Hi everyone, my apologies if this has already cropped up on here! But I’m looking for inspiration. My ds is insisting on wearing one of his beloved Star Wars costumes for WBD, but to me it’s not really ‘booky’ enough. I’m trying to convince him into wearing something more inventive, but nothing is grabbing him. Has anyone any ideas to tempt a stubborn 6 year old??
When DS was 6 & 7 he went a Hiccup from how to train you dragon - different book so different costume each time
Roald Dahl day he went as Roald Dahl as his favourite book was going solo which made a change from the millions of Charlie's and UL's in the playground
Last year he went as Harry Potter
No idea what he's going as this year as his favourite book of the year so far was Wonder which isn't really dressing up friendly, trying to steer him towards some of the football books he likes or WW2 evacuees stories
Some ideas here Thankyou. We’ve had a chat about favourite books tonight so I’m hoping it will lead to a decision from him, he’s now brimming with suggestions! At least we have put the Darth Vader costume away
Good idea Paddington68 - my son went as the boy in a dress a couple of years ago. OH was horrified that I let him and that DS found it quite funny seeing how the different dresses twirled (he has an older sister). Mind you, he went more or less in school uniform last year as Just William which is pretty much the polar opposite!
Dd has a million books about puppies, and a dog onsie, so wbd is very easy this year. She wore a different dog onsie last year, and the year before she had a kitten hoodie. It's nice and easy having a child who is obsessed with animals as both books and clothes are animal based.
