This year I dressed as ‘The Cat in the Hat’ for World Book Day. The story written by Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel) is a childhood favourite of mine, and the costume was very easy to put together.
I found the hat, gloves, suspenders, bow tie and tail in a set from Amazon. As usual with women’s dressing up costumes, the actual dress for this character was too short. So I created my own version using a skirt and tights purchased separately from Amazon. I already owned the top, shoes and face paints (a Snazaroo palette).
