Unique Kids Costumes For World Book Day

If you follow The Inspiration Edit regular you will know that we love to read children’s books. We run a Linky called KLTR which stands for Kids Love To Read. Last year for World Book Day we shared some great World Book Day Costumes and I thought it would be fantastic to do this again.

We contacted Fundelia our go to online store for everything fancy dress and pitched the idea to create this wonderful World Book Day blog post. I am so excited. My husband took some amazing photos. Sylvia and her friend did wonderful and had so much fun and now they have a large variety of costumes to choose from when they need to go to school in fancy dress.

I find the children at school can really compete when it comes to going to school in a great costume. They all want to be different and the more unique the better. So here are some fabulous ideas for World Book Day this year. We sure hope you enjoy reading our post.

This costume is a white dress and has silver accents, white guaze and a lovely headpiece. RRP £31.99

The Fantastic Mr Fox

This is the perfect costume for the Roald Dahl book The Fantastic Mr Fox. In fact this costume could be used for a number of books and could even be used as a wolf costume in Red riding hood or The Three Little pigs. Sylvia loved this costume as did her friend and it is a great buy at only £11.97

We have loved testing out these fancy dress costumes from Funidelia and in the coming weeks will be sharing photo shoots for each costume in our Sylvia’s Style category of the blog. It’s going to be a lot of fun. You can also look out for the costumes on our Instagram feed.  Which costume would your child like for World Book Day?

  1. My son is almost 2 so we are just getting to a point where he really enjoys me reading to him. I didn’t even know World Book Day existed! these costumes are so great because you can also wear them for Halloween.

    1. That’s so exciting. I remember when my daughter dressed as a cute pumpkin one day and it was so super cute. She was only 18 months. I bet your son will look lovely in a mini outfit.
