Hi not sure if im posting this in the right place so apologies in advance.

When i collected my two ds today from nursery today i was informed that friday is dressing up day.I am at work the rest of the week and will find it hard to get to the shops.

Does anyone know of any online sites that do childrens costumes(ds1 is aged 3 and ds2 aged 2)that would perhaps deliver to work with next day delivery or have any other suggestions.

Just Google fancy dress next day - there's loads !

john lewis and elc have online stores

this place says same day delivery but I have no experience with them.

What kind of fancy dress? Are you sure it couldn't be homemade quickly and thrown together?

Is there a theme? Cobbled together homemade costumes are much more fun than bought ones!

Eg: black leggings, black t-shirt, ears on a headband, whiskers, stocking made into tail = cat.

Black leggings, black t-shirt, 8 stuffed stockings sewn on strategically = spider

Is there nothing you can cobble together. Apron and paper hat = chef?
Striped t-shirt and plastic dagger = pirate
Any police/firemans hats etc you already have with more or less right colour clothes?

Thanks for all your ideas didnt even cross my mind to make one.No theme its just a charity fun week.
