Literary Halloween Costumes

Guest Post by Sydnie Long!

This one’s for all you literary lovers, you bookish believers, you rambunctious readers!

If you’re still trying to decide on what your Halloween costume will be this year, turn to your favorite book characters for inspiration. The great thing about books is their timelessness, and the characters that live and breathe the stories within those pages can be oh so memorable. Regardless if that character has only graced the pages of their book or if they’ve experienced the big screen, let your imagination, your interpretation of that character, run wild with how to put together their costume.

From the most classic characters to some recent additions, you’d have a wide range of characters to choose from. But this list can help you narrow down your choices.
