And the world record attempt appeal appears to have spread far beyond Yarmouth. Town centre manager Jonathan Newman said costumes had been sent as far afield as Northern Ireland, Wales and Newcastle.
The attempt is the brainchild of independent bookseller Martin Blackwell from Books Inside in Market Gates shopping centre.
Mr Newman said he was not too concerned about the relatively low figure registering to take part so far.
“We have only just had posters printed. We are just going round the town centre putting the posters up. We have a month to keep pushing the world record attempt and there is a Facebook site where people can register,” he added.
