The original Pocahontas was born in 1596 and was also known as Matoaka and Amonute. A Pocahontas fancy dress costume is ideal for a 90s theme (representing the character in the 1995 Disney film) or a general Native American theme.
Given that this isn’t a hugely popular theme, it has the benefit of being a unique choice for a costume party, ensuring nobody will copy your idea, and it is particularly suited to the summer months.
Best Women’s Pocahontas Costume
My top choice for ladies is being sold by SoWest Fancy Dress on Amazon. Not only does it look authentic, but the price of £13.99 is the lowest I’ve seen on the web, too. The outfit comes in four sizes from 6 to 14.
There is no wig included, but none of the costumes I’ve seen include one, and compared to other suppliers this is excellent value.
Best Girl’s Pocahontas Costume
My top choice for girls is actually the official Disney costume which is the best rated by customers and also a low price at £14.10. It looks very pretty with gold frills and flower and gold glitter waist detailing.
It’s available in three sizes for ages 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8.

Best Pocahontas Wig
Unless you are fortunate enough to have long and thick black hair, then for a more complete look then you’ll need a wig.
I have chosen this high quality, natural feel long black hair wig by Fleurapance, which is also adjustable for different size head. The price is very reasonable, too.
Of course, cheaper wigs are available, but chances are you’ll end up with a wig that is unwearable. I never recommend buying a cheap wig.
