World Book Day: Agent Fienne is I.P.L.O.P. ready!

World Book Day is next week. It’s the day I’m sure any child of a children’s author dreads. My son is no different. He knows I’m going to spend most of February leaving whopping great hints about how wonderful it would be to see him dressed up as a character from the world of Dave Pigeon. And this month has been no different.

This year though, he’s lowered his bribe threshold and made my World Book Day already by deciding he’s going to dress up as International Police Legion of Pigeons Secret Agent Fienne from Dave Pigeon (Nuggets!).
I got to work fashioning a costume from an old black hooded sweatshirt, navy blue shorts and some grey felt. Using a similar concept to his World Book Day 2015 costume, I cut out felt feathers and stitched them on to the sweatshirt and shorts.

To complete the look we added a spy ankle cuff made from black paper and silver paint, an IPLOP badge, a yellow cardboard beak and some spy glasses.


If you are creating a Dave Pigeon-inspired World Book Day costume, do send in your photos. We love seeing your creations here at Dave Pigeon HQ.

To get you started here is a template for a Dave Pigeon mask and some ideas for a Dave Pigeon costume.

Happy Costume Making!
