Has anyone ever dressed up as a librarian?? (sexy or otherwise) and might have any pictures?
I'm having an awful time finding any sort of pictures to base an outfit off of, and my lack of imagination has left me totally stuck on how to make myself look like a convincing librarian.    Tongue

Well, me being a librarian.....lol....
I would say I would do a pencil skirt, blouse, and black pumps.
Carry around a book, and have your hair in a bun, and wear glasses.
....that's me every couple of days at my work.....

Thanks!  That's pretty much what I had in mind.. I'm just terrible when it comes to matching/picking clothes that look well together.  I'm the girl who goes to work in jeans and a button up if im feeling girly.  Grin

I went as a teacher for a costume party.

I had a pencil in my bun and carried a ruler.
I think a librarian would be pretty similar. Just replace the ruler with books and maybe wear a cardigan and reading glasses on a chain around your neck. Hope that helps a little  Smiley

I went as a very dowdy librarian one year - no pics sorry. But I wore a white button up shirt with flower embroidery (think old lady). a calf-length plaid skirt with pleats in purple orange, pink, and blue, and an orange button up sweater. I baby powdered my hair to give it that nice white look after I threw it up in a bun. I wore my tortise shell framed glasses on the end of my nose and got one of those glasses keeper strands that's beaded and hooks onto the end of your frames' stems. The best part about my costume was my boobs. I took a double DD bra and stuffed it with some of my t-shirts. I had HUGE saggy knockers! I also wore thigh-high pantyhose rolled all the way down under my knees and brown leather clogs.

It was a huge hit at school and work, although the boobs got in the way when I was trying to take orders and make Blizzards at the local DQ.

Hope this helps!
