughter as Mordecai, Queen Esther's wise and courageous cousin. A simple tunic paired with a colorful robe and a beard made of cotton balls creates a convincing Mordecai costume. But for a bit more flare, try one of our Hocus Pocus Inspired Costume Dresses to give the same style.

3. Biblical Characters: Purim provides an excellent opportunity to explore various biblical characters. Little girls can choose to dress up as other heroes and heroines from Jewish history, such as Ruth, Deborah, or Miriam. These costumes can be as simple or elaborate as you like, depending on your child's preferences and creativity. Our Encanto Inspired Mirabel Tutu Costume Dress is a bright embroidered piece perfect to represent those heroines. Or if she would prefer to go "super" with her hero idea, our Amazing Spider-Girl Inspired Tutu Costume Dress will fit the bill.

4. Animals and Fantasy Creatures: Let your daughter's imagination soar with whimsical costume ideas inspired by animals and fantasy creatures. From unicorns and fairies to butterflies and ladybugs, the possibilities are endless. Encourage her to embrace her favorite animal or mythical creature and incorporate it into her Purim costume. Give our Enchanted Peacock Fairy Tutu Costume Dress or Flower Sequined Tinkerbell Inspired Costume a chance to make her festivities magical.

5. DIY Creations: Get crafty and involve your little one in creating her Purim costume from scratch. Whether it's sewing a custom gown, crafting accessories, or designing unique props, DIY costumes add a personal touch to the celebration. Not only does this foster creativity, but it also creates lasting memories for both parent and child. And if you need something in a pinch, check out the rest of our Purim Costume Collection to help her shine during this traditional celebration.
