Halloween Costumes for Book Lovers

Halloween is a great holiday for book nerds as it gives us the chance to dress up as our favorite fictional characters.

Emily Elizabeth

Who doesn’t love Clifford the Big Red Dog’s enthusiastic owner, Emily Elizabeth?! The best thing about this costume: Most likely, you can find everything you need for it (black pencil skirt, pink sweater, knee socks) in your closet.

Nancy Drew & Joe Hardy 

This is a fun couple costume as everyone’s favorite teen detectives. Get the entire family involved by having the kids dress up as Harriet the Spy and Encyclopedia Brown.

Peter Pan

There are so many possibilities to dress up your entire family as the characters from Peter Pan: Captain Hook, Peter, Wendy, Tinker Bell, Smee, John, Michael, the crocodile, mermaids, etc. We especially like that this family got the dog involved as Nana!

Huckleberry Finn

This toddler Huck is adorable! This costume would also be relatively easy to gather up from things that you may already have at home: button-up shirt, overalls, straw hat and fabric patches.

Madeline

If you have a gaggle of girls, dress them as the girls from Madeline. Mom as Miss Clavel is a nice touch!
