Literary Paraphernalia: Bookish Halloween Costumes

With only two weeks left before Halloween, it’s time for people like me—people who can’t even decide what to eat for lunch, let alone who to dress up as on one night every year—to quit procrastinating and choose a costume.

As cosplayers can attest to, Halloween is the one time of year it’s socially acceptable for us book nerds to dress up as our favorite characters. For us to go beyond our imaginations and don a new personality and new look for a night. I scoured the Internet (a.k.a used my googling powers) to find some literary costumes for this week’s Literary Paraphernalia—for little ones and adults, from the highly-detailed to the seriously-lazy. It’s all here.
