Girls in the hood:
I've put together a complete tutorial on how to make a hooded cape. Use a deep red material, or something shimmery to jazz it up.

The outfit:
After you have the red riding hood, the rest of the outfit can be anything. Just don't over do the red. A nice short dress looks best.

The shoes:
Find a pair of red shoes or boots to match to the hood.

Don't forget the basket! With this costume, you can have a little basket that has goodies inside. See if you can get someone else to go as the Big Bad Wolf to make the party a little more interesting.
