Though the rules for each dress-up game on GirlsGoGames.com differ, they generally involve placing different pieces of clothing on a character, with some also allowing you to choose hairstyles and makeup options. Some games also feature different backdrops and the ability to save a picture of the final outfit.
Most dress-up games begin with choosing a base character, often a generic doll, a character from a popular movie or celebrity. The main gameplay consists of choosing different outfits and accessories for the character and viewing them in different scenes. One game on the site, "Modern Frozen Sisters," features the characters Anna and Elsa from the movie "Frozen" and allows you to choose from various modern clothing items and accoutrement, such as coffee cups and headphones, rather than the clothing that appears in the movie.
