Browse through the costumes and cosplay guides for the popular Lost Boys leader, Peter Pan, and his friends. First created in 1902 by J.M.

With our step-by-step instructional guides, you can be ready to travel to Neverland with Peter Pan and his sidekicks. With cosplay guides for characters like Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, and Captain Hook, you can fly back in time and dress like you just stepped off the Jolly Roger.
Since Tinker Bell’s creation in 1904, she has become a “symbol of the magic of Disney” with her ability to spread pixie dust and create magic for those that wish to fly. Known as being Peter Pan’s fairy companion, she is so tiny that she only has room for one emotion at a time. This attitude causes Tinker Bell to feel emotions strongly and is often seen to be jealous when she doesn’t get enough attention. In the original story of Peter Pan, Tinker Bell vies for Peter Pan’s attention and eventually tricks the Lost Boys into shooting Wendy. While Tinker Bell’s jealousy can sometimes be harmful, she is ultimately remade into a fairy that everyone has grown to love and adore.
Known for having a hook for a hand, Captain Hook is Peter Pan’s archnemesis. After getting his hand cut off by Peter Pan and fed to a crocodile, Captain Hook has a hatred for Peter that spans farther than merely revenge. While Peter Pan can live freely without worrying about time and age, Captain Hook is chased continuously and haunted by time which causes further resentment towards Peter Pan. Despite being sinister towards his crew members on board the Jolly Roger, Captain Hook speaks well and is polite, which gives him some redeeming qualities. He also tends to talk down to himself and often feels isolated from his crew. This trait makes Captain Hook more relatable and one of the few likable villains to have ever existed.
Originally appearing in a novel written by J.M. Barrie in 1902, Peter Pan has since become an iconic character and has become a part of the Disney animation. Walt Disney’s version of Peter Pan premiered in 1953. Everyone’s favorite fairy, Tinker Bell, has since become one of Disney’s iconic characters that still appears in more recent movies. Later in 1991, the story of Peter Pan was again remade by director Steven Spielberg. His film entitled “Hook,” starred Robin Williams as Peter Pan and Julia Roberts as Tinker Bell.
Since 1991 there have been several more remakes, all telling their version of Peter Pan’s story. However, the main constant with each remake is Peter Pan’s story of being a youthful boy, a boy that never grows up. Peter has never-ending adventures with his friends, The Lost Boys. While each story has its twists and turns, Peter Pan allows audiences to escape to Neverland and wish they could stay young forever.
