Top Ten Book Characters Who I Would Totally Want (My Daughter) To Be For Halloween

I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's prompt is:

Top Ten Book Characters Who I Would Totally Want (My Daughter) To Be For Halloween

So, the original prompt was to tell which characters you would dress up as yourself.  I have nothing against dressing up for Halloween, but pint-sized costumes are just so much cuter.  Wouldn't you agree?  So I did this week's list with my almost two-year-old in mind.  (Though these would all work with adults as well.)

Mary Poppins costume
Hello, gorgeous dress that I would probably dress my daughter in just to go to the grocery store.

I actually considered Olivia when choosing a costume for my daughter.  I didn't go with it, largely because I couldn't totally imagine it.  Seeing this makes me wish I had checked Pinterest first.

Kids & Living History..... YES!  :)
Because that is just hilarious.

Don't have a Halloween costume yet, but like the idea of dressing up?  Here's a great chart to help you figure it out, bookish style:

  1. Cute! A couple of those would be fairly easy to put together.

  2. Crazy coincidence. That picture of Madeline was actually taken by one of my best friends Erica- that's her daughter Annika. She put it online and it went viral- it's now all over pinterest. So funny to see it on here... world colliding!!! Love it.

    1. Ha! I love it when worlds collide. It really is a great costume, props to your friend.

  3. Hahaha, these are so cute! I especially love kiddy Frodo and kiddy Dobby. That Queen of Hearts looks awesome too. And I love the chart at the bottom of your post. That's brilliant.
