Book Inspired Halloween Costumes

Book Inspired Halloween Costumes

Some schools don't allow Halloween dress up days at all, and others require them to be somehow tied to books. We wanted to help take the stress out of finding a book inspired costume by rounding up some fun options. Of course, these don't just have to be for a school option, your child can wear them trick-or-treating as well! They will for sure look adorable in any of the ideas below. Click the heading of any of the costumes you would like to be linked to directly.  


"The Very Hungry Caterpillar"




"Ada Twist, Scientist" 

For this costume you could even add some safety goggles for a fun accessory.



"The Cat in the Hat" 




"Pete the Cat"




"If You Give a Mouse a Cookie"

Pairing this costume with some denim overalls would be super cute and match the book even better!




"The Day the Crayons Quit" 

 This costume comes in a variety of different colors!



"Giraffes Can't Dance" 




"Clifford the Big Red Dog" 




"Where the Wild Things Are"




"The Grouchy Ladybug"






"Elephant and Piggie" Books 

There are multiple books in this series to choose from and kids think they are so funny! This would be a cute theme for siblings, one child could be Piggie and one could be Gerald (the elephant).





"Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type"
