prima ballerina costume


I will admit that I’m not too keen for halloween. I like the idea of emancipating from myself and embracing the personality and characteristics of something you always wanted to do or be. For me, I always wanted to properly pursue my dancing career and become a prima ballerina.

The easiest costume to put together for any c&é girl. One that is simple and chic and absolutely glamorous. And so a bit of inspiration and an opportunity to shop the inter-webs for the perfect pieces to perfect your prima ballerina look too!


Though the juxtaposition of pink tulle and a simple swipe of mascara and lightest shade of pink against a black leotard and a dramatic make-up ensemble is one that I can never choose between.

  • Love this idea! Very sophisticated way of dressing up and doing a ballerina as well instead of going tacky tutu!

    • Haha, probably not ideal for any of the parties I’m going to… plus gives me a reason to dress up like that when it’s not halloween! x
