10 best fancy dress costumes for kids

Ladybird Fairy Bug Costume by Frilly Lily

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the end of summer. After a momentary heat wave at the beginning of September, we’re back to drizzly mornings, damp shoes and dark evenings.  Luckily for those of you with children, the initial apprehension of going back to school is soon replaced by the excitement of new friends, endless birthday parties and, of course, Halloween. With that in mind, we’ve put together an edit of our favourite children’s fancy dress costumes that will make playtime more imaginative. Sadly, these items are only available in children’s sizes.
