World Book Day - Costumes to buy!

World Book Day is just days away, so its time to be creative and make costumes! But what if you don't have the time, the creativeness or frankly don't want to?

Fancy dress though can get very expensive and regular readers will know I'm all about doing things cheaply. The super cheap way of putting an outfit together is to use clothes you've already got and add accessories.

Here's a few ideas for you.

Poundland - Bunny ears and tail set - £1.00
Team with a blue top and beige trousers for Peter Rabbit! Grey pictured but white also available!

Poundland - Tiara - £1.00
Has your little one got a party dress or maybe they've been a bridesmaid and got to keep the dress? Put together with this tiara and you've got yourself a princess! 
Dress your little one in a tshirt and jeans and with your bucket and dinosaurs you've got your own Henry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs!

Now. if you have a little more to spend or you can use your costume again take a look at these ideas!

Aldi - Goldilocks, Knight, Red Riding Hood, Pirate, Wizard Cloak - £4.99
A great bargain range but there's only five to choose from.

George @ ASDA - Fire Fighter,Sherlock Holmes, Pirate Girl, Frozen and much more - Starting at £10-£12
Double the price but there's a bit more detail to the outfits and they are a little better made.

Tesco - Peter Pan, Ariel, Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts and much more - Starting at £13
Another step up price wise but can be worn again and again.
