5 Ways to Improve Dress Up Games

Everyone loves to play dress up games, but you can play them even more enjoyably if you follow these simple suggestions.

1. Play alone. If you haven’t ever played dress up games alone, you’re missing a valuable chance to learn about yourself and your wardrobe. Get in your closet and start playing with your clothing.

2. Bring over a friend. Once you know what you think looks great and feels good, bring over a friend and you’ll be able to ask her opinion on everything you try on including what sorts of things she thinks you’ll still need.

3. Do your hair. It doesn’t matter how great an outfit is if you refuse to do something new and fun to your hair. Pull it up, let it down, play around and enjoy the whole process. It is fun to get a new look, of course.

4. Take pictures. It might seem silly at the time, but take as many pictures as you can while you are playing dress up games. Then you have evidence of how great you looked in a particular outfit – and evidence of how awful you looked in others.

5. Play regularly. It’s important to play the dress up games frequently to keep your closet in tip-top shape and to stay on top of your wardrobe.

Experiment with Dress Up Games

Like dress up games, but don’t really spend very much time playing them? Dress up games are a great way to stretch your imagination and practice creativity, but you don’t always have the time to play for hours on end creating new looks. That’s why you need to get creative.

Fantasy Dress Up Games
If you haven’t already, try a series of fantasy dress up games. Being able to design your own witches, fairies, pixies and mermaids is more fun than you can imagine. The creativity involved is greater than what you normally get to use when dressing dolls of what kind or another.

Goth and Emo Dress Up Games
Another style that you might have a great time playing are darker characters. If you’re usually light and peppy, having the chance to play with goth and emo characters can be darkly refreshing. Don’t be scared off by the dark colors and your lack of experience with this sort of character. It’s all in fun, and you might start to think about mixing a few darker elements in your own wardrobe as well.

Losing Weight and Dress Up Games

Dress up games are fun for just about everyone, but when someone is having a weight problem, dress up games lose much of their appeal. It’s hard to feel funky and pretty in something that doesn’t fit correctly or looks ill fitting due to some extra weight. Losing weight for dress up games isn’t at all a requirement, however.

If you picture yourself at a certain size and want to get back to that size for your own dress up games and daily wardrobe, you can do so by adjusting your diet and exercise routines. Move more and eat less. Calories that are stored in the body turn to fat, so really you need to eat only as many as you will actually use. If you don’t use calories you consume, you store them as fat.

So moving more will help to burn off those extra calories and eating less of the bad stuff and more of the good stuff will help you to consume fewer calories overall without seeing a reduction in energy.

Old Fashioned Dress Up Games

If you like things from the past, you’ll love to play old fashioned dress up games. There are a few opportunities you have to play these sorts of games.

Antique Photos
The first opportunity is to take antique pictures. The pictures come out in sepia, or brown tones, and the subject of the photo (you) dress in clothing from a certain time period. Girls might don a bonnet and long dress and boys get to wear gun belts and top hats – although not together.

Costume Shops
Costume shops have the best old fashioned clothing that is suitable for parties and such. You can find ball gowns, flapper dresses and so many other treasures. You can try on some of the costumes in the store, but you’ll probably have to pay dearly to rent one to actually use for your event.

Thrift Shops and Estate Sales
Thrift stores and the occasional estate sale have a nice collection of gowns and other vintage clothing that is authentically from time gone by. In basement shops of major cities, you can find some true treasures. Likewise, if you visit estate sales, you might be lucky enough to find pieces of clothing or accessories that you can give new life to.

Dress Up Games for Everyone

Dress up games are fun for everyone. Normally, you think only of girls playing dress up games, but this is certainly not the case. Girls might be the ones playing princess, but boys are playing their own version of dress up games as they pretend to be superheroes or fireman. Dress up games are perfectly suited for everyone regardless of gender and age.

Capes, masks and superhero costumes are easy to come by for boys and when you don your outfit, you are transformed into someone else entirely. Just as the little girl becomes a princess or doctor, the boy might become a cowboy or a cop. The imagination involved in either game is excellent for the child, but dress up games certainly don’t stop when a child grows up.

Older boys and girls still enjoy dress up games. They like to get dressed up for formal events and sometimes getting dressed up with your friends in silly costumes for Halloween parties and such are the highlight of the month. Groups of friends have been known to show up at school dressed in any number of crazy outfits collected from Goodwill or other thrift shops.

Dress Up Games Bring Us Together

Do you love dress up games? So do people all over the world. Dress up games are just one of the many ways that the world is getting smaller and the internet is helping to bring us all together.

Dress Up Games are Universal
There are dress up games that are most popular in the United States and there are plenty that are famous elsewhere. In many cases the games overlap and you could very well be on a community discussing your latest dress up game creation with girls from all over the world.

It’s far more common for us to speak with others in foreign countries than it is for our parents. Our age is called the digital age, and with so many games and other activities helping to connect girls from every country and culture around the world, it is only a matter of time before the world is completely united and we are able to see each other as we are – not based on what we look or sound like.
