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 die.  It looks fairly simple to make too, at least compared to some other costumes.

Voldemort is kind of creepy, but I bet this costume would get a lot of love from Potter fans.

Seashells are unnecessary when the rest of your costume is this adorable.

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.

    1. Totally! The easier, the better, in my opinion anyway.

  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.

    1. Thanks! I had so much fun pulling these together. :)
