With book week around the corner its time to start thinking about what costume your little prince/princess will be wearing for parade. Don’t worry I’m here to help.
First though I’ll explain why I needed to research “How to find a Book week costume in a hurry”……
This time last year my family and I were re-locating from Darwin to the Sunshine coast. It took 5 days to drive across the NT and QLD. We arrived on a Friday and the kids were booked in to start school the following Tuesday.
I was told on their first day at school that they would all need to wear Alice in Wonderland Costumes that Friday for Parade. I only had 4 days to find 3 Alice in Wonderland costumes.
In the mean time our container was about to arrive and needed unpacking and I had no idea where to find costumes at short notice.
This is the kind of situation when a “Made at home” costume just isn’t an option. Thankfully there are a few companies in Australia that can deliver costumes at short notice. We chose to use www.costumebox.com.au and I’m pleased to say that my kids surprised their classmates by turning up in awesome costumes at such short notice.
If you need a costume at short notice here are my top 5 places to look:
Do you like the Image I created at the top of this post? The models are my gorgeous 6 yr olds wearing their Alice in Wonderland costumes from last year. If you want to get a little extra out of this years Book week dress ups, why not book a storytelling photoshoot with me and I will create your very own special piece of art to hang on your wall.
