Looking for a Junie B. Jones Costume? Although there isn’t an official costume, take a look at what I’ve gathered together to make your own. It’s easier than you might think.
Don’t know who Junie B. Jones is? If you have a young girl in your home, I’ll bet she does! Junie is a precocious girl who stars in the Junie B. Jones book series by Barbara Park. Junie’s real name is June Beatrice Jones. Her birthday is June 1st and she is 5 years old when the series begins. She lives with her parents, Robert “Bob” Jones and Susan Jones, and her little brother, Ollie. Junie also owns a beloved pet named Tickle.

Junie has a couple of rivals in the series. In kindergarten, Junie’s biggest rival is a boy named Jim, who teases her. May, a girl that sits next to Junie in first grade, is Junie’s rival in first grade. They get in trouble all the time because they argue constantly.
As with most girls her age, Junie likes animals; however, there are a few that she doesn’t like. Her grandma, Helen Miller, has a bird named Twitter that she doesn’t like. Additionally, Junie doesn’t like roosters, ponies and clowns.
Although there is no official costume for Junie, you are in luck because there are a lot of ways you can dress. I have listed several options for you, all based on how Junie looks on various book covers. What makes this even easier for you is the fact that Junie is not a fashion plate. You can put together an outfit, and as long as you have certain Junie elements, such as her hair bow or glasses, it will work.
Junie’s School Girl Outfit
This is a look seen on Junie on several book covers, including Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus and Junie B. Jones and Her Big Fat Mouth. The outfit is comprised of a purple skirt, a pink sweater, and a large hairbow.
Junie’s Pajama Costume
The cover for Junie B. Jones Is a Party Animal shows Junie jumping up and down on her bed. Junie is shown wearing purple pajamas with purple hearts.
I did not find an exact replica of Junie’s pajamas. However, I did find several that are close enough that they will work nicely for any girl who wants to dress up in a Junie B. Jones jammie costume.
You will notice that the picture of Junie also shows her wearing a blue bow. That is going to be the most important part of your costume. Make sure that you include a large blue bow. You can even include a purple feather boa.
When Junie entered the first grade her looks changed slightly. No longer did Junie wear her signature hair bows.
Instead, the hair bows were replaced with glasses. Junie’s glasses are full framed and purple.
Do you get the sense that Junie’s favorite color is, perhaps, purple?
