Pros:Cute costume. identifiable character. pretty.
not constructed for long term. too short for my taste
The Bottom Line: If you've got the right figure for this one and can carry off the pixie look, this is a fun costume
I work in a shop that is dedicated half to costumes and novelties and half to magic. This time of year, the costumes prevail. Among the most popular styles of women's costumes are those skimpy, sexy outfits. This Tinkerbell costume falls into that category, but it does it in a really cute way.

The Tinkerbell costume is made out of the same horrible stretchy synthetic fabric that seems to be the norm for Halloween costumes today. Further the construction is just sufficient to keep it together. The material is lightweight and designed to hold up for just a couple of wearings. This is not a costume you'll be wearing again and again, year after year.
It will work very well for a night or two, but it isn't one you'll be keeping. The material is in a light green and decorated with glued on dark-green sequins. Again, this is a sign that this costume is not meant to be kept for long term. I personally find the dress too short to be worn alone. The designers refer to this length as a "mini". The costume comes in "standard adult size" which means that it is meant to be worn by folks from size 4 to size 12. Except on those folks who are size 4 and 5'2" or less, this is more long shirt than mini dress. I definitely recommend adding something below the hem line. I've seen cute results with green bike shorts or leggings. This dress does at least adhere to that basic tenet of fashion that if you're showing lots of skin one place, you cover it up in others. While this shows the legs, the cleavage and midsection are covered. Because the material this is made of tends to cling a bit, I recommend wearing a bodyshaper with this costume if you have any curves you want smoothed out.
My favorite part of this costume are is the wings. The wings slip on comfortably. Some of the wings sold with costumes these days are too long. They are meant to look like butterfly wings and go far down the back, if not to the knees. These are a good length. They go about half way down the back. They still give the impression of being a fairy without interfering with mobility. The wings are not attached to the costume, so if you want to sit or take them off all together, that is possible. If you want something to carry to complete the costume, I would recommend a tiara or a fairy wand.
One of the things I really like about this costume is that it does not require a mask. It does lend itself to some fanciful make-up. If you need to wear a mask, I would probably go with a simply feathered eye mask or I would decorate a domino mask. Remember whatever you do on or around your face that glitter is made of plastic or metal pieces that can scratch the eyes. Use it below the eyes only. Shimmery make up can be used both above and below.
In the end, if you're looking for a one time costume for a party, this is very cute and can be easily dressed up. If you want to dress up and take the kids out trick-or-treating, this is probably not a good option as you would freeze your pixie-dust off.
