I’ll be honest, I’m normally not a huge follower of blogs. I have my own tumblr that I update for myself and that’s about it. Everyone once in a while I might stumble upon a cool post on a cool blog and I’ll admire it for a minute then never look at that blog again. However, about a year ago I came across a unique blog with a very interesting concept.
“textbook.tumblr.com” is (in their own words) …
“Ever read a book and formed a perfect image of the character in your head? So have I, and that’s why I started this blog. Whenever I read something I have a precise portrait of the characters in my head, every detail. It’s no secret that there are major parallels between fashion, literature, history and music but the connection lives in so many different ways. On Textbook, I aim to show it by styling some crazy editorials for your favorite heroes and heroines.”
If anyone knows me, they know how big of a geek I am when it comes to classic characters and famous books & movies. In fact, I’m currently reading the Wizard of Oz series (a whopping 17 books in total) and I’m addicted to superhero movies. So when I found a blog that posts about what Hermione Granger would wear if she was a high fashion witch in our time, I was hooked. Here’s a look at some of my favorite characters and their looks, courtesy of TEXTBOOK.
Alice, Alice in Wonderland
The Godess Athena, Greek Mythology
Bellatrix Lestrange, Harry Potter series
Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird
Odette, Swan Lake
Willy Wonka, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory
Cruella DeVille, 101 Dalmations
