Figuring out what to be for Halloween is one of life’s greatest pleasures, especially as a literary fanatic! Impress all your bookish friends this year with these fun and creative literary-inspired Halloween costume ideas.
Become your favorite heroine with just a few fun pieces—a magnifying glass, a plaid skirt, and a Nancy Drew novel of course!
A Handmaid from The Handmaid’s Tale
I have a feeling this is going to be a popular one this year, and I’d recommend just buying it straight from a costume store (like this one!).
Charlotte from Charlotte’s Web
Putting together a spider costume is pretty easy, and to make sure nobody gets confused about which spider you are you can always go with a name tag that says “Charlotte” OR carry a copy of Charlotte’s Web in your candy bag. Score!
Who wouldn’t want to dress up as one of the most beloved children’s book characters of all time? Take a note from this group of teachers with a black sweater vest, apron, and Amelia’s famous hat!
Crosley the Crocodile
Of course, the Night Buddies characters are a blast to both read and dress up as! It’s not the easiest thing in the world to find a ready-made red crocodile costume, but you can always get creative with what you have!
