As part of the Care.com Halloween costume series, learn how to turn your little princess into Rapunzel.

Have your little princess really let her hair down this Halloween with a Disney's Tangled-inspired "Rapunzel" costume.


  • Light purple party dress
  • Store bought long blonde wig
  • Stuffed plush chameleon (can use frog if easier to find)
  • Purple sandals or sneakers
  • White tights
  • Safety pins.

Step 1: Attach Chameleon/frog to the right shoulder of the dress using safety pins.

Step 2: Braid the wig and tuck flowers into the braid for a more whimsical look. Tie child's hair into a low bun so that her hair is out of the way and the wig is able to rest easily on her head.

Step 3: Dress child in tights, dress, wig and shoes. Now she is ready to really let her hair down!
