It's Halloween week, y'all! And what better way to celebrate than a favorite book...Or...Dressing up like your favorite book?
Check out these awesome kid lit costumes, (and these) and let us know - have you ever dressed up like a literary legend? Or any kids you know?
Mine are:Dorothy, The Wizard of OzSnow White, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (okay, it was the Disney version, but I'm counting it)And, as a bonus, I have friends who dressed up as Hermione and Fluffy from Harry Potter
When, in first grade, the Halloween party required dressing up as a character in a book, my son, who doesn't like to dress up went as Harold, from Captain Underpants.
Mine is Pippi Longstocking
Found another great article with some book-inspired costumes - these are all made from hoodies, making them super comfy!
@Sigrid - very cool! My brother was a fan of Captain Underpants as a kid, and I always found them pretty funny myself. Did he have the super fluffy hair?
@BookBroad - To this day I have still not read Pippi, sadly enough, but I love her look! Must have been fun to put together.
@Adrielle @Neil_Baptista, either of you know kids who went bookish for Halloween?
We're reading reading this Pippi book right now.
My daughter is acting very nonchalant about Halloween at the moment. She's just got some cat ears.
Hey guys! the Riffle twitter shared a huge list of bookish costumes, and though not all are kid lit, I thought I'd share :)
Some of my favs from this list:
Harold and the Purple Crayon
I saw this Tintin online a while ago and thought it was just the cutest!
I dressed up as Nancy Drew the night before Halloween and Walt Whitman on Halloween! Everyone thought I was Charles Darwin or a prospector...
Just resurrecting this conversation to share our family’s efforts this year!
We’re The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe! Anyone else rocking a literary outfit for 2017?
