Review: Native American Indian Maiden Costume

Costume Super Center has a large variety of Native American costumes on their online store. This review is for their Native American Indian Maiden Costume currently priced at $38.24. The costume comes with a dress, headband with feather and boot cuffs. The dress is available in sizes small, medium and large and is made of polyester. It can be hand washed and air dried. The costume is made by the Franco Costume Couture company. A listing of the item for purchase can be found HERE.

I selected this dress for the Peter Pan character Tiger Lily, who is a Native American Princess from Neverland. One of the fun things about factory costumes is that you can be creative and put your own spin on things. To add a touch of Neverland magic, I decided to sew my Tinker Bell doll onto the right shoulder of the dress. I also decided to do war paint for a dramatic look. Fun note: the blue makeup I used was in fact liquid eye liner and eye shadow not face paint.

After sewing Tinker Bell in and completing a warrior paint makeup test during the holiday season, it was finally time to shoot. I ordered my dress in a size small. It fits very comfortably and is not too tight or too baggy. The dress also matches the colors as seen in the item listing. I skipped a wig and decided to use my natural hair since it is getting longer. I flat ironed it and kept the feather headband in place with bobby pins. I also added a sea shell necklace that was a gift from my father. The outfit does not come with boots therefore I used a pair of gray Uggs. Photographs were taken by Green House Photography.

I was very pleased with how the look came together and the beautiful dress, headband and boot cuffs from Costume Super Center. You can put your own spin on this outfit or any other Native American costumes available on Costume Super Center and create a unique look for Pocahontas, Sacajawea and many other Native American characters (or create an original concept). Their Native American Indian Maiden Costume gets two thumbs up from me.

  1. Thanks for the review. I usually cosplay anime characters because that is the trend here in Philippines (even most Cosplay Costume Tips and Suggestions are aimed at such) This year, I'll be trying Wonder Woman :D
