Pocahontas is known for her long, flowing black hair. To achieve this look, let your hair fall naturally or use a long, straight black wig. She typically wears her hair down, but you can also tie it back with a simple band to mimic her style in certain scenes.

Key accessories for a Pocahontas costume include her distinctive blue necklace, a replica of the one given to her by her father in the movie. You can also add a simple armband or a woven belt to complete the look.

Makeup for a Pocahontas costume should be natural and understated. Focus on a warm, earthy tone for the face and a neutral lip color. A little bit of eyeliner can help to emphasize the eyes subtly.

Adding quotes or referencing scenes from "Pocahontas" can bring depth to your costume. Consider these memorable lines and moments: "You think I'm an ignorant savage, and you've been so many places; I guess it must be so.," Singing or referencing the song "Colors of the Wind.," "I'm Pocahontas, daughter of Chief Powhatan." and "No matter what happens, I'll always be with you, forever."

About Pocahontas

Pocahontas was the daughter of Chief Powhatan of the Powhatans, a Native American tribe. Pocahontas, a rebellious and free-spirited girl, would often go exploring on her own with her animal friends Meeko and Flit. Pocahontas was arranged to be married to the warrior Kocoum, despite the fact that she did not love him. After the arrival of English explorers, Pocahontas was forced to keep the peace between her tribe and the foreigners.

Pocahontas eventually fell in love with the captain of the English settlers, John Smith. Neither her tribe nor John Smith’s fellow Englishmen approved of their relationship, leading to more tension between the two groups. Fighting ensued between the Powhatan’s and the English, and Kocoum was killed. John Smith was held responsible and set to be executed, but Pocahontas intervened and saved his life. The natives and the English eventually came to accept each other and Pocahontas’ and John Smith’s relationship.
