Don’t worry you still have over a week to get the costume World Book Day is Thursday 1st March. If you have a child who is in primary school or even nursery like Jess you might have to hunt a costume out for them. I already have actually purchased Jess’s I got it off eBay this year she is going to be Tinkerbell. As you know we are not huge fans of been falling into the stereotypes so this world book day is not going to feature any princess even though I have chosen just girls outfits.
You might not have time to go online and purchase them outfits without having to worry if the costume is going to arrive on time. I have chosen outfits which are all from Asda because they have some amazing ones this year and for most people, you can access a store easy and you can click and collect. Do not worry this is not a paid ad I have chosen these for myself.
The first outfit which I have chosen is this amazing Moana outfit I love how she is not a princess. But she is an amazing character who shows that girls can do anything if they put there mind to it and of course she does not need a man to save her like most other princess’s. This looks like an amazing quality item and it for sure does look like Moana however, maybe a little bit warmer than the ones which they sell in the Disney store which have crop tops. Of course, this is going to require your child something like tights and maybe something else underneath to keep them warm. After all, it is only the start of March. It does come with the necklace and as a hell of a lot of detailing on it what more could you want for £15, you can purchase it here.
Tinkerbell is who Jess is going as this book day, however, because I purchased hers off eBay I can not find the exact same one. I found this one from George which actually has nicer wings than the one Jess has but I have ordered her some new ones. I think this could be easily used for a fancy dress party or even if your child likes to dress up at home. This again is going to need something underneath and tights because it is that cold. I think I am going to put a cardigan on Jess until she is in nursery. This looks long enough as well so that they are going to be able to bend down without showing everything off which is always something which you want. This comes in at £13 which is one of the cheaper ones and available from here.
I choose wonder women outfit is actually exclusive to online but you can do click and collect. In this house, we are a huge fan of superhero films. Of course, there are not many which are female so when I saw this I knew I had to include it in a post. It does have the cape which I know Jess would love running around with on her back pretending that she can actually fly. Who would not like that at the end of the day, it also comes with the headpiece which makes you look even more like wonder women. This would be great if you were going to attend events such as ComicCon later in the year as well because for sure you could wear it there. It comes in at £15 and can be purchased here.
Girl’s can also be spiderman or spidergirl this year with this offering. Instead of having to wear a full bodysuit or onesie your little one could wear something which is a little bit more girly. This does come with the mask and the arm holders which will make them feel more like Spiderman. For some reason, I can imagine Jess running around trying to climb walls with this one. Again this would be another great one if you have anything to do with superhero’s coming or even comic con it comes in at £14 and can be purchased here.
Last year Jess went as Jessie which was adorable of course, even if I do say so myself. When searching I found this outfit which I think is even better than the one which she had last year, for example, it comes with a cowgirls hat which even had Jessie’s ponytail attached. This could be used for any occasion. It is long sleeved and has trousers as well which means that it will not need tight but it could be thin so you still need to put something under. For sure you could use this for any cowboy even which your child is going to be attending in the near future. I am sure everyone loves toy story so this is a bargain at £14 and can be purchased here
Black is a great colour for children because it does not show a lot of the muck so why opt put your child in it. Allowing them to dress up as Batgirl this is still very feminine it has actual sequins on the top half and then a net overlay on the bottom skirt. This does seem to be long enough to wear without tights, however, if it is cold you may want tights. This does come with a mask which is glitter and there is a cape attached to the back which you can pretend you are flying with. I think this is something which I am going to look at purchasing in the near future and this is only £14 and available here
I think when I picked these items out I feel like there was as superhero theme going on. Of course I had to include another if I choose this one which was supergirl. Jess for sure would love it because it had the cape which had a glittered design which means that it looks a little bit more girly than a normal super hero. This is one which I think which we would pair with tights even though it is layered it may not be thick enough because we know how cold it gets in the UK at the moment. You can purchase this one here for £15
Of course with all my superhero love if you have ready my blog before you might know I have a marvel obsession. I think my favourite actually had to be captain American so when I saw you could get a girls outfit and it does come with the shield I scream. I actually regret already getting Jess’s outfit because I know this would have been perfect even though we all know Jess would have been throwing this at me constantly. This comes with the mask which you can see the girl wearing which if it is anything like the horns Jess had for Halloween she would have on all the time. I think I might have to be on the hunt for this after book day and she can have it for dressing up this again comes in at £15 and is available here.
The final item which I have chosen is actually from a the boy section because it is Thor. This is my other favourite character this one I would think would be warmer with the fact that it is actually Long Sleeved and has Trousers rather than being a Skirt. This comes with a helmet mask which I can imagine Jess wearing even when she is not wearing the outfit. The cape does come off as well meaning that you should not trip on it. I also think that’s with it being a padded toro it will be warmer. Something’s which we’d are going to need if the weather forecasts are correct. This again is £15 available from here but I know for sure we would get a lot of wear out of it.
I hope you enjoyed seeing what I picked from Asda after all they seem to have some amazing costumes and we can all get to them easy. I have not been paid for this post at all but these are the ones which I have loved this year. I am amazed how many super hero’s their are for girls which is great it shows after all it is not just boys who like super heros.
What your you are children dressing up as for world book day?
