How to Dress Like Peter Pan
Peter Pan’s has an auburn hair color with a fringe of bangs ending just over his eyes. He wears an emerald green pointed fabric cap with a bright red feather sticking out from the top.
To recreate this iconic look for your costume, you’ll need to either dye and style your own hair or purchase a wig.
For Peter Pan’s hat, you can purchase one from a costume website or Halloween shop, or sew your own using green fabric and matching thread. You can easily find large red feathers from any craft store or retail website. Use hot glue or thread to hold it down to the hat. When choosing the right feather, look for a stiff one that stands upright.
Peter has wide, bright eyes and elvin features on his face to accent his fairy-tale innocence. Use an eyebrow pencil, eyeliner and contouring kit to achieve a similar look, and check out video makeup tutorials if you need help mastering Peter’s style.
