Fictional characters

Friday, August 27th, 2010

Last week was book week at Willowbank school and the kids were encouraged to dress up as their favourite fictional character.

Evan decided he wanted to be Klaus from A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Lauren decided she wanted to be Asterix.

The evening before, we spent some time together making their costumes. They turned out quite well and both kids were really happy to go to school in their civvies and dressed up as someone special.

Lauren’s class did a good job getting all dressed up. Most of the kids had some sort of costume on – the other grades seemed to mostly go mufty.

The kids had a parade of the dressed up kids and Lauren won an award for the best dressed! She got lots of things, a number of books and some sparkly glue sticks! She was very chuffed – so were we!

Here’s a shot of the kids:

Actually, Lauren looked a bit like Zelda from Legend of Zelda!
