Blame the LARPer in me, but I am a huge Halloween nerd. Usually I manage to stretch the day out to a week and average 2-3 costumes per year. This year I have two of my costumes set (Boo Berry and Duela Dent) but I’ve also stumbled upon some great literary costumes and thought that I would share them with you.
Nothing screams also parent like dressing your child up like a literary figure! Barnes n Nobles recently suggested 16 different book inspired costumes. Some, I’ll admit were a bit of a stretch but others were so cute. My favorites:
I won’t lie. Most of my teenage Halloween costumes involved the dead genre, dead zombies, dead prom queen, dead….well you get the point. Never, did I even think to emulate some of my favorite literary characters. But teens of today, need not fear, foreveryoungadult has come up with a great list of costume ideas! I might even steal a few of the ideas myself!
There are some amazing literary costumes! Agh! I can’t wait to stretch my Halloween out to incorporate them especially, a Slaughter House Five outfit! Writer’s Digest also came up with an amazing list. (The Lord of the Flies pun, Animal Farm outfit and Lady MacBeth, might just be my favorites).
Do you have any ideas? Have you ever dressed up like a literary character for Halloween?
