Hello detectives! If you live in the UK, you’ll know that there’s a big week coming up. 27th February – 3rd March is World Book Week, when authors visit schools, and children get to dress up as their favourite book characters.
I’ve already heard that some of you would like to dress up as Daisy, Hazel and their friends, and I couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you so much for choosing my characters – it’s an honour!
If you would like some tips, I have good news: a Deepdean uniform is super easy to put together.
All you need is a grey pinafore (or grey skirt) and a white blouse, plus a grey jumper or grey blazer to put on over it. On your legs you can wear tights or long socks, and you should have a stripy tie to wear around your neck. If you want, you can wear a hat, to make you look just like you come from the 1930s, and for the finishing touch, all you need is a Deepdean crest!
Below are two that my wonderfully talented friend Dustin Hansen drew for me. One shows the real colours of the crest, and the other is left black and white, so you can colour it in if you like. You can print both out, and stick them to your jumper or blazer – and just like that, you’re a Deepdean girl! Put your hair in plaits or a ponytail, grab your magnifying glass and notebook, and you’re ready to go.
