Find a show-stopping outfit for this year’s book week parade!

It's that time of year again! Time to start thinking about what your child will wear for this year's book parade. Book week is all about encouraging reading fun stories and adventures and allowing kids to release their creative side. 

If you're looking for a show-stopping book week costume that will have everyone talking, here are a few ideas to get you started. For girls, how about a princess or mermaid costume? For boys, how about dressing up as a knight or pirate? And for those who want to go completely outside the box, how about a classic costume like the hungry caterpillar? 

No matter what you choose, with a little creativity and imagination, you're sure to find the perfect book parade costume for your child.

Children’s costumes for book characters

This year’s book week theme is Dreaming With Eyes Open which is open to lots of different interpretations. But you can’t go wrong with popular characters like Harry Potter, Peter Pan and the Mad Hatter. 

For younger age groups, characters from more modern and popular literature like Star Wars, Toy Story and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are always a huge hit. Many children still love going as classic characters like the wicked witch, tin man or a young wizard which also fits with this year’s theme. Find your favourite book characters in our wide range of book character costumes!


Kids book week fancy dress outfits

If you’re looking for some easy book week costumes this August, try something a bit fancier. Superhero costumes are an option that looks great and makes children feel strong. Try searching for Spiderman, Batman, Ironman, Wonderwoman and Superman. A fancy option for girls includes Disney princesses like Cinderella, Anna and Elsa from Frozen, Belle or Rapunzel. Or for something different, maybe try a Disney villain like Maleficent. 

Funny book week costume ideas for kids

There are a lot of different funny book characters to choose from if you’re looking to incite a giggle or two at the book week parade. Dr Seuss's characters are a popular choice as well as unconventional characters like a green pea, a slice of pizza, hot dogs, a cockroach and a literal book worm.
