can you not put him in a white top and trousers and buy the wings seperatly. i think it would work out alot cheaper and you can buy the wings in alot of places online and on the high street

when i was an angel at school, i think my mum made it out of a big white sheet and cut a hole in it for my head. for the wings she cut them out of cardboard and sprayed them gold.

I think the white top and trousers sounds good ...what about some 3/4 white tracky bottoms or similar ...the wings you can pick up or make as someone already suggested then trim it off with a bit of gold tinsel here and there....you have my sympathy last week i had to turn ds into a roman centurion with only 48hrs notice:eek:

as you have said looking for a cheap costume, you could try a charity shop for a large white sheet or one of the discount linen shops.

We had to do boy angels last year. I bought a white robe from one of the party type shops - it was actually part of an arab sheikh costume . That was 6, plastic wings about 2 from Ebay and tinsel sash and halo

You could have had mine but it won't be be big enough for a 10 yr old - my DS was only 5

They have such costumes in Sainsburys - not sure how much.
They have Angels and Stars and lots of others.

Hi, Last year my DS (8) was an angel & he wasn't impressed! So I bought a V cheap judo outfit off ebay he loved it & so did the school!! I think it was only about 4 including postage.
