Book-inspired Halloween costumes are so hot right now

October 24, 2017 | by

This may be the only time I ever say this… PUT THE BOOK DOWN. It’s October 24th, do you know what your Halloween costume is? Maybe you’re like me and leave it until the very last minute. If you don’t have an idea yet, how about dressing up as one of your favourite characters from a book? With a little creativity, you can easily put together a costume from items you have around the house.

Here are some awesome book-based costume ideas to inspire you.

One costume trend that will never go away is dressing up as your favourite superhero. Thankfully, there’s plenty of inspiration to be found!


Or you can go with your childhood favourite character.

Here’s Vanessa and Link as the Paper Bag Princess and the Dragon!


And of course, we can’t forget our furry friends! Cooper (left) was inspired by author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Theo (right) is here as Cedric DOGgory, and Koda (bottom) as Wonder Koda.


Happy costuming and have a great Halloween!
