    Did you hire it or make it ? seen some fab homemade costumes this morning at school .

    We're not doing it until next Thursday apparently. I don't think the teachers have a clue at our school. Everything is done on the wrong days. Chinese New Year was a full week out as well! BUT my eldest will be going as a dinosaur!

    Yep, it's really irritating. They previously told us he could go as any book character,now it's an animal from a book, I'm properly irritated, but we do have a dino mask and hat thing anyway, so it's do-able.

    Omg , thats not much warning is it , at least we got the letter before they broke up for half term .

    My daughter when as a butterfly. Monkey puzzle was her favourite book at the time of asking so the wife quickly sorted out a costume before she changed her mind.

    My son went as Harry Potter, not very original but easy to get the costume.

    I think some parents see it as a fancy dress competition and forget its supposed to be a character from their favourite book. (Not having a dig at anyone here before i get attacked!:D)

    My niece went as Winston Smith, I don't think her classmates saw the Irony.
