Today is World Book Day, so children all over the UK (and world, I assume) are going to school dressed as their favourite book characters. I asked Syd a few weeks ago who she wanted to go dressed as, and she picked Sophie from the Tiger who came to tea. I was very pleased with the choice… Until I realised I’d have to make some funky patterned tights as they can’t be bought for love nor money. I was very relieved pleased when Sydney declared last week that she wanted to go dressed as MOG. (From Meg and Mog for World Book Day – not to be confused Mog the forgetful cat, as hubby did).
Meg and Mog for World Book Day
I figured that the easiest way to create the costume for Mog from Meg and Mog for World Book Day was… A stripy jumper, black leggings and socks, a cat tail and some kitty ears, It turned out they were much easier to come by than the funky patterned tights were proving to be. I wasn’t wrong!
I got the stripy top from Asda (£5). Her cat ears and cat tail cost £6 in a local fancy dress shop, but you can get them on Amazon, too. Syd already had black leggings.
I did Syd’s nose, mouth and whiskers with a waterproof liquid eye liner. It cost me £1.50 in Superdrug. (I’m going to have fun getting that off later, aren’t I)!
Giddy Mog Alert!
Drawing on a wriggley, excited three year old is no easy task, so it’s not perfect. She looks like some kind of cat-bunny hybrid to me, but Sydney was more than pleased with the end result! I put her hair in 2 buns, right behind her cat ears. In the end, I figured that if she took off her headband, she would still have cat ears, then!
I have to say, for my first attempt at a world book day costume, I am pretty pleased with the results. What do you think? Did your little one dress up today? Finally, if you enjoyed this post, check out my family category.
