Posted on February 17, 2014 by admin


World Book Day is well on the way, with just under a month to go until your favourite fictional characters come to life! In our last blog post, we looked at some top recommendations for book-based costumes for teachers (check out our top picks here).

This week we’ve put together some fab fiction costume ideas for girls, so if you’re out of ideas and searching for inspiration, then let Fancy Dress Ball be your guide to this year’s World Book Day!

Winnie the Witch

 Winnie the Witch

Thinking of magically transforming your daughter into everybody’s favourite accident-prone witch? This simple but effective costume can be created by using some stripy socks, a blue dress and some long beaded necklaces. A dash of red face paint on the nose will complete the look!

Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland continues to be an ever-popular costume choice for World Book Day. This excellent costume idea is a really creative twist on a classic character. Using a little artistic flair (and a cardboard box) to create the White Rabbit’s house, you can recreate this iconic scene from the book!

The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark


Jill Tomlinson’s Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark is a great character to recreate for kids of all ages. This excellent costume has been created using brown clothes and layered swatches of fabric for feathers.

Elmer the Patchwork Elephant

If you’re feeling extra crafty (and have the time!) then this excellent patchwork costume is a great way to recreate Elmer the Patchwork Elephant! If you’re handy with knitting needles why not consider turning an old patchwork quilt into this creative costume?

Phileas Fogg

Phileas Fogg

If you’ve got something of an artistic talent or can enlist the help of someone who does, then this fantastic Phileas Fogg costume is quite the showstopper!
