Children and adults alike will have fun accessorizing this costume with licensed to kill cards and spy kits that can be made using household items and creativity.
Dracula is a fun favorite and does not cost much at all as most of the costume consists of makeup. Again, the majority of the outfit can be derived from various clothing items already in possession save the cape, which can be easily tailored. Makeup kits can be purchased from most retail stores at a very cheap price.
For those who are able to sew, kids book week costumes can offer a wide array of options for the seamstress to choose from to embark on a fun project that will illuminate any child's creative edge during Book Week. Princess dresses are relatively easy to create. Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz is another favorite with her classic blue and white dress and pigtails. The energetic seamstress can even make companion costumes to be worn by siblings or friends to accompany Dorothy such as Scarecrow, Tinman, Lion, the Wicked Witch, Glenda or any of the other favorites from this classic tale.
For those with time constraints or lacking the skills to make a custom costume, the Internet is a great resource to utilise.
