Dylan the Villain
Halloween is fast approaching and with it, parents in desperate need of a last-minute costume based on a book character. If your town is like mine, the schools celebrate some sort of book based, non-Halloween, dress up bonanza. This means that parents will buy their kids a Halloween costume and then panic when Trixten and Paxler tell them they can’t wear it to school. I have created four school friendly costumes that parents can put together pretty easily. The first is Dylan the Villain, I will post a new character every day for the rest of this week.
Dylan the Villain was first published in 2016, it is an under-rated, fun and mischievous book. I chose this as one of my DIY dress up books, for a couple of reasons. First, we love Dylan the Villain. The story is about a highly competitive, robot building, super villain in training. What’s not to love? Second, Dylan the Villain, is a title character, which helps with recognition. Lastly, even if you have never read Dylan the Villain, you would still recognize the costume as a super-villain (or maybe hero) without having to ask.
Most parents will be able to assemble this costume with items they already own, a trip to the store and very minimal craftiness.
