Blue Costume Ideas
The obvious character choice for a blue costume is a Smurf since their bodies are entirely blue. The best way to look like a Smurf is to use a lot of blue body paint to completely cover the exposed skin on your face, upper body, arms and legs. Smurfettes can wear a short white dress and blue pantyhose, while men can wear white trousers and go shirtless or wear a blue t-shirt. You will then just need white shoes, white gloves and a curly white Smurf hat. For a Papa Smurf costume you will need a red colored hat, trousers and shoes instead of white ones.
Cinderella’s costume is a beautiful light blue ball gown with white opera gloves and a blue hair band. For Cinderella’s shoes you can wear sliver colored strappy high heels, or preferably transparent plastic slippers.
Superman wears a blue leotard with a red cape and red underwear on the outside - in the original comics and movies. The more modern Superman costume has the underwear on the inside, making it just a completely blue body suit with red boots and his famous red cape.
Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz wears a simple blue dress over a white blouse, she also wears her famous red shoes which she clicks together when she wants to return home from Oz. For a Dorothy costume you should wear your hair in pigtails with a cute blue bow in it.
Alice from the story “Alice's Adventures in Wonderland” also wears a simple light blue dress like Dorothy. However, instead of a white blouse she wears a white apron over the front of the dress. Alice wears white socks (or stockings) and her hair is blonde with a black hair band that has a bow on the top.

The ultimate blue costumes may well be those of the giant blue aliens called the Na'vi from the movie Avatar. These costumes are only suitable for the fit, since you will need to wear only blue body paint and a loin cloth.

You will also need to have long braided dark hair, and preferably be over 7 foot tall!
