Marvellous Costume Make

Roald Dahl's Marvellous Childrens Charity

Get your creative juices flowing this summer for a chance to win some amazing prizes

Cut up those cereal boxes, bring out the paint and get ready for the Dahlicious Dress Up Day by entering our marvellous video competition

Marvellous Charity Ambassador Claudia Winkleman has teamed up with Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity to launch the Marvellous Costume Make. Here's Claudia to tell you more....

To enter the competition:

  1. Create a Roald Dahl character costume and film yourself demonstrating how to make it.  Keep videos under three minutes please.
  2. Upload your video to YouTube, Instagram or Vine
  3. Enter the competition via the Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity Facebook page or enter directly from Vine or Twitter using the hashtag #marvellouscostume.

We're hoping to gather lots of inspiration for everyone out there who is getting ready to raise money with the Dahlicious Dress Up Day in September.  

Our panel of Roald Dahl experts will judge the videos and pick winners in three categories:

  • Best costume
  • Most creative video
  • Most Wonkalicious creation

The winner in each category will win the Whipple-Scrumptious prize of a family ticket to the brand new musical of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at London's Theatre Royal Drury Lane, and a bundle of Roald Dahl goodies. 

You have until 10pm on Thursday 2 October to submit you entries. The winners will be announced on Friday 3 October.
