Party Prep: Costumes for the Book Lover

Last week I asked you all “If you could dress up as a book character for Halloween, who would you pick?”

There were some GREAT answers, so I thought I’d share some costume ideas for all you book lovers out there!

Rachel @ Rachel Reads: Lyra from His Dark Materials

Of course, this costume isn’t complete without Lyra’s Alethiometer… made from a gold compact!

What makes this outfit complete

Stormy @ Book. Blog. Bake.: Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter

But no Luna Lovegood costume would be complete without some CRAZY additions! Check out this jewelry my cousin makes; I bet Luna would love it! Dozidotes

Heidi @ Bunbury In The Stacks: Cinder from The Lumetere Chronicles

Tee @ YA Crush: Kate Weatherall from The Mysterious Benedict Society

Kristina @ Gone Pecan: Daenerys Targarean from Game of Thrones

Just carry these around with you all night. And if you’re daring, make yourself sooty and go naked*.

*don’t go naked

Brittany @ The Book Addict’s Guide: Alina from Shadow and Bone

Of course, if you don’t have any old antlers hanging around, this awesome necklace from Hebel Design would be a GREAT substitute!

Sandi @ Teen Lit Rocks: Hermione from Harry Potter

Love all of these costume ideas! After researching them and coming up with ideas for them I may want to change my costume for my party! Thanks for help friends!

Do you have any book characters you’re planning on dressing up as? Let me know!

    1. Yeah, I’m totally digging Lyra’s coat. I think it would make a perfect Candice coat too 🙂

      Cinder was fun to put together! I wasn’t sure about it at first, but then saw the skeleton tights and knew I HAD to do that!


Comments make me happy, as do you!
