Librarian Costume

Kids today may have no clue about the Dewey Decimal System and be completely perplexed by the idea of an encyclopedia (isn’t that what Google is for?) — but that doesn’t mean the classic librarian costume has gone out of style.

Double Bonus: You can easily go from librarian to substitute teacher by adding a “Kick Me” sign to the back of your shirt and a paper airplane in your hair.

Librarian costume

  • Conservative pencil skirt
  • Cardigan sweater — buttoned all the way up!
  • Fake glasses (like these): Keep the glasses on a chain and wear low on the bridge of your nose.
  • Wear your hair in a bun and put a pencil behind your ear. Carry around a stack of books.
