Most girls dream of becoming a Disney princess at some point in their lives, and I’m certainly no different! Rapunzel from Tangled is my favorite, because she owns a chameleon like I do! Naturally, everyone at my school said I HAD to wear a Rapunzel Tangled costume for Halloween and have my chameleon could star as Pascal. So I did! Here’s how I got the look.

The 5 key items you’ll need to recreate my Rapunzel Tangled costume are: a pink and purple dress, a blonde wig with a long braid, a stuffed chameleon, flowers, and exaggerated freckles. A frying pan is also an option!

Pick a Purple Dress
I picked a store-bought costume from Kohls. Even though I was 17 in these pictures, I’m so small that I can still fit into children’s costumes — which are really inexpensive. (I hate spending money on costumes that I only wear once, don’t you?!) If you don’t want to spend much, I suggest purchasing a long purple dress from a thrift shop then adding pink ribbon to the front to mimic Rapunzel’s look.
Add a Long, Blond Wig
Rapunzel wouldn't be Rapunzel without her long blonde locks. If you have long blonde hair or own extensions, you could do a side braid similar to the one I did here. If not, you'll need to buy a wig or create one out of yarn. Here's an easy yarn hair tutorial from The Everyday Mom Life that would work! If you’d rather buy, here is a really long option from Amazon, and here’s a great shorter option option.
Decorate with Flowers
Since my name is Daisy, I added daisies to enhance my braid. I picked them up from the craft store, and I snagged the smaller purple flowers from my mom's scrapbook collection. Use a hot glue gun to attach the flowers to bobby pins so they'll stay in the wig all night.
Draw Faux Freckles
I added exaggerated freckles because I wanted a cutesy, costume-y look for Halloween. If you've never added freckles before, check out my recent faux freckles tutorial. They're very easy to do!
It's easy to add freckles using brow or eyeliner pencils!
Add a Cute Chameleon!
Let’s face it, Pascal is the real star of the movie…and the costume! You can pick up adorable stuffed Pascal options from Amazon and either pin one to your shoulder or attach it using velcro or a hot glue gun.

(Photo sources below) If I ever get married and have a baby, I'm going to force my family into a Flynn Rider/Rapunzel/Pascal combo. Seriously…it's the cutest costume idea ever!
For the finishing touch, you can add the frying pan that Rapunzel used on Flynn. 🙂 You may only want to use it for pictures, because it might be a pain to carry around a heavy frying pan plus candy all night.
