Last minute literary Halloween costumes

It's Halloween and you don't have a costume?  Have no fear because I have the perfect solution for you in the form of some of my favorite literary characters!

Alona Dare from The Ghost and The Goth Series- Former Homecoming queen turned to Queen of the Dead, is the perfect last minute Halloween costume. All you need is a plain white t-shirt and a pair of red gym shorts. Really want to add to the costume? Go for a blonde wig, Homecoming sash, and some tire marks on the shirt. Need something for your significant other to wear? Just put him in all black and he can go as Will, The Goth.

Frannie from the Personal Demons series - A hot girl with special talents who falls for a demon, who wouldn't want to be Frannie? All you need is a white tank top, low rise jeans, and a giant cross necklace. If you really want to add to the look you can pal around with a guy dressed as a demon and another dressed as an angel.

Evie from the Paranormalcy trilogy- A pink dress and a blonde wig are the main components to setting the stage as this IPCA paranormal fighter. If you really want to add some authenticity get an arsenal of pink weaponry and bring a date who dresses as a water shifter.

Malini from the Soulkeepers series- Need a costume that is a little bit scary and a little out of the ordinary? Once Malini finds out what she is, it's not only great for her, but it's a great costume for you! Wear a red dress and white gloves, for extra authenticity you can have one of the gloved hand be made of bones and walk around with a boy who carries a water bottle.

Hopefully that gets you some ideas to work off of. Do you have any literary character costume ideas? Are you dressing as a literary character for Halloween?


  1. I'm not feeling super creative costume-wise this Halloween. Just preparing for NaNoWriMo, I guess.

    Happy Halloween!

  2. I think a Katniss costume might be kind of easy, as long as you had a bow and arrow prop!


You should leave me a comment. It would probably make me smile and then I will probably comment back. Unless you are a spambot. Then I will probably just ignore you.
