Book Characters of Halloween Past

Book Characters of Halloween Past

My love for Book Character Halloween costumes can be directly linked to my own childhood. Yes, this is a classic case of “reliving my childhood through my children”. See, when I was a kid, we didn’t celebrate Halloween. In fact, the first time I ever went trick or treating was with my first son when he was one years old. In my childhood, there was no costumes or traipsing through the neighborhood on a candy quest. Instead, we went to bed early with the lights off and we did not answer the door.

Which means, I’ve spent Halloweens as a Mom squeezing as many book related Halloween costumes in our lives as possible. I can’t help it! My kids indulge me (even if that means they get two costumes – the one I want and the one they want). And I’ve marked off quite a few off on my personal list of book characters. There are a few characters I am still wanting to do, but that will happen!

I thought it would be fun to share the Book Character costumes of our past. Maybe you need some last minute inspiration! Maybe not, but join me on this literary tour!
