World Book Day is an excellent opportunity to celebrate our favourite characters from the stories we love, and many schools, nurseries and social groups hold dressing up events to make the most of the occasion. The official date in Ireland varies from 5th March to 23rd April each year, and we’re here to make sure that you’re fully prepared! Here at PartyWorld, we have all of the World Book Day costumes you need, including popular characters such as Harry Potter and Where’s Wally, as well as more unusual choices.
Roald Dahl was a master of children’s literature, and your child can become their favourite gruesome character for the day with our Mr or Mrs Twit costumes, Willy Wonka costume or Miss Trunchbull costume. David Walliams is often said to be following in Dahl’s footsteps, and our Mr Stink and Billionaire Boy costumes are the perfect way to step into his unique and hilarious stories. We have a great range of Superhero and Princess costumes, which all have a comic book or fairytale behind them, and the classics are also popular, with choices such as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and Peter Rabbit. You’ll love our Victorian and Medieval costumes, so you can create any character from a historical children’s story, and we will be happy to help you find exactly what you need.
