1. Edgar Allen Poe
This costume is quick and easy for any guy to put together! All you really need is a suit...a moustache...and a raven to sit upon your shoulder! I really like the "Nevermore" quote bubble coming out of the raven's mouth too. It gives it that extra special touch!
I have yet to meet a person who did not love either reading the Arthur books or watching the tv show when they were a kid. I was personally obsessed with it! Grab a yellow cardigan, a white dress shirt, a pair of glasses, and make a headband with ears and you are all set to go!
Am I the only one who remembers this hit series from back in the 90s? I loved the Animorphs' covers and how they showed each character morphing into a different animal or creature. I suppose this costume only makes sense with a group...and you would have to walk around in a line all night....but I just thought it was too creative to pass up sharing!
4. Emily Elizabeth
I could not get enough of Clifford the Big Red Dog growing up...and he continues to remain a hit with younger generations today. I'm in love with this costume for so many reasons....it's cute...it's simple...and the added touch of Clifford's big red leg just pulls it all together!
5. Katniss Everdeen
With the movie set to be released next year, I'm sure the amount of people dressing up as Katniss will triple in future Halloweens to come. I bet that Katniss character costumes will soon become as popular as kids dressing up like wizards from Harry Potter!
6. Sylvia Plath
The first thing that Sylvia Plath is most well known for is her novel The Bell Jar. The second thing most people know about Sylvia Plath is the circumstances of her tragic death. Plath died after placing her head in an oven with the gas turned on. While this costume is somewhat morbid... I have to say that it is definitely creative!
7. Mary Poppins
This is my dream costume! I love Mary Poppins! Little known fact...it was a book before Disney made it into a movie! If it wasn't for the fact that Halloween is only a week away I would be hunting down a seamstress right now to put this outfit together for me! I would be singing the songs from the movie all night long..."Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down!"
What are some of your costume plans for this halloween? Are there any other literary characters that you would love dressing up as?
