Model Alexis Ren Puts Rebellious Twist on Classic Disney Costume

Come to think of it, this character always has been quite sassy.

Alexis Ren channeled her inner sassy fairy this Halloween. Is there anyone more fitting to dress up as Tinkerbell? I think not.

The SI Swimsuit model looked gorgeous and exactly like the animated character, with a bit of edge. Ren posted a carousel on Instagram of photos of herself in a mini sparkly green dress (with a botched hem, of course), white wings, a bedazzled green choker and Tinkerbell’s signature blonde updo. Ren kept her glam shimmery and effortless with a dash of green eyeshadow.

“pov: tinkerbell is tired of peters shit,” she captioned the post.

The first photo features Ren squatting on the floor and gives fans a peek of her flawless side profile with a cigarette in hand. In the third photo, she’s standing tall and showing off her long legs and gorgeous sparkly green stilettos next to a bottle of beer. In the final photo of the post, she sits in front of three older men, also smoking, behind a backgammon table.

This Tinkerbell is all in.

The 25-year-old was photographed by Bonnie Nichoalds, and her makeup was done by Karla Bonilla and Nova Kaplan, who captioned her post “Tink’s rebellious phase 🧚✨.”

The Santa Monica native recently made her big-screen debut on Sept. 23 in a mystery mob film called The Enforcer, alongside Antonio Banderas and Kate Bosworth. She plays Lexus, a young girl girl who gets involved in a dangerous scene and has a love story of her own.

“I felt very connected to her,” Ren said of her character. “We’re very similar. She has a really open heart. She’s grounded, she has a good head on her shoulders. She came from different life events (and) kind of went down like a darker path because she didn’t have people there to support her. I really dove into that story and how I would feel being placed in that situation.”
