Nativity Costume HELP!!

(10 Posts)

Please oh wise mumsnetters... DS is in his first school nativity and I have to provide a ‘kings page’ costume. What on earth would that be? I was thinking just a kings costume without a crown? So I’ve got a long red smock and have made a tabard for over the top with a curtain tie back belt... but I’m doubting myself :-(

Usually for page I'd say matching polo neck and tights/leggings with a tabard over the top (with curtain tie belt)

Sounds good to me. Or maybe shorter tunic with leggings?

Oooo short rather than long tabard then?

Thanks soooo much for the replies so far, I usually love making costumes but this has really thrown me. Probably a bit of ‘new parent in school’ anxiety kicking in...

Simplified version of this type of thing. Think you could get away with pe pumps for shoes.

Cool, think I could easily shorten my tabard and bung some leggings underneath.

Thank you, that feels so much easier now!

What you've got sounds spot on, don't worry about it being "perfect". You will find that there is a huge range/variety from the token costume to the totally over the top costume, aim to be somewhere in the middle! fgrin

Thank you, I know I am totally overthinking it. I’d ask the other mums but so far that’s proving difficult as they all stand in a closed little huddle ignoring newcomers like me.
It would have been so much easier if he’d been a sheep or something!

Ah yes! But which breed of sheep? fgrin
