If you're still stuck for inspiration for a Book Week costume - and time is a-tickin' - then have a look at what the experts - staff at the National Library of Australia - went with.
Although, we're guessing not too many kiddies will be doing the parade dressed as a handmaid from the dystopian nightmare The Handmaid's Tale, but you never know.
Strutting their stuff outside the National Library this week were (l-r) Candice Cappe as a very aware hare from Ruby Red Shoes, Vanessa Nuessler as Tauriel, from The Hobbit and Emily Witt as a handmaid from The Handmaid's Tale,.
Ros Hirst went with Fox Mulder from The X-Files, Eleanor Goodwin as Ruffnut from How to Train Your Dragon and Marion Kruger as Dana Scully from The X-Files,.
Brooke Kelly went as as Harry Potter and Jess Drake as Hermoine and Kristen Gidney as Albus Dumbledore, all from the Harry Potter books.
And can you spot Jenny Stephens from the Where's Wally? books. (Check her out near the top of the library steps.)
