Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Characters Who I Would Totally Want To Be For Halloween

October 28, 2014 Uncategorized 19

Top Ten Tuesday is sponsored by The Broke and The Bookish.  This should be a fun week.  I’m going to post a picture of the book and what I think the character would look like or did look like in a movie/tv show if available.

1.  Clary from The Mortal Instruments Series

My hair is more the color of the movie star, minus the very heavy eyebrows. But I’d want more the book cover color of hair, I love that red!

2.  Katniss  from The Hunger Games



Especially that awesome girl on fire dress!! 3.  America from The Selection series, in either the blue dress on the cover of the first book, or her wedding dress on the 3rd book cover.


Maybe not practical for a Halloween costume, but so beautiful! 4.  Alyssa from Splintered

I've included an outfit posted by the author on her Pinterest page for the character.
5.  Katerina from the Katerina series by Robin Bridges

I love the fancy dress on the 2nd book, but the outfit on the first book, while kind of vague looking in the picture, does have a hat which helps show that she is from Russia.

6.  Bella from Twilight
-->
I loved the dress that she wore to her birthday party in the New Moon movie.  And they sold it at Hot Topic that year!  So I did actually wear that one year, although not for Halloween, for a wedding I think.  🙂
7.  Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice
-->
First, because who doesn't want their own Mr. Darcy?  Although he is kind of an ass.  But the dresses would be fun to wear!  For a costume that is.
8.  Scarlett O'Hara from Gone With the Wind
-->
 So hard to pick just one, as they were all so beautiful!  But I'll go with this one.
9.  Buffy the Vampire Slayer
-->
Technically the movie and tv series came before any books, but that's okay, there are a ton of books for the show now.  And I'd go with her red leather pants and black top.  Well, if I wouldn't look like someone had stuffed two sausages into some pants.  10.  Sookie Stackhouse from Dead Until Dark or True Blood TV series

I completely forgot that I had this t-shirt from when I visited the HBO store in NYC my very first time I visited my sister there.  Hmm.  Now I just have to find the apron, and figure out what kind of shorts to wear.  And what to do about blond hair?  A wig?  Make a quick appointment with my hair dresser? 

If the Sookie outfit doesn’t work, I’ll go back to my Star Trek uniform for my costume this Friday night.  So, what about you, what characters would you, or are you maybe going to dress up like for Halloween this year, or maybe you have in the past?

    Great list! I would also love to dress like America… who wouldn't want to wear that beautiful gown for a night? I did my Home on books to read to get into the Halloween spirit. Happy Halloween!

    Awesome list! I bought the first two books in the Katerina series because they sounded really good (and the covers are gorgeous). I can't wait to read them. I figured winter would be a perfect time for them. I'm probably going to go as Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone since I have a blue wig. I can just draw hamsas on my hands. Happy Halloween! Thanks for stopping by!

      They were both pretty good, as well as the third one. It is probably a great idea to read them in the winter with the location of the stories. I hope you took pictures of yourself in your costume, I'll bet it was cool! Thanks for returning the stop.

    Great ideas! I love that you included pictures of what they actually wear instead of just the book cover. I do love the dress from the Twilight series and I'd love to be Elizabeth Bennett.

    Y'know, it's funny, I picked Katniss too, but I didn't even remember her Girl on Fire dress, which would make an awesome Halloween costume! Great choice! 🙂 And thanks for stopping by my blog!
