A Cinderella costume is one of the most popular princess style costumes to wear at parties. The Cinderella story has taken many forms since it was first created hundreds of years ago, the most famous version is that of a girl who is forced to work as a servant by her evil stepmother and tormented by her stepsisters. In the story the King holds a ball so that his son, the Prince can find a suitable wife. Cinderella attends the ball in a gown that is made by her animal friends, riding in a magical pumpkin carriage created by her fairy godmother. At the ball the Prince dances with Cinderella and falls in love with her, however she has to quickly leave before her carriage turns back into a pumpkin at the stroke of midnight. In the rush she accidentally leaves behind one of her glass slippers. Since the Prince did not get a chance to know her name, the slipper is used to search the land for the girl whose foot it fits so that the Prince can marry her. Cinderella's costume is usually blue with long gloves and a blue headband due to the way it was portrayed by Disney.
