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.

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, it will work.

Doll Costume

The doll you see here is the most common outfit for Junie. With a little effort you can recreate this look, though it will require that you sew buttons onto the sweater.

Start off with the hair bow, something that Junie is almost never without. This hair bow is yellow with polka dots. There is no bow that looks exactly like this one, so choose the yellow bow you like best.

The cardigan sweater is a fuchsia pink with yellow stars on it. This is where you need to do a little work. Find a sweater, then replace the buttons  with star buttons.

The skirt is a ruffled purple skirt. I found several that would look great with this costume.

Last, Junie is wearing purple and orange striped tights. There aren’t any tights with this color combination, but there are striped tights that will work. For example, you could choose either purple and black stripes.

“Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus” Costume

This is a look seen on Junie on several of Junie’s book covers, making this one of the most popular looks for a Junie B. Jones costume. The outfit is comprised of a large hair bow, a pink sweater, and a purple skirt.

As is seen so very often on the covers of the Junie books, Junie is wearing a large bow in her hair. This particular bow is a pretty pink bow.

The pink sweater worn by Junie is a long-sleeved cardigan sweater that buttons up in the front. I have done my best to filter out the sweaters that do not match this criteria in Amazon, though a few may have slipped into the results. But almost any of the sweaters you see when you click the link below will work for Junie’s school girl look.

Junie’s skirt is a dark purple one that goes to about her knees. There are a nice variety of purple skirts that would be perfect for this costume. Some are plain, others are a bit fancier, but they all have a Junie vibe to them.

“Junie B. Jones is a Party Animal” Costume

The cover for this book 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’s  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.

Don’t forget a purple feather boa. Even though the boa is purple, it does not need to match the color of the pajamas. In fact, Junie rarely matches, so use whatever you like.

What better shoes are there than bunny slippers when it comes to a pajama costume? None! Take a look at the many different rabbit slippers you can add to your Junie costume.

“Junie B. Jones and That Meanie Jim’s Birthday” Costume

This is the easiest of Junie’s outfits to replicate because she isn’t wearing anything too wild or crazy. She has her signature hair bow, this time in green. Junie’s bow has small green polka dots, but a plain green bow will be okay.

She is wearing a white shirt with long sleeves. We can’t actually see the front of the shirt, so it might be a pullover or it might have buttons. To me, it looks like a turtleneck, so that’s what I’ve chosen for this costume.

The main article of clothing is a pair of purple overalls. The only purple overalls that I found are snow overalls. You can see them, but I’ve also included pink overalls in case you want something a bit less insulated (i.e. cooler).

Did you notice that this outfit seems to match?. Granted, the green bow doesn’t really go with the purple overalls, but all things considered, this is the Junie B. Jones outfit that clashes the least.

This is a really cute movie made by someone for a class project. It is a trailer for a movie that the make may or may not have completed (he/she doesn’t say if this is the entire video made or just a teaser for a complete story). Regardless, the maker did a great job!
