Snow White/Mary Margaret Blanchard

Third in a series.
Snow White, the fairest of them all, has had various costumes. Whether dressed like royalty, or for a stroll on Main Street, she has class and style.
Back in the Enchanted Forest, Snow was almost always on the run. She usually wore her "Bandit" or "Adventure" outfits, as costume designer Eduardo Castro affectionately calls them. Snow was most often seen in her tan bandit costume with matching boots, but after she met Prince Charming she wore her fancier, white outfit more. Thankfully, these costumes are stylish but easy enough to move in so that Snow could make her way around without getting caught by the Queen's guards or other enemies.
Snow White is well known for wearing lots of white. We see her during flashbacks in her wedding attire, or the simple white dress she wore when decorating Emma's nursery. Even while attending Prince Eric's ball, she slipped on a cream-colored, white base top. The color white represents purity, sincerity, and goodness which is how Snow is often described. The color lives up to her name.
As Mary Margaret, Snow is often seen sporting a skirt or dress. She also wears many coats and cardigans. Her clothes are conservative, yet very feminine. They continue to give her the sweet, loving image of Snow White. These outfits are meant to show us how differently she acted and dressed when in her cursed persona.
Currently in Camelot, Snow is back to wearing more royal-based costumes. She is very physical this season, but thankfully these outfits do her justice and once again she has accessibility to kick butt while looking lovely.
All of Snow White's clothes show her beauty inside and out. She has a huge heart and would do anything for her family. It is nice to see how the colors on her outfits reflect her personality. I am very excited to see what other interesting costumes she will wear in the future.
