Authors Dress Up For ’26 Characters’ Photography Exhibit

Neil-Gaiman-as-BadgerThe Storytelling Museum, an institution based in the U.K., will host an exhibit called “26 Characters: celebrating childhood story heroes.” This art show features photographs of writers dressed as their favorite childhood literary character.

This exhibition will be on view from April 5th to November 2nd. Photogapher Cambridge Jones captured the pictures of these authors. Some of the authors who took part include Malorie Blackman, Terry Pratchett, and Neil Gaiman.

According to the museum’s official website, Blackman transformed herself into the Wicked Witch of the West and Pratchett sat for his portrait as William Brown from Just William. Gaiman (pictured, via) revealed in a blog post that he drew inspiration from Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind In The Willows and chose to wear a Badger costume.
