You'll find no pixie dust in this Halloween costume, just lots of flash and dash. This version is store-bought, but something similar could be created at home. A tutu or sparkly gown is the main component, supplemented with a pair of fairy wings, inexpensive to buy but also fairly easy to make. Color-coordinating makeup, jewelry and gloves will heighten the effect.
