Top Ten Tuesday | Characters I’d Like To Dress Up As For Halloween

toptentuesdayIt’s yet another Tuesday, so that means another Top Ten Tuesday. For those who don’t know, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the book bloggers and list lovers, The Broke and the Bookish, and each week they post a topic for bloggers to respond to.

This week’s theme is a Halloween Freebie, to tie in with Halloween just round the corner. The topics can range from ten scary books to favourite horror novels to scary books on my TBR, and so on, and so forth. I’m not a huge fan of horror, reading a bit of Gothic literature is about as “spooky” as I ever get. So the suggestion I really like for a topic is top ten characters I’d like to dress up as for Halloween. Now, I’m not much of a costume person, mostly because I don’t really “celebrate” Halloween, and I haven’t dressed up since I was, what, 10? So this is a chance to actually explore the desire to be some of my favourite characters from all manner of books and films.

  1. Mildred Hubble – The Worst Witch books by Jill Murphy (I have actually done this costume before, it’s pretty easy and I loved the books as a child)
  2. Eowyn – Lord of the Rings trilogy by JRR Tolkien (mainly the film, that Shieldmaiden dress, k thanks)
  3. Kaz Brekker – Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (because Kaz)
  4. Lila Bard – A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab (she’s basically a pirate, duh)
  5. Kell – A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab (he has a coat, I have a thing for coats, if you don’t believe me, ask anyone who knows me)
  6. Captain Jack Sparrow – Pirates of the Caribbean films (again, he has a coat, and a pirate hat)
  7. Hermione Granger – Harry Potter by JK Rowling (it’s Hermione, do I need more of a reason?)
  8. Anna Valerious – from Van Helsing (basically I’d kill to look as good as Kate Beckinsale does in that corset/trousers/killer boots combo)
  9. Enjolras – Les Misérables by Victor Hugo (mainly the musical version, so I would get to wear the xylophone jacket)
  10. Loki – from the Marvel Cinematic Universe films (he has a cool costume, obviously, and it would be such fun to wave that sceptre around)

As you might have noticed – I have a thing for pirates, general badass ladies, people with cool coats, or all of the above. I don’t think I need to justify enjoying any of those aspects, really, I’m sure you all get it!


So that was my Top Ten Tuesday featuring characters I’d love to dress up as for Halloween. Which characters would you choose to dress up as?

    The last time I did something Halloween related, I dressed up as Indigo Montoya. Since he’s from a movie based on a book, I think he counts. :) If I got to do so again, I think I might go for comfort and pick Arthur Dent from the Hitchhiker’s Guide.
    My TTT

      He absolutely counts! Incidentally I’ve still never seen/read Princess Bride – I need to correct that! Haha Arthur Dent would be a fun character to dress as, dressing gown and all, just don’t forget your towel ;)

      • Caitlin Stern 27/10/2016 / 05:00

        Oh, the book is strange and wonderful, and the movie is funny and full of action. I definitely recommend.
        You always need to know where your towel is. :D

        I’ll definitely have to read/watch it soon then- I’ve been meaning to for years! :P

    I would love to dress up as Lila or Kaz because = Coats and pirates XD Great choices I would probably dress as Luna Lovegood if it was a HP character she’s so quirky an fun :D

    • Emma 26/10/2016 / 08:44

      You had me at coat and/or pirate tbh – I’m so fickle, give me a character with a good coat and I’ll love them! :P I adore Luna, it would be such fun to dress up as her.

    Wow, Enjolras is a really good character I didn’t even consider. That vest is absolutely to die for! You’d probably have to find a curly blonde wig to complete the Aaron Tveit-realness, but those are pretty easy to come by, hahaha.

    The easiest character for me to dress up as for Halloween would have to be Ginny Weasley; I share a passing resemblance with Bonnie Wright to begin with, and I already have a Quidditch broom.

    • Emma 26/10/2016 / 08:43

      Enjolras has an amazing costume, as far as musical theatre costumes go, and it’s so iconic to me because I love the musical. My hair is brown so I’d definitely need a wig to complete the look haha.

      Ooh that’s so cool you have a broomstick and having a passing resemblance to Bonnie Wright is so convenient! :P
