'Traditional' fancy dress a favourite for school kids to celebrate World Book Day, say allfancydress.com
March 02, 2013 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) The old ones are always the best. That's according to Essex-based fancy dress retailers, All Fancy Dress, who have experienced a growing demand for traditional storybook character fancy dress outfits to help children celebrate World Book Day at school and at home.
Timeless classics such as Romeo and Juliet and Henry VIII are often taught at school, with children fast growing an appreciation for the works of William Shakespeare and a fascination about life in the medieval age.
Stories based on traditional folklore such as Robin Hood are also great fun for kids to dress up as the face of Sherwood Forest with their merry men.
Steve John, of allfancydress.com, said: "World Book Day appears to be the ideal time for schools to embrace and uncover some of the UK's most celebrated playwrights and traditional folklore.
"The opportunity for kids to dress up in Tudor and Medieval fancy dress allows them to get into the mind-set of Shakespeare himself, complete with feathered hat, or even dressed as one of Shakespeare's most famous characters such as Romeo and Juliet to bring them to life in the 21st Century."
Aside from its awesome range of historical Book Day costumes, All Fancy Dress also boasts fun-filled lines modelled on modern-day classics such as Harry Potter and Roald Dahl's hit story books. Disney also remains a hit with the children, with the ability to dress up as their favourite animated film character.
