These easy DIY World Book Day and Book Week costumes for teachers and other adults can be put together quickly (even at the last minute) to celebrate with literary style that kids will love. (You can also wear them for Halloween!)

I curated all of these book character costumes myself, focusing on teacher dress up ideas for literary characters that are popular and that you are most likely to teach in the classroom.

These book costumes are mostly female characters, along with a few that I believe can be worn by a male or female. I also focused on Book Week dress-up ideas for teachers that are more modest in appearance since they are generally meant for an adult to wear around children.

Most of these book week teacher costume ideas are from Amazon so you can quickly and easily shop them, but I also linked to some of my easy DIY ideas in case you prefer to create these outfits yourself.
