Lady Of The Palace Costume

Wickford, UK - 20 February 2011 All Fancy Dress, one of the UK’s leading fancy dress retailers, has announced that Lady of the Palace will become a popular choice with fancy dress lovers this year, as World Book Day will be taking place early next month.

World Book Day is a fantastic event that has taken place in schools across the country since its inception in 1998. Every year the event has become bigger and better, and has seen children becoming more actively involved in readying and storytelling.

One of the most popular kinds of costumes that are bought for Book Day are the historic and period costumes. The popularity of these outfits may be due, in part, to the way the subject is now taught at schools, with a greater emphasis on interaction through dressing up and play.

Famous historical stories have been a source of inspiration for many Book Day costumes, like the Lady of the Palace, which is inspired by the Tudor era. They are many popular stories involving the Tudor period including King Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth I and Mary of Tudors. The Victorian era is also popular amongst children, inspired by great literary figures such as Dickens.

Matt Foden of All Fancy Dress commented: “Book Day has become a huge phenomenon in recent years, with children dressing up in a wide array of costumes from their favourite books. The two most popular kind of costumes are the historical ones, such as the Tudor and Victorian style costumes, as well as characters from traditional and modern books. Fairy tale characters, such as Red Riding Hood are popular, and so too are the more modern book characters such as Harry Potter’. We expect the trend for children to dress up in this way to continue, and I personally think it’s a great way for children to really engage with books and fire their imaginations!”
