A toy soldier costume is the perfect Christmas outfit for men, women, and kids. Toy soldiers are a classic Christmas toy and are a huge part of many holiday tales. A typical nutcracker outfit features a tall military hat, double breasted jacket, and toy gun props. In The Nutcracker ballet, the toy soldiers are some of the dancers that side with the nutcracker prince. They fight rats and defend the ballerinas. As such, toy soldier uniforms make a wonderful choice for dance performances, pageants, plays, parades, and theme parties. Get together a group to dress in matching soldier ensembles for an imposing troupe of characters.
Accessories are the best (and most fun) part of a toy soldier outfit. Add props like toy muskets, white gloves, and hats inspired by England's royal guard. Makeup and face paint can also add some detail to your look. Create bright cheeks with round circles of blush or red face paint. The circular application creates a doll-like feel. You can create more doll details by adding fake eyelashes or applying lipstick for a painted look.
