I devised a cunning costume


Earlier I had a little moan about D suddenly wanting a costume for WBD.
Well now I have something. D is going to be Death from Mort by Terry Pratchett.

He will be wearing an old Halloween basic skeleton suit (the plain black with bold basic white bones painted on), a long black cardie of mine with a hood will be the cloak, a teddy rat in one of my cardie pockets and the Pictionary egg timer in the other pocket.

Then the best bit, I’m making a scythe using glue, a plastic pole and some corrugated card for the blade.


Pegged together whilst the glue dries overnight. Turtle added for Pratchett fans.

He’s going to look really mean! I will make sure he takes a copy of Mort in his bag just in case the teachers have not read it.


I only had a tiny bit of silver paint but hopefully it’s just enough shine and colour to make it look metallic.

If you’re wondering what world book day is about maybe have a little nosey at the official site.

I’ve just added this to the Love your Post blog hop.
