top ten bookish costume ideas
posted by soe 1:21 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday post from That Artsy Reader Girl is Halloween-themed, so I thought I’d share some suggestions for Halloween costumes you could do based on literary characters. I have only used some of them personally:

  1. Pippi Longstocking:

  2. Phryne Fisher (the tv show demonstrates how many amazing outfits you could pick from)
  3. Raggedy Ann:

    Halloween 2017
  4. Sherlock Holmes (it helps if you own a deerstalker hat)
  5. Anne of Green Gables (I’ve noticed puffed sleeves are in right now)
  6. Anyone from Harry Potter:

    A Tonksish Night
  7. Any of the ragtag group from the Oz books (if you pick the literary version of Dorothy, your shoes will not be red and fewer people will recognize you; conversely, you could go as the tornado, although I would make it a two funnel-tornado in order to be able to walk)
  8. Go classic with Count Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, or Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (for the latter, you would need to divide your costume down the middle)
  9. Little Red Riding Hood:

    Little Red Riding Hood
  10. Paddington

Have you ever dressed up as a favorite bookish character?
