PARTY GIRL – Costume Information
Information is Subject to Change
Performance Costume: All costume pieces are numbered. Costume numbers are assigned at your costume fitting. You will wear the same costume for all of your performances. Your pantaloons are put on before makeup. The Party Girl that does the opening crossing will wear a cape and hat.
Performance Hairstyle: The Party Princess wears ringlets – she is the only one. All other Party Girls should choose a hairstyle from the photos below, and wear it to your costume fitting. Your performance hairstyle must be approved by Ballet West Wig Master at the costume fitting.

Performance Makeup: All performance makeup must be applied prior to dancers entering the theater for dress rehearsals and performances. Parents will be responsible for doing their own dancer’s makeup. Below is the list of makeup required for Ballet West Nutcracker. Dancers are allowed to use comparable brands, but the color must be the same. Please reference the above photos for makeup.
- Ben Nye: Eye Shadow Taupe (ES-34)
- Ben Nye: Victorian Rose Cheek (DR-61)
- Black or Brown Eye Liner
- Black or Brown Brow Pencil depending on hair color
Dancers will wear a face mask for all performances, and therefore will not need to wear lipstick.
Performance Shoes: Pink canvas ballet shoes with pink elastic are required. Your shoes must be “performance ready”. That means the elastics and ribbons are neatly sewn on and that your shoes are clean. Remember two pairs of shoes are required in your dance bag for just this reason. One pair can be an old pair.
Please Note: The wardrobe department does not repair shoes.
Performance Tights and Leotard: Ballet West prefers, Bodywrappers Tights #C45 (girls) or #A45 (ladies) in Theatrical Pink. A pastel tone short sleeve style leotard is required. Party Girl # 3B will need a leotard with a wide neck opening.
