Top Ten Tuesday: Halloween Freebie – Characters We’d Love to Dress Up As


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.

We’ve chosen:

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!

Sea Witch

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?
