Character Dress-Up

 

Warning! Escaped characters!


Once Upon a time (Thursday, March 6th to be precise), chaos erupted in the land of Scoil Thomáis when the castle of Princess Geraldine was stampeded by famous characters from books and stories. Princess Geraldine reported that the characters seemed to be multiplying before her very eyes. Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, Babe the Pig, the Mad Hatter, the Wolf, Rowley, Nikki, Katniss and many others tried to lure Geraldine deep into the pages of their books. In the end she was rescued by a handsome prince called Eamon. Prince Eamon reported that he was happy to rescue the fair and beautiful princess but that he had actually been searching for a pesky goblin called Wally. If you should find Wally, Prince Eamon will reward you…err…handsomely!
