Fairytale characters have always been one of the most common inspirations when it comes to costumes. And it’s not hard to see why.

Most women are fond of stories about princesses and damsels in distress when they were younger. Some might not have outgrown such fondness, which explains why they want to channel their favorite characters through fancy clothes inspired by them, like this Little Red Riding Hood costume

What makes this costume unique though is that it has a flirty style with its plunging neckline and shorter hemline. Pair it with black tights or fishnet stockings and black pumps for a remarkable look.


2. Funny Skeleton
