Dress-up games are games that involve the wearing of costumes in order to impersonate someone else, usually a fairy tale character or superhero. Makeup games are those that involve the use of cosmetics to alter appearance. In most cases, dress-up and makeup games go hand in hand.
Makeup and dress-up games are commonly played by young children who try to impersonate their favorite characters from storybooks. In some cases, the games may involve dressing up and applying makeup on dolls in order to alter their appearance. There are also virtual games that allow children to dress up their favorite characters.
Some of the most commonly impersonated fairy tale characters for girls include "Cinderella," "Goldilocks" and "Rapunzel." Boys, on the other hand, like to impersonate "Peter Pan" and "Aladdin." Today, there are quite a lot of characters that can be impersonated during these games. They include superheroes from comic book movies, such as "Spider-Man" and "Superman."
These games are believed to be quite helpful, since they help young children develop social skills as they interact with one another during the games. The games also help bring out the creativity of each child, since they may be required to come up with their own costume designs with a little help from parents or teachers.
