BookCon is known for bringing readers and authors together, but we also consider it to be the literary fashion event of the year. Bookworms from across the country show up in their best outfits and cosplays, knowing that even while standing in line you can still look and feel fabulous. From bookish dresses to magical ensembles, here are 20 of our favorite looks from BookCon 2018.
Why be Daenerys when you could be Drogon? We loved Alexa’s fierce Be A Dragon sweater.
Cait channeled Belle, everyone’s favorite Disney bookworm.
Booktuber Ashley is black and white and well-read all over.
Perhaps believing we were muggles, this reader claimed to be Clay—but we know they’re really Newt Scamander and Pickett.
Book buddies Brie and Gwen came dressed to impress.
Running into this crew made us feel as though we had stepped into a Sarah J. Maas novel. Nikki C. is a fierce Manon Blackbeak, Brittany makes the perfect violet-eyed Rhysand, Nikki A. is darling as Feyre, and Carlee is their fabulous feline companion.
We couldn’t get enough of Kyra’s bold and bright ensemble.
Here’s a snapshot of Anna, in a bewitching look, using Alohomora to unlock BookCon’s many delights.
Savannah and Lacey prove that you can never go wrong with a little black dress (or a pineapple purse!).
A moment after snapping this photo we tried and failed to distract Fiona with a book so we could steal her fabulous floral blazer.
Joanne’s Androma cosplay was the best in the galaxy.
Want to look your bookish best all year long? We think you can’t go wrong with our rainbow bookstack shirt.
