Pocahontas wears a stunning garb based on real Native-American clothing. This clothing is made of rawhide and leather, which is animal skin, and fits in with the timeline of her story. Her style is very carefree and almost kind of wild.
She completely forgoes any shoes, instead preferring to roam around barefoot, as was done by Natives during that time.
Her dress is very simple, with just a few fringe details, and the only accessories she has is an armband and necklace. For the sake of the costume, tan flats are a good option for your feet so that you don’t have to walk barefoot.
Another cute item that would make the costume even better, is to have a stuffed raccoon, like Pocahontas’s friend & pet Meeko, that you could take around with you while in costume.
