Do You Have Your Costumes Ready For World Book Day?

posted by on November, 07, 2016 in Book Week tagged with Book Week

While World Book Day seems like a long way away (set to take place on March 2nd next year), you can never have enough time to start planning your World Book Day costumes… so to help you all get started, we thought we’d blog about what you could potentially get dressed up as. If you have any ideas of your own, make sure you share them with us on the blog!


Who isn’t a Harry Potter fan, we ask you? We bet hundreds of youngsters will go to school dressed up as Harry, Hermione and Ron but why don’t you think outside the box just a little bit and go dressed as Harry’s wonderful companion, Hedwig? Owl costumes are very easy to find and they look amazing – you’ll be the best dressed kid in school.


2016 really has been the year of Roald Dahl, with countless events going on all over the country to help celebrate his centenary. In fact, September 13th – when he was born – is celebrated every year. To help keep this tradition going, why don’t you get all dressed up as one of our favourite characters, Matilda? Absolutely perfect for World Book Day!

Alice in Wonderland

Lewis Carroll’s classic story is another one of our very favourites here at Wonderland Party and dressing up as Alice is always a lot of fun. We have a brilliant Alice costume in stock so why don’t you try it on for size?

Peter Rabbit

There are so many different options from the wonderful world of Beatrix Potter that you’ll have a hard time making up your mind but when it comes down to the wire, Peter Rabbit takes our vote since he’s one of her most beloved characters. Either Peter or Mrs Tiggywinkle!

The Gruffalo

The Gruffalo is one of the most well-loved children’s characters of our time and your little one is sure to love dressing up as him for World Book Day. Make sure that you help them get into character by watching the DVD and reading the books over and over again before March 2nd.


If you’re hard pushed for time, simply dress your child up as Tintin, boy detective. It couldn’t be easier to get this costume together – all you need is a blue jumper, a bit of hair gel and a stuffed toy dog to serve as Snowy. Or you could take your actual dog to school. Let’s see how the teachers react!

Paddington Bear

Another easy costume idea to put together. Just stock up on a blue duffel coat, a black hat, red Wellington boots and a battered old suitcase. Don’t forget the marmalade sandwiches either!

Why don’t you have a browse of our website to see what costumes we’ve got in stock and if there’s anything there that you’d like to dress up as? The good news is that you’ve got plenty of time to make a decision!
