Hello.

I'm supposed to dress up at work (a primary school) for World Book day next week and don't have a clue what to go as. I'm also going to a 'songs from the musicals' sing along in a month or so -so if there's anything that'll double up for that too it'd be great.

Hope you can give me some good ideas, I'm sick of going as a witch!

How about Heidi?  That'd work for both.

...and that's where my ideas end for now.  Sorry!  I'll think of more, I'm sure.

ETA:  some of the biggest fairy tale characters make appearances in "Into the Woods", including Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, and Cinderella.  And my God...it's one of the most awesome musicals ever.

Jekyll and Hyde, too, but depending on the grades you work with, some takes on that may be inappropriate.

Oh, and Eliza Doolittle (from Pygmalion).  For that matter, Dr. Doolittle is a book, too, and you could do a cute version of that.

hmm... I was thinking about Dorothy too.

I've already got the shoes! What kind of a dress did she wear? You think it'll be easy to make?

Thanks for helping everyone!  Grin

Oooh, thanks! Do you happen to have a link for it? Or to somewhere I can buy a pattern?

Thanks!

On a completely different tangent... Are there any book characters with pink hair?

I'm sure there's fairies and stuff with pink hair. Also a lot of anime characters, though I don't know if you'd like to do that...

Dorothy sounds like a good costume.

Jo-Ann's, Hobby Lobby, Hancock's, anyplace that carries patterns on a regular basis should have it in stock (albeit in the back of the drawers as it's categorized with the Halloween stuff). If you live in BFE and don't have those readily available Simplicity.com (unless it's Butterick, it  might be Butterick, that's just .com too).

Tonks from Harry Potter has pink hair.

Also, I hate to sound rude, but don't make us craftsters do all your work for you. It is very simple to google Simplicity and look through their patterns. It is also pretty simple to google the words fabric store and where you live to see if there are fabric stores around you.

Also, this post actually belongs on the Costumes non halloween board over here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=405.0
