Great Book, Bad Costume: Pose with your favourite book or the one you’re reading now. Then make a costume for one of the characters using only stuff you can find around the house!

This week I read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. Yes, it’s a bit of a nostalgic read, but it’s really great to meet these characters again. I also forgot how much fun the story is and how different it is from the movies. Maybe I’ll re-watch those later this week too. Anyway, the book is Oshawa Public Libraries Pass the Book selection this year, that’s why I thought it would be the perfect time to read it and now I have a great idea for my costume for this challenge! Do you know who I am?

Yes, I did use Photoshop to make my face purple, but the rest is just my costume! I used an old housecoat, some pillows, a blanket, maybe even a stuffed animal or two. I could barely move, but man was it fun to dress up like a character from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!
I can’t wait to see how you dress up for this challenge!!!
