World Book Day Fancy Dress Costume Review

World book day is on the 7th March in 2013.

World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.  children get a special £1 book token which they can redeem for a special book.

Many schools encourage children to dress up as a character from a book they enjoy. My kids love this in the past they have been Alice in Wonderland and the inevitable Harry Potter.

This year they were invited to choose a costume to review by who sell a wide range of fabulous fancy dress costumes. Delights have a dedicated page for World Book Day costumes, which saves you ages searching around. .

My daughters topic at school this term is Robin Hood and as we live in Nottingham too she is so caught up in it! She was delighted to receive a Robin Hood girls outfit. (£11.99)

This five piece Robin Hood Girl Costume includes a white top with elasticated neckline, long sleeves with velcro fastening cuffs and tie-lace detail along with a skirt with jagged hemline and elasticated waist for comfort. A co-ordinating waistcoat with lace detail to front and to complete this outlaw fancy dress costume also included is a matching green hat with red side feather and a pair of brown, foam boot tops (to wear over their own shoes, a perfect costume for World Book Day. Lisi said this was ‘really comfy’

My son loves the Beano so we chose a Dennis the Menace costume to review for him. I have never seen on with the mask before . This was great and made us all laugh so much.

 This officially licensed, three piece Dennis The Menace Costume features a long sleeved, red and black striped top along with a pair of black, shorts with elasticated waist and two front pockets with catapult print, also included to complete this well-loved Beano fancy dress costume is an elasticated character face mask.This costs £23.99

It is great quality, doesn’t irritate at all because its just shorts and a top with a mask to put on AND he feels he can be a real menace whilst wearing it !!

We love these costumes from and they have LOADS more ideas in a big range of prices

For kids that don’t really like dressing up I think this Victorian Urchin set is perfect…just a waistcoat and cap and bingo you have Oliver Twist!
