Snow white makes a great fancy dress costume as the yellow, red and blue colours combined with the wig make it obvious it is the Snow White costume from the Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs film that featured the magic mirror and obviously the seven dwarfs.
This adult version of the Disney Snow White costume comes with a satin and velour dress with gold brocade trim, a stand up collar and hair ribbon. As far as I know to get that authentic Snow White hair style, you will have to also purchase a the Snow White wig which is usually sold separately.
It is interesting to note that in many versions of Snow White, other than the well known Grimm brothers and the Disney versions, the dwarfs in the story are actually thieves and the magic mirror is often not included at all. There is even one version of Snow White that comes from Albania where she lives with 40 dragons and not the dwarfs at all!
And perhaps because of this there are apart from the Snow White costumes shown many variations, to see them all check out these ones:
