Impress your schoolmates with our amazing range of Book Week costumes for girls!

It’s Book Week once again! In 2023, Book Week will be held from August 20-26, and this year’s theme will be ‘Dreaming with eyes open…’ With inspiring art by the spectacular Jasmine Seymour, this year's theme is about celebrating our nation’s Indigenous history and culture.

We’re strong believers in the power of imagination, and seeing young girls engrossed in books is always a wonderful sight. So it’s our honour to provide high-quality and affordable costumes for your Book Week dress-ups.

Between our range of costumes and accessories and your imagination, there’s no limit to the characters you can bring to life. So bring us your best book character costume ideas! And if you’re in a rush and need last-minute Book Week costumes, we’ve got a few ideas for a cool costume that’ll impress your little girl’s friends (and might even win some Book Week parade awards). 

Let’s take a look!

Classic Book Character Costumes for Girls

If you’re looking for easy Book Week costumes, why not start with the classics! Every child knows their fairy tales, and there’s a reason the heroes and villains of those stories have captured the imaginations of so many generations. So let’s see if we can find a classic costume for you.

  • Classic book costumes are easily recognised and super fun to dress up as! Our girls’ Mad Hatter costume is a wild one and goes well with our Alice in Wonderland dress! If you’re after a villain, no one dresses better than Cruella De Ville!
  • Dr Seuss costumes bring whimsy wherever they go! Thing 1 and Thing 2 are great Dr Seuss characters for siblings.
  • Roald Dahl costumes never fail. As one of the great writers of children’s literature, everyone will recognise The Giant Peach or one of the Witches! The only question is, who will be lucky enough to find (or be) the Golden Ticket?

Popular Book Week costumes for girls

Plenty of kids are first introduced to literary characters through film and television. It’s perfectly natural — anything that exercises the mind is a good thing in our book. So, while you’re planning your kids’ book week costumes, don’t discourage them from wanting to dress up like characters they love from books, comics and films (that are adapted from books).

  • Disney costumes are always a hit! Why not dazzle everyone at the Book Week ball as Cinderella, or celebrate a tale as old as time in our stunning Belle costume?
  • Superhero costumes empower girls with a bit of pop culture! Wonder Woman, Violet from The Incredibles, Supergirl and even Catwoman are popular superhero girls’ costumes.
