Top Fancy Dress Outfits for World Book Day
It’s World Book Day next week and your kids’ schools might be having fancy dress days to celebrate! If you’ve run out of ideas for what they can dress up as, then we’ve picked out our favourite book character fancy dress outfits for them to try out.
1. Harry Potter – Party Delights
If your children are Harry Potter fans, then why not get them looking ready to go to Hogwarts with this Harry Potter School Robe Deluxe or this Harry Potter Gryffindor Robe? Team these robes with a wand and glasses for a boy and curly hair for a girl and your kids will become Harry or Hermione for the day.
2. Little Red Riding Hood – All Fancy Dress
For a girl, this cute Miss Hood Costume with a red cape is the perfect classic fairytale costume. For a boy, you can keep it simple by getting them to dress up as the Big Bad Wolf - this Big Head Wolf Costume will do just the trick!
3. Superheroes – Angel Fancy Dress
From Batman to Wonderwoman, there are loads of superheroes that your kids can choose to dress up as. We love this Silver Batman costume with the cape and face mask attached so you don’t have to worry about anything falling off. This Wonderwoman costume comes with a matching headband and gauntlets to complete the look nicely.
4. Roald Dahl – Party Delights
Kids and adults alike love Roald Dahl’s books and there are loads of great characters for kids to choose from. We particularly like this standout Willy Wonka costume and, for girls, this Matilda costume is sure to make them look the part – we recommend adding a red ribbon in their hair.
5. Alice in Wonderland and Where’s Wally – George at ASDA
There’s a great range of kid’s fancy dress costumes at ASDA and we’ve picked out a couple of our favourites! For girls, we love this Disney Alice in Wonderland Costume, complete with a cute pocket-watch bag and bow headband. For boys, this Where’s Wally Costume is super comfortable and we love the hat and glasses that it comes with.
If your kids love to dress up, why not invest in a Dress Up Storage Wardrobe (6), available from Aldi at just £14.99! The wardrobe comes in both space blue and princess pink, perfect for your little ones.
