4 Ideas For World Book Day Costumes

Posted in The World of Smiffys Fancy Dress by Smiffys Liverpool on January 30th 2018
If you’re interested in dressing up for World Book Day 2018, there are lots of fantastic works of literature to choose from for your costume inspiration. However, with such a wide range of costumes, it can be difficult to decide which costume to choose. So to give you a helping hand, here is a list of 4 ideas for World Book Day costumes.

4 Ideas For World Book Day Costumes

  • 1. Pick A Character From Your Favourite Book
    Indeed there are lots of different books that you could look to for costume inspiration. However, a good starting point could be to look for costumes of characters from your favourite book or author.

    For example, if you are a fan of J. R. R. Tolkien and his high-fantasy works such as The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, you might be interested in dressing up as one of the many characters from the works of J. R. R. Tolkien. If you’re searching for a costume for your child, perhaps this Boys Thorin Oakenshield Set will be of interest to you?

    However, if you’re a fan of the horrible histories series, you can browse through a variety of different horrible histories costumes on our online store. With lots of costumes to choose from including Guy Fawkes, Blackbeard, and the famous Boudica, you’ll be spoiled for choice!

  • 2. Choose A Popular Character
    If you’re looking for a fancy dress costume to wear for World Book Day, you might consider wearing a costume of a popular character.

    For example, you could opt for a costume from a Roald Dahl story. You could dress up as Matilda, Fantastic Mr Fox, Miss Trunchbull, or maybe even the BFG. There are lots of wonderful Roald Dahl fancy dress costumes to choose from at Smiffys-Liverpool. We even have a section of our online store dedicated to Roald Dahl costumes! So if you want to dress up as Mr Twit from Roald Dahl’s The Twits, perhaps you could find a fantastic beard to wear in our Roald Dahl section such as a Long Beard Grey or a Long Beard Black.

  • 3. Look At Books With Film Adaptations
    If you’re searching for a costume that can be easily recognised by others, perhaps you could choose to wear a costume from a book which has been adapted into a film.

    For example, you could decide to wear costumes from the Harry Potter series of books. Both the books and the films are popular with both adults and children, so lots of people will recognise Harry Potter themed fancy dress. Additionally, just like Roald Dahl books, we also have a section in our fancy dress website dedicated to Harry Potter costumes, with lots of fantastic fancy dress choices for men, women, and children.

    With a fantastic selection of costumes for children such as the Childs Gryffindor Robe, and lots of other wonderful costumes including an Official Harry Potter Scarf, an Official Hermione Granger Wand, and an Official Harry Potter Wand, you’ll find lots of fabulous Harry Potter costumes on our online store. However, if you would prefer to browse through our selection of Harry Potter costumes in person, visit our friendly team in store at our fancy dress shop in Liverpool!

  • 4. Discuss Costumes With Friends And Create A Group Costume!
    If you’re unsure what costume to wear for World Book Day, discuss fancy dress costumes with others who are also dressing up for the event.

    Children who are celebrating World Book Day at school could organise a group costume with their friends. Perhaps they could dress up in Horrible Histories costumes. For example, they could all dress up in costumes about the First World War, perhaps wearing a costume such as the Boys Horrible Histories WWI Soldier Costume.

    However; adults can also join in the group costume fun. Many teachers decide to dress up in fancy dress costumes for the World Book Day celebrations. So perhaps a department could decide on a theme or a book to dress up from. Perhaps a group of teachers could dress up as teachers from the Harry Potter books, or perhaps they could dress up as fairytale characters.
