Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This weeks topic is a Top Ten Halloween/Creepy Freebie.
Book characters we’d love to dress up as for Halloween
1 Luna Lovegood From Harry Potter
by J K Rowling
She’s quirky and wise and a Ravenclaw.
I want to be her when I grow up.
2 Sally Owens from Practical Magic
by Alice Hoffman
She’s a witch who makes amazing things!
Actually, I’d be any of the Owens women.
It’s blasphemy to say but I didn’t like the book where as I LOVE the film. I have read the book and it inspired the film so it totally counts!
I just love their house and their wisdom.
3 Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
Well, it’s Hallowe’en and everything gets Zombied. But also, as kick arse as Elizabeth is she’s ten times more so in P&P&Z haha
Elegant dresses, great hair and fantastic weapons? Great fun!
Plus, y’know, Darcy.
4 Night from Star-Touched Stories
by Roshani Chokshi
This one would be hard to FULLY reproduce as she reflects the night sky as it happens, but I think it would be pretty amazing any way you painted it
5 Sally Lockhart from the Sally Lockhart Series
by Philip Pullman
Another take-no-prisoners sort of woman. She does some pretty amazing things and I’d love to channel her for a little while.
6 Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone
by Laini Taylor
Blue hair, dark grudgy clothes, knee-high heavy black boots and a necklace made of teeth… Who wouldn’t love this costume for halloween. Obviously a Hamsa symbol on each hand is essential.

7 Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games
by Suzanne Collins
I think if Halloweens worth doing, its worth doing right. Wigs, ruffles and makeup galore!
8 Coraline from Coraline
by Neil Gaiman
It seems I have a thing for Blue Hair… Obviously I wouldn’t get away with this now being an adult but I’m saving this idea for when Cas is older! She has the attitude to pull this off!

9 Teresa from Maze Runner
by James Dashner
As I’d already chosen Effie from The Hunger Games I thought I couldn’t really choose Katniss too so I went for Teresa from Maze Runner instead. Thomas is probably more recognisable but as costumes go, this wouldn’t be a difficult one!
10 The Sea Witch
by Sarah Henning
So I’ve only just started this book but I love the cover… I’d love to make it into a Halloween Costume wouldn’t you?
