25 Kids in Awesome Literary Costumes

I don’t know about you, but every year on Halloween, my favorite costumes seem to fall into two categories: literary costumes, and whatever costumes little kids are wearing (because awwww). So show me a kid wearing a literary costume and I’ll be the happiest girl on earth. Here you’ll find, 25 kids who are rocking bookish costumes, from Edgar Allan Poe to Tintin to, er, Christian Grey. Full disclosure: some of these were originally worn for the UK’s World Book Day, which is something America should really start observing in earnest. Still, you can totally copy them for your kids this Halloween.
