With just over a week to go before parents, teachers and kids will be celebrating their favourite fictional fancies, we’re taking a look at some great costume ideas for boys.

There are loads of simple and creative ideas that you can easily achieve. So if you’re looking for some fresh fiction ideas for boys’ costumes then let Fancy Dress Ball be your guide and check out these cool costume ideas…

The Tiger Who Came to Tea

Recreate everybody’s favourite cheeky dinner guest from Judith Kerr’s beloved children’s book The Tiger Who Came to tea. You don’t necessarily need a tiger costume to achieve this look, just some orange pyjamas, some fabric paint and some face paint should do the trick!

The Guffalo

The most feared creature of the forest is another great costume that’s fairly simple to achieve. If you’re a creative type who loves a bit of crafting, this Gruffalo costume can easily be put together with just the right amount of felt and imagination!

Bert from Mary Poppins

Oh it’s a jolly holiday with Mary! Drawing inspiration from Dick Van Dyke’s costume from Disney’s film adaptation of PL Travers’ beloved novel Mary Poppins, this character is instantly recognisable. Using a straw hat, bow-tie and ribbon you can create this cute, colourful costume.

Max from Where the Wild Things Are

First published in 1963, Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are still remains as one of the most popular children’s book today. This costume for protagonist Max can be created using a onesie, pyjamas and a little creativity for the crown and tail!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Yet another classic character is The Very Hungry Caterpillar from Eric Carle’s 1969 children’s picture book. There are loads of different ways to create this costume, but this great example uses a long green tunic and paper mache to recreate our favourite caterpillar!
