When it comes to Halloween costumes, it’s always more exciting to get dressed up as someone you love, whether it’s a character from a tv show, movie or book. See how to create a Halloween costume as the pink and girly filled Pinkalicious character as featured in the popular books by Victoria and Elizabeth Kann.

Truth be told Hailey was made familiar by the Pinkalicious character first from watching her on the PBS TV show, but was then excited to see that she was a book series! She’s at the age where she wants to choose her own outfits and often asks to wear a dress, and when it’s pink even better! One summer day a few weeks back, Brielle kept calling her Pinkalicious with the all pink (down to the underwear) outfit Hailey picked out for herself and I quickly realized it would be a great DIY Halloween costume for this year!
Pinkalicious Halloween Costume Supplies:
- Pink tutu dress
- Pink leggings
- Plastic tiara
- Spray Paint – gold
- Felt – yellow
- Gem Tac Adhesive
- Embroidery Thread – yellow
- Wood Dowel
- Acrylic Paint – pink
- Ribbon – pink
In the original Pinkalicious book cover, she is wearing a gold crown. We had this plastic one in our dress up collection so I gave it a quick spray paint coverage to turn it more gold.
After drying, I added some sparkly pink gems using Gem Tac.
This sparkly Pinkalicious crown is ready for Halloween!
The wand was made using two pieces of felt cut into a star shape. I sewed them together and put some stuffing inside, but left an opening at the bottom. A pink painted wood dowel and pink ribbon transformed these craft basics into the Pinkalicious wand she carries in the original book!
Lastly I copped out and grabbed this set of sparkly pink wings at Dollar Tree. Guys, I wasn’t going to be able to make this part for less than a dollar so I’m perfectly ok with this compromise. Plus, it happens to be her favorite part of the costume and I’m sure will be in heavy rotation after Halloween.
All this girls needs is a pink cupcake and she’d be a spitting image to the Pinkalicious book character from the book cover!

Sadly she might not be wearing this costume anywhere except our backyard or with her cousins but we still plan to make some fun with other Halloween activities that night!
Check out the Halloween costume her sister will be sporting this year, which is also a popular book character!
