With World Book Day 2019 fast approaching, we want to make sure you’re prepared with a great costume that’s also affordable and very little fuss. This year it’s 7 March so the clock is ticking for all those bibliophiles who want to get into the spirit. Whether you’re a teacher, a parent who hasn’t got time to make something from scratch, or part of a growing trend of people who dress up for WBD at work, we’ve got you covered.
To get inspired for some World Book Day ideas, we thought we’d take a look back at a couple of our all-time favourites, from the elaborate to the simple.
Meagan Marie as Ciri
Long-admired by us, cosplayer @MeaganMarie did this amazing photo shoot in Denmark a couple years back. As you’ll see, every little detail has been planned and executed perfectly, from the hair to the costume to the make-up. The hard work paid off with some incredible shots that transport us right into the heart of the world created by Andrzej Sapkowski.
Jazzmin Jolly as Belle
Jazzmin Jolly looks absolutely stunning dressed up as Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Disney characters are timeless for World Book Day fancy dress, as they're easily recognisable and will get your kids excited about celebrating!
