Win a £40 Voucher for allfancydress.com

This is a useful competition for the holiday as children love dressing up and getting into character.  My boys do not bring out their fancy dress clothes as much as they used too, but there was a time when they were always putting some combination or another on and them parading around or heading off on an adventure together. 

It is great fun seeing what they come up, especially as they tended not to wear one complete costume but rather bits from a few together (think cowboy hat, Super Mario gloves, a police jacket and train conductor trousers and you have some idea of their chosen “style”!).

The voucher would give you plenty of choice, allfancydress.com stock a wide range of outfits with plenty to appeal to all ages.  It always helps to have a few in standby ready to pull out for World Book Day or similar, I am not the kind of mum that can glimpse at some material and magically make an amazing outfit from it!  So I tend to always search online for whatever my boys need to dress up as, we have had a reindeer, a camel, Where’s Wally, a sea-worthy pirate and many more over the years. 

Fortunately there is always ample choice on the Internet so the fact I am hopeless at costume making has gone unnoticed so far.  It does not feel like I am cheating, I get a big sense of satisfaction shopping around and getting a good deal for whatever I am buying, just because I did not painstakingly sew every button on does not make my boys look any less adorable when the order finally arrives.  Although hats off to you if you can make your own costumes (part of me might just envy you a teeny bit!).

We also always make a big deal with Halloween costumes for the boys usually; here they are one year looking super cute.  


I wonder what I can find for them this year, I quite like the Ghostbuster costume, perhaps when they are ready to be introduced to the film they will enjoy wearing one of those.


If you would like to enter just complete the rafflecopter below by the 19th of August.
