In the spirit of Halloween and all things books, I’ve gathered my top 10 Halloween costumes that are absolutely perfect for any hardcore bookworm. I hope these can give you some inspiration for your own literary inspired costume!
#10 Max and a Wild Thing from Maurice Sendak’s Where The Wild Things Are
#9 An Old Man and a C in honor of Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea
#8 Hermione Granger from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series (I couldn’t have this list without at least one HP costume!)
#7 Buttercup and Westley from William Goldman’s The Princess Bride
#6 Ms. Frizzle from Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen’s The Magic School Bus
#5 Marla and Tyler from Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club
#4 Dorian Gray (and his picture) from Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray
#3 Fly Guy from Tedd Arnold’s Fly Guy series
#2 (I lied. There’s another Harry Potter one, I had to!) Dobby from The Harry Potter series!
#1 Call me biased but — my dog Zola, as a handmaid from Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale!
