As you know, our family is a bit book-obsessed. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that our family likes to dress up like characters from our favorite books and fairy tales! Last year, Molly was Cinderella and her Daddy was her, "Pwince Chawming." Don't you love her 'dwess'? (Monday, I will post a giveaway for one of the fabulous costumes from Little Dress Up Shop).
The boys and I were Harry Potter, Ron, and Hermione.
One year, after we read Peter Pan to the children, they decided we should all be the characters from Peter Pan. Daddy even turned our stroller into a pirate ship! We had Peter Pan, Captain Hook, The Tic-toc Croc, Wendy, and Tinkerbelle.
While I was looking for this year's ideas for our family's costumes, I came across 21 wonderful book-inspired costumes I wanted to share with you! I hope you find something that catches your imagination. Some of these are homemade costumes with directions, some are just pictures, and a few are for items to purchase.
