20 Insanely Adorable Book Character Costumes

Book character costumes are always a win for Halloween. My kids love reading time, so over the years they have developed some major literary crushes on storybook characters. That gives me plenty of ideas to work with; the biggest problem is making a final decision!

Some book character costumes require a lot of DIY, but not all. I hope I can convince my daughter to be Ada Twist Scientist because she’s so dang curious and determined and cute!


Check out this list of book character costumes and see which one wins your heart, from classics like The Cat in the Hat, to the ever-popular Harry Potter. Every single one of them is so freaking cute you will have a hard time picking just one.
