Behind the Scenes: Book Week Photoshoot

Book Week is one of our busiest times of the year here at CostumeBox, but it’s also a lot of fun. We’ve been so excited to share our new Book Week costumes that we decided to put on a photoshoot!

Wally can’t wait!

 

So we invited a couple of kids who love to read, then dressed them up as their favourite characters and let them loose in our photo studio! Take a peek at how we captured it all on camera with our behind the scenes snapshots.

This year we launched a whole new range of Book Week costumes including Roald Dahl characters and famous figures from the Horrible Histories series, and we’ve also got brand new versions of classics like Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, Where’s Wally, Harry Potter and more.
