What Should I Wear on Book Character Day?!?! – Part 1

All over the country many schools will soon be celebrating Book Character Day or even Book Character Week!!!! Our moderator, Nikolette Crouch Bennett, is ALL about it, but dressing up is not really my thing! I’ve compiled this list to help simplify your life and get some costume ideas!!! If you grab something {or have ideas} comment below!


A total classic outfit that is instantly recognizable and very easy to pull together! Wear whatever clothing you like with these accessories and face paint!! A very affordable costume!

Socks and Fingerless Gloves
Face & Body Crayons
A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon {Book}


The Harry Potter series is my absolute favorite, but robes can be pricey! A few years ago I grabbed a few Quidditch shirts and they are my go-to “costumes” for Book Character day!! And if you go with a house other than Gryffindor the headbands are much more affordable! This year I’m going with Hufflepuff!

Wand/Glasses/Tie Accessory Set

Gryffindor Lanyard


Quidditch Shirt


I had SO much fun with this costume idea! There are many books in this series!! Your entire team could each represent a different book! {I am SURE that some genius teacher crew has already thought of this!}
