The director of ds's nursery is moving away and they are having a fancy dress day to celebrate.

So any suggestions within the following constraints:

No face paint - allergic
No masks - won't keep on for more than 5 minutes, can't have most elastic anyway so more trouble than worth.
Not too hot - has to wear it all day (have a fabulous elephant costume I have been saving for him, but made out of polar fleece and he will boil)
I have no sewing machine.

Oh, I wish he was a girl and I just stick a tutu, a pair of wings and a tiara and voila - instant fairy.

Pirates are very popular at that age!

Pair of cut of trousers with raggedy bottoms, white top, red scarf tied round waist and a hankerchief or bandana on head. Eye patch if he will tolerate it!

cut off

Agree - Pirates are a good choice. Or a King. Crown and a cloak and its obvious what they are.

Like the king idea as he can take it off later.

I refuse to do Bob the Builder as everyone will be expecting it.

Any unisex ideas?

Noddy- red top, blue shorts, scarf of yellow fabric with painted red dots, blue hat with a bell sewn on.The only thing that would need sewing is the hat, and you wouldn't need a machine for that.

Woolies actually do a Noddy costume now.

I've got a Noddy costume from Woolworths, it was about 12 pounds. It comes with hat, shirt, trousers and shoes.
