I quite enjoy dressing up for programs, so when we came up with the idea for a Charlie and the Chocolate Factoryevent I knew I had to do something big. This costume is partly inspired by the description of Willy Wonka in the book and partly by the costume worn by Gene Wilder in the classic film. The costume was a hit with the young participants.
Interestingly, the only part of this costume purchased specifically for this event was the purple blazer. Those green pants are a regular part of my wardrobe.
