5 Funky Party Costumes That are Perfect for World Book Day

Where’s Wenda

Where’s Wally and his best friend Wenda are classic characters to dress up as for World Book Day!

This licensed Wenda costume includes a long-sleeved red and white striped top, a pale blue skirt, a pair of stripy tights, a bobble hat and a pair of black lens-free glasses.

3 sizes are available; 4-6 yrs, 7-9 yrs and 10-12 yrs.

Simple, comfortable but incredibly effective, you can’t go wrong dressing as Wenda for World Book Day this year.

The Gruffalo

With terrible tusks, and terrible claws and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws, The Gruffalo is the perfect character to dress up as to practise your scary face.

Brought to life perfectly in Axel Scheffler’s wonderful illustrations, The Gruffalo has a distinct look that can be quite difficult to replicate at home.

This all-in-one jumpsuit costume is cute, cuddly and comfy with high quality faux fur and a velcro fastening to allow you to get in and out with ease.

Featuring a padded hood to show The Gruffalo’s face, your little one will instantly be recognised without having to wear an awkward mask or time-consuming face paint.

And with attached hand and shoe covers and a detachable tail, your little monster will be ready to go off on their Gruffalo adventures in no time…

Willy Wonka

As Grandpa Joe himself said –

“Mr Willy Wonka is the most amazing, the most fantastic, the most extraordinary chocolate maker the world has ever seen!”

Who in their right mind wouldn’t want to dress up as him for World Book Day?

This costume is composed of five pieces; a purple velveteen jacket with tails and an integrated yellow waistcoat front with button accents, a pair of full-length green trousers, a large spotty bow-tie, a soft black velveteen top hat and a soft padded cane.

With lots of fun novelty pieces (who doesn’t love wearing a top hat and cane?!) and velcro fastenings for easy wearing, this makes for a costume bursting with fun.

A Griffindor Student

Surely every child dreams of being in Griffindor house at Hogwarts?

Whether you’re planning to go as Harry Potter himself or simply another brave young witch or wizard, this Griffindor robe will give your little one the authentic edge they need to make their costume stand out.

This costume includes a Griffindor robe with a lined hood, the Griffindor house crest on the front and a clasp for easy closure.

Why not use some other bits and bobs from around the house to make your child’s costume distinct? A cuddly owl is a great touch that your little one will love carrying around, or a cardboard box painted to look like a stack of books is a great way to channel their inner Hermione without carrying anything too heavy!
