World Book Day — costume ideas

BEFORE the letter is sent out from school, can I remind you that it’s World Book Day on March 7.

It’s that time of year again when hundreds of Harry Potter look-alikes make their way through the school gates as they have been told to dress like their favourite character.

World Book Day is just one example whereby you need a wardrobe full of costumes, props and wigs.

To give you a helping hand for when you next need to send your loved one off as a Cher look-alike, the Honey Monster or any other well-known face from page, screen or theatre, we have taken a look at wigs.

There are vast differences in quality with wigs between those which look the part and will last for years compared to the cheap and cheerful versions more accustomed to a New Year’s Eve party.

The wigs we looked at were very affordable, yet very high quality.

Supplied by Wonderland Wigs, the sample hairpieces we got to don were extremely impressive.

Mimicking the style of pop superstar Katy Perry with a bright blue wig and then transforming looks with rich red straight wig named ‘Rita’, both were truly authentic.

Taking a look behind the scenes at the Wonderland Wigs website fills you with confidence — they’re proud to note that their wigs have been worn by loads of famous faces in the past.

Manufactured in the United Kingdom from synthetic fibre, the wigs are remarkably easy to wear.

I wouldn’t look too fetching in a Katy Perry blue wig and so I gave my wife the joy of putting these hairpieces to the test.

Another sign of quality is the comprehensive list of care instructions. They tell you how to wear it, how to style it and even how to wash it.

If you’re stuck for ideas come World Book Day or any other fancy dress event, this review proves to me that you can get quality at an affordable price — both of our wigs retail at £24.99
