Our World Book Day 2019 Kids’ Costumes | Alice in Wonderland
We are book worms in this household and World Book Day is probably my favourite kids’ event of the year. I love the whole idea of encouraging children to read and to dress up as their favourite characters from books that they love. My girls are at an age now where they’re really enjoying dressing up whether it’s as book characters, characters from films or more general things like fairies, dinosaurs and witches!
My eldest daughter’s favourite book (and film) is Alice in Wonderland (she even had an Alice in Wonderland birthday party this year!) so when browsing for World Book Day costumes for 2019, I kept my eyes open for Alice in Wonderland themed ones as I knew she’d love that. In the end I found a Child Alice in Wonderland Costume (Disney) from Joke.co.uk and a Kids Wonderland Rabbit Costume from FancyDress.com.
The Alice in Wonderland costume (£14.99) is a classic Alice dress but with Disney Alice herself printed on the chest. The blue satin-like material looks great and the puffed sleeves and attached white apron are the perfect details. If you want to add white tights, black shoes and a bow headband to your costume, you can easily make it even more like the real Alice but I think it looks great like it is too. We got this in the size Medium: Age 5 to 6 years which is perfect for my tall, just turned 5-year-old. She loves it and is so excited to wear it to school for World Book Day!
For my youngest, we continued the Alice in Wonderland theme with the Kids Wonderland Rabbit Costume (£24.99). This stunning costume is very interesting as it’s a mix of the White Rabbit, the playing card characters and the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. It’s very unique and special and has beautiful golden and glittery details! The dress itself is adorable and comes with a removable ruffle piece for the neck and a headband with ears. I like that these are separate because my youngest is nearly 3 years old and not quite into wearing the neck piece and the ears all the time. She loves the dress and it fits her very well. We went for the size 3-4 Years for her which is what I’d normally go for as she’s usually in clothing larger than her age. For the complete look, add tights and fancy shoes instead of my toddler’s bare legs and football socks!
We also have an outfit that’s not from a book but from many little girls’ favourite film… Moana! My youngest is especially obsessed with Moana so we got her the Kids Moana Fancy Dress Costume (£16.99) from Fancydress.com and she couldn’t be happier! Size 3-4 Years fits her perfectly and she’s so pleased that she can dress up as Moana at home now. The dress is all in one piece and has all the details for your child to feel just like Moana of Motanui! It’s got mesh on the shoulders that makes it appear strapless but it of course stays firmly in place and seems very comfortable too.
Both FancyDress.com and Joke.co.uk have very impressive ranges of World Book Day (and fancy dress) costumes for kids and adults so I highly recommend checking them out. World Book Day is 3 weeks away now so it’s time to get those costumes sorted for the kids if you haven’t already!
