Well, another Book Week is bearing down on us, with the official date for Book Week 2020 having been pushed to October 17 – October 23.

One might think that with all that extra time up our sleeves we’d be brimming with ideas and that we’d already be knee deep in costume prep… but, alas, for many of us… not so much.

Well, whether you’re a DIY extraordinaire, want to buy a costume off the rack or online, or just need something simple you can fashion with a bit of brown paper and some string on the night before, we’ve got you covered with over 20 ideas for book week costume inspiration.

⚡️Harry Potter⚡️ Book week is next week for Reed so we have been making sure we have every single detail of his costume is ready for his parade. We are both massive Harry Potter fans so it was a no brainer that this is who Reed wanted to dress up as. We watch the movies back to back to back and I can’t wait for Reed to be able to read the books next year when his reading is more developed. @bigwaustralia had all the necessary costume needs to deal Reed out in true Potter style complete with his Nimbus 2000. What book character are your kids dressing up as for Book Week? • • • • • • • • #bookweek #bookweek2019 #harrypotter #harrypotterfans #potterheads #bigw #bigwaustralia #perthkids #perthmums #mumsofperth #kidsofperth #perthevents #perthisokay #icwest #pottermore #harrypottercostume #dressupdaily #magicofchildhood #enchantedchildhood #kidsforreal #stopanddropmom #perthschools #bestofmom #discoverunder30k #discoverunder50k #potterverse #bookstagram #booksofinsta #bigwbooks #booksof2019
