All Saints Day Costume- St. Maria Goretti

My daughter chose to dress up as St. Maria Goretti this year for All Saints Day.

Maria Goretti died at age 12 years of age after an attempted raped that ended up in her stabbing death.  Maria's father died when she was 9 years old, and Maria spent her days helping raise her siblings and helping out on the farm in the countryside in Italy.

Maria Goretti is the patron saint of purity and crime victims.  For the costume, we purchased a peasant costume from Amazon for around $18.00.  I added a toy dagger and plastic lilies, her symbols in picture and art.

You can purchase the Girl's Peasant Dress here; a plastic lily here and plastic dagger here.  A quick and easy All Saints Day Costume.
