All Saints Day Costume Ideas for Girls

All Saints Day costumes don't have to be complicated, and they can be fun and easy to put together! After your child decides what saint she'd like to dress up as, you should spend some time researching the saint together and looking up pictures online to get a feel for the costume you need. Here's a list of All Saints' Day costume ideas for girls to get you started:

Nuns and Sisters- This is a big category for girl saints! I have directions posted here for putting together a simple no-sew nun costume. There are so many great saints to choose from!

Royalty: Dress up like a queen or a princess saint! Put on a fancy dress, make yourself a crown, and be a royal saint for All Saints Day! You can find lots of ideas for crafting your own crown here. If you want a more "saintly" look rather than a Disney princess kind of a look, you can try putting a veil under your crown and/or adding a cape (depending on the saint). Here are some choices for queen and princess saint costumes:

Flower Crown- You don't have to dress up as a queen or a princess to have fun with a crown on All Saints Day. Find some ideas for making your own floral crown here.

  • St. Cecilia- She was crowned with roses and lilies by angels. If you dress up as St. Cecilia, be sure and carry an instrument!
  • St. Rose of Lima- She is often depicted with a crown made of roses.
  • St. Lucy- Also known as St. Lucia. She wore a green wreath on her head with candles all around it. This crown gets paired with a white dress and a red ribbon tied around the waist. Read more about putting together a St. Lucy costume here.
  • Mary- Our Lady is often crowned with flowers, and she's the queen of all the saints!

Doctor- St. Gianna Beretta Molla. She was a modern doctor. Where a white lab coat, and carry a baby doll (or a little baby sibling).

Soldier- St. Joan of Arc. Girl dressed in armor. Simple armor can be made from cardboard, duct tape, and aluminum foil. Armor can also be found at the Dollar Tree around Halloween time.

Maid- St. Zita. Wear a simple dress, an apron, and a handkerchief in your hair. Carry a broom or a duster. Can also carry bread or roses in your apron.

Dress up as Mary- Our Lady has so many titles, and just as many ways to dress up like her! The classic look would be to wear a dress with a blue veil. You can also try some of these:

  • Our Lady of Guadalupe- Wear a pink dress with a black ribbon tied around the waist. This is a symbol of pregnancy. Then you need a long blue veil with golden stars on it. You could paint them on with gold glitter glue, or use gold foil star stickers. This is a great costume to pair with San Juan Diego!
  • Our Lady of Fatima- Also known as Our Lady of the Rosary. Dress in a white gown with a white veil trimmed in gold with a crown placed on top. Carry a rosary.
  • Immaculate Heart of Mary- Dress in a red dress with a white veil and a blue sash or cape. Tape a picture of the Immaculate Heart on your chest. Or, find directions on tie dying an Immaculate Heart shirt.
  • Our Lady of Lourdes- Also known as Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. Wear a white dress or robe, and a white veil. Tie a blue ribbon or sash around your waist, and carry a rosary. This would be a great costume to pair with St. Bernadette!

Angel- Dressing up like an angel for All Saints Day can be great fun! You'll need a white dress, a halo, some wings, and possibly a harp. You can find great directions for making your own angel costume here. You can cut wings out of cardboard and then either spray paint them, glue feathers on them, or cover them in foil. A harp can be easily cut from cardboard, then use pipe cleaners for the strings. I also thought these angel wings made from paper plates were pretty clever. 

Bonnets- You can either sew a bonnet with this free pattern, or you can make bonnets out of paper. Here are some saints that wore bonnets:

Peasant- Dress in simple dresses, plaid or different patterns. Tie a rag or veil on your head and add a shawl. Here are some ideas for peasant saints to dress up as:

Native American- Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha. Dress as a Native American girl and carry a cross made from 2 sticks tied together.

Carry Props- For many girl saint costumes, all you need is a dress, a veil, and the right props. Here are some ideas to get you going:
