Welcome back to another Top 10 Tuesday, an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is a Halloween Themed Freebie. So naturally I took this as my cue to bust out the most badass, most gorgeous, most daringly sexy bookish costumes I could find. Is today’s post basically a compilation/vision board of all the costumes I want to wear this year? Yeah, pretty much. 😛 So let’s get right to it!
1. Rylee Adamson from the Tracker series by Shannon Mayer
Because who doesn’t want to carry two katanas on their back?
2. Khalessi from the Song of Ice and Fire series
I’d never be able to pull off the bright blonde in a million years, trust me I know this from experience *cringe*, but obviously the fair skinned lovelies of the world can nail this one! 😀
3. Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games Trilogy
It’s become obvious to me that I want an excuse to carry around weaponry. *shrugs*
4. Celia from Night Circus
I may not have been the biggest fan of Celia. I was Team Marco in case your wondering. But I think dressing up as a ring master would be pretty sweet. Anyone have a top hat I can borrow?
P.S. There is a cane, again, this costume would satisfy my need for props.
5. Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter Series
The utter cuteness of this is too much! I love it. I feel like this costume would be fairly easy to make with normal people clothes and some pre-planning in terms of a quick trip to the fabric shop for some gold and crimson ribbon.
6. Celaena from A Throne of Glass
Haven’t read the books yet. I’ll get there. But this is seriously awesome! Because…well… swords!
The original bookworm! If only I had kept my Belle costume from high school when I played her for the school play….
8. Tris from the Divergent series
This would be a super easy costume if you’ve got some drawing skills. Throw on a black tank, and bust out your black eyeliner. If you don’t have drawing skills like me, then it’d print out the birds, outline them in the black liner and then press the image onto your skin to get a faint impression, a friend helping you out here would be great. Once you get a faint outline, fill your birds in. Sort of like adult coloring books but upping the ante!
9. Effie from the Hunger Games series
I highly overestimate my make-up skills. I WISH I had the prowess to do this. I think I like the idea of doing this rather than accepting that the execution would be horrendous. I would ruin it, I’m sure. I may still try it, just to prove to myself that I should never try it again 😀
10. Max from Where the Wild Things Are
If it’s cold where you are, then covering up is a necessity for Halloween. I like the idea of being able to wear a grey sweatsuit and simply adding some accents to make things monsterly. Plus, her eye makeup is sweet, so there is always that!
Well that was fun! I’m still not sure what I’ll be doing for Halloween in terms of dressing up. But at least I have a ton of options! 😀
