Well, another Book Week is bearing down on us, with the official date for Book Week 2021 mere weeks away (for those who missed this memo, Book Week 2021 is penciled in for August 21 – August 27 this year).
One might think that with a year of planning 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.
Book Week 2021 Theme
