Disney Descendants 2 has become a very successful movie among children and teenagers alike, focusing on the children of popular Disney villains such as Maleficent, Jafar, Ursula, and more.
It’s become one of the most popular movies among young audiences for mid-2017, so naturally there will be many kids dressing up as their favorite characters for Halloween. There are plenty of characters to pick from that will suit both boys and girls of all ages, from Mal, daughter of Maleficent, to Carlos, son of Cruella de Vil.
Each character is very uniquely dressed, so it should be easy for your child’s friends to tell which character they are. The most popular character will likely be Mal, given that she’s the protagonist of the movie.
Mal has a few key features that you’ll want to make sure you include whether you’re buying a premade costume or making one yourself. First, you can’t miss her bright purple hair.
You can use temporary spray-on hair dye if your child has the right hair length, or get a wig that has the right color and length. Other key parts of her outfit include her spiky purple jacket, leggings, and fingerless glove on her right hand.
If you really want to complete the look, you can get colored contacts and makeup to match the character almost exactly. Another popular character is Evie, Mal’s friend and daughter of the Evil Queen from Snow White.
Evie’s outfit consists mostly of blue colored items. First, her hair is a deep blue color, coming down just below her shoulders. She has a braid of hair running right above her forehead, with a flower hair attachment on it.
She wears two bright red, fingerless gloves with rings on them. She wears a blue jacket with studs and a red heart on it, along with matching motorcyclist pants. She also wears black heels, solidifying that biker look.
Finally, for the boys, they might want to dress up as Jay, son of Jafar. Jay wears a red beanie over his long, wavy hair. Most boys have shorter hair, so a wig is the best option for you to complete the look.
Jay also wears black fingerless gloves, along with some bracelets. The most prominent part of his outfit is his sleeveless vest, which is red and blue. He wears normal denim jeans along with combat boots for shoes. You can add gold accents to the vest and red accents to the jeans for the most accurate look.
There are many other characters in the Disney Descendants 2 movie, and your child can go it alone or dress up as a group of Descendants friends and foes if they want to all dress in a theme.
